Good info, thanks. When I first noticed it I stalled it, and I just don't stall out. Noticed it was hard to get it rolling and that's when it stalled. Did it 2xs Saturday. Pretty cool to know about the anti-stall...wonder how that works. Kind of funny we are talking about anti-stall and what brought all this about was because I stalled it

On the 05, it has new rubber on the left and almost new on the right...after the rights go out I plan on doing a lift and going with a bigger tire. I think 30's are on it now. Man, the tires on the Rubicon would look sweet on it.

Congratulations again.
If you have a menu button on your steering, cycle through the various categories (displays under the speedometer where the compass/temp gauge is, eventually vehicle assist will display, from there you can turn it off (i like mine on).

WOW another nice feature on the '11's. Anything prior you have to perform a steering wheel dance to turn it off.

Don't mash the brake pedal while on a hill. Press it just enough to hold you. The HSA will hold in proportion to the applied brake pressure.

Wow, nice Jeeps. I have the same 2010 Rubicon but the auto (wife can't drive stick), and wish I would have kept my 03.

Bought the wife her dream car last year, 07 Vovlo XC90, AWD, V8. She loved it right up until I let her drive the Rubicon. Volvo hasn't lef the garage much since....

I'm tellin you, don't even worry. It grows on them quickly!


My fiance' first reaction to when I told her I was buying a Wrangler...
Then I took her out during that 2-3 foot snowstorm a month or two back... After driving around with no issues and being the only person on our block able to move their car that day, I even heard her say "I'm so glad you have a Jeep"


Now everytime we go on long drives she is begging me to drive it. She even says "What if there was an emergency, I should know how to drive it". She even wants to go to the Jeep Jamboree in the Pine Barrons this summer. Once you get behind the wheel of a Wrangler, you can't say you don't like the vehical. Gender doesn't matter.

Good question. The Rubicon is solid muscle on the outside and nice on the inside, smooth ride off road and a good DD. The TJ is just fun. More fun than the Rubicon, great weekend vehicle and very capable off road. It has more get up and go. They are totally different vehicles.
