So because you have larger tires, which is encouraged for these vehicles, including by FCA/Mopar, you don't qualify to have the upgrade that fixes a known steering issue....

Its a Wrangler....they handle like hogs.

You people are hilarious.

"We want answers!!"....LOL!!!
You don't have a problem, great. Other people do. I've driven and owned the types of vehicles you described. There is something wrong with the steering in my JL. There is a dead spot at the top of the steering.

First sentence in black and white is telling you there is nothing wrong with the Jeep.

Secondly, if you dont know that adding larger tires will make it steer differently, especially if psi isn't adjusted correctly and/or the quality of the tire is subpar...then you really should sell your freakin Jeep.

It truly is basic common knowledge 101 for anyone who knows anything about Wranglers.

...seriously, this thread is hilarious.

What a load of shit.
If any of you want to have a real conversation on how you can greatly improve your steering, then let's have at it.

There are a couple of upgrades you can do that can change everything.

Until then..knock it off with the nonsense. It's absolutely ridiculous.

I never said they wouldn't try to further improve the steering. If a better track bar improves it why not?

Tons of new and improved parts for the JL have been released. It'll never end.

By no means does that mean the current system is broken.

Have you upgraded to an adjustable stabilizer? Adjustable front/rear track bars? Caster angle? Adjustable control arms? What psi you running? What size tire? Lifted? How much lift? 2 door? 4 door? Roof rack(top heavy)? Winch weight up front? Etc etc etc etc.

Above listed would be upgrades not fixes. Every aspect of your Jeep matters in trying to improve her on road manners. Joke is truly on you.

Isn't this whole thread about improving steering on Wranglers with issues? Plenty of us have posted results; fixes, improvements, or failures.

The issue would be upgrading the current system for improvement.

You cant "fix" something that isnt broken.

Responding you is truly a waste and apologize to the others reading this because it is not productive to read. The best I could muster before was an emoji. I’ll refrain from being drawn in by idiocracy.

I love my Jeep, but I’m not stupid enough to look the other way when things are not right.
