I love the soft ride of the JTR. Its nice and smooth. Its supposed to be that way - makes bumps, dips, and things off highway much more comfortable. IMO that's how it is supposed to be. I really dont understand why people want it to be stiff. I mean every truck I have been in that was stiff was terribly uncomfortable and jarring. That gets tiring on a long drive. Even my OBS that had a super slick suspension setup was soft - not as soft as the JTR but close, and it still could haul and tow significant weight just fine.I can’t say that I’ve run into anything yet (650 miles) that irks me enough to start a thread about it. I had a good idea of what I was getting into though, as far as vehicle capabilties and limitations go. i.e. The ride quality complaints…to me…the JTR rides like I would expect a (essentially) lifted Jeep to ride.
Yes this gets me often. Need some vibration dampening on steering column. I know turning the music off will help you determine if it's a problem or not but never had this in a car before that I can remember.The vibration in the steering wheel from the stereo doesn't bother me, but it did surprise me the first couple of times I noticed it. I thought there was something wrong with the Jeep.
I have been a dedicated jeep purchaser since 1989 and its just amazing the factory flaws on a $60,000 dollar vehicle compared to the $10,000 dollar 1989 jeep commanche.Mine just went in for the drive shaft too. At 38000 miles. Was told the bolts were loose and broke off. Blessed to have a loaner available same day.
Mine was from loose bolts after the rear main seal was replaced.I have been a dedicated jeep purchaser since 1989 and its just amazing the factory flaws on a $60,000 dollar vehicle compared to the $10,000 dollar 1989 jeep commanche.
I hope your vehicles issues gets resolved.
