Keep in mind you have the 3.7L V6. My truck has the 5.7L Hemi stuffed into it. Totally different animal with regards to accessing the O2 sensors.

Yep, mine are pretty easy on my 5.7 too, but neither one of us have stock exhaust systems. When they did my headers they moved them so they're easy to get to. A stock Hemi is a huge PITA, as I would expect all the WK's would be. Not absolutely sure though, since I've never seen any other than the 5.7's. On the others, I just know what people have said on these forums.

Not really, the exhaust is setup very very similar. Only real difference is that the 5.7 pipes are 1/4 inch larger

Re: What is easist way to access O2 sensor connectors?

Well, Firestone looked at it and said "No way". They don't want to attempt dropping the exhaust for fear of breaking bolts or other things.

I called my Jeep dealer back to get another quote for just replacing the one bad O2 sensor. I'm not sure if the 2hrs labor would be the same for one vs all four. Haven't heard back from them yet.

Guess you missed the part where I said the only difference in mid pipes is the size on the hemi is 1/4" larger. O2 sensors are even in the same places

But I'm talking stock for stock bro. only difference in the 3.7/5.7 mid pipes is the size being a quarter inch larger on the hemi. even the cats and o2's are in the same spots. at one point I was looking into a corsa catback for the 5.7 because it can bolt up on the 3.7. seen it done on a 4.7 which has the exact same exhaust

Re: What is easist way to access O2 sensor connectors?

When I looked I had kinda convinced myself that I could get the sensors out and back in on my '07, but NWIH I was going to be able to get at the connectors for the front sensors..

Re: What is easist way to access O2 sensor connectors?

Jeep dealer got back to me with a quote to just replace Bank 2, sensor 1. Total will be $180 (85 for sensor, 95 for 1hr labor). I have an appointment next week to get it done.

Re: What is easist way to access O2 sensor connectors?

It's fixed!

Jeep dealer just replaced the one bad O2 sensor. Cost was exactly as they quoted, $85 for sensor and 1hr labor at $95. They must have special tools because I could see no evidence of the mid-pipes being removed. All bolts and nuts were untouched. I did notice they dug the connector for the O2 out from behind the trans dipstick tube where it was hidden and inaccessible to me. Truck is running great again!
