Jeep now has 1,000 miles and so have noticed the dead zone has gotten worse over time. Does anybody have any similiar experience with there being excess play in the steering wheel where no input is sent to the wheels? 2018 JLUR. I'd say atleast a degree of movement left and right before it catches and starts steering the tires. my TJ on 37s is expected to do this...not a brand new mom van. Dealership visit maybe?

Is there any way to tighten it up if you want to?

I'm approaching 4000 miles on mine, steering is perfect, you got a problem.

Go to the shop and ask for an alignment. I did it today and it helped. I also ordered the Rough Country Steering Stabilizer, I guess that would help too.
