    VIDEO : JL JOURNAL - Q&A Tailgate Strength / Current Gear Setting / Auto Stop Start

    Thanks to the great questions that we've been getting on JLWRANGLER.com, WAYALIFE.com and of course, on our WAYALIFE YouTube Channel, Cindy and I decided to start a whole new segment that answers some of these questions and all on video. In this episode, we highlight the JL Wrangler tailgate and show just how much thicker and stronger it is compared to a JK tailgate. We also took measurements to show just how tall a Rubicon model JL is at its highest point and compare it to a standard 7' garage header. Another question we address is how to set the dash on JL equipped with an automatic and to show what gear you're in. And finally, we demonstrate just how easy it is to disable the auto start/stop system on a JL.

    We hope you find our JL Journal Q&A session helpful and if you have questions you'd like for us to answer, please let us know.



    JL JOURNAL is a WAYALIFE Production with a focus on the all new Jeep JL Wrangler. This YouTube video series will highlight every aspect of our Jeep JL Wrangler and of course, all the adventures that it takes us on. We hope that you'll follow us along on our journey.

    Only a 4" difference between Jet-Li and Moby. That's amazing!

    The start stop feature does take some getting use to. Have it on my WK2 Trailhawk and I disable it every time. Yes, every time you get in and out of the jeep it resets. Wish there was a way to disable it in the Uconnect settings but there isn’t.

    There is also some delay from the engine starting when I take my foot off of the brake to the gas. Not much but to me it is noticeable. Sometimes there is a little shutter when the engine stops and starts again on a quick stop and move.

    If the A/C is on start stop will still function. If the cabin temp gets too high above the temp setting the engine will kick on again obviously to get the compressor going again. If the heater is on start stop will still stay off until your foot is let off of the brake.

    I like the simplicity of my ‘07 JK but have been spoiled by the WK2 bells and whistles. Nice to know there won’t be too much of a learning curve when I finally get a JL.

    Is the owners manual 3/4 of an inch thick? Most of the pages are just for the Uconnect system.

    Love the videos. I’ll keep watching.

About us
“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.
