    2 Door JL Rubi advice please

    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. I’ve been a manual person my whole life and if/when I buy a JL I’m getting the automatic.

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

    ^^^This. Wayoflife mentioned that he doesn’t think he’ll need to regear for 37’s, with the 8 speed automatic.

    Who says he’d have to regear with the manual?

    He wouldn’t have to, but probably he’d want to.

    Well it’s the same as a JK with the manual then. With 37’s you’re gonna want more than 3.73’s.

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.
