I was chasing down this noise.............
......In my front end, when I came upon this.
I discovered multiple broken welds on my steering gear and brackets. The size and quality of the oem welds is pathetic to say the least.
I did some quick rescue welding on it, as I was attending a jeep event early the next morning. The plan is to remove the gearbox completely and weld around the rest of it.
Anyone else have these issues, and what was done to remedy/correct/replace/upgrade. Looking for info and options at this point. My rig is not a DD, but frequently sees long trips, and drivability is a necessity.
And on a side note....I made the 2+ hrs trip to the show, and there was a good turn out this year again.
