I appreciate the feedback. I've been looking for a std. 6 cyl. (e.g. no eTorque) Wrangler for a while but they're just not available, unless it's a man. trans.. The manual is fine with me but the auto keeps it simple for others in the family that would need to drive it occasionally - including my 17 yo son who just got his license less than a year ago. The other option is the turbo 4 cyl. but I'm hesitant to go that route (mainly for reliability and possibly re-sale).
