OK my update to my situation... I got my Wrangler back from the dealer last Thursday.... The mechanic (Nick) replaced the entire head assembly on the passenger side with a new one. Also both camshafts on same side. these 3 items along with all the related gaskets and fluids plus labor as a couple buck shy of $2,200. All covered by Chrysler thru the extended warranty.
I read about these horror stories of other Wrangler owners here and I told my wife I feel very blessed to have a good relationship with my Jeep dealer and an honest knowledgeable mechanic to work with.. I can just imagine the total frustration many have experienced. cwhack:
