2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Recall

Let's hope the Scrambler's reliability is better than the new JL's because it already has a recall issued fro the left rear frame section.
Quote:
The rear under body ladder rail may corrode, possibly reducing the strength of the rear floor pan and causing the left rear seat mount to become loose.
So a chunk can just fall off while you're driving a few years down the road if not less. So far they don't have a solution so owners have to wait until this summer at least.

I think the concern is more around the rear seat staying secure in a crash, which obviously is a huge safety concern. Lets hope they get this ironed out before Scrambler production gets into full swing. There's going to be delays if they have to go back and repair all these JL's.

At least this recall has been issued far before owners would encounter any problems with it. I highly doubt anyone with a new JL has seen any signs of corrosion already. I'm assuming they will either provide some sort of cover for those rails or replace them altogether.

They'll probably replace those rails, but with how many Wranglers are sold the replacement parts may take a while to be distributed to everyone.

I mean if they are corroding that then probably means that they will require some sort of protection from the elements. Or perhaps they will change the kind of material that the rails are being made out of.
