    I could have sworn that I updated this thread... I guess that I didn't...

    I ended up getting the transmission replaced when I got it down to South Carolina. Rick Hendrick of Charleston, SC was an absolute nightmare to work with. They fixed the problem, but their customer service was, well, shit. The Jeep was at the dealership for 21 days and I had to fight them to get a loaner vehicle. Getting a hold of them for updates was an exercise of futility, usually ended in me driving 20 minutes to the dealer just to get an update. I found out that they decided that they didn't feel the need to replace the clutch on the Jeep that had been into service six times, each time causing issues that I'm sure led to excess wear on the clutch. So they put into a new transmission with my old clutch. Classy.

    When I got the Jeep back, FINALLY, I got home and decided to check their work real quick, see if anything looked wonky. Sure enough, one of the bell housing bolts was 3/4 of the way unthreaded. Three others weren't tight. I tightened those up, sent a... worded... email to my service advisor and that was that. Haven't had any issues with the transmission since, thank god.

    What a nightmare.

    That does sound like a nightmare. It sucks that these dealerships are horrible at just fixing the problem and have terrible customer service.

    anyone else waiting (literally months) for a new manual transmission? Mine has been out of service since May (18) and the delivery date keeps getting pushed into "early" September..

    They are replacing it under the power train .. but still sucks....
