Dropped it off for another rear axle replacement. At least I have a Wrangler JLU for the loaner vehicle. Get to try out the soft top finally lol

D44 with limited slip. Rotational knocking sound. Jeep is replacing the entire assembly for most people with this issue.
So.. you got 2 lemons in a row? Huh?
Please elaborate, seems like FCA is just bleeding away money if that’s their game plan.. we’re still only a year in..

Did they just try to fix it the first time, rather than replace it?
Hub to hub replacement. Only reused my brakes.

It's a common issue with the limited slip D44. No updated parts available yet, so replacement with AA part numbers again and again.

But it happened to you twice, in rapid succession?
And it’s a “common issue with the limited slip D44”?
Do you do anything radically out of the ordinary with your Jeep?
Or are you just unlucky?
Surely you aren’t suggesting that your experience is common. If it was, I think we would have been made aware of it here before, wouldn’t we?

Common as in first time ever we were aware of this recurring issue on this forum, that kind of common? And yes, I do have LSD.
