Has anyone considered changing tire brand? I wonder if it's the brand of tires. I went to Michelins on my 2013 JKU Sahara, and it drove much better than the stock tires.I would be taking it back to the dealer. Mine rode like a car new, and now with the lift, rides/handles better; TP around 35 with the summer roads raising it up.
There seems to be a steering issue with the new JLs (not all of them, but many of them). I have been back to the dealership 3 times (including getting the latest TSB update [TSB# 08-092-18] which helps a bit, but doesn't solve the problem). I have a 4th appointment this week to look further. There is a thread on the forum here that is followed by Jeep - search for "steering" and you should find it. Join us over there to make your issue known. If we all keep complaining, we may get a solution to this pesky steering issue.I just picked up a fully loaded Rubicon JLU. I took it on my first highway/Interstate short trip. The Jeep wanders a lot in the lane and the steering is vague and a little abrupt when correcting with lots of roll. I don't remember my older Jeeps driving this way.
So do I have an alignment / toe in issue or is this normal for these now?
Nice. Mine is MUCH worse than my 2015 JK Rubicon. Hope this helps. Very loose on steering/wandering at all speeds over 30 MPH.You're noticing what so many others are. The JL drives like s****.
It has NOTHING to do with tires. So don't waste your time there.
Just yesterday, FCA released a TSB on this issue which may be the fix we've all been waiting for. It involves reprogramming the software to change the electric motor assist ratio. Check with your dealership to see if they can do this update for you and it may really help!
Mine PCM was flashed about two weeks ago and my Jeep drives considerably better now.
Wait for the 19s - not that far off. Put in your order once they open it up. Merry Christmas!!!Test drive a JL Unlimited Sahara and a JL Unlimited Rubicon last Tuesday at a dealer. I noticed the wondering issue also but only on the Rubicon. It was noticeable and a bit of a pain. I drive a lot for work and it would get on my nerves after awhile for sure.
FJ continues to go and go and go... probably gunna hold out for ‘19 now
No. Again, this has nothing to do with tires or tire pressures. The guys dropping 3 PSI and claiming it fixes the problem are fooling themselves. It's almost funny. :cwl:Has anyone considered changing tire brand? I wonder if it's the brand of tires. I went to Michelins on my 2013 JKU Sahara, and it drove much better than the stock tires.
