not for everyone
Obviously this truck is not for you. I'm sorry to hear of your troubles.
Objective retort to follow:
We would love to see these chips in your rims. Most a pic. But let's be realistic, if you wanted to go burning through gravel roads, you probably shouldn't be doing it with a truck completely built to race. You should have stuck with the regular wrangler. That why I bought one of those too.
Break dust! Come on man. Look at vetts, rovers, jags, and any race car/truck with massive brembos. That isn't a complaint. They all do that. I do have to say that compared the my 09 jeep srt8, break dust has been cut way down and break caliper size has increased.
Leaks, no car is perfect. That's a small annoying gripe and an easy fix. I had it in many of my cars/trucks in the past. Definitely not good though. Let's not get to carried away with how dramatic it is.
Seats, I love them. I would gripe that they are better than my parents rovers though. Guess your butt is shaped oddly, but I think they are very nice. No numb butts for me on road trips.
Paddle shifters are loose, but haven't considered that as horrible and I have not heard the ting you hear. Go in a luxury car and many are plastic. I was impressed they were metal.
Carpet is no difference than what I have seen in other cars of all brands.
Water ribbons? Really?
Roll the window down in any car and shut the door. I have not heard one car with a solid close with the window down. Go to an auto show and you will notice that as you hop in and out of every car. Its because there is no support on the top of the window. Better yet, get into a rover sport and close the door with the window up, it sounds worse than when jeeps windows are down.
This jeep is not for you, and I would love to see what car would be. Guess you will just have to spend more $$$ and you will notice that for $60,000, this truck rocks. You will have those same problems in a truck for double the price. Then you will realize the gem that this Jeep is.
Sorry bud. Hope you find a brand you like. But, with those gripes, it is gonna be tough.
