    Two different 8 speed transmission options on the 2020 JL?

    Was looking at the build configurator and they show two 8 speed transmissions. One is a $2000 option which i'm pretty sure is the same on on the 2018/19 models and a $2750 TorqueFlite one. Any idea what these are?

    JUst figured it out, one of them automatically changes your engine to the Diesel. I thought it would use the same transmission, guess not...

    I'm on the fence, I love where my JK is at, but everytime some new thing wants to creep up on me, it drives me insane. Last Year around this same time I changed the actuator on the AC blender door, yesterday it started acting up and little things like that seriously makes me think about changing to a new vehicle.

    These JLs and the JKs don't have the same stupid design air mix doors that the WJ Grand Cherokees had, do they? I would think Jeep learned from that and fixed it, or at least tried to do it differently.

    I wouldn't know, I just know it's a PITA to get in where the actuator is at to replace it.

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.
