You would think, that after the 07 JK/JKU(6 years) having the same tranny line leak troubles Chrysler woulda paid a LITTLE more attention/w the 2012/2013, but NOPE-

Gotta acceptit, I guess !

yeah just got my letter it also says "we do not have the parts to fix this problem, But will send you another letter when the parts are a available"
I'll have to go check mine in the morning.

This IS a new issue that Chrysler has suddenly recognized.
Be afraid. Do not disregard. Read on.
I do believe that this is for Pentastar engines only, but I am not sure about that.
Had this exact problem last year on my 2012 Rubicon. Stuck in the desert 25 miles from any assistance. Got towed in by a Forerunner!
Stupid 2 bit hanger that's supposed to hold the two cooler lines is a pencil thin plastic piece, friction fit into a hole on the RH side engine crankcase flange.
When it broke, the lines dropped onto the power steering tubes, front LH side of the engine, before they go out to the cooler in front of the radiator. Wore through and that's where the leak will occur.
The Jeep had never been off road to this point, so no abuse involved.
Local Palm Springs dealer said no warranty issue, so I paid to get it out of the shop, but continued to argue.
Months later, I was reimbursed, but there really was no recognition that this was an actual warranty problem.
Now, 10 months later, Chrysler does recognize a problem, and will hopefully put a better (49 cent!) piece in there to hold it all better. Woo-hoo!!
Here's link to the Safety Recall Notice, if you have not got one yet

Do not ignore this, it can cause catastrophic issues, like a burned Jeep, which I have heard of.
Look under your Jeep, just inside of the RH front wheel, and see if the hanger and the two tubes are in place. One rock off the front wheel could break this feeble item, and/or damage the tubes themselves. I think that a guard should be placed here.
I want my stick shift back; no cooler!
