Clutch/Brake issue

The reason I say clutch/brake is cause I don't know what the issue really is. If I am going up a hill and come to a stop. When I let out on the clutch the jeep doesn't roll. It takes a second or two. You can turn the wheel a little bit and it will release quicker. But the problem here is that if you try and let out on the clutch like normal before the "brakes" release then it is hard to start off.

Has anyone else seen this. I firgured they might have added something to the clutch to help girls drive a manual. j/k girls.... I really don't like the 6 speed I had rather have my old 5 speed back.


Next Question..

How hard is it to remove the carpet. My old 94 wrangler was easy. But I do believe they have made it harder from the looks of it.

its called hill assist, its basically like a line lock in your brakes to hold you from rolling backwards on hills. it even works in reverse when backing up a hill. if you search for hill assist on here you should find the instructions on how to disable it.

Instructions for disabling it depend on the model year. On 2011s it under the personal settings in the EVIC. I don't know what it is on older models but its probably listed in your owners manual (RTFM).

I have the 6 speed, and at first it freaked me out, but once I read up on it and then went and played with it, I found it very use full. On mine the harder I press on it the longer it stays on, and the harder it holds on to the jeep.

Carpet is out, came out easy... I bet it doesn't go back in that easy. Anyone here buy a rear rubber mat that fits good? Waiting for weathertech to come out with theirs. I do have the front floor liners. By the way how you do fasten them? You know the carpet had the tab to keep them in place. I thought about drilling and placing a tab in the sheetmetal for them. Any other ideas?
