Oh yea, I've had the jeep two days.
One thing I love about manuals is each one is a little different. I like to just use the clutch no gas to learn the clutch tension and eng. drop. Also jeeps being a truck the tranny setup is different than cArs as far as gearing and slip.

DeepSouthJeeper No problem, I'm sure it'll get better in time. If not, maybe just get a stiffer pedal. And if you like it now, just wait till the top and doors are off

DeepSouthJeeper You're talking about it "bucking" on take off right? Happened to me when I first started driving it, but it was my first ride AND first time to drive stick shift. Doesn't happen anymore. Might have something to do with the soft gas pedal?
