New Wrangler- Few Questions

I finally got my wrangler!!

Just a few new wrangler owner questions though:

1. I have been driving my wrangler a lot in the past couple of weeks, racking up 750 miles. I know this is the break in period, but sometimes when I am driving at low speed, every once in a while, I hear click noise from the transmittion, when I step on the gas. This happens when I coast for a few hundred feet, and then hit the accelerator. Is this normal for the break in period or should I take it in?

2. What are some modifications I can do, which will not void the Chrysler warranty? Just a few examples other than exterior add-ons will be great..

Thanks so much, and I am excited to be part of your community.

Nice looking Jeep! The things that will void your warranty are tuning, MPG mod or performance chips, lifts, spacers, axle work...just about all the fun stuff. Check with your dealer if your going to install something and ask if it will void your warranty. Better yet, check with Chysler too.

Mods all depend on what you want to do with it. If you plan on taking it off road at all then by all means start with armor. Skid plates, rock rails (lose the plastic side steps), and evap relocating kit. Next would be bumpers.

According to just about everybody who owns a JK, Any mod will void your warranty. And that includes MUD in places on the undercarriage.

Nice Mountain. I don't know about autos but that's not normal for a 6spd. Before you do a chip or lift check with your dealer.

Are you sure that 'click' noise is coming from the transmission? I really like that Mango Tango!

I am assuming that it is an auto as you didn't mention shifting. Is it a single click or a repetitive click?

As for mods, basically anything that you want to do to it other than cosmetics will need to be done by chrysler in order to maintain your warranty.

Drive train back lash is the first thing that comes to mind. Mine's a standard but produces a click noise when I go from coasting to acceleration or if I come up on the clutch with the drive train slowed slightly as friction of the clutch begins at low RPMs and at the same time getting on the gas will cause a click as the drive train back lash is taken up.

Its an auto, but when I look back at it, I think its the thing that jk'n has. I also talked to a couple other jeep guys and they said the same thing. Thank for all the advice. I was also wondering, what is the best website for jeep wrangler aftermarket accessories- something with the lowest prices?
