I realize that .After 25 years of truck driving you get to understand clutches . Low torque engines combined with underrated clutches that are installed to keep the petal light.could get expensive seeing as there is no warranty . However time will tell .
I have not had it slip under load. but there was an time when i had to slip the clutch to keep from stalling, while reversing up a slight incline.
And you could smell the clutch did not like it.Were as in my older Jeeps there would never been an issue , with the same amount of slippage .
With the addition of 5:13 gears .my Rubicon is now barely acceptable .but the clutch still is highly suspect , for having a long life .
"Some" people love theirs ,but after 45 years of owning manual jeeps. i find them very unconvincing.
I tow as well , No more then 2000 LBS. Owning nothing but manual Jeeps since my 71 cj 5 and 20 years of Truck driving ( 140,000 lbs) you learn what works and what does not. The low torque 3.6 fails when mated to a manual . can it be done ? sure! rev, and slip the clutch . But for me...
