Just saw your post and since I own a Jeep Wrangler X I decided to check around and I found this.
Chrysler (TJ) Jeep Wrangler - Clutch pedal pushrod
Supplier Name: DaimlerChrysler Australia/Pacific Pty Ltd
Product Make: Jeep
Product Model: (TJ) Wrangler
Target Number: 79
Model Years From: 2006
Campaign Number: RC F22
Product Info: This recall applies only to the above vehicles equipped with a manual transmission built from 3 November 2005 through 13 February 2006.
Defect Details: The clutch pedal pushrod on a number of vehicles may break and allow clutch engagement when the pedal is depressed. This can increase the vehicle's stopping distance and/or cause engine stalling.
Consumer action: Contact any authorised Chrysler Jeep Dealership to have the replacement carried out as soon as possible. If you have sold the vehicle please contact DaimlerChrysler on phone number 03 9566 9380, fax number 03 9566 6223 or via e-mail: renee.boyddaimlerchrysler.com
I contacted the dealer where I purchased my Jeep and he said mine was made in October 2005 and a VIN search found that mine was not subject to any recall. He stated that it may have been a problem with a "batch" built during the time period listed above. Odd that one month would make any difference. Did they change the part after October I wonder or will mine be on the list at a later date? I have around 6,500 mi. on mine since March 2006. I have been "laid" up and have not put many miles on it in the last year

Sometimes I think that Jeep/Chrysler only recalls the vehicles that they are required to and not all the vehicle that they should. I think they work on the same cost/benefit, risk v. profit, pay-out on a lawsuit v. cost of recall theory as Ford Motor Company.
Remember the Exploding Pintos, Crown Vicky Fire-bombs, and the Roll-Over-Explorers.
Back to Jeep there was a recall on the heaters on the Jeep Wranglers. Mine was not included (outside the Serial Number Range) even though it had all the problems of the recall.
It was only one month newer than the ones recalled.
Jeep Customer Service said that second owners are not eligible to benefit of some recalls. ...weird huh???
By the way, Do you fly?

I'm sure this has been addressed before, but here goes anyway! My 98 Sahara's wipers work only on high. I have lost the low and intermittent function. This started as a gradual problem, but now High is all that works. Where do I start?

Yeah..no doubt you are probably right. I am hoping against hope that my Jeep was in a separate "batch" and won't have that problem If I have the plastic part I don't know what difference it would make when it was made.
I only fly enough to keep my license. Good luck.

I have a 99 Wrangler - went to get the normal service and they SAID they had to replace BOTH DIFFERENTIALS. Many people have asked me if I heard ping-sounds, etc. NO THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG -- then I called another Jeep dealer who said he'd never heard of REPLACING them. It was about $3,000 I didn't have. Anyone ever heard of having to replace them? Thanks.

First, has it always done this, or has it just started?
Second, are you driving on a hard surface, or are you off-road in loose dirt or gravel?

I can't think of anything that could be wrong with them that wouldn't be giving dramatic symptoms of something amiss.
Why not ask the dealer for an explanation as to why they need replacing?
#721 of 1886 2002 Wrangler radiator leak
Feb 17, 2007 (4:57 pm)
I had a coolant leak that was spraying all over the inside of the hood and on the engine. I decided it was the radiator because of where the coolant was pooling up. I replaced the radiator and the problem wasnt fixed. Can't figure out where the leak is coming form. Anyone familiar with this problem?
