Don't have the TSB number handy, but my dealer knew about the issue when I mentioned it popping out of 2nd and 4th and offered to do it on the spot.

That they bent one of the parts and had to overnight another didn't help, but it's been fine if not great ever since.

The tech did say that the "issue" was present on manuals since 2008.

Hope this helps.

Peace!

Hi guys. I had the same problem, when I was in first gear every so often it would pop out of gear. I brought it to the dealer told them the problem, they took it for a test drive and could not recreate the problem. So they asked me to show them the problem (probably wanted to see how I drive) at first I could not recreate the problem. I drove as I always drive then I was asked by the employee of the dealer(not sure that he is a mechanic) to drive more aggressively and even at that it would not pop out. I was told that if they did not see the problem they could do nothing about it. When I told the dealer's service manager that I saw a TSB on the net, at this point they took me more seriously. They looked for a TSB on their system. Once confirmed they did the work, which consisted of replacing first gear and replacing the SYNCHRO MESH. Since then it no longer pops out of first, so far.

I know, that's why I said it came out in 2010.

yep, 11K miles on my 2010, works perfect now and used synthetic fluid in the tranny too...u should have em look at your clutch too since it's been a few years, though miles are low...

Theres a few other TSBs for computer reflashes etc, too for our 2010's btw...have em search.. Had mine done in two days, its pretty straightfoward partial tranny rebuild...

Good for you for taking action and not just hoping it will fix itself....for the money people pay for these Wranglers and then when a problem arises and then take it to the dealer and some get looked at if they had 3 heads is totally unacceptable.

Best of everything with your new ride.

Now truck got stuck in PA and dealer is telling me clutch is burnt and hanging out it cost me around 1000 dollars not under warranty. I asked if my issues can cause this and any TSB bulletins on this they say no and they have no answers why clutch burnt so fast but it's a maintenance about to loose my mind. This jeep is a piece of ****. Any advise please jeep is on there for 5 days. First they say it was the hydro box that controls fluid and brakes and had to order part now they say the guy was wrong and they see clutch prices hanging.

I had this problem with my 07 Rubicon. Printed out the TSB and took it to my dealer. They couldnt get it to replicate but rebuilt it anyway. Replaced 1st gear and synchros. My extended warranty company paid for it. I was lucky.

Our situations sound somewhat similar, my '10 also had a few additional problems, I bought it used and had only 10k left on the warranty. I was able to trade it in and still make out on top. I'm paying less money for my newer Jeep because I durance went down for the new one. I got almost an exact match, but it's a 12 not a 10. I've had much more luck with the new one. If you could fathom parting ways with your jeep, it's an option. Mine had 4 miles on it when I bought it. I've got nothing to worry about for some time to come.
