Why don't you try a different dealership with a better story

x2....dealerships are night and day about which one will cover wheeled/modded Jeeps, only polished Barbie Jeeps, or none of the above. Look around, even if it means going a long way, like to Baltimore or Montgomery Co. You just have a crappy Jeep dealer, and I'd let people know it, too

Why should I use a different story? A Jeep wrangler that is "Trail rated" should not have the clutch slipping when the terrain is different. Especially, when the traction control was disabled.

It BOGGED down in what I am saying in 1st 4x4 HIGH range. Driver should have went to low range BEFORE he went wot against the friction of sand and 4x4. This is like basic off road stuff.

No offense just the way I see it. It was BOGGING down in first high. then go to 5th low and work your way down to first again and if that don't work you are really ******. better regear the heep.
I was not bogging down, I was driving and hit soft sand and I started to loose power! Then I stopped and put it in 4wd low, and had no trouble fiind traction. After, that I got scared and was costing on other people's tracks with no soft sand. I started loosing power again and started down shifting.

I have driven on the sand before "Moble support unit" as we were called by our commander. My clutch was slipping, this is a 2013 jeep wrangler and it's not suppose to do that.

I don't ride my clutch, I didn't pop my clutch because I didn't want to spin my wheels and dig myself in a deeper hole.

i know how to dig myself out of a sand trap, by driving back and forth to slowly flatten any sort of sand build up around my tires.

If you simply told the dealership what happened and they immediately told you to **** off, you should talk to the management. If you took it down there and had them actually look at it and they still rejected it, time for a new dealership.

You probably need to take it somewhere else regardless, but there's no reason why any dealership shouldn't make the effort to at least look and properly diagnose your still brand-new vehicle.

Thank you, they didn't even bother to do a proper diagnostic. All they did was look at the pieces of clutch on the bell housing and called mopar and said that I don't know how to drive a clutch.

Do you think that it would be worth to tow it to another dealer?

Sounds like traction control ****ed you up on the sand. How long did you rev the engine before the clutch turned in to smoke?

I know, thing like abs, esp, and the anti-spin differentials, traction control, etc cause problem in the sand. I did this a lot in my TJ, which had no of the above lol. The second I lost power I kick it into 4wd low, because I had no idea what could of been causing the power loss, but it continued to happen as I was cruising in compacted sand.

The point of this thread was to find other people that have had their clutch fail and therefore, cause it to slip.

I never got bogged down

my vehicle died on me...

I think they should cover it... maybe try another dealer?

I call shenanigans on the people saying it's your fault. ...I had trouble in my TJ where I couldn't get back in 4 low in soft sand wheeling & even some little hill/ledges & I moderately cooked my clutch on my way out of the trail.... the next day it was fine. ..I'm sure that to trip shortened the life a bit though.

In my buddy's 07 he had his clutch slip real bad in soft sand on an incline. ..but his was fine after

I found this link (and many other great links)

http://www.jpmagazine.com/techarticl...ontrol_system/

By the way, thanks for the great links to information. I alway try go through them before I ask something. It's a great organization of information for somebody that does a lot a research before they buy an aftermarket part and for someone that has a lot to learn about jeeps and off roading, like myself.

You should use a different story because Jeep gives people a difficult time when they are trying to get something warrantied and have taken it off-road. That "trail rated" badge mine as well be tossed into the garbage because Jeep doesn't stand behind it on a warranty claim. And yes it's a 12m/12k mile warranty but Jeep doesn't have to repair it under warranty if the vehicle was being off-roaded at the time of the issue and "abused".
