That's what I pretty much did with mine, except I offered a deal with the dealer and went from a 12 to a 13. The 13 is night and day a good truck copmpared to the POS 12 I had. Sad their quality control is that off between rigs.
Just turned 15k on my 12 and it's been trouble free...except the cheap Jeep battery it came with that gave out at 10k miles and 13 months, on a 12 month warranty. No matter, I bought a good battery and would not want another OEM cheap battery even for free.

My 3.6 gets better every day I drive it. Better power and better mileage.

Mine ticks a slight amount, but not anything abnormal for an aluminum engine with plastic intake manifold. No problems otherwise. I have 28,000 miles and have used synthetic since the 1st oil change.

Its funny how the 3.8L gets the same gas mileage this pentajesus engine does. For all the hype how advanced it is I'm not all that impressed. Yea it might have a little bit more power but, this engine is a throw away engine at the end of its service life. Where as you can rebuild the 4.0L and 3.8L just saying. I drove a friends 13 JKU Rubi and it was quick no doubt but, unless you are running the snot out of it there's not a difference from the pre 12 JK's for just laid back driving.

To truly appreciate Obamacare, you should be not working, undocumented and given it for free.
