Check the vacuum lines I klnow mine did the same thing. Come to find out that the vacuum lines were all messed up. There is a little black box lines going in and out I was told by dealer that this is an important piece, but I was told by other mechanics there is a mod to do that will remove a lot of the mess.

Hey everyone. I have a brand new 2006 Wrangler X that has the same issue. I've read here about everyone's slow start but only on older models. She's still under warranty so I told the dealer and they said that it sounds normal. I'm thinking that maybe I'm just used to my older car and that this is a "Jeep thing". It only happens in the morning, cold or warm, when I start it up for the first time of the day. Still sound pretty normal?

Also, I was wondering if anybody has ever seen a tire cover with a cross between the "Jolly Roger" and the scruffy faced, bandana wearing smiley face guy? I'd like the skull and cross-bones to have a scruffy face and the bandana. Anyone see that before? If not, I'm having it made this weekend.

Happy Jeeping,
Matt
