Interesting. My Wrangler would not activate the recirc for sure. I assume most would not.
Nifty point made. Do it if possible, I guess.

Got brake system, if so which and are you sure its working ok - as in does the smell occur without the braking system?

Any oil leaks or wet areas visible underneath or in engine compartment?

Hmmm... what else to check...
Transfer case is in neutral, trans in park, but I'm not sure how to unlock the steering wheel. The only way I know is to leave the key on, but would kill the battery. From all the other posts, I think my issue is road grime on the Jeep exhaust.

Steering wheel locks left us in 2007/2008 as required by NTSB. Some Jeep manuals are still stating to leave ignition "ON", and disconnect "NEG" battery cable. Wrong!
My '08 Wrangler did not have steering lock, my '12 wrangler does not as well as my '13 GC. Still tow the '12 and the '13 and have no problems. Place transfercase in "N". tranny in "P" (if an Automatic), ignition in "OFF", lock doors and off you go.

Miswine. We have towed two different jeeps with a 40' and 42' coach. The smell is more pronounced on the 42' tag coach and I think it's from tire wear and exhaust gases. Nothing wrong with the jeep. If you hose off the front of the Jeep after towing it disappears.
