I think new Wrangler need call back, very dangerous!

When you in big turning, the from tyer may touch the brake system and abs system pipes... this can cause brake system lose efficient....See the pictures.


I think we should request the chrysler to proceed the call-back proceedure before anybody hurt....

Maybe the issue is only on your JK or a relatively small number of them?
