Your Wrangler JK’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Jeep, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your Wrangler JK and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Jeep's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Wrangler JK might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Jeep Wrangler JK doesn’t drive like it used to.
