Chrysler decided to protect their JEEP Brand and keep the FT 4X4 with the off-road Jeep Liberty and keep the Nitro on-road. I too wanted FT 4 wheel drive but don't think it will happen, now. Could change in the future but the 08 Nitro does not show this option now as the 07 Nitro did, but was never available. Still really like my R/T and when the warranty was changed in the United States to lifetime on power-train, I bought one the next day!
