Track bar sheared off at the weld. I feel like I’m cursed with my new JL

So that is the weld wire sticking out ? You ought to ask a Jeep auto body expert about that .

I wouldn't worry about the amount of money at this point . That's water under the bridge .

You ought to call Mike Manley , CEO , to have a dedicated engineer assigned to your Jeep VIN number . Good luck .
Yes that is the weld wire, and not really worried about the money just disappointed the quality for the money, and thank you for the info... I will look him up and see if there is a way to call him..

These are my welds inspected it this morning. Not on the recall list fingers crossed. Mine was built July 16, 2018 at 6am. No QA marks on mine other than an green mark mid section of the track bar.

I would have some concerns, you can see the edges of the bracket in a few places. That would indicate the weld is of a little out of line. Especially the last one.

Still 10x better than a lot of them shown on here

GM used to make M-48 and M-60 tanks perfectly according to their military contracts .

If you look at the edges on all of them they are all pretty much the same. They would probably have to recall every single Jeep just to touch up the edges and I don’t see that happening. If it gets to bothering me that much I’ll take it to one of our off road shops before to have the corners welded before I take it to the dealer for any weld jobs.

So on Saturday I sent a private message to Jeep cares and today Monday I got a reply..
Lydia sent me a message asking my to set an appt ASAP so I did, She stated she will be creating a case for us and assigning me a Case specialist, Waiting to hear back from her to let me know if they will be there at the dealer the day of my appt or if someone will be assigned to my case.. will keep everyone posted as to how this situation turns out..

I got my Jeep in late July but the date was 6-18 for the build. My welds also look like yours but I'm on the recall list too.

They never heard of Carroll Shelby and Dan Gurney , but they heard of Microsoft . They don't have a wrench , but they have a mobile phone . In other words , they're stupid .
