  1. New JL Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    I agree they were doing fine when they ordered the parts. My issue is no communication with the service department after 5 days wait to complete a 2-3 hour job. No telling how long my jeep will be tied up. I made it clear when turning it in I needed the work done before my surgery scheduled next...
  2. New JL Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    My jeep was dropped off on Monday Morning for this TSB as per the appointment made 2 weeks ago.. Parts were ordered three weeks before and everything was ready for installation. They said it might be a couple of days before they could do the work. Well, five days later no word on the Jeep and...

    I have a 2020 Sahara with the 2.0 e-torque engine. I am scheduled for the service on 9/15. I will advise if there were issues with the work done. I plan to check the work afterward checking torque of the bolts related to the work and overall workmanship. I want to double check everything the...

    Was there an entry for the software update mentioned in the service bulletin?
  5. Fire Extinguishers... what one to get?

    Simple and effective. I got two units for both my JL and Ram pickup. I think your method will work for the Ram in a similar fashion. I have good quality industrial velco so it should do the trick. It only needs to be removed once, either when I sell the vehicle or for it's intended purpose. No...
  6. Fire Extinguishers... what one to get?

    If you go to the media heading on the Element website they have some videos of the extinguisher putting out fires and the proper distance you should be from the fire for best effect. I am impressed enough so I ordered 2 Element 50 units for my Ram truck and JL. They would be a perfect fit for...
  7. Motor Trend confirms steering issue fix made to 2020 Jeep JL (gear valve tuning & pump calibration changes)

    Changing to a different power steering fluid might not be a good idea. There are some with no steering issues and others very frustrated with the steering. The common denominator in these two groups is the steering fluid. If the fluid change did reduce the poor steering response this is likely a...
  8. Synergy Jeep JL / JLU / JT Front Track Bar and Sector Shaft Brace

    Perhaps a bad term. I drilled and taped the sector support to lock the bushing in place with a set screw. I also used green Loctite designed to hold bearing in place. The work was marked with witness paint so I can readily see if it is holding in place. So far the strategy is working. One thing...
  9. Synergy Jeep JL / JLU / JT Front Track Bar and Sector Shaft Brace

    Yes, Since I pinned the bushing It has been no problem. No squeaks, no steering bind. very planted feeling. Also my steering returns to center after completing a turn. I am very satisfied with this setup along with the track bar front and rear. It is handling as I thought it should. I plan to...
  10. Synergy Jeep JL / JLU / JT Front Track Bar and Sector Shaft Brace

    My bronze bushing looked the same. I did press the bushing off and back on easily using my arbor press. My bushing had rotated about 10 degrees. I drilled and taped a set screw opposite of the grease zerk and reset the bushing aligned with the grease passage. I did use locktite green to help...
  11. Ebay Rubi Steel Bumper (not a knock-off) pretty legit!

    I had to align the two frame side plates bolted to the frame that give additional support to the backside of the bumper mounting plates. I found them to be slightly misaligned and this was causing difficulty in installation. I took the frame side plates off and straighten them on a vice until...
  12. Ebay Rubi Steel Bumper (not a knock-off) pretty legit!

    My bumper is a mopar bumper purchased from the dealer. Inside the bumper is a label from mopar stating the part number and serial number of the unit. It was in perfect condition, no scratches or dents. OEM lights and OEM wire harness that simply plugged in. I went with a Warn winch plate and...

    My bumper was purchased from the dealer. It has Mopar labeling on the inside along with serial numbers. It is as far I can tell an exact replacement for the OEM optioned bumpers.

    Get someone who knows about this stuff to help;)
  15. Ebay Rubi Steel Bumper (not a knock-off) pretty legit!

    The actual bumper weighs closer to 85 lbs. That additional weight is the winch plate and the extras included like the protection bar. I was able to lift the bumper in place but chose to get a friend to help control it while aligning the bolts to the frame. Your choice depending on how strong you...
  16. Ebay Rubi Steel Bumper (not a knock-off) pretty legit!

    I ended up buying the Mopar Bumper from my Jeep dealer. He was willing to beat the shipped prices from the internet Mopar dealers. As it turned out he had the bumper in stock and I picked it up the following day. No worries about shipping damage and the possibility it would need to be returned...
  17. Ebay Rubi Steel Bumper (not a knock-off) pretty legit!

    I appreciate the updated information. Crash worthiness and quality of finish are still concerns.
  18. Ebay Rubi Steel Bumper (not a knock-off) pretty legit!

    You are the first I have read on this thread to have installed both the Mopar and e-bay rubi bumper. Did you notice other differences such as the weight and paint finish? The factory bumper has to be tested for crash worthiness as well as pass specs for resistance to rust regarding the finish...
