3.6L Pentastar ?

Hello and thanks for allowing me membership here,

I'd like to buy a 2014 JK Rubicon when I return from deployment. I read a lot about the ticking problem and want to know if it has been fixed. I read about a few 2013's with the problem and it got me thinking no one really knows for sure, hopefully someone here does though.

Depending on when I actually get back I might be looking at left over 2014's or even early 2015's . Do you think they'll still use the same engine and tranny in 2015? Or are they going to push for the 8 speed transmission and Direct Injection, or change to the new 3.2L engine? I know the 14's just started rolling, but I figure someone here on this site might be able to guess a little better than this Sailor getting ready to deploy. The good news is I'll have www. access, and something else to look forward to when I get back.

Thank you all in advance for the replies to my first post....AD

I have a 13 jku rubicon 10a and the 3.6 is a beast in this thing. I have no ticking and its smooth as butter.

Re: 3.6L Pentastar ?

I believe most of the ticking issues came from mainly early 2012s. Mine is a 2012 and no issues with the 3.6 yet.
