Even if the frames are outsourced, the factory is still responsible for INSPECTING them. Who is your QA inspector, Stevie Wonder?

Who is the frame manufacturer ? The Three Stooges ? Or the chinese robots ?

Shhhh ... we must be quiet ... the executives are having a self-congratulation meeting , dividing their bonuses , and do not want to be disturbed .

It really is embarrassing if not criminal that a company, and it's workers let this go out to market. Where is their pride? My vehicle isnt in the recall and the welds are no where near as bad as some pics but I have the holes, and some very ugly what appears to be after the fact weld repairs, slag on the frame and even on the suspension springs. Thinking I should have waited for the bronco.

Despite seeing sales slow down considerably in September?

This is a risky move. Not only are Wrangler sales slowing down due to high pricing, but the automotive market in general is forecast to slow down as the booming economy starts to level off this winter.
Maybe I missed it but sales might always go down in september. It's why sales numbers are typically linked to the same period in the previous years and not the month prior.

Dont think the high price has anything to do with it. The economy is booming and most think it will continue into at least 2019. If tax plan II happens along with an infrastructure bill it will likely continue beyond that.

I didnt spend 50k on my ruby but considering what you get in capability vs the older jeeps it's worth it. I spent in total mid 40s for my built up TJ for stuff that the ruby (mostly) already has. It's money well spent. Unless of course you have frame issues. lol

I think this speaks more about the societal ignorance that is rampant across this country and the world. The plan to ensure humans remain dumb and reactionary is clearly working. How can anyone be that enthusiastic about a vehicle with such poor oversight on the production line? Sure it is gorgeous, but the problems are not work the risk.

If you think societal ignorance is bad across the country and the world , it is far worse in Cali , where individual ignorance is prevalent .

In Cali there are people in food preparation who have never washed their hands during their entire lives .

Maybe they’re all using the same fake ID, so all three have the same name :idea:
Exactly so ! In fact , in Cali , likely hundreds of thousands use the same fake ID .

Of course , the restaurant owners share some of the blame , because they never have hot water turned on for even the customers .

Now you want them to wash their hands and use hot water? I suppose you require soap too. What's next, hair nets and disposable gloves? Do your fancy doctors have to wear masks when operating? I bet you require that used needles be disposed of hygenically as well...
