It's HSA (Hill Start Assist) and it will hold the brake for 2 seconds or until you start moving UPHILL (either forward or reverse) if you're stopped on a 7% (I think) incline or more.

Useful sometimes, but a PITA other times.

All years, you can start in gear when in 4lo without using the clutch.

You can deprogram the TPMS with either Superchips or AEV ProCal--but the ProCal does no tuning.

Don't know what year brake/hill assist came out. You just need to show your wife how to use the emergency brake when starting on a hill with a stick.
thanks dude! I tried to tell her to use the ebrake, but she said that was too much to think about!

Arise from the dead, my dear thread!

Scratch that above statement. ALL Rubicons, all years, all configs come stock with 4.10's.

The "lifetime" part of the warranty is non-transferable. The 3/36 part does transfer.

It is in writing in the Warranty manual in the glove box of all models that were sold with the limited lifetime powertrain warranty.

True, I bought my 08 Rubicon used and couldn't transfer the lifetime powertrain warranty. It does state it on the warranty papers. You can go to jeeps website, put in your vehicle and look at what warranties and service contracts are on your vehicle.

Nothing too major.

07-08 Softops on all models had plastic headers that would warp in high heat climates. They allowed water to leak in and alot of wind noise. 09 went to a metal header. Plastic headers can easily be replaced with metal, so you can use the platic header story as a way to get the seller to drop the price.

2010 they introduced the Sunrider Softop as a standard feature on all models sold with softop option.

Vinyl seat coverings were an available option in 07.

I believe the center consoles are different...at least the Xs were.

7% Autos

5% Manuals or at 3% pump brake once to activate.

I believe it was introduced on the late 09s
