The Gap between the fenders and the side panels is there a reason for it? All it does is catch sand,rocks and debris should have rubber or something in there so thing flow out.
I agree. Until FCA addresses this, do you need a link to the rubber piping that I, and many of us have put in this gap to address it?

There are over 5,909 posts in just one of the JL steering problem threads and bad steering is mentioned in several reviews like the one from Car and Driver. It will be interesting if the steering issue will be seriously discussed in the livestream or not.

The main JLWranglerForum steering thread: https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/fo...ering-feels-like-it-has-play-and-drifts.3691/ (search steering for many other threads)

Letter to Jeep from the NHTSA regarding steering and other issues: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/inv/2019/INIM-PE19012-77759.pdf

This is what was quoted…

"I fired off a quick email to Jeep's PR reps to see if there was something mechanically different between our 2019 Wrangler's steering and this newer 2020 one"

"Jeep's reps helpfully confirmed that Wrangler engineers had made both steering gear valve tuning and pump calibration changes that would result in lighter, lower-effort steering. "

This is the article…

Perfect, i have a horrible bump steer issue in which i do not feel safe at speeds. I've lowered air pressure and had alignment. All helped but something is still WRONG. Also, i have the AD steering box.

What I like about the responses to this thread is they are all very constructive. [sometimes we can get kinda agitated]. Of all of the suggestions, I think that discussion of the steering issue is one of the most important topics. Jeep: Please address this one head-on.

That said, as a longtime JK owner, and soon-to-be JL purchaser, I'm not sure if it's really a "thing", or that Jeep is now attracting more non-Jeep owners and they have passenger car expectations.

Have a question about the Uconnect 5.0 With 12.3 screen. Will this option be available for 2021 Wrangler?

Because jeeps are the go to vehicle to be towed behind motor homes it would be nice if there was a wiring option for lights and charging the battery etc. especially important with all the computerization.

Hears a question. When recording a trail using nav., the trail stops recording when you turn off the ignition. When you start going again you have to start recording a new trail. Why can't the trail keep recording until I stop it. My 2009 Rubicon continued recording until I stopped it.
