Ever find yourself in central Alberta, let me know. I got a 2012 arctic JKU with 6 speed. Anytime...

Great story and too bad it wasn't a 6 speed with 410s. I drove a 6 speed 3.73 2011 Sahara and then a 6 speed 3.73 2012 and the difference was noticeable but it was not as big as many people make out especially in normal driving. At max performance, I'm sure the differences are felt and the numbers in 0-60 times of independent testers seem to suggest that, but that isn't normal driving in a Wrangler, or at least not for me. Most of the critics of the 3.8 are really criticizing the gears and auto, and there is a good point to be made that depending on what transmission and gear ratio you are looking at, the engine alone is not the reason someone should trade in a perfectly good pre 12 JK.

Renaissance_Redneck Good story. I would let many forum members drive my Jeep too, if there were any reason for them to want to do so.

I won't drive the 3.6, because I'm afraid I would want one!!! I'm plenty satisfied with my 3.8 and automatic tranny. A re-gear, and perhaps a supercharger, might be in my future. But I see no compelling reason to switch to a Pentastar right now. Should Jeep have a diesel option, then THAT might make me "trade up"!!!

snikt I drove a 2011 Wrangler Sport about a year ago, it's been awhile for the comparison but it feels like my 3.6 pulls much better even at 2-3k RPM which is where I'm at for normal city driving.

Also driving up a 6% gradient at 10,000FT it was pulling just fine at 2K rpm, didn't feel like I had to make it downshift

I agree! A VVT engine has to be pushed for the performance.

There's actually even more to it, but I was trying to keep it somewhat condensed. When I got into town I called Steve and his wife answered. I explained who I was and then spoke to him. After we met he starting asking about people with my same last name. It turns out that his wife actually knows several of my relatives. I'm also pretty sure that I know her as well.

I still do that occasionally in my Jeep - this is my first auto (Jeep anyway).

This place does rock. I was blown away when a few of my fellow CT Jeepers offered to help me do my LCA's.

kik That's great. A plus with the windows. I would do the same but I don't have extra windows. Nice drive report. I'm sure the 12's are real nice. I wouldn't trade my 10 Rubi 6spd. I'm not bashing autos but I believe with a 3.8 it's nice to have a choice with a manual and gears help a lot with it. Any JK improvement I'm for no matter how much or little of a change. I still even like my 4.2 YJ. Never drove an auto JK or a 3.6. Anyone have keys.

Disraeli I'd let practically anyone in this forum drive my Jeep.

If there's one thing I've learned here, it's that you folks truly appreciate the machine.

Plus, this place is about as douche free as any forum I've ever seen.
