    Yes. I had one of the first JLUR’s in my shop and over half the welds on the frame were riddled with porosity and in some cases no fusion at all between some of the brackets and the frame. I told the customer to take his to the dealership immediately and have them look at it. They had an “engineer” look it over and he told the guy it was normal. He ended up taking it to another dealer and trading it off for something else.

    I'm very curious how multiple weld locations could end up bad. I'm assuming they are done at multiple locations throughout the frame building process. Bad gas supply maybe.

    Probably a gas issue. I wouldn’t say it’s a huge deal for Jeep but in our case one of the spring hats was missing a few inches of weld. I personally would just go and grind them out and re-weld them but this wasn’t what the customer wanted. He even offered to sell it to me before trading it in but I wasn’t super motivated. I think he traded it in with only 1500 miles on it and got maybe $38k trade in, with the EVO boost lift and brand new 37” Ridge Grapplers. Would’ve saved me a lot of money.

    Planning on going through my jl. I’m sure it’s fine. I wonder what they’re going to do about the recall. Have the dealership weld them? Idk if I trust them.

    True true. Not unusual for any new design.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
