fellow jeepers! I experienced this the other day and wanted to get opinions.

I wanted to add this in this post because it just happened to me yesterday.

Where I work I have a gravel road and when I was leaving I tapped my throttle pretty hard and let off quickly!

What I got in return was about 30’ of burnout! This surprised the heck out of me because I was only expecting about 5’ of get up and go! I was not trying to burn out just getting into it a little. As soon as my throttle released I instantly thought of this post and this accident!

Has anyone else experienced this sort of thing with their JL? I have the 3.6 with the auto trans!

And before anyone gets the idea that maybe I didn’t know what I was doing or what actually happened. I have spent all my life working on cars trucks and Jeeps. I’ve done numerous street racers and know the difference between a little action and a sticking throttle. What I experienced was a momentary sticking of the throttle!

I rarely ever tap the throttle on my Jeep. It’s generally easy going or get into it completely! Never just a simple foot tap andrelease!

If anyone else thinks of this, may I ask that you give this a try a few times when it may be safe! Let’s see if this may actually be an issue not know or discussed yet!

What if it turns out we do see a problem and the driver was actually not completely at fault but maybe taken by surprised and we find we can duplicate it?

Just asking fellow jeepers!

Yes - I've noticed similar a few times, but not on gravel. Just made mental not to not do that, although I do find it weird.

I feel that I need to try this just for my own knowledge and piece of mind.

My experience I wouldn't call an "issue", maybe different from OP. A few times I've given the ol' Jeep a good amount of gas, but then let up completely right away. RPMs stayed high for a second or two instead of sharply decreasing upon release. Found it odd but not crazy, I was on pavement so didn't really matter much.
