  1. 3.6L ESS Aux Battery Bypass

    You made some very valid points; especially the one concerning putting it back to fully stock form for warranty work. Makes sense to do the fuseable link between N1 & N2 then disconnect the negative lead from the ESS battery. I will leave it mostly stock, add the N1 to N2 jumper with the...
  2. 3.6L ESS Aux Battery Bypass

    Thanks for this info. This is exactly what I was looking for in regards to removing the aux ESS battery and connecting the main to N1 & N2. I have my ESS disabled via the disconnection of the hood open/close switch, are you familiar with this tactic? I see from your other thread you used a...
  3. 3.6L ESS Aux Battery Bypass

    My question of the PCR disconnection from N3 and removal of the PCR from my vehicle was more or less answered by you with your statement; as long as N1 is powered it will crank and not think the ESS battery is dead. What I meant by "lockdown" is the inability of the vehicle to crank or start...
  4. 3.6L ESS Aux Battery Bypass

    Jerry/Andy, Thanks Andy for the excellent overview of the entire problem and complete circuit function analysis. Thanks to Jerry's many posts on this entire thread, with all the circuit maps and schematics; I was fine with my upcoming circuit mods concerning the removal of the aux battery and...
  5. 3.6L ESS Aux Battery Bypass

    Gee-pah, Thanks for taking the time to respond in a very detailed manner. I'm very much aware of your explained technique of linking N1 to N2 with a fusable link connection. I was referring to the post #198 from this thread shown below. MoparTH said he removed the aux battery and all associated...
  6. 3.6L ESS Aux Battery Bypass

    After reading through this entire topic; this is my summation of how to modify a 2018 3.6l to run without an aux battery and not have to have it reflashed at the dealer as detailed above. Anybody, please correct me or add any additional steps not called out below Disconnect the power control...
  7. 3.6L ESS Aux Battery Bypass

    I was leaning that direction as well. Many people on this forum have did some aux battery system mod or removal with no complaint of any other malfunction.
  8. 3.6L ESS Aux Battery Bypass

    Just spoke with my local dealer concerning the removal of the aux battery and any warranty issues. They had a Rubicon come in that lost the front diff locking capability with a removed aux battery. They had to put the battery back in to get it to function properly. Have you had any problems...
  9. Manual Transmission and T-Case Fluid Change Today

    Good to know how rugged our Jeep’s really are.
  10. Rubicon fuel economy (3.6L manual transmission)?

    It's possible the engine may still be a little tight. I was seeing improvements, slight, up to around 5K.
  11. Rubicon fuel economy (3.6L manual transmission)?

    How many miles do you have? The engine may not be fully broken in yet.
  12. Aux Battery replacement the easy way... pull the fender flare

    Excellent write-up, thanks.
  13. For those planning to keep their 3.6L Jeeps for years: Story of 626k miles on Pentastar and still going!

    Nice to read Chrysler is building an excellent durable V6 engine. I’ve been wondering for a long time, since 2012, what the ultimate longevity of the Pentastar would be. Time to start a debate, let the rant begin; let’s see a 2.0 make it past 200k. 626k for a 2.0 is a pipe dream.
  14. Caution: Broken Body Mount Bolt When Installing Frame Mount Rock Sliders / Rails / Sidesteps

    I was thinking the same thing along the lines of pneumatic power vs battery. I’ve always used the impact with at least 100 psi; probably more. So this makes a lot of sense why my impact wasn’t hammering. Maybe all the other people who had good results, didn’t snap a bolt, were using high psi or...
  15. Caution: Broken Body Mount Bolt When Installing Frame Mount Rock Sliders / Rails / Sidesteps

    There are impacts and there are hammer impacts; correct me if I'm wrong. I used a pneumatic, non-hammer, impact. Mine just rotates without any shock value with a high torque capacity. Mine is labeled "Impact" on its case, but I've never experienced a hammering effect from it. Yes, there are...
  16. Caution: Broken Body Mount Bolt When Installing Frame Mount Rock Sliders / Rails / Sidesteps

    Yes, for the most part; I’ve read this entire thread. When I removed my body mount bolts, I didn’t even know about this problem. The majority of people using impacts didn’t break bolts. I did say majority; not everyone was so lucky. It’s simple physics; a body in motion stays in motion. Once...
  17. Caution: Broken Body Mount Bolt When Installing Frame Mount Rock Sliders / Rails / Sidesteps

    It's called momentum. Using an impact works because you don't keep on stopping and starting the torque application. it also builds up a slight amount of heat and helps soften the red Loctite as it withdraws.
  18. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    Thanks Dan for all of your responses; you caused me to breath a sigh of relief. I’ve read many of your posts especially the one where you talked about heavy duty mudding on the KO2 post with your 35’s. I deduced if anyone could be having clutch problems; you would surely experience it. I was...
  19. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    What would be good to know, how many people on this forum have had clutch problems, what their mileage is, how much heavier non-stock armor with larger than stock tires installed. Also how many people tow and get close to the 2k & 3.5k weight tow limit.
  20. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    The only way a clutch pressure plate assy can get that hot is if it’s drastically slipping. As a few people have experienced; you will know the clutch is slipping. Punch the gas pedal in 4th through 6th gear; if it bogs out; your clutch is ok. If it over accelerates, watch the tach rapidly move...
