    Canít speak on the jl 8 speed auto but the jl 6 speed is considerably better thank the jk 6 speed, the jl is a lot less notchy and is a much smoother and faster shift. Only had the jl for 1000 miles so we will see how it holds up but much easier to shift than the jk imo

Also the jl shifts WAY better in the cold, the jk always has a hard time with second gear in the cold and the jl does not seem to have that problem.

    Second gear is rough as fuck in the cold. Have mentioned it to the dealership but they just tell me it's -35 outside and that's just how it's gonna shift.

    Day or so had passed when I popped the clutch
    gave the tranny a spin and slid on into
    The Stinky Pinky Gulp N' Guzzle Big Rig Snooze-A-Stop
    There I was browsin' through the latest issue of "Throb"
    when I saw Bambi starin' at me from the back of a milk carton
    Well, my heart just dropped
    So, I decided to do what any good Christian would
    You can not imagine how difficult it is to hold a half gallon of moo juice
    and polish the one-eyed gopher when your doin' seventy-five
    in a lifted Wrangler
    I never thought missing children could be so sexy
    Did I say that out loud?

    Redline mt90 / mtl trans fluid fixed that problem in previous vehicles for me, donít have a jk so canít speak to it fixing for sure. Worth a try.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
