The junk yard option is an intriguing idea, but I'd be concerned that you might be purchasing someone else's (old) problem. If you decide to go this route, I'd be interested in the cost, as then I'll know how much of a premium I paid to go through the Jeep dealer. However, I have already rationalized it in my mind, as at least I didn't have to pay outrageous labor charges to make this simple part swap.

I have a long road trip planned for the middle of August, so I'll have an opportunity to monitor the temperature over an extended period of use. I'll report the results after I return.
Has the issue returned since you replaced the part?

Re: Is this a A/C blend door problem?

Sorry it took me this long to post the results of replacing the part. I wanted to wait until after my extended road trip to give the problem ample time to resurface -- if it was going to. But I'm happy to report that I have not seen a single reccurance of the problem since replacing the termperature control panel. So I'm going to declare victory and call this problem fixed.

For reference, the part number and description on Jeep dealer invoice is:
55115904AC "SP Control-A"

The cost was $130 plus tax.

Good luck to those of you still experiencing problem!
