1984 Jeep J20 Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Jeep? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Jeep J20? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your J20 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your J20 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my J20's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Jeep J20’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Jeep. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
