FCA is buying back my current JLUR - after 8 months of building starting fresh with a 2019 JLUR I'm picking up this coming Thursday. Every option available except the proximity door sensors and one touch sky top.

Dealership is putting the steel bumpers on this coming week before pick up, meanwhile my satin black AEV Borahs just arrived. Having rings painted gloss black to give the wheels some contract, being mounted with 35x12.5x17 KM3s.

Lots more in the mail...

If you don't mind my question is what was the reason FCA did a buy back ?

Multitude of issues - blown speakers, body gaps - the biggest being the steering wobble and steering being loose. I think the Jeep I'm currently with that's waiting to go back to Stericycle is on it's third dampener, Rough Country track bar and extended control arms. Wobble is coming back already.

All of this after I spent over a month waiting for the parts to arrive at dealership only to have them install the wrong parts while I waited 4 hours in the waiting area.

I'm very much looking forward to the day where I never have to e-mail anyone from the dealership or FCA ever again.

Wow ! My jeep has been leaking antifreeze since day one still has 12 miles on it . I'm working with Jeep right now to get it corrected. I purchased it out of state I don't know if that was such a good idea . I'm just disappointed as Hell right now.

God speed. Like I said, Thursday I was supposed to pick up my new 19 JLUR only to find out the dealership didn't even order the steel bumpers until last minute - somehow they're telling me they didn't order them last minute. Go figure...

I'm excited to get a new JLUR, but will never go through this process again.

At least the Jeep is being replaced - some folks on here are still having large issues with their JLs / JLUs with no end in sight.

That's a good thing for you but what you had to go through is absolute B.S.

Picked up the JLUR this morning - meanwhile shop sent me photos of the tires mounted. Can't wait to get these on tomorrow - rings also came in powder coated black to match the JLUR body color.
