    On a somewhat related side-note to this thread. I've been shopping, casually, for a Ram 3500, dually. Having difficulty finding a used one, (hard to find with low miles) I started just looking at new ones. Even Ram trucks are proclaiming a new, thinner, lighter frame under these Heavy Duty, commercial rated trucks.
    With all I've read here, I think I will wait and see if they start breaking or having any other problems.

    I don't know why they always try to fix what ain't broke...

    They are "fixing" as a result of the government mandated fuel economy rules.
    Everything has to get lighter to make it, but with all of the added parts to comply with the safety rules, the reduction has to come from somewhere, or more like a little from everywhere.

    Leave it to the Government... I would rather they go with aluminum body panels like Ford did, than lighten up a 3500's frame.
    Guess I'll keep looking for that elusive creampuff, low mileage, used camper puller.

    Its very worth noting that the steering gear box is on its 5th redesign.... I have a very early build and developed a 1" deadspot in my steering. I called Jeep wave and I danced the dance with the dealer. I paid $80 for a front end alignment that fixed nothing and then Jeep Wave told them to swap my steering box. When I got home I looked up the part number from my paperwork and saw this.

    Now, I'm not running 35s or anything huge, just 33s, but that box was like magic to me and she's still driving pretty damn straight. I think its worth looking at who's got what part numbers. Oh, the one they replaced was the AB version.

    Wow... 5th steering box redesign on a vehicle introduced in late 2017. I think I would shake up the engineering staff.

    Another death wobble question

    So my wife has an 18 JL we bough new a couple months ago. Everything was great for about a month then the death wobble started. The Jeep is mechanically stock. Only things weíve done is side steps, headlights, and a few other aesthetic add ons. The Jeep is a base model 4 door with the basic steel wheels and skinny Michelinís. We are making an appointment with the dealership tomorrow to see about getting it fixed. My question is if it comes down to it and after several attempts they are not able to fix it does the death wobble fall under the lemon law?

    Merged here. You're not alone. With that being said, in your glove box should be a brochure in regards to your rights as a consumer. And obviously if you're still not sure, consult an automotive attorney.

    I know Iím by far not alone. Itís just everything Iíve seen so far on here is people with lifted or running bigger tires trying to mod the jeeps themselves to fix it. Only 4K miles on ours and have not seen anything about dealers solving the problem or anyone getting them to take it back under the Lemmon law.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
