  1. US vs. Italy 2.0T Engine

    Aisin has a US manufacturing plant for its high volume transmissions. Thus why the manual is from Japan 3.6L was built in the US, but they moved production to Mexico for the 2nd gen Ecodiesel gets the ZF-built 8HP75. It’s a different transmission
  2. US vs. Italy 2.0T Engine

    Why is that odd? Stellantis/Jeep produce the 850RE transmission in Kokomo, Indiana
  3. 8 speed auto in 22' JL was impressive

    There was no eTorque in 2014. Ram didn’t get it until 2019
  4. Great deals on extended warranties?

    Clay owns Robbins CDJR, he was the cheapest when I shopped around [email protected] 785-789-3940 www.robbinsmotors.com
  5. US vs. Italy 2.0T Engine

    850RE is made by Stellantis in the Kokomo, Indiana plant... not ZF
  6. Official: Hurricane Twin-Turbo 3.0 I-6 Coming for Jeep - HO with 510HP and 500 ft-lbs!

    A lower numerical ratio means a physically bigger gear to handle the torque input. I don’t know the D478’s dimensions but I imagine they are very similar to NSG370, which was 25” long vs 32” for the TR-6060
  7. Jeep Inline 6 Engine to Debut in April

    because that discussion was specifically about TJ’s refresh
  8. Jeep Inline 6 Engine to Debut in April

    I never said TJ got the AW4 in 2003... it didn’t
  9. Jeep Inline 6 Engine to Debut in April

    That’s incorrect. 1994 YJ also used a 3-speed automatic transmission (30RH/32RH) Wrangler did not get a 4-speed automatic until the 2003 model year Maybe you are thinking of XJ or ZJ
  10. Jeep Inline 6 Engine to Debut in April

    6-speed manual didn’t come until 2005. Jeep did replace the 3-speed automatic with the 4-speed auto in 2003 though
  11. Found this for our ZF8

    Mine’s a 1500, the HD’s use a different beefed up version (8HP75–LCV). eTorque is only 49 lb-ft and doesn’t add to peak torque. So it would make no sense to change transmissions for that. Ironically, Dodge still uses the smaller 8HP70 in the 6.4L Durango even with its 470 lb-ft torque
  12. Jeep Inline 6 Engine to Debut in April

    TJ got entirely different seats for its “refresh”... new cushions, new frame (1” lower), redesigned contour and completely different fabric... that’s not “a color change” Same as JK’s seats were changed in ‘13
  13. Jeep Inline 6 Engine to Debut in April

    TJ got different seats, new fabric/ patterns, revised dashboard, revised gauge cluster, new steering wheel, new soft top... basically the same as JK
  14. Jeep Inline 6 Engine to Debut in April

    TJ also received a “mid cycle refresh”
  15. Found this for our ZF8

    Chrysler uses blueprints but not exact ZF design, they are allowed to make changes under the license agreement. ZF makes the 8HP70/8HP75 in both the U.S. (SC) and Germany Yes, my 8HP75 runs significantly cooler than the 195-199F my previous 8HP70 used to sit at while towing 7-8k lbs
  16. Found this for our ZF8

    My old ZF 8HP70 stayed in the 195-199F range while my current ZF 8HP75 runs 168-172F Chrysler’s 850RE seems to run a tad warmer than the ZF units
  17. 3.6 vs 2.0 turbo?? Which is better??

  18. 3.6 vs 2.0 turbo?? Which is better??
