  1. LED Headlight Fail - Winter Driving

    So, the Mopar LEDs (5" or 7") that you mount to your bumper or A-pillar get hot enough to melt the plastic covers...that's interesting.
  2. LED Headlight Fail - Winter Driving

    That’s so true. They are the worst. LEDs are so damn cheap right now they need to make them standard. Well, I’ll be shopping around for driving lights that I can attach to the winch guard now that don’t freeze up. I’m sure the MOPAR version of their off-road lights which are LED are no...
  3. LED Headlight Fail - Winter Driving

    For $50K and increasing every year, they should be able to figure this out. I’ll say it doesn’t happen every time it snows, but given their marketing for the Wrangler as off-road and all-weather it would be nice if they added in LEDs with a heating element.
  4. LED Headlight Fail - Winter Driving

    Was up in Denver yesterday and headed back home in the evening during the snow storm. Had white out conditions most of the way out of Denver heading south to the Springs. Visibility was pretty crappy but made even worse by the headlights getting frozen over. Couldn’t stop to clean them either...
  5. “Service Axle Locker System” Light On

    Just an update on my fix. Got the new rear axle about a week ago...then the next day the service rear axle light come on again, but it only stays on for a few seconds. Thought it was a glitch, but it now randomly comes on especially when the Jeep is first driven during the day...goes off after...
  6. Yellowing Paint 2021 wrangler unlimited

    This is so bad as this issue was known back in 2018 when the JLs started rolling off the line. I can't believe it's still happening on 2021s. Seems to only happen on the plastic painted parts so there is an issue in that paint process or the plastic somehow bleeding into the paint. Anyway...
  7. “Service Axle Locker System” Light On

    I read the post about potting the sensor...will consider doing it. Understand they didn't make any changes to the axle they put in, just would be surprised the seals on the new axle sensor would fail so quick. Hopefully it's a glitch. I've got the mascara lifetime, so not really worried about...
  8. “Service Axle Locker System” Light On

    Okay...got the rear axle replaced last week on wed. Picked up with Jeep on Thursday. I saw the brand new axle they put in...got a picture of it. Service Axle Locker System light flashed on and off a few times on Saturday. WTF? Rear locker wasn't engaged or anything, just the light flashed...
  9. New JL Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    Well, I spoke too soon about the noise. There's no more notchiness or grabbing when I turn to the right, but after the Jeep warms up I can hear the noise. The noise only occurs when I'm parked and turning the wheel to the left. I suspect this is because all of the resistance/friction its...
  10. New JL Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    Quick update. Had my JLUR swapped to the new steering box about two weeks ago. After picking it up steering felt much better but it was notchy and grabbed a bit when turning to the right...also the steering pump was really loud and noticeable from inside. At the same time I told them about...
  11. “Service Axle Locker System” Light On

    I’d still get the JLUR but I’m biased as a current owner. What you are seeing here is a fraction of the owners and still we have owners here that have had zero issues with their Jeeps. I will say the steering is probably a fixed issue now that steel gear boxes are being installed on 2021s...
  12. Rear Axle Replace on Rubicon for Flashing Locker Light

    Jeeps in the shop getting the rear axle replaced. Guess the SA didn’t know the difference between a rear diff and a whole new rear axle...no problem, he’s taking care of things and I appreciate it. Also, tech re-installed steering column and some other things to address my notchy steering from...
  13. New JL Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    Well, I’m in Colorado now...just updated that. I travel, well used to travel pre-COVID, every month to California so I keep tabs on things out there. Just dropped my Jeep off at the dealer for the rear diff fix. They’re going to check on my steering as well...they did the TSB fox two weeks...
  14. New JL Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    First, stay safe out there in Irvine. Second, denial due to wheel spacers...cmon man. Did they explain their reasoning...wheels stick out more therefore causing increased stress on the axle...or not factory spec so unable to reproduce problem as reported by the TSB. The issue is they just...
  15. New JL Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    I have it too...worse when turning the wheel to the right. Dealer is going to look at on Wednesday and I’ll report back. I told the Jeep drives straight now, no dead spot or pulling, but the steering pump is loud and there’s a slight notchiness/grabbing of the wheel when I turn it. Said to...
  16. Rear Axle Replace on Rubicon for Flashing Locker Light

    Will do. Parts came in early and they’re taking care of it next week saying they’ll need the Jeep overnight. Plus they are going to look at my steering pump as I did the TSB to fix that and it’s much louder than it was before. All this is happening at 30,000 miles, go figure. Still under...
  17. Rear Axle Replace on Rubicon for Flashing Locker Light

    Did they replace the whole axle or just parts of the rear diff. My dealer is just doing the rear diff and I'm schedule for next week.
  18. Steering locked up when going around a curve

    True...hopefully the dealer works with you on this. I know some have had the steering box replaced by reporting stuck steering. My dealer has been pretty good so far. Replaced the box with no issues and now going to replace the rear diff because of service locker light. If you have a...
  19. Steering locked up when going around a curve

    Does your Jeep wander, have a dead spot, pull to the right or left. If so, then I’d present that first to the dealer for them to replace the box under the TSB. If you go in a say the steering gets stuck, they won’t replace the box and will just try to troubleshoot everything else. As long as...
  20. Steering locked up when going around a curve

    Jump on this thread and get your steering box replaced. I just had the dealer replace mine and will be watching for lock-ups this winter. I consistently had lock-ups last winter at speeds 45 and higher...just a slight one when going to the right...on the highway its manageable, but not safe if...
