Thank you for your reply! I guess that nothing is perfect in this world. I will have to say that everything else on these new Wranglers are awesome!
I had some whine from my 2003 4.0, but there is definitely more with the 3.6 and 5 speed. I road tested about 6 of them before buying mine and they all had it. I'm thinking that it originates from the engine rather than the transmission. It may have something to do with the roller cams along with internal engine chains, being used on the valve Trane.
It will be interesting to see what the life expectancy of the 3.6 is verses the old reliable 4.0.
