I didnt think that my Jeep had an issue with the steering but I asked about this tsb while getting another tsb done (passenger seat fix) and my dealer ordered the parts after a short test drive. Boy am I glad I asked. It took a couple months for the new steering box to come in but now that it’s in the steering is so much tighter/stiffer. I was expecting to barely notice but it’s a huge difference. If you are even thinking about it than definitely get it done.
I dropped off my Jeep last night for the real steel steering deal.The first time I had dropped it off, they put another aluminum gear box on it. When I dropped my Jeep off the service manager happen to be there and I said, you know how to tell, if you have the right gear box, put a magnet on it, he laughed!
One thing I forgot to mention, on my slip it showed that they updated the computer software, even though they put on the old aluminum gear box, I was wondering, if maybe the software update made it fell better, even though it had an aluminum gear box?
Chrysler called me out of the blue yesterday to bring my Jeep in to have this TSB performed. I brought in my Jeep about a year and half ago and my dealer insisted that there weren't any issues. I'm guessing there was some record of this that prompted Chrysler to call me. They asked if I still had issues, I told them yes and they immediately got my dealer on the line. Fingers crossed this will actually be fixed on my Jeep!
We had the Iron box installed per the TSB two weeks ago. 2020 JL Willys 2 door. Totally different car, experience. I cannot find words to describe how horrid it was to drive the JL before the new box. could never keep the jeep going straight down the around. Pure garbage driving experience. The new box cured all those problems. Feels like a two door jeep now.
I had my aluminum box replaced with the TSB box this week, the difference is night and day. I also have no dead spots and every thing is rock solid. The only thing I will caution folks on is have some fluid available. when I picked mine up from the dealer the reservoir was full, I drove some miles that afternoon and parked it at home. The next morning I checked the reservoir and it was empty, not low EMPTY. I filled it up drove around town and again checked and it had dropped just a little. I topped it of and have no further fluid drops in the past couple days.
