Whoa, Shifter Shake, what is this...

So I test drove 2018 JK manual and was shocked to see the stick swirling around like that. Does anyone know if the same thing occurs with the new 2D JL Sport? I may order a JL but dealers don't have manual ones on the lot to test. There's a YT video of a JL Rubicon with very little shake apparently, but would the Sport be the same as that?

I would think in the JL line up they will all be the same on how the stick "feels". Same with the JK it wont matter if a Rubicon or a sport on how the stick "feels". The only thing that would change, shift points would be gear ratio. The Rubicons all have 4.1 gears in the JL and ALL other is 3.56 no matter what it is. In the JK's. The rubicons are 4.1 but the autos are 3.73 with option to 4.1. all the other JKs are 3.21 base and 3.73 is option. In a JK that 3.21 is really a car ratio for gears. you REALLY need 3.73 min.

the 2 door JL base dont even have a d44 rear any more its now a new gen 35?. no one seems to know much about this rear end. i would think its like a 10 bolt chev in some ways.

The shifter stick does that to a certain degree on every single longitudinal engine manual transmission vehicle. The less vibration from the engine that gets transmitted to the chassis, the more shake.
