Does anyone know what the Disk Brake Rotors recall entails? The recalls are too old and the pdf links are not active. Since this is a 20 yo vehicle I doubt if it would still be running the original rotors? Although it does only have 94K miles on the clock so maybe they are original? Maybe I can score new rotors for free with the recall?

I HAD most of those recalls myself. I cleaned the ever living out of my jeep for rust and broken nuts (lulz) leaks and what ever. It cost me all of about 20 bucks and a good neighbor with a pressure washer. My front end has been pretty much re-done, breaks, e-break (i don't know what that is!) and there was a re-call for the dana 35 which was fixed free of cost. My jeep runs like a champ and I almost ran over my other neighbor and her snobby dog out of excitement. Keep in mind though, If you "Drag" your jeep in looking like a huge pile of FUBAR the mechs will go on and write you off for some small reason and tell you to get on your way because if something breaks it will cost them money. Most recalls (if i remember correctly) before 95? will have to be called in for independent verification.


TL;DR (too long didn't read) Clean up your machine before getting a recall service.

Low rent man, stay on top of that rust crap. You know the rules of jeeping. 1.rust. 2.clean 3.protect 4.replace

your jeep will live forever if you do that.

here is a song from a guitar wizard that will pump you up like arnold to elevate you to wizard status. (Even though all jeepers are wizards, we sometimes need music to beat those punks that seem keep us down)

tslroper I had the recall for the rotors as well. I'm still waiting on the dealership to call me. Apparently, YJ's sold or registered in the rust belt were not originally equipped with rotors with the correct anti-corrosion material. When replacing my axle shaft u-joint a few weeks ago I noticed the inside of my rotors had huge chunks eaten out of them by corrosion and was getting ready to replace them myself. So, this post just saved me $50.

And that's exactly why my own two hands turn every bolt on my Jeep

billy_YJ Props to my local Jeep dealer for replacing my E-brake & all related parts...

new pedal, pull handle, cable, the works! very pleased!

Also recently noticed a crack(leaking some blow back oil) in the plastic tube coming from the PCV valve to the air filter box so I had them replace that set up while they had it.

Would be a hoot! Come out with brand new peddle assembly and cables for free. Somehow I don't think that will happen. At dealer prices for cables and install would not be a good deal for me.

markharmon Brake recall sounds like it's only the peddle assembly. What if you no cable from assemble to wheels? PO cut the cable to weld faceplate on rusted frame. I have since replaced frame and pulled out the rest of the cut cable. On my list of fixes. I still have the cables attached to each wheel just nothing grim there forward. Those cables are working but should be replaced also.
