roberthleeii There is a thread in the tech section about a tsb for over hating. That said, you are probably fine.

Should I expect the temp to go up when driving steep hills or could there be an issue? Is there something I should be doing? Thanks for the help if anyone knows. I have found there are a lot of knowledgable people on this forum. That's why I am here.
Huh?

See the shifter to the left of the main gear shift? That's where you select 4LO.

I don't have an auto in mine, but the auto can be shifted manually. I believe you pop the stick over to the left and tapping forward downshifts and reverse upshifts.

and I love the HSA too even though I pretty much live in flat land
I'm with you. Been driving manuals since my first car at age 16, a 1986 Maxima. Then moved to a 96 Tacoma, then an 06 Tacoma, and now the '15 JKU. I feel like the clutch pedal is BY FAR easier to press/depress then any of the others, and haven't had any issue getting in/out of any gear.

I'm still getting used to the 3.73 gearing and 6 speed, but have the hang of it now. I like the way it shifts, and feels like a JEEP

I got my kit the day I picked up my Jeep, although my salesman didn't know anything about it. I just asked him to direct me towards the parts department so I could pick it up and he walked with me. "learn something new every day". I believed him.

Stands for Hill Start Assist. Both the 5 speed automatic and the 6 speed manual have it. It keeps the vehicle from rolling in the undesired direction when on steep inclines.

And to add to that. Jeep releases information on new models (now would be the '16) about 2 weeks before it becomes public knowledge to dealers. Jeep has always been incredibly tight lipped on special editions and will continue to be in the future.

If I were to guess, based on how many people are in club willys in the forum alone, the WILLYS model might be the next Freedom edition where we see it return every year.

2014 Jeep Willys Wheeler - Off Road Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited 3/4 down the page. Took a bit to get it.

When I called the MOPAR OWNER CONNECT I had to walk the lady through the website to show her and about 15 min later the answer was, once you register you "should" get it by them sending it to the dealer and you pick it up there. (guess it's cheaper to use the mopar delivery system).

I'm just wondering how many of you have heard of this? This brings up another question, is the Willys Wheeler a 2014 thing or has it been around for a while?

Sorry for being redundant then, but I'm glad I could help!

Exactly, I bet you can check the dealer's eBay page or someone who works there and find all the trail kits listed.

Also, if you check post one in the 2015 waiting room I listed the phone number for the incentive line so you can call and check yourself any time you'd like.

I'd also suggest you go back and sign up for any other licensed drivers in your home. You can use a coupon in the same household/name, otherwise no trading coupons. Also, make sure you include your email address and check your spam boxes. Several people have gotten their 'golden tickets' via email valued at $500-$1500. $500 is the most common denomination though. I think the $1500 may have been a current Chrysler customer.

Hope this helps!

I'm sure I was pushing it all the way to the floor at every stop, so it always took a lot more to get it going. I like the shifting now that I've gotten used to it, but I'm not going to pretend that it's not worse than my old man's 80s mazda b2000.
