No, it doesn't have air suspension. Here only Over has it.
Before the shaft was replaced with a new one with the green dot, I felt some click in the steering when starting or braking until stop. Now it's gone.

Update.
Today I'm again in my dealership. Tested two GC's Limited with conventional suspension and Overland CRD with air suspension.
Both don't have excess road feel on steering wheel. Air suspension feels a little bit softer than coil springs, but steering is the same.
Tech tried my GC and the one I've tested and found no difference in general. He said he feels a little backlash in steering in some circumstances but this doesn't affect the performance and they are not able to detect which part causes it without to completely disassemble front end of the vehicle and replace one part after another until the backlash eliminates! Monkeys!
Will write to Chrysler and ask for step by step replacement of some parts.

Update
Problem has been solved completely by replacing the bearing on steering shaft.

Re: Feel road in steering

This is great news! Thanks for the update. Was this repaired under a specific TSB?

No there in no specific TSB for this bearing replacement. But since it was defective from the plant, there might be some other Jeeps with the same problem.
