My gripes

fuel overflow - each time, every time. you simply can't allow it to go until it stops - as i learned the first time i ever filled up (which stained my bumper)

rear wind shield wiper - the box for that thing is seriously massive, i think i would much rather have the 25% of the window it uses.

access to the rear seat. this design is terrible - the thing moves up like three inches :@ how is anyone supposed to get in there? and the seatbelt is connected to the seat... poor design. i miss the yj where the whole seat flipped up.

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

Yeah, if there's one thing I miss from the TJ it's the flip forward seat for back seat access.

I've been having opposite problem with fuel filling though. Instead of overflow, I have to fill up my gas tank in increments as it won't stay pumping no matter how I jury-rig the stupid thing!

Haven't had the fule fill issue. Sold the hard top. And as far as the back seat access goes, I pulled the back seat and tossed it in storage. Problem solved. But I'm lucky, kids are older and have wheels.

the fuel thing sucks. i havent had that problem (knock on wood), but id take it to the dealer and be like wtf.

yea that thing sucks on the back window, i drove with my soft top for like 6 months and now that i put my hardtop on i know what ur talking about. but u dont need to look out of ur rear window, 18 wheelers back up all the time and they just use there side mirrors.

the seat issue in the 2 door does suck. but complaning about that is like when people complain about lack of power, you knew it when u bought it.
