Build Dates and Shudder Issues

My current plan is to order a 4x4 Hemi Overland sometime around the 1st of March. After scouring this forum for months, the only issue that concerns is me is the shudder issue. I'd like to do a poll of owners with the shudder issue by build date. Hopefully we'll see the shudder issues fading over time.

Re: Build Dates and Shudder Issues

You might want to update your poll to correct the January - March dates to 2011.

November '10
I don't think mine is as bad as others but I do have a shudder during certain downshift conditions. Didn't notice it until 4000 miles

Re: Build Dates and Shudder Issues

Question, is this still a problem with Jeeps in production? I know it isn't wide spread but has Jeep acknowledge the issue (albeit in a small %)?

If your not ordering a Overland until march its not going to be built until summer. I would expect the shudder problem has long since been fixed by then. Another reason I held off until now to order mine, I didnt want to deal with crap like that.

Re: Build Dates and Shudder Issues

Summer's not until late-June, so I'm hoping it won't take that long to start building it (that's 16 weeks after order). Hell, I'm hoping it's built and delivered by early May. In any event, I get where you're coming from, and the shudder is one issue (730N RHB and saving money are others) that's pushing back my order date. I've gone on 4 test drives in the last two months and absolutely love these WK2's, but if I drop $41K and get an epileptic vehicle I won't be happy.

BTW, I can't figure out how to change the bad 2010's to 2011 in the poll options. Anyone know if that's possible?
