Need some helpful advice ASAP!!!!! '05 OPDA concern
Hey guys found an 05 sport loved the Jeep test drove and checked everything checked out good so I put $100 deposit on it and was going to pick it up either Monday or Tuesday I've been looking for 6-8 months now and passed on a few so I was excited that I found my Jeep then I come back home jump on the computer and read about the opda issues the 05-06 have I check the Vin # and it has the s 8 digits over im not sure about the build date but from what I'm reading its pretty much all 05-06 prone to Having this problem at some point. Now I don't know what to do . I'm about ready to give up on this whole Jeep thing and just keep my beater I have now. Any opinions on my issue. I have read the Jeep forum on the issue and just don't know if I should still buy it or stay far far away. As anybody bought one recently and not worried about this? Should i bring this up to the dealer today? Any opinions or thoughts would be great. Thanks
Don't let the OPDA issue scare you if you like the jeep and the price. First, it doesn't hit everybody. Personally, 127k and counting on the stock OPDA. Second, with the work done by people here the issue is very manageable. Check out the stripperguy mod.
^^^ x2. i had an 05 with over 80k on it and never had an issue. I'd bring it up to the dealer and see what they say, maybe you can get them to do the leg work and see if this jeep has the problem. or knock a few hundred off cause "you will have to fix the problem" even if there isnt one. its all part of the game. I got a grand off mine for pointing out a few issues
Ill bring it up see what dealer says freaking Jeep is nice just what I wanted even has the 3.73 gears and the rear Dana 44 axle and only 38800 miles just freaking me out when I read all this. I usually have bad luck. Haha thanks for the input so far

Talked them down to 15,500 I did kbb and it was around 17,800 to 18,000 I'm comfortable with the price but just that darn opda. Another question do u have to be a knowledgeable mechanic to replace the mod from stripperguy or can pretty much anybody do it?
