First, I appreciate the work that goes into this thread. I am contributing by noting that the sky is not falling for all 2005-2006 owners regarding the OPDA. I'd submit that I, and tens of thousands of others, have no issues with it. Did you know that people read this thread and then have an irrational fear of their OPDA going out, or choose not to buy a 2005-2006 Wrangler based on this thread alone (hurting your resale value)? I'm trying to balance the fear-mongering, I'm sorry if you don't understand how that's useful. I've also never stooped to personal insults, but you let them fly at will.
I show Jeep sold ~80,000 Wranglers in 2006, and ~70,000 in 2005. So our baseline is 150,000 2005-2006 Wranglers potentially impacted by the OPDA.
So I spent lunch reading:
47 votes and 12 are doing something about it. Not that they have problems, just that they are doing something about it. That's 0.008%.
That's for 2006 owners only, sadly I can't vote. So that means I can't see the vast amount of data collected. The thread is 13 posts long.
75 total votes, 23 said no issue, 21 don't know. So from that, we're at 0.02% of all 05-06 Wranglers having this issue. And, 0.029% of those that may have inspected, found no problem, or they don't even know.
then you'd see that the clear majority of those who've inspected have discovered a potential problem.
That's not what your data shows.
I contrast this thread with the thread about gas tanks overfilling. They have a lot of data pointing to that being a major issue. They even have a system set up to report that data to Jeep (which I've done) in the hopes of getting a recall. Isn't the OPDA potentially a larger issue? If so, then where's the similar effort to do something about it?
