Actually, the AB head was the PR campaign. If you had your head replaced before mid-August 13, it was just a delay tactic. Having said that, if you go back far enough in this thread, you'll see that...

You also have to make sure you shift out of 4H before you start turning. If you do it while the drivetrain is loaded, it will not immediately disengage to 2H (even if the lever is in the 2H position)...

I wouldn't say "not at all." Carpets, seat belts, and rear seats were options on the CJs. We've come a long way, but don't make excuses. Our jeeps are priced pretty high considering the quality and...

Pros/cons are mainly longevity/price. This is generic to almost all vehicles. I'm pretty sure Jeep recommends conventional oil.

I ran conventional for the first 30k or so miles. I switched to...

The manual yes, the auto not quite. I believe Chrysler bought the rights to manufacture the auto for the 2013 MY, so there are at least some differences in the programming after 2012.

I have logged all my fill-ups and miles for 46k miles since I bought my JKU Sport S with 2 miles on it (actual not computer). I ordered it with 3.73s and the 6-speed. I get roughly 18 combined and 22...

Engines like to be hot. The computer idles it up until it gets to the temperature it likes.

I think that the percentage of manual to auto here is much higher than the national average, because we are enthusiasts. I'm sure that the real number is somewhere down around 10% manual to auto in...

Nope. The front and rear axles and driveshafts are directly connected to the wheels all the time. When you throw the 4x4 lever, you are locking the front driveshaft to the rear inside the transfer...

I replaced my rear pads with Wagner ThermoQuiets. They were noisy as hell. Threw them in the trash after 1000 miles and put some NAPA premiums on. The NAPA ones were way better.

The 2016 owner's manual still says 2000 for the 2 door. This is most likely a mistake on the website. The transmission and engine are the same in the 2 door and 4 door. The towing limit on the 2 door...

It puts most manual cars I've driven (and I've driven a lot) to shame. It has the 6 speed. The clutch is super light and the gear lever almost sucks itself into the gears. The shifting is marvelous;...

Actually, I'm pretty sure reverse is synchronized in this transmission. I remember reading this when I bought it and I could shift into it without grinding when rolling.

In fact, I have the...

First poster is right. You were probably slipping the clutch when you pulled him out. That's most likely what you smelled. It's pretty easy to turn a clutch that should last 200,000 miles into a...
