Questions About 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK’s Transmission

  • How much can I tow in a Jeep Wrangler JK? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Wrangler JK towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system.

The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
