Minor Feedback In Steering Wheel -- Resolved
 
My '11 Overland, 5.7, had a minor shudder / feedback in the steering wheel when I was braking or reversing slowly and braking. I believe it also had a bit of a vibration around 65-75 mph.

I took it into Jeep two different times with this complaint, and they could not duplicate this behavior. However, as I was chatting with the service manager, he did state he was doing some research on this issue and found that the steering Intermediate Shaft (IMS) underwent a change at some point during production.

The service manager ordered the new IMS, installed it, and it has completely solved the problem.

Thought I would advise everyone of the IMS issue and suggest this to the service department if you are experiencing similar issues.
