YES!! That is what they should have put in the jeeps as they did with ram trucks and new Durangos.
Earlier this year we bought a new truck for me (13 Ram 1500 sport) and new Jeep for fiancee (14 Limited with all options other than air suspension) If we could go up to a summit and have no air that is where we would be. However you can only go as high up as a limited to not have air suspension or nitrogen or whatever. Anyway getting back on topic. She came from a 11 Laredo with the v6. Wards best engine my a**. Had an oil leak in the upper manifold and dealer would not fix it under their 100k warranty. So we went out looking for a 13 to replace it earlier this year only to find out the 14s are ready for order. Kind of pissed me off since I just bought a new truck and here she is a month later getting a year newer vehicle and it was only just the beginning of the year
. Four oil changes later her Jeep has a little over 17000 miles on it already. From beginning the trans kind of had a little shudder at 20-30mph. It does it random and I believe she always has the eco button on. At first we read up on here its a learning trans and all that jazz. Nope almost at 20k miles and it still does it.
Something for the rest of you too look forward too. Other than that everything has been great other than the instrument cluster going out twice I think. We fixed that with disconnecting the battery though. Odd thing to me is the new rams with the 8 speeds are flawless. So why is the same powertrain in the jeeps having issues? Also anyone know why the Hemi in the Jeep is rated for less power than the trucks as well???
So much for a first post huh? Thanks guys
