Is this a concern with the JL? My Grand Cherokee’s stop/start system wasn’t working for about a month and navigation system glitches every few weeks. Battery gave out a year after ownership, too.]]>

So today I drove a Rubicon 3.6L 6-speed. I wasn't happy with the power. I'm hoping that the turbo-4 or even better 3.0L diesel will be available with the manual transmission.

I know it's still speculation and that the odds are against me, but, are there any hopes of landing a turbo engine with a manual transmission in a JL?]]>

So I drove a Rubicon 2-door today and it was surprisingly small on the inside. I'm 6'0 260 lbs and really didn't quite fit. Are there any expectations that the JL will be roomier for the driver? My seat was all the way back too.

Also, any chance the dash will be lowered some for better visibility?

I'm hoping for more shoulder and hip room, more leg room, lower dash for better visibility, and more glass for better visibility all around.]]>

Looks like out of the gate will just be the sport, sahara, and rubicon.

If they don' have things like the freedom, wills, recon,etc it' going to be like going to a ice ceam parlor for choc, vanilla, or strawberry.]]>
