    Wrangler 4dr Re: JkU -my first

    hmmm maybe because it is the 3.8 and not the 3.6 hehe. The 3.8 is a bit of a dog especially with the 4-speed. I don't hope the sales guy sold it to you as a 2012 3.6 when it is a 2011 3.8.

    But...

    Yebo, the face lift was in 2011. So all 2011s would have the new interior albeit 3.8 still.
    2012 saw the upgrade to 3.6 with the same interior. It's just that the gear lever looks like the 3.8's...

    Wrangler 4dr Re: JkU -my first

    Should be 5-speed (3.6/2012+)

    Edit: from the pics it looks like a 4-speed, so this must be the face lift 3.8 in 2011?

    Re: Gladiator coming to South Africa

    Rather long as apposed to big I'd say, which is its drawback i.t.o off-road use with standard wheels. Fitting 37's and up changes things big time though.
    That canopy setup does look good though!

    Re: Wrangler

    Skip the 3.8 and go for a 3.6 if your budget allows. You'll thank me later. Newer, more power and torque, better gearbox and better fuel consumption.
  27. Re: Can the same engine, deliver different consumption figures?

    Indeed. This is the biggest factor in this situation I'd say. I took a 1l/100km drop going from Kumho ATs to BF KO2s on my GC. Much heavier tire, more rugged, more rolling resistance, more fuel used.

    Spark plugs on the 3.6 are a schlepp the 1st time you do it but once you know how to get to them, it isn't hard at all. Honestly, it will take you 2 hours max.
