Default I'm back

It's been many years since I've stopped by. After endless transmission problems with my 2012s manual box i bailed. I recently picked up a 13 aev Rubicon with the auto. Hopefully this one fares better.

This is it as it was this weekend when I got it. Also, does this forum work with Tapatalk?

Wow, looks great!

I'm sorry but Tapatalk is not supported on MBworld. Thank you.

Thanks. I'm pretty stoked on it. I really struggled to find a base 2 door JL so I just went for this. It has options i never realized existed in the jk when i bought my last one. I'm not sure why i need heated seats or fancy climate control but I have it. I need to figure out the hard top one man removal method. The only garage I have it will fit in is a barn with no power so hoisting a roof off with a lift is sketchy at best in the dark.

Yeah I'll give myself a hernia before I pay 1000 bucks for a hoist that is only for one purpose.

Hi, I'm french and I have a problem with the manual gearbox of my 2011 Jeep Wrangler. What was your problem like yours please?

Well, after 2 transmissions with a third needing installed I sold it with 10k. Never could figure it out. It started as a rattle like a throw out bearing, after a few hundred miles it would be a knocking you could feel through the shifter, and not long after that it would knock so hard you could feel it through the floor boards.
