H what ?

We don't worry what the "OTHERS" are doing.

We set the benchmark. Period.

Setting the transmission to a specific gear, say 1st or 2nd or leaving it in drive and letting the transmission pick a gear. Also, if you put the transmission in 1st or 2nd does it lock up the torque converter?

Clean the zipper and use zipper lube

From what you are describing it sounds like the alternator is going bad.

Here is what I use, and the advice I give others here on the forum (actually copied from a previous post of mine), it's based on my own research and I would like to know if it's accurate information.

Here's why I use 10W-30 motor oil.

The Mopar gear oil part number used to be 4897622aa, but when you search that part number you'll see it has been superceded by part number 4761839AC which comes up as 10w-30 motor oil. Here's a link to search the Mopar part numbers.

Now, can we please get the Yellow Paint back?
We offered Yellow for the entire 2009 model year--there should still be some in stock. We are limited in the number of colors we can offer, but I would expect to see yellow again in the future.

Any reason for the sudden jerk forward without stepping on the gas when turning full lock while goin between 2-5 mph? Doesn't happen all the time...but it happened today. Jeep is a 2006 TJ sport with the 42RLE auto

Still there, now it's called "Stain Repel", and it's now standard on all '10 Wranglers.

BTW, you can also get the Sahara and Rubicon models with factory leather seating now.

Any chance we can get a add-on to the owners manual about the Jeep wave?

Im tired of driving to work and having 1 out of 5 Jeeps wave. Maybe just a little sheet would be fine.

And thanks for the Q&A!

Any chance of seeing an unlimited model like the LJ? I really liked the two door design with a longer wheel base.

Put your bacon where your mouth is!

Has there been any official fixes for rough shifting in the AX-15 with 100K+ miles? 10W-30 or what? I currently am running Redline MT-90 (around 90W) in it but even that is not helping.

With the information you are describing I am not able to give you any ideas. Sorry

Our research said that customers did not think it was worth the money.

I really need an answer to this one (:

I realize you recommend not modifying anything for any reason. CorporateSpeak(tm) understood (:

That said, although while it may not be recommended - if someone WERE to tap into the brake wire "hot side" so that their trailer brake controller would work, and if one found trying to access that wire under the steering wheel too painful and difficult (ask me how I know), where could one find the appropriate wire under the hood? What colour and where is it, and picture would help (: Rumour is that it can be tapped over there, rather than under the steering wheel.

Thanks a bunch!
