has anyone else had problems with the six speed throwing itself out of first when they go to start off??? mine here lately when the trans gets up to operating temp when i put it in first it feels like it fully engages but when you add throttle and let out the clutch it violently throws it self out of first into neutral and sounds like the tranny is about to fall out from under the jeep. i have a 4door rubi if that makes any difference to the 2 door

Mine doesn't do it - at least not yet - but I've heard many others report the problem. I'm sure they'll chime in soon enough. Stealership may be able to help...

16,000 miles on mine and no problems whatsoever.

I remember reading about someone else on here complaining about the same, though. You may want to run a search.

This has happened to me a handfull of times now too. Sometimes it feels like it'll take your hand off. I remember reading some thing about it, but can't remember what...
Agreed! I've never been holding it tight when it happens but feel like if i was my wrist would snap

Jeep has done it about 5 times to date. Always when the engine/tranny is cold, and usually because I limp shift it into first.

The last couple of times it whacked me in the palm, and it was unpleasant.

I have 12k on my 08 Ruby 4dr and never happened. The threads generally led back to a body lift kit, and how it changes the clearance in the shifter area.

12k on my '07 Rubicon. What I have experienced is going into fourth gear, limp wristed it some I guess and it has jumped out. Maybe three-four times but always when it's cold. Now I just make sure I've got it in there good.

Mine does it very rarely when its cold and when I half ass put it in gear and only seems to be when I just shift and release the clutch... it has never came out when it was fully engaged. Hopes this helps.

Pull the outer shifter boot up and take a look at the inner boot, they have been known to pop out of place, thus not allowing full engagement.
