I am new to the hole jeep idea. I have been a car and bike guy for as long as i have been around. Well now i want to be a jeep and bike guy. I know very little about jeeps, 4X4, off road, or even trucks.
Can someone point me to a good site to learn? I do know i will be getting a 2011 or 12 unlimited rubi. (unlimited rubi is a-lot to start with but i like the best and have the funds)
You're at a great site for ask jeep specific questions. If you're curious about how engines, or 4wd, or suspensions, etc. work generally, try googling the topic--you'll usually get a wikihow article or something similar that gives the general explanation.
Also try searching your questions here in the JK section. The typical "common" questions have been asked and answered many times, so you can get an overall sense of the answers. For example, try the "advanced search" to look for title threads containing "2011 2012." You'll get a bunch of threads debating whether folks should purchase one or the other.

I have many questions that i am sure have been answered. I hate to reask a question thats been asked before because of the rage it causes. I only ask this question cause i was on a topic the other day that had all the different off road parts on one page and their info after that. It was great but i didnt have time to read it now i cant find it.
I just like the 4door. I just want the rubicon. For me its all in or nothing. I have read about everything on the jeep website. I just didnt know if their was any little detail they didnt talk about. They said very little about their hill start.
Hill start will hold the Jeep in place when starting on a hill with a manual transmission. Some people have difficulty with this feature. The key to using it properly is knowing that how much it holds is directly related to how much pressure you apply to the brake prior to starting out.
"I've got two things in this world, my balls and my word and I don't break them for no one."
I was reading lastnight but was to tired to fully understand what i was reading. The article talked about pushing the shifter to the left or right to engage or disengage some system. That is not a fuction of the wrangler is it?
I think it was talking about a TC system. Again i can recall what i was reading.
If I remember correctly (may be confusing with Ram), there is a setting in the EVIC that allows you to turn it on/off. All you do is stop and it will hold the brake pressure for a few seconds after you release.
