Tj frame recall

I changed the way this was worded due to my lack of thinking it threw...So here is the way I should have worded it ( I think) haha

There are a lot of tj from 1997-2003 that have frame related damage from rust. What are your opinions on chrysler ever recalling the damaged ones and fixing/replacing them? I know it could effect many in a negative way and I didnt really think of that when I posted originally. I would never in any way want to cause others to have a negative outcome from something like this...

my frame is mint and my tj has almost 140k. definitely have seen a lot of ****ty frames on TJ's, but you have to buy the right one and maintain it. dont park it over grass all the time cause that eats them like no tomorrow. good luck, its a jeep thing.

There is more than enough people on this forum to make a complaint. So lets take the power of one of the biggest jeep forums and make a stand.

If anyone has the info that we need to start this please send it to me. I will be contacting some Lawyers to get advice on how to proceed further actions. You will be amazed on what a group can get accomplished.
How many rusted out under even a 7/100 warranty period?

A lot of us are still amazed at the dumb things newbs post. You obviously have no idea what a recall is and what would cause one to be set in motion. You may be over exaggerating the number of issues, it would take more numbers for a voluntary recall or a proven number of deaths/serious injury for a required recall.

120k miles, 15 years old, and the frame along with everything else is 99.99% rust free.

Sorry for the lack of intelligence of a noob........ I did auto glass for 15 years, Over those years I have witnessed many car manufactures recall there vehicles for safety issues ( pontiac Montana had rust issues on roof causing structure failure they were recalled, Ford explorer recalled, Venture van rust recall) why not jeep? If you dont want to contribute positively then move on........ How do you think those all got called back? It is easy to sit on your A@# and make negative worthless comments, Im asking for those who have or had this problem and there are lots to chime in and give positive answers..

I don't think this is such a great idea. I Know I wouldn't want it to work like the one did for the Toyota owners!!! I'm NOT giving up my 99 TJeep to see it go to the crusher!!! I might feel different if I had bone stock TJ, but I'm not going to start a 5 year build all over.

If you have a really bad side rail rust erosion, Just bite the bullet and go to autorust.com and find the
Safe-T-Cap. these guys are in Rhode Island. It look like a good set up.
There is a article (Salt Licked) on the Safe-T-Cap on page 84 of the Feb 2012 issue of Four Wheeler Magizine.

Just to clarify what a recall is from the noob...Auto recalls are very costly legal matters whereby the auto makers notify both dealers and individual consumers of a defect in their vehicle. As the origin of the recall is the fault of the car manufacturer, these repairs and/or replacements are made at no cost to the consumer or the auto dealer. Recalls may be issued for both purchased and leased vehicles.

Wait! The CJ crowd needs in on this! Our frames rot out in the back all the time! Clearly something needs to be done about this naturally occuring oxidation! I won't take it! I demand a recall!

I know what you are saying about starting over.... It would be a choice you can make if you wanted to turn it in or not...If your frame is good then it wouldn't even apply to you... Im aware of the fixes there are but it is frustrating to deal with...I did not post this to be bashed I posted this to bring light on a problem that many of us experience...

I have a 64 Bonneville wagon that has some rust also....I'm certain that most of the other ones out there have this issue as well. See where I'm going with this? I worked at a Jaguar/Saab/Land Rover dealer for a long time, and understand how recalls work. I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors.

Actually the rear on the cj/yj rotted due to poor drainage.. The rear leaf mount restricted the ability to drain the water/sediment and it would build up and cause rot...
