WOW, this is my first real question that I was hoping to get some sort of helpful response to since my wife and I are in the market for a JK, yet I receive a personal attack from someone whom I don't even know. It's unfortunate, because I really enjoy this site, and responses like this will probably deter me from spending much time here.
Thank you for your input. I appreciate the information.
Woah, captain butthurt, slow your roll. Maybe you haven't noticed, but a thicker skin is needed here than on some other sites. We put our big boy pants on before logging in around here, so simmer the fuck down or get the fuck out.
As far as the clutch goes, I'll second the potential for master/slave issue. You will want to check the brake fluid reservoir.Used to be on the driver side, toward the cab in the 3.8 models, so the could have moved it when they went to the 3.6. Low fluid could inidcate there's a leak and could explain why a Jeep with under 10K on the clock is back at a dealership for resale.
Take it out for a nice long test drive and when you get back, take a look underneath at the tranny to see if there's any fluid seepeage or an outright leak. It could take a few hundred miles to present an issue, so make sure you're keeping a constant watch on it. If there's any leakage, request new master/slave cylinders be installed before you take posession. Insist they retain the parts removed for your inspection on arrival.
I know much of this from firsthand experience in the past few months due to my install nightmare with a few local shops.
EDIT: Your easiest course of action is to pass on this Jeep and buy one that has no miles and no problems you can see off the bat.
