Note, this video is mostly for newbee Wrangler Owners, or those that are looking for a their first used Wrangler. In this video I discuss a common problem with Jeep Wranglers, which is the Tick, Tick, Tick of an imminent Rocker Arm Failure. I provide audio clips of before and after the repair, so you can be better prepared when you're looking at a used Wrangler, or any vehicle which has the Penestar V6.

Nice video. Quick and to the point. A 2013 I looked at sounded exactly like this and I walked away. There were other unknowns on it as well. I figured if I was going to throw money at it might as well put it towards a lower mileage, cleaner vehicle. The 2016 I ended up purchasing is clean, quiet, and probably not much more in total out of pocket cost including requisite repairs on the 2013, using that as an example comparison.
