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.

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

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.

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?

Great poll idea. I'd like to see if their addressing this issue at the factory.



btw I'm waiting for the 2012 GC srt.
