    TJ General Discussion Forum
    Howdy, My son has a 2006 Wrangler Rubicon. We have been taking it to a local dealer for repairs, he went to Texas A&M Maritime Academy in Galveston, and that environment is pretty rough on vehicles, alas, we are finding that many parts have been discontinued. He is now working on a tug down...
  3. Transmission ECU problem?

    TJ Tech Forum
    So about 4 months ago, my jeep started shifting very hard from first to second. It would only do it the first or second time it shifts and after that it would go away. At the time i had read that in some 2006 tjs, the ecu would cause the transmission to do that. With learning this, I reset my...

    TJ Tech Forum
    EDIT/PROJECT COMPLETE EDIT 1/25/2019: I'd strongly recommend going with the Advance Adapters retro-fit bell housing over the HESCO CPS adapter. I had misfire issues I couldn't quite solve with the HESCO adapter, put the retro-fit bell housing in, and the Jeep has run flawlessly with the new...
