Tech bulletins do not equal warranty repairs, they just mean that the same problem has happened enough times that DC has developed a specific repair procedure.

If you're taking delivery, get an extended warranty. The stuff gets fixed for free only if you have the warranty.


99 GC, 4.7, 6" Clayton's LA, 315/75/R16's, FIPK, 3 inch Kolak exhaust, VIAIR 450 OBA, front ARB with Warn HS9500, Kevin's Sliderz, full skids, SURCO, Hi-Lift, Xenon's with Kolak harness, more to follow.

I had my dealership tell me yesterday that 2 seperate TSBs were not covered under the extended warrantly I bought through chrysler with my used 2000 GC ltd. Are only certain TSBs covered under warranty??

A repair, whether there is a TSB or not, depends on the terms of your warranty (regular or extended). Some components are considered wear items (brakes, clutch, tune-up parts, etc.). They are generally not covered. Some warranties only cover major driveline parts, while others are "bumper-to-bumper".

Basically, it depends.

As was previously stated by lbrty9, a TSB is ONLY a recommendation for a repair to a problem. No warranty coverage is implied.

Recalls are always free to the customer, but TSBs are not the same thing. Sometimes, they are incorrectly thought of as the same thing.
