Re: Choice between Trailhawk and Hemi Jeep GC

Ok my apologies, I assumed since the Nag1 5 speed was used in my MY2012 SRT and had been use. In previous model 5.7 models it was still used for the 2011-2013 5.7...

So my experiences are not a direct match. I still wouldn't worry about the higher mileage though, but unfortunately I can't speak to it as directly as I thought I could, well unless you go with an SRT...

Re: Choice between Trailhawk and Hemi Jeep GC

I'm at 45K miles without a hitch...I have full confidence in the JGC with the Hemi. I did have some TSBs applied to the tranny, but they always resulted in improvements. The last one gave a very minor hit in fuel economy, but it increased overall vehicle performance at the same time.

Re: Choice between Trailhawk and Hemi Jeep GC

The best car buying advice I ever got was to, "go with the cubes." The Hemi won't let you down. The 5.7 is tested and true. Take the cubes!
