    Well, at least we finally have confirmation that the 2 door traditional Wrangler will continue. I do remember there being doubts about continued production in this generation, plus, I don't believe that there have been any spy shots prior to today. If I'm wrong, please correct me.

    So many JL threads not even sure where to ask this question....?

    Anyway I'm swapping out my NSG370 6speed this weekend. Don't ask what they are charging for repair parts for these things. Lets just say it was cheaper for me to buy a 2015 used transmission with 24K miles than to try and buy the needed parts and have it rebuilt.
    The MB tranny has the first gear weak link (pops out of first) and is only going to get worst as the JK's get older. It was used in the TJ and the JK so my question is this. Will it continue forward in the JL? I would be OK if they had fixed the issue. I got 130K out of mine but it has been popping out of gear for the last 40,000 miles. Other than that I can't really say anything bad about it. Knowing I'm going to be buying another Wrangler in two years I think I would take the automatic over the 6 speed if its going to be the NSG370 again.

    Side note: After 130K the clutch looks like it has another 30-40K on it. The throughout bearing is what made me go ahead and pull and replace.

    I think I've seen some pics of a manual JL (mule).

    The reverse gear is placed closer to the 1st than it is to the 6th (as it is with the JK). Could that indicate a new manual transmission, or not necessarily?

    I don't know the answer to that but I am also curious. My JK has 155,000 miles on it with original clutch. Still going strong and has never had the JOG issue. My throwout bearing has been rattling away since about 50k though, I have heard thats common on the jk. Even though mine has been good, I am still hesitant to get another 6sp if nothing has changed...

    The JL was shown with a different gear map on the shift knob (reverse on opposite side), so there's a good chance of a new manual transmission, possibly to handle more torque since the current manual is barely rated above the V6 output.

    If it is a different manual I think it will also be a good choice due to the fact that if they kept the current unit they would still be paying royalties to Daimler.

    It's more than a royalty... Daimler still supplies the transmission straight out of Stuttgart.
