    V95 recall

    Check your vin at the dealer.

    Rear shafts were put together without grease in them

    WTF......... that seems like a pretty important step to not miss.

    Sounds like after they got a few for warranty, they inspected them and found no grease in the driveshaft boot. Kinda like a lifted JK

    The recall, documents posted by NHTSA said, is for Gladiators built between Dec. 15, 2018 and June 25 of this year. The estimated number of the nearly 3,500 Gladiators with a defect is only 5 percent, but likely because of the nature of the recall, a stop sale was issued on affected Gladiators until a fix is complete.

    Trucks involved in the recall could experience a driveshaft fracture, courtesy of some grease left off during assembly. From the documents:

    Certain 2020 MY Jeep Gladiator vehicles built from December 15, 2018, through June 25, 2019, may have a rear driveshaft that was assembled without grease in the monoblock joint portion of the driveshaft. [...]

    A monoblock joint is a constant velocity joint within the center of the driveshaft. A monoblock without grease may overheat and seize, which may result in a fractured rear driveshaft.

    The documents said a fractured rear driveshaft could separate, potentially leading to a loss of motive power if the truck is in rear-wheel-drive mode, or road debris if the driveshaft completely separates from the truck. Owners, the documents said, could experience a noise or vibration before any fracturing.

    Documents said FCA noticed the grease error when it received four driveshafts from warranty repairs and sent them to the supplier for analysis around June, and decided to issue the recall in late August. FCA also said it isn’t aware of any injuries or crashes related to the issue, but that it’s had six warranty claims. FCA confirmed, according to the documents, that trucks not included in the recall were found through supplier records to have been built containing grease.

    FCA said it’ll replace the driveshafts for free in the recall, and that owners who have paid for work related to the problem elsewhere will be reimbursed with the right documentation. The plan is to notify owners on Oct. 18.

    Until then, maybe pay attention to any vibrations that might occur, should you choose to take the truck out of the garage. It might not just be the noise of the whole town abuzz about your mysterious Wrangler pickup truck, but your truck itself, about to have a fractured rear driveshaft.

    Well my JT is part it. The tech had no idea there was a recall and told me to wait a week and check back in. Apparently the computer didn't give him any information on how to handle it. He said they have to wait for Chrysler to come up with a resolution before they can do anything.

    Sounds like they're in no hurry, lol. Nothing to worry about right? Just a fractured rear driveshaft that could separate, potentially leading to a loss of motive power or road debris if the driveshaft completely separates from the truck

    It seemed more like it was 5 o'clock somewhere on a Friday. I'm just going to do town driving for the weekend and go back in Monday. Hopefully some more information will come out by then.

    That’s unfortunate... hopefully they’ll have an answer for it then

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.
