Bwah-hah-hah! They've got almost 10k on 'em now--not quite as burly as they once were. I'm going for 33s next, but I don't think you'll want them by the time I'm done. I've always assumed there were like dozens of Rubi pull offs on Craigslist at any given time . . . not true?

yeah man I'm leaning more towards just putting 33's on but I've got 3.21 gears and enjoy such great MPG that it may give me a heart attack to go so large. At the same time, would be really good to see my rig sitting on 33 duratracs or KM2s....mmmm new tires.

My user name is now Pat@FieldsJeep, and yes I copied Geoff at bestop. Thought it was just a little more professional.

Good to know, thanks. Probably for the better, given that if we ever meet in person I'd have a near irresistible urge to call you "Pato".

Yeah, I'm sure I'm not in the list since its a 2011. I just think it's interesting that the ECO light problem was fixed for 2011, and yet the "fix" for 2010 is to turn it off. Why not just reprogram it to work like the 2011?

Agreed but I wouldn't use it.

Just to throw this in. MY JK was built in 6/2010 as a 2010 and does not have the ECO light function, just the MPG read out. I too find the 1-2 shift tough, typically when its cold.

By ECO light, do you mean when pushing the button and swapping between displays and one that says ECO and ocasionally ECO ON? Thats the only one I have, on a March 2010 buillt petrol 6 speed.

Yes, when ECO mode is on, it should start telling you when you are driving in a fuel-saving manner. Unless you have a 2010 manual with the update, apparently.

I took my Sahara in today for an oil change and tire rotation. When I went to pay they said they also did a flash upgrade on the pcm. From the paperwork:

PERFORM RRT 10-066 RAPID RESPONSE
REPROGRAM PCM TO LATEST REVISION
BILL CODE - W
181906H5 REPROGRAM PCM

Has anyone figured out exactly what this upgrade addressed? The only thing I noticed right off was the compass responds to direction changes alot faster. I track my mileage and maintenance with software, I'll let you know if I see a difference in mpg in the future.

Just ask them to look for any RRTs, including 10-066. It'll pop up with your VIN.

I do all my maintenance myself so besides the BS the dealership might pitch me on (clean TB, flush coolant, blah blah blah) when I bring it in for K13 brake recall, do they normally run VIN to see if there are other recalls or updates or do I have to mention them specifically?

They can run your VIN to see all available recalls or updates for your Jeep. The PCM flash if your wondering was only for 2010 JKs made between a few months of production. Your 2008 Sahara shouldn't be included for that one.

If anyone is following this thread, I've been thru 2 tanks of gas since the pcm update was done and see no noticable difference in mpg. Like I posted before, the only thing I've noticed from the update was the compass response.

Hey guys,

I just had my 2010 at the dealer this past Saturday for oil change. Came to p/u and they told me they attemted to do the flash update....But it "didnt take", and they had to wait until Monday to contact Chrysler for help.
They were sincere and gave me a loaner....Figured sh** happens and they would take care of it.
latest update is they got a new ECU from Chrysler, put it in, same thing happened. They called Chrysler and the tech asked the dealer if i had a aftermarket remote starter or alarm .....and I have a remore starter. Well, this guy told the dealer that the remote start if affecting the update.
So the dealer called the guy who installed my starter to try to work this out.
I spoke to the starter install guy yesterday after he talked to the dealer.....I've known this guy for a long time and he claims to have NEVER run into this before.
So the question is......Has anybody who has had this flash done have a remote start?

Thanks,
Bill

UPDATE.............Now the dealer doesn't feel the problem is remote starter related. They disconnected it, tried again and they still cant get the flash/update to load onto my PCM.
He said this was the first time they loaded this flash, so Im thinking this may be a brand new update....Just be careful and ask about it if you guys are going in for service in the near future.

Hope this gets solved soon
