I had to laugh when this arrived in my e-mail folder:

E-mail - 1.jpg

Mind you I have sloppy steering that I'm working hard to get some attention towards a fix. So, this e-mail takes the cake. If you notice, all four tire pressures are different. Wonder why? Well, FCA looked in on my Jeep when I was airing down at the start of a trail. I use the individual, adjustable deflators and I start at the drivers front tire and work my way counterclockwise around the Jeep. It takes way less than 10 minutes to do all four tires, so they peeked into my system near the end of that 10 minute period.

Anybody else experience this?

Are you saying that every time someone airs down, they get a report like this?
I've never received any notifications when airing down. I do get a monthy email about Wranger's health.

I have gotten these emails every time I’ve aired down. 3 or 4 times.

I don't have UCONNECT and I don't use the TPMS system--

I wonder if that upsets them ??

Probably not ... they are most likely monitoring you on the curmudgeon channel.

@JIMBOX Actually TPMS has been very good to me, both on and off road. I ran over something in the HOV lane on the 101 through Phoenix during rush hour traffic. The TPMS alerted me before I could feel the problem in the Jeep's handling. I had just enough time to get out of the HOV lane and across four additional lanes to an exit ramp before the tire went flat. Saved the rim, 'cuz I'd of driven on it to get out of the cutthroat traffic at quitting time. And, on a trail, it alerted me to problems in enough time to find a flat spot to change the tire ... that road didn't have many flat spots. So, I'd even pay for it if it was a stand alone system.
