I'm ordering a 2 door JL Rubi 6 spd in the next week or 2 and would like some input. Are you manual guys happy with the short throw shifter and lower first and reverse gears? Can you even tell they're lower? The dealership is claiming I can get this Jeep by the end of May, is that possible? It seems awfully quick especially since there's no 2 door Wranglers on the lot yet. Thanks

Just a thought, give the auto a test drive. Ive been a manual person my whole life and if/when I buy a JL Im getting the automatic.

Personally, I would get the auto just for the 8 speed.

^^^This. Wayoflife mentioned that he doesnt think hell need to regear for 37s, with the 8 speed automatic.

Well its the same as a JK with the manual then. With 37s youre gonna want more than 3.73s.

My JK Willy's is my first jeep auto in a while I trade in my 05 Rubi 6 spd in on it in 2015 and have regretted it since. I only plan on running 35's on the JL 2 door so the 4:10's will be fine. Just curious if the lower 1st gear and reverse will be noticeable. I hope it is. Not sure I'm enthused about the short throw shifter. But if it's tighter and more precise I'm sure I'll get used to it. Can't wait to test it out on my PA trails.
