  1. Water-crossings: how to start a stalled manual transmission w/o clutch?

    Yup, for sure. Trouble is most times off road the tires kick up sand, silt mud etc. and if that contaminates the clutch your stuck in the water/mud. https://www.wranglerforum.com/f218/mud-in-clutch-1725177.html
  2. Water-crossings: how to start a stalled manual transmission w/o clutch?

    I just read this on another forum. If you have time, can you verify this process works (allows override of clutch safety) in 4L? https://www.wranglerforum.com/f1082/psa-how-to-use-clutch-interlock-bypass-2351849.html Also on page 294 of the 2018 owner's manual it says: "Four-Wheel Drive...
  3. Water-crossings: how to start a stalled manual transmission w/o clutch?

    s Just read the 2018 online owner's manual and it says inspect clutch vents after off-roading and flush if you suspect water entering. But a flush won't do you good in muddy water (which is probably more common) if you get dirt/debris inside. I hear you, no one wants to stall, but especially...

    Usually you'll want to be in 4-HI with traction control off for mud though, to spin the tires. Good to know about 4-L though.
  7. Water-crossings: how to start a stalled manual transmission w/o clutch?

    Thanks for the reply. The short answer is yes I do plan on it. Out west we have lots of snow melt this year and water crossing will be common to get anywhere on some trails, and it doesn't have to be that deep, only the depth of the clutch/transmission. Not to mention mud and muddy water...
  8. Water-crossings: how to start a stalled manual transmission w/o clutch?

    Hello, I am trying to decide on a manual or auto transmission for a new JLU. I have a strong preference for manual transmissions and will be using the vehicle in remote locations where traditionally manual transmissions have certain advantages. I'm concerned about the push-start, ESS and all...
