They also took away our Off-Road Pages, there's a 2018 "JK" model, your engine stopping and starting at a stop light is normal, and there's a major steering lockup issue in case anyone hasn't heard. :captain:

Seriously though, I want to know if the Turbo 2.0 has 2 or 3 batteries. And I also want to know if the 2019 3.6L with eTorque is going to have 2 or 3 batteries. And I also want to know how many batteries the diesel is going to have if we ever end up getting that at all.

LMAO. 37 is working well for me, the dealer supplied 45 was not so much.
Yes 37 has been great. Mine came 42-43 cold and would warm up to 45-46. Did not handle the way a brand new vehicle should. Im not sure why they continually provide such high pressure in their brand new vehicles when the door jam states a much lower pressure.

I am curious when the diesel will get eTorque. Given diesel on my truck was a 8k option (or felt like it). Diesel and eTorque should be a 10k option...

Plus my diesel has 2 primary batteries, so that plus’s the ESS and eTorque would be 4 batteries

Two. The third battery and associated wiring burns up, leaving two batteries under the hood remaining. :giggle:

I voted no because I didn't until I saw the video from Jeepinformant. What amazes me is with all the warning stickers all over most new vehicles, this is actually a case where a warning sticker might actually be a good idea.
