I now own both. Still the 2.0, hands down. Even at full sing in the rpms. I don’t think my 2.0 eTorque is a freak. shrug

The v6 idles rougher and is more noisy in general.

I test drove over 100 different wranglers for the express purpose of comparing the 2.0 and 3.6. Plus, it was just plain fun. On long Island, at sea level, not once did the 3.6 feel more spirited than the 2.0. The 3.6's consistently felt sluggish without a heavy foot and ample rpms. As a mechanic, it felt like it had to work harder whereas the 2.0's low and mid range torque did a great job of masking the actual weight of the vehicle. Even with over 4" of lift and 38x13.5's, that off idle torque advantage has helped to push the need of a regearing far down the priority list.

That isn’t true. The 21s with the 2.0T do not have the etorque, I believe it’s only the 3.6 models now.
He asked how to tell if his 3.6 has eTorque. Neither of us were talking about the 2 liter. Sorry to confuse you.

This is good to hear. Been wondering and debating on going with 37s but didn’t want to have to regear any time soon. I did it myself on my JL sport and it’s a bit of work. Didn’t want to have to on my Rubicon.

Good looking Jeep!
