Having said that, aside from off road capabilities and the pure fun of driving a Wrangler, there is not a better vehicle to tow behind a motor home on the planet!
Texas, do you have disconnects for battery when you tow it? If so, what brand? Also, do you use the Wrangler lights through motorhome when towing?

Any help is appreciated. Email if you would, rogerasay@yahoo.com

If understand correctly, no battery disconnect is necessary on the 2011 (actually, the 2009 models forward) model because the steering column does not lock (what a great change in design). On my 2007 Wrangler, I opened the hood and pulled the IOD fuse. That fuse would kill all the dash lights, radio (without loosing the station presets) and air conditioning. It would not kill the 12 volt plug for on the right side of the dash so a supplemental braking system could still be used with that outlet. I have never used the battery disconnect method. It keeps you from running a supplemental braking system and causes you to reset everything in the Jeep when the battery is reconnected. JMHO.

On all of my "toad" Wranglers, I have had a separate light socket installed in the taillight housings. Blue Ox makes a kit that includes sockets, bulbs, wiring and flat four plug. That way, all the power is off the RV. I know others have used the system that goes through the Jeep wiring but I just don't want to take a chance by introducing a foreign power source to the electrical system.

At 1200 miles , I had my 2010 JK steering box replaced. It was whining when I drove it on test drive. Salesman said it would probably quiet down after break-in period. I knew better and they told me to bring back if it got worse !

On the back brakes going first, Autozone guy told me that the fronts are metallic and rears are not.

Also be sure if you have the OEM air filter to change it often. I think like every 25k. The reason, on mine if its just a little dirty the trans will down shift alot!

I took mine in for that trans overheat recall thing. it was just so if the trans overheats the check engine like will come on. I was told. I'm betting the air filter and extra shifting will eventually cause overheating. So that might be why they added it to the check engine light. Makes me wonder why it wasn't already that way.

We love our JK we plan on getting another one soon and keep this one as well.

What problems? I'd like to see some of those. Problems will happen but mine is a '98 that gets WHEELED hard, It's not some brand new vehicle that keeps breaking down like the JK's.

Then why are you here?????? If you do not like the Wrangler buy a cute Rav-4 or a Minivan , and hangout with the soccer moms of America. The Wrangler is a awsome vehicle, it is easy to repair and does not have as many problems as other vehicles on the road today. WE as a Jeep community, are just more aware on what is going on with our Wranglers'. A lot of these postings are repeated many times, giving the false impression of constant issues. Plus the Wrangler is easy to work on your self , which saves money right there alone.


NOW , go outside to your Wrangler right now and apploigize for calling it POS,,,,,,,,

As a TJ owner, when the JKs came out, I also thought that they were a "lesser" Jeep. I still like both....the TJ and the JK.....but the JK is so much more out of the "middle ages" of automobiles. It's not really "lesser".....it's just "better". Sorry, JJ....but it is.

Front Passenger door seal at 5000 miles. (kept pulling out of track) Also had to have the traction bar tightened at the same time. Steering was popping when turning to the left.

Nothing so far with 11k on my 09. I'm new here and am already seeing the love that jeepjones dude has for the jk.

For some of you having issues with it popping out of gear, do you hear some rattling when you push in the clutch? My 07 had a recall on the throwout bearing, not sure if there was one on the newer models.

JeepJones is OK. He's obviously an old fart who is heavily set in his ways. He'll come around though.

Is there such a thing as a vehicle that does not require maintenance?
Maybe a skateboard. Umm nope even they need new wheels from time to time.

Keep posting your repairs and when. It might be helpful to others. And it kinda makes you feel better if you know its about typical for a water pump at 60k. (or not)

Oh and speaking of water pumps. I have a friend that has a $49,000 Tahoe. Its water pump went out at 50k miles.

I dont think any problems listed would be considered breaking down...maybe the driveshaft but thats a rarity. You are just a bitter old a$$that has probably been smoked offroad by a jk owner and has been biotching every since.
