That first rear end gear oil change matters most, better to change it at 10k miles or even less. P.S. Just do it yourself, it's easier than doing an oil change.^^ Nice.
looks like the Willys package comes with the LSD and I’m assuming Jeep is still using the Trac Lok unit. Heads up that this is a problematic unit in the JK’s and I’m assuming it is still the same unit so probably for the JL’s too. I would be religious about changing the rear end fluid every 20k and hope that it doesn’t self destruct. About to put in a Truetrac in mine to replace the stock junk. Hopefully the JL unit doesn’t suffer from this same weakness.
Looks great, I Just ordered the same one. 2ID, Second to None!Hi All, new Jeep owner. Just picked up this girl yesterday. Sarge Green was hard to find in my area so I had it built. I was impressed at how aggressive looking the Firestones are. I would love to get a slight lift and maybe 33"s or 35"s, but hate to waste the perfectly good new tires. Anyway, happy to finally be a Jeep owner!
I had no problems at all! I've taken them off and put them on several times now with no issues.Looks good. Did you have issues putting your doors back on?
My hinges shifted when I put the Jpeggz on for an afternoon.
It was a pain in the butt to realign the hinges after I used them.
We've had at least one manual transmission car in our fleet since 1999. I've read this elsewhere, but I honestly wonder if Jeep made the 6MT so bad that it turns so many people off it'll be dead by the end of the JL run. I still feel like I haven't quite mastered the catch point for 1st or R after 5K miles.For those. with manual transmission... do you find yourself driving in 4th for the majority of the time. I got on the highway for the 1st time today and seems like 5/6 doesn't give enough power to maintain highway speeds...
this is my first Jeep and i'm not looking to win any races, but would like to maintain 70/75 when I can - observing all posted speed limit signs, of course
This was the exact same thing that i was experiencing.. I was on a 3 hr drive (mainly hwy) and felt like i was downshifting at 70+ mph a lot. And not that MPG is a term that Jeep owners necessarily care about (it is a pretty gauge), but I got getter mileage in 4th vs 5th/6th at the aforementioned speeds.I agree that on the highway it can feel lethargic, especially hilly highways I find myself downshifting into 5th, sometimes 4th. Not a lot of torque in 6th at lower RPMs.
