Contacted my local dealer to get in line for this! its for all 2018-2000 Wranglers and Gladiators, so i wonder if the parts will be hard to come by.

They said the steering Gear wont be available till mid september, and said i have to bring the vehicle in to get checked for other codes that could be the cause of the "wander" before they order the parts and also so a tech can confirm the vehicle is doing what the service bulletin says it will fix.....

So hopefully they agree it wanders and don't say, "That's how jeeps feel, go home pizza boy."

My Sport S drives straight as a string with little input. But it would be nice to get a new, steel steering box. Makes me wonder if whining to the dealer would get a new steering box. Although I'd be worried the "technician" would make things worse somehow.
If you don't have problems with it I would leave it alone...

Good news. My faith in Jeep will be restored when it's done and works.

Anyone know a dealer in Maryland that will do this on a modified jeep. All the dealers near me said they will not service due to my Rock Krawler lift?
Really?

I called to inquire about it at Central Florida Dodge and the service department said they've been down this road before and there is no update. Extremely argumentative and said a TSB is between technicians only. LOL Looks like I will wait until others go through this to save the stress of dealing with complete imbeciles.

Yea ill probably call and have them look. If they complain about the additions ill just argue that I had to do something about the problem my self since they couldn’t fix it and the tsb wasn’t out at that point.

Well I'll probably go ahead and throw the brace on anyway. The bracket needs the extra support. Who knows when I'll go back to the dealer or if the "fix" is really fixed.

Someone with a big brain want to explain the rationale for EHPS?!?
