If you have a manual on your TJ the one on the JK is no worse. It's completely a personal preference. A more important decision is 2Dr vs 4Dr. Having owned 2 TJs the 4 Dr changes the whole experience particularly on the road.
Auto and manual are both good transmissions, and like spinlock said it's a matter of a personal preference. I have a '14 JKU 6-speed and like it very much, if I had an auto I would've liked it as much.
Originally I wanted a manual since the JKUR comes standard with the 4.10 axle ratios and it is an upgrade in addition to the premium you already pay for the automatic.
There are threads already on the manual -vs- automatic topic. Various opinions and what I gathered from them all is that it is mostly a user preference now.
I picked up a 2015 automatic JKUR, 4.10 axle ratios, Tank color, Black top & fenders, auto-start, 430N, Uconnect, temp control, saddle leather. The tan saddle leather interior was an unexpected pleasant surprise, I was expecting black interior since that is what I asked for.
I have only owned it a little over a month and I have been very happy with it....
Get the 2015 JKUR with 4.10 axle ratios then whatever your preference is for the rest.
My previous 2 wranglers were 2 doors, manual trans, and half doors. I'm now in my 30's with 2 kids and my previous wranglers wouldn't have really worked out for my current situation. I bought a 2016 4 door, auto trans, with full doors. Our whole family loves it and we take it everywhere, the wife (who couldn't learn how to drive standard in my old jeep) loves to drive it as well when I let her every so often. My advice would be the same but it depends on your situation.
So, I recently bought a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Sport Unlimited with a 3.21 gear ratio (should have done more research). The Jeep came stock with 29's with a 16inch rim. I want to go with 33's on the stock rim, but have read mixed opinions about the tire size on the 3.21 gear ratio. Has anyone been...
I am super lost on lift kits and what I am looking for. I only plan on wheeling maybe 3 - 5 times a year if that, and when I do go it will be easy trails no giant rocks or anything. I did just buy 35x12.50R17 Dik Cepeks and I am going to use my black willys 17" rims.
Just a thought, it would be cool to learn in depth about your money saving, cool mods.
So share your tips, tricks, mods, cheap ideas, use links, pics and descriptions to help us out so we too can use your good ideas.
What better way to give back to the forum.
Interested to see what you guys got in the trunk. I want to add more stuff but mine is already crowded for a 2 door even without the freedom top bag and fire extinguisher on the roll bar!
