Thanks for that comment. I forgot to ask that question with 4D and 2.3L MT.

Thought about the question 24 hours after the event lol.
No problem. He does admit the 2.7 is plenty more powerful feeling, but after he said he thought the fun factor was very high on the 2.3 with manual, I didn’t care.

I had a 2.3 Explorer with 300 HP recently, and I can attest that it’s got plenty of spunk. It’s not even close to the 3.5 SO or HO in any way, but it’s well beyond a lot of SUVs out there

Not heavy at all, and not feather light like in the Rubicon

This right here iswhat I've been worried about. I just got to drive a manual JL for the first time a few weeks ago and HATED the clutch. Like what were they thinking to make it so light and lifeless. I wish it had more feeling like the JK manual, I never had an issue finding the engagement point on those Jeeps and I actually liked how they drove.

I am hoping it has a decent feel to it and it doesnt feel numb to drive.
