    How in the world are you guys doing this in 3-6 hours? Its taking me longer than that to get these stupid wiring harness connectors loose! Everyone is different and in an impossible location to get leverage on. Already broke on tab! @#%#$%$%#$^$%^

    Is there some freaking magical chart showing me all the #$^$^$ different mopar connectors and the trick to get the locking tab to release?

    Push in first. Then wiggle back with clip released. You learn after you break a few.

    Thanks!

    That did help. I only have the 2 wiring plugs on the passenger side under the bracket and large harness left. I just can't get my hand under there to pull the plugs. I noticed on another video where he removed the fuel rails. Did you or anyone else have to do that?

    The fuel rails stay attached to the lower intake and come out as a unit. Refer to the write up and pics at the beginning of this thread often. Take your time, don't take shortcuts, just follow the write up and you'll do great!

    Yes, the electrical connectors are the biggest pain of the job. I found it very odd that my driver side and passenger side injector connectors were different clips/connectors. I should of took a picture, it was very strange.

    Some people on youtube were taking the fuel rail off the air intake. Per the Mopar manual you just disconnect the electrical connections and leave the rail on the intake.

    This is the most helpful DIY I've seen in a long time- thanks so much! I'm unfortunately looking to tackle this on my 13 JKUR with 52k next week. Has anybody considered an oil pressure switch relocation instead of reinstalling it under the manifold? Say a 6" section of line to the firewall? Its pretty common in the miata world, but haven't heard any mention with the 3.6. Miatacage even sells a kit for $45. Am I a fool to do the relocation? Happy Jeepin!

    later year oil filter housing

    Really thorough writeup. Thank you. I have a 2013 JK. The sensor is bad and the relief valve is broken. It is possible/recommended to use a 2014 filter housing in a 2013? I've read the 2014 is an improved design. The filters are different which will cause confusion for eternity, but that is a hassle I'll live with if the part is better.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
