You're welcome.

I'm on a mission to try and help people avoid the aggravation that I had when mine let go. It is a PITA when it lets go way out in the "jungle".

Having a spare in the glove box will turn the frown into a smile!

jk'n They couldn't find it at my dealer because they tried to look it up by it's assembly part number. The bushing as listed is not replaceable. The whole linkage has to be replaced. Then he tried looking it up a different way. After he found it he generated a TSB on it.

Yes, that info is in this thread.

The part number on the bushing is 68064273-AA.

mud707 When I bought my 07 used. I had to get the brake reflash recall done on it. Took it to the dealer and spent all day there while they tried to do it. They said they were having problems with their programer. Recalls don't cost you but TSB may depending on the dealer. Make sure you get a carfax report (money well spent especially if the dealer won't provide one.) on any used vehicle you buy and a good warranty. My warranty is from a third party but covers a lot more than Jeep's warranty does. You can find out any recall info for a jeep your interested in buying by going to there Jeep's web site and while there you can request a build sheet to find out exactly what yours came equipped with. You will need the vin number to do this.

Over all I'm pretty satisfied with my 07 never had a problem with the hard top leaking or the 4wd shifter. I just make sure I install the hard top and shift it into 4wd like the manual says. Only problem I have had is the DW problem. It hit around 39k miles and the dealers don't seem to know what exactly is the cause of this and after having my jeep for awhile and never fixed it, the DW seemed to go away after I kept driving it for a few weeks. They did replace almost everything on the front end though and my warranty policy covered it.

If you're looking at an '07 or '08, make sure that the current Recall for the Overheating Auto Tranny has already been done. You don't want to buy one, then find out later, that you MAY have to foot the bill for the Update. Generally, all Recalls are paid for my the Manufacturer, but I'm not sure in the case of 2nd/3rd/4th Owners. This is only for the Auto Tranny... does not affect the 6-Speed Manual Tranny.

If you're looking at one, take a buddy with you, that has some Jeep savey too, and knows what to look for. Two sets of eyes are always better, when looking at a Used Rig!

Best of Luck!

Cheers!

inzgary x2 on the top. The most common problem seems to be a leaking hard top with those new freedom panels.

jk'n Welcome to the forum.

I haven't been reading a lot about that on the forums about 07s or any other for that matter.

Leaky hard top has been a problem.

Overheating automatic has been a problem.

Jumping out of gear (JOG) in first has been a problem.

Other miscellaneous things but nothing major that I've seen a rash of.

Happy hunting.
