Exactly the problem with these "special editions". They are simply stickers and other cosmetic changes. What a waste of time. But I suppose they may make some nice profit on those stickers.

Exactly as you said. As long as Wrangler continues to sell all vehicles made, we can expect no real changes, just eye candy. I guess I really can't blame them. Why make a top of the line version that only returns a minimal increase in profit. There are probably only a couple thousand people like me who would buy a hemi Rubicon with a manual six speed if they made it. The numbers just don't justify the effort. A car company would have to really be interested in WHAT THEY BUILT as opposed to HOW MUCH THEY PROFIT in order to make people like me happy.

 Re: Video: Mike Manley Talks Jeep at NAIAS
The video still doesn't work but I found it elsewhere on the net. After listening to Mike Manley, it is CLEAR that he doesn't understand very much about JEEP. His comment about the special models being sold out is naive. The Dealers have placed orders for the projected volume to be built, none are SOLD and in the hands of the customer. May not be a big deal but I already know of several dealers who are dismayed about "more decals and stickers". The "let's wow them with stickers" mentality does not seem to be working for Chrysler with their Dodge Challenger. Most Dealer lots are bloated with new Challengers covered with all kinds of stripes and decals along with fake hood scoops. Time to grow up and get serious about product content and value that the customer will appreciate. Manley needs to lose the J.C. Whitney catalog and get to work!! JEEP deserves better!!!

I watched the video on a different site. You get a sense that Manly just does not get it. The special editions are the perfect example in how clueless these guys are.

Actually, he made a good point about the special edition Islander: It's sold out. So it seems that there's something that Manly does "get".

I'm with you, Porter. For a variety of reasons, I just can't stand this guy.
