It is a rubicon. Sorry don't know what I said that. I wouldn't consider it if it wasn't a rubicon. Don't feel like trading down lol

The 5 speed actually has a deeper overdrive than the 6 speed. I just like the way the 6 speed shifts, it is much smoother. Plus the first gear is crazy low (which is a good thing), with 4.10s and 31s you won't even need it in 2wd. The low 1st gear is amazing offroad.

x2! The 241 is a big help, thats geared to 4:10. I run 35's and I can still take off in 2nd gear...

I see, I drove a few 5's when I was test driving them. I'll see about a six but I'm digging this one

That's the other thing I hate about this auto. Takes rediculous gearing to make the OD proper and if you don't you might as whelp had the 3 speed

They have there place but your right. Plus if your a gear head, you like to feel the vehicle and a auto separates you
