    Folks,

    can we stay on topic for a bit...... which battery pack models have you successfully jumped a JL with and, since it may be important, which JL was it..... 3.6 or 2.0 BSG.

    folks, there are a ton of very helpful threads already on the way a JL is wired......I can read those. We can all read those...... I really want tips for jumper packs that work in real life.....

    Yep. Started right up. I’ve also jumped by dad’s V8 Tundra without any issues.

    I have in the last week been accused of being people I don’t know, even now when I reference my own posts!

    Ladies: if you want to call me Fabio I’m all ears.

    There isn't a definitive answer as to which ones work and which ones don't as each situation is different. The better battery packs will have a higher success rate. Figure out what your comfortable spending, then buy the next level up. :)

    One thing to think about is the Costco Cobra H2O jump pack has Costco's lifetime no questions guarantee.

    ...to state another way: the extent to which your JL's battery[ies] are charged, even if unable to crank the engine, can vary even if you could keep the power pack's power constant between tests.

    At least on the 3.6L JL, Jerry and I discuss here how one might, with Jerry's fused jumpering of the N1 and N2 high amp fuses in the Power Distribution Center hack, connect a power pack directly to the ESS/Aux battery to increase the chances that a pack will get the 3.6L to crank.
