LX why only rwd ?

I guess that's my question

Why is the LX only RWD ?


the lhs was RWD or FWD

why couldn';t they have made an LHS II that was both RWD and FWD


a single line that could do either , changing monthly as demand was placed on each type ?

is the mighty MB not able to do FWD ? :alien:

The LHS was RWD? On what planet? :crazy:

The LX's get AWD this fall which gives them two options over the LHS's one option of FWD.

From what YB and Don have been telling me, the Transmission on the second LH can be converted to make the car rear wheel drive, I'm not sure how or what that all involves. I think i smell someones next mod. ;)

Dodge could a changed the LHS line to rwd in about a day's work from what I 've heard ,

but the lhs was too popular as fwd so they did not...

Imagine what LHSII coulda been .......:blush:

just cause MB can't do fwd does not mean that the option should been thrown out..... maybe they think the idea is to citroen

it only makes sense to cover all your options.......

btW the Avenger concept does the rwd thing with the 4 speed tranny.

I can't understand the passion for FWD? You'd actually want to convert a RWD to FWD?

I've driven RWD in every winter I lived in MI. Plenty of multi-foot snow storms. No problems in my Mustang, Fiero or pickups. Alot of it has to do with knowing how to drive and not just pressing the accelerator.

Actually the Prowler uses the same trans as the LH models do, it's just mounted in the back. The drive shaft is always spinning at whatever RPM the engine is spinning at. The trans that the LX uses is the RLE42 which is used on one of the Jeep models. I would love to convert my Trep to RWD but a couple of things are holding me back, front suspension and back suspension. The tranny is the easy part.
