In my case the Dealer's test drive was at fault. They drove such a short distance at such low speed! Yes, it was a Jeep Thing.
The dealer that change the steering gear was a delight.
I haven't been back to get them to show me the 70F Code. Should do that. We have about the same amount of play...

First--I'm in Canada. So Jeep Canada is a different company. When I escalated my problem to FCA Jeep Canada Customer Care things happened. It helped that I had talked here to @JeepCares
Second--The first dealer claims insurance won't allow it. We found another dealer that does service work...
I had issues with the selling dealer not confirming problems with the Wrangler. Turns out their service drive was only 6 minutes long, at low speed on smooth roads.
I wish they would allow me to ride along to show the tech when problems occur. Like highway speed for steering issues....
