2014 Sahara auto trans service?

Has anyone dropped the transmission pan on a 2014 JK Sahara? A fellow shipmate who plans on doing it and asked if i'd lend a hand. Naturally I couldn't resist, is there anything out of the ordinary to expect? Like dropping a cross member or the exhaust. If possible I'd like to hear from someone who actually did it. Thanks.

I haven't as my 2014 only has 14K miles. But when I do I plan on changing out the pan to one that has a drain plug. U should explore that option.

I'll let him know. I just want to know what obstacles there are before we start the job.

Be careful when putting new fluid in. The nag1 wa580 transmissions are very sensitive to over filling!

I thought about doing it myself with the wife's used v6 commander with 160 000km that has the same tranny. You need a temperature probe while the tranny is warm while filling it.

I have the special dipstick along with a temp probe. I did a tranny service on my GF's Liberty which doesn't have a dipstick. Then she took it to her BIL at a Jeep dealership to confirm it was full. Turns out I was dead nuts on.

then all means go for it...at least the wrangler has a dipstick. I had to use a 24" zip tie from home depot on the commander. Was so pissed when I saw the "dealer only service" cap.

Looks like you may need to look in some other forums but normally I find one where plenty of people have done it. Usually someone will post how much fluid they had to put back in . Makes it pretty easy to get where you need to be .

Doing a quick search myself I see 6.5 qts to fill for a pan drop using ATF4. Something I learned from the last gen automatic wrangler trans service , Use a MOPAR filter. May not matter on this trans but I don't intend on being the guy to find out that like the 42RLE other brand filters can effect the shifting. Usually you can buy the MOPAR filter on Ebay as cheap as anyplace

I've been searching not too many people have done it on a 2012 or later Wrangler. Thanks for the tip on the Mopar filter, i'll see to it that's the filter he gets. I wish there was a YouTube video showing someone doing the pan drop to a 2012 or later Wrangler, that'll be a plus.

I was googling for some info and came across a place that measured the amount of fluid that came out and they had 4qts. measuring is probably the safest but it seems like filling this thing right is critical and some what of a pain in the Kazoo to do..... :::MoparMax::: Late Model Mopar Transmission Tech, Part 1 - 8/2/2012
