I'm back :D

Just thought I'd let everyone know I'll finally have some time to hang around here again and try to answer some questions.

Excellent, how fast are the unlimited Rubicons being built?

We were waiting on a new revision of the Rubi transfer case so they weren't being built for a little while. But as of about 2-3 weeks ago the new rev. came in so they were built pretty heavily 2 weeks ago but it is slowing back down to the normal Rubi ratios. Rubi ratios are probably 8-10% of the builds.

Do you know what the problem was with the transfer case and what revisions were made?

The harmonic balancer at the back of the T/F case was removed. All of the new revisions as of about a month ago are having this piece removed. Not sure why we decided to remove it but all the T/Fs now don't have them. So some of you early builds have this on there, must not have been enough of an issue to have them and they were taken out.

10% saying that is the normal percentage of Rubicons that are built on a daily basis. Of the 500-600 vehicles that get built a day, ~10% or less are Rubis.

Nice to have an insider. Is there supposed to be a light under the hood on the Sahara U? Mine was built 12/2006.

Any word on the paint issue? I have primer behind hinges, albeit a very faint issue on mine (Steel Blue).

Also, what is a blue magic marker dot on the passenger side hood latch? Does it mean something?

Powertrain revisions for 2008 model?

Welcome back JK Insider!

We are glad to have you back. I have a few questions about the future powertrain configurations. I know it is way early to be asking this, but I have to take a shot.

1.) Is there any talk about adding the 5-speed automatic to the Unlimited to help with the gearing and acceleration?

2.) Is there any talk about making the 3.8L a Flexfuel engine? We just got some E85 pumps by us.

3.) Is there any talk about adding the 4.0L V-6 or the 4.7L V-8 to the Unlimited?

Thanks for all the info you have provided so far. I look forward to seeing your response.

Bst Regs, JLH

Paint marker dots will be all over your car. They are just there to verify work has been done. EVERY SINGLE bolt, nut or anything that gets tightened will have some sort of paint marker on it so the inspection stations can verify torque and job completion.

I'll see what I can find out about the hood lights, that is body and another plant that deals with that stuff.

As far as engines go there is some exciting talk, I'll wait to post until I get more information.
