FCA Stop Sale and Recall on JL Wranglers Due to Welds...

#2
Mine falls under this recall and after looking at the trackbar, it looks fine. Some of the other frame welds, however, do not. Lots of porosity, silicon deposits, and sharp edges where spatter built up in the nozzle and then stuck to the frame.

Similar to ours. We are going to take ours back to the dealership to have them look at all the welds and document it.

I stopped by the dealership last night to check on this and as expected they knew of this recall but not much about it. They were only able to provide the information we already knew, that there is a stop sale and no fix yet. I'm curious how this will play out, will it remain trackbar only or will it grow to looking at all of the frame welds? Will there be a repair crew traveling around fixing frame welds since most dealers aren't going to have certified welders on staff?
