  1. Weak Throttle Response on Manual Transmission Models?

    THIS!!! I have a steep driveway, backing up it is damn near a lesson in clutch smoking...haha Try backing up a 2,000lb trailer, total joke, I have to reach down and pull it back into 4LO. I've thought the same thing about a regear, I think 4:88s would be great. Get the little tuner that...
  2. Weak Throttle Response on Manual Transmission Models?

    Yeah since the rubicon has the lower geared transfer case, reverse is fine in 4LO on 33s unless you need wheel speed, like stuck in snow (and some types of mud), then it's wayyy too low.
  3. Weak Throttle Response on Manual Transmission Models?

    I did the same, since it's a newly developed trans there isn't much info, or aftermarket support, or even other gear options from different use-cases of this transmission (i.e. other brands using it, but having it optioned with different gear sets we could steal). But yeah, I'm pretty sure I...
  4. Weak Throttle Response on Manual Transmission Models?

    True. I don't have too much of a problem shifting, the tranny is good with it even though it's a cable shifter, in cases like blasting through deep snow. 4LO and running in gears 3-4-5-6 worked pretty well last winter, as long as I didn't come to a stop and need reverse (too low in 4LO, too...
  5. Weak Throttle Response on Manual Transmission Models?

    Holy shit! All the torques. You'll love that in a jeep. Yeah this is why so many people were pretty excited about the diesel option in the wrangler, seems to make a lot of sense, it's just a little pricey like all diesels.
  6. Weak Throttle Response on Manual Transmission Models?

    Spot on. It's a great transmission, put why the hell they made reverse so damn high is mind boggling. I looked into it to see if there are lower gear options for R but didn't find anything, not surprising I guess since it's new and not used in other applications too much. If you make one you...
  7. Weak Throttle Response on Manual Transmission Models?

    You suggested my problem is I am trying to drive the jeep like a car, so I pointed out a situation I had just mentioned that is most certainly not an issue of "driving it like a car". I don't know how anyone can not admit this high-strung car engine is a bad choice for an off-road vehicle...
  8. Weak Throttle Response on Manual Transmission Models?

    haha, well yeah, high speed limits in MT
  9. Weak Throttle Response on Manual Transmission Models?

    You may have missed my post about getting this turd stuck in snow? 4LO way too low to get any tire speed (required in 30" of snow), and it doesn't have enough torque to spin the tires in 4HI, especially reverse. Any more great input?
  10. Weak Throttle Response on Manual Transmission Models?

    Dude this is sweet, thanks for posting this, ever since mine rolled off the truck I've been wondering how a heavier flywheel would help this V6's horrid off-idle torque. I might try this. Did they have different options for flywheel weights, and if so which weight did you buy?
  11. Weak Throttle Response on Manual Transmission Models?

    This made me chuckle, once I figured out the only way to actually pass someone on the highway without it taking 2 miles is to redline the damn thing.....so get this: In my JLUR with 4:10s: I'm cruising along in 6th gear, 75mph, go to pass someone and shift down straight to THIRD GEAR. LOL it's...
  12. Weak Throttle Response on Manual Transmission Models?

    That's a great idea. It helps a ton on dirt bikes like the old 2 strokes with no off-idle torque, I don't know why I didn't think of it for a JL.
  13. Weak Throttle Response on Manual Transmission Models?

    I would think that a redesigned 3.6 with with larger stroke and smaller bore, but still resulting in the same 3.6liter displacement, wouldn't necessarily use more fuel. Not positive. I'd love to talk with an engine designer on this topic. Yeah holy shit that reverse gear....haha.... another...
  14. Weak Throttle Response on Manual Transmission Models?

    Now there's a 6cyl that's much more suited to off-road. I think they could've designed this 3.6 to be somewhere in the middle, with a larger stroke to improve off-idle torque, but still able to rev better than the old 4.0 so it's better at highway speeds.
  15. Weak Throttle Response on Manual Transmission Models?

    HAHA good point. True on V8s except for the 392 haha, they almost swung the pendulum too far the other way with that jeep, good lord. I'm just asking for something in the middle, maybe a high-torque V6 or a small 4.8 hemi V8 that still gets good mileage. This is why EVs will be so much fun...
  16. Weak Throttle Response on Manual Transmission Models?

    Yep I'm guilty, came from trucks. BUT: this thing has a tow package. Try backing up a trailer and "use the rev range"...hahaha And it designed for off road, i.e. getting buried in mud or snow where you need the lockers (I have, many times). Yes 4LO helps, but in deep snow you need wheel...
  17. Weak Throttle Response on Manual Transmission Models?

    I couldn't imagine a sport with those high gears and '35s, yikes. I'm considering a gear swap to 4:56 and keeping my 33s so this thing has a little more power.
  18. Weak Throttle Response on Manual Transmission Models?

    I have the same issue, this V6 is soooooo gutless off-idle, I swear you could grab the harmonic balancer with a pair of gloves and kill the engine haha Trying to back up a trailer in reverse is embarrassingly bad.....and I have 4:10s. It's basically a car engine stuffed in a 4WD, two totally...
  19. I laughed at all the 392 buyers! 😥 what a dummy.

    Understood, but I think the reasoning was based on the JL's high static compression ratio, and adding boost beyond that will of course make for a real high cylinder pressure issue. I'm guessing the Maserati V6 had lower C/R since it was designed with boost in mind? Beyond that, I love the idea...
  20. I laughed at all the 392 buyers! 😥 what a dummy.

    Ummmm.....if your JL is only geting 10mpg something is wrong with it. Or you're looking it what it does in 4lo all day long?
