I am in the process of finding a Jeep Wrangler. I have a lot of choices local to me. I prefer a manual trans just for the fun of it. I have learned that the old faithfull I6 was replaced with a new V6 around 2007 I think. I have also learned that some dont like the the new engine? Is it that bad?

I have owned two Jeeps in the past. A 1977 Cherokee, and a 1979 CJ7. I think that may date me a little?:)

having never owned or driven the new jk i cant really comment on the v6. the I6 is an amazing engine that i believe to be the second best gas engine ever made. the first best being fords 300 I6. i have a love for straight six engines and if jeep didnt have the 4.0 i probably wouldnt own one. i dont see how the new v6 could stack up as a pure truck engine though.
