This complaint sounds like it’s from an employee or contractor that was sent to reweld frames.

I thought the frames were made by hyundai mobis in Toledo? Maybe the frames are made by Tower and then sent to Toledo and hyundai mobis assembles the chassis module for Jeep.

Does anyone know if hyundai mobis and kuku are building the JL as they did for JK?

Does anyone know if anyone at FCA is in charge ? Sergio Marachino clearly is out to lunch .

How has no automotive journalist written a story about these welds and frames yet? It's a worthy story.

It’s a great question. The complaint found on NHTSA directly correlates to customer concerns (most notably the case of the track bar weld breaking during highway speed). Just because someone makes a complaint w/ NHTSA doesn’t mean it’s true, however, you’d think a journalist may want to investigate. Prove it false & put us at ease or validate it, & motivate Jeep to get transparent.
