Helo from South Florida
 
Hello. New to the forum. Looking at getting an unlimited Rubicon 6 speed. I had a 97 for a while and loved it. Just not sure about the v6 in the Wrangler. I know, old subject of debate. Still researching. Looking for all info I can get on the new engine. DAMNIT MAKE A DIESEL!!!
Test drove a 2 door Rubi 6 speed and an unlimited Islander auto. Liked the 6 speed though the clutch was crazy lite.

Just alright?? Are you satisfied with the engine performance? Do any towing or off road driving?

Welcome and I agree that they should put a diesel in the Wranglers. that'd be awesome.

It feels a little sluggish but hey its a jeep.. ts only slow to pick up speed.. As for towing I haven't towed.. Offroading its perfect. Mine is still stock.. But haven't had any problems yet offroading withit..

Towing wise, I have towed stuff bigger then my 07 Wrangler and it has no trouble pulling the load, it just cant handle the size of the object if you know what I mean.

This was towed from Missouri to Virginia, it was completely full. Couldnt get much top speed on the high way and since it weighed quite abit it was like the trailer was driving the jeep. Never the less it made it.....

Do you have the factory tow package? My 2010 has the factory tow package and supposedly trailer anti sway stuff and tranny cooler. Just wandering if you had much trailer swaying?

Trailer was swaying all over the place, I wouldnt recommend towing that much weight with a wrangler.
