    Any one have one of the newer Wranglers with the 3.8 V6? How do you like the vehicle and engine? How is the mileage?

    Thank you,

    I believe thats the same motor as in the Liberty, and those have been around for a while without any major issues. I test drive a new JK a while ago just for shits and giggles, and it doesnt have the torque that the 4.0 has and doesnt seem to have the low end power either. Overall I was not impressed by the JK at all. I will keep my 4.0 TJ thank you very much.

    LOL What a fun time. I remember seeing your jeep, as I was looking at jerry can setups :) Also think I saw that jeep yesterday heading from danvers to peabody (if still running the bikini top with soft doors), and the same jeep parked off of 62 near the aggi....

    I babied my JK for first few weeks, then said F it time to have fun. Got some new rubi wheels and tires, suspension and stripped all carpet out of the interior. Yeah people think im nuts, but hey, my Jeep ill enjoy it how I please :). JK's are quite veraitile on road, off road, and gun range :D Hell I just finally just got the doors back on a couple weks ago

    Bought my wife a 08 Sahara with the 6speed manual and 3.23 gears. After 15000km not one issue other than I haven had time to remove the hardtop to remove the softop from the back. Overall I must say Jeep did thier homework on this one. Did I mention the 20 miles/gal average on the truck. In my cj 7 I'm lucky to get 7miles/gal.
