I have a 2019 JLUR with 9K miles on it. I think my steering box is loose, and plan on taking to the dealer to check it out. Are they going to give me a hard time because it has been off-roaded and lifted?

Here is what I have changed.

2.5 inch spacer lift under the stock springs
Core 4x4 adjustable front LCAs
Teraflex TieRod and Drag Link
Factory steering stabilizer mounted above TieRod.
Bilstein shocks to match the lift

There are serious scrapes on the diffs and skid plates to indicate that it has been off-road

You should not have any trouble, if so just bring it to Roger Williams Jeep and if you have the aluminum gear box we can warranty out for the new steel one (there is also a program update for the power steering pump)
I also would recommend upgrading the track bar (factory one is hollow and causes sway on the highway)

It's fully dependant on what dealer you bring it to. Basically a crap shoot.

The stock trackbar causes issues because it isn't adjustable after a lift and your axles are off center. Being hollow doesn't have a lot of bearing on that otherwise all the stock vehicles would be having issues.
