Thumbs up Took deliver of my 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Artic this past Friday,

and I'm new here. The Jeep only had 15 miles on it when I took delivery, and I drove it about 120 miles since then. I noticed that the steering had a bit of play (too much in my opinion), and/or it seemed to want and drift from side to side in my lane(s), more so than I'm used to. Is this normal for a Jeep?

I'm probably posting this in the wrong place. If so, the name of the forum where I should post this would be appreciated. And if there's a Technical Service Bulletin forum here, I would appreciate that and use it, too.

I'm past my lunch break, so haven't had time to really explore yet.

Congrats! I checked out the Artic at my local dealership one night and loved it. Went the next day to check it out more, inside and all, but it was sold!

I have always said my girl friends wrangler has a lot of "play" in the steering.

Sorry it got sold. Mine was the only Arctic there w/ a hard top. I'm a vet, and I've always wanted a Jeep. My wife had a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and she loved it, but I wanted the Wrangler. Figured that I'd never get a 'vette or another Harley, so this is OK to my thinking. Of course, it's basically loaded, so not a base model by any means, but I kinda' like my creature comforts.
