I have a little bit of cash set aside for mine. When the engine goes or the PCM goes again, its going to get a V8 stuffed in it. I have also got my hands on a set of 1 ton axles and an Atlas(all used). Maybe I will finally graduate to 35s LOL

Mine died with zero issues prior, right at 50k.

Mine died Jan 2017 IIRC. Roughly 90k mikes. That was my second PCM. up and died with no warning. Walked out that morning and the Jeep wouldn’t start.

I, in desperation threw another $600 in to trying to get this POS running. Went the Flagship One route. One week later with PayPal and Legal Documentation (what a sad world) satisfied, I await. Today my FS1 Dashboard showing my order "Processing" after eight calendar days to include one National Holiday. Hope all my fellow Vets had a "Good One", sent email today. I WILL NOT hold my breath, if you pray, pray for CJ's (my G Grand son) Cancer Cure, we will continue to wish and hope for the JP recovery, and pray to 4-wheel with the little man someday soon!

Hope everything works out for you. Cancer is is such a nasty disease, my brother-in-law just lost his battle with pancreatic cancer.

Had really lousy weather for Veteran's day, our US flag we put out was getting beat up thanks to the strong cold front that rolled in, had to bring it in a bit early. USAF 1968-72, Vietnam '71-72.

I hate to be a negative Nancy, but my PCM is with FlagshipOne for the third visit. I have another route planned in the event it comes back broken.

My original P0203 issue, and proven to be originating at the PCM upon injector repairs was never repaired.

I’ll give more information on my experience and what I have learned regarding FlagshipOne at the proper time. Until then, I wouldn’t move in their direction.

That stinks, I was hoping that it worked out for you. You can't find a new one in your area? The dealer here in AZ had the new one I bought and I think 15 or so refurbished ones. I don't remember exactly but I think the refurbished was 6 or 7 hundred.

First thanks for all prayers, third chemo for the little man and he's getting better. They may do a surgery in Jan. Second , thanks for the update Norminator, but a day late, I already pulled the trigger. WayWestJeep I tried two different Front Range Dealer for new OEM parts and both claimed to do a "National" Parts search of dealers, and both came up empty.

I did find a dealer who said they could sometimes reprogram 'Used OEM" IF it was the correct PN. Another $200 down the drain. No dealer even offered me a re-manufactured. GOOD NEWS (maybe) my Flagship PCM arrived 10 days after my order, they did return a reply to my "what's up?" email with a tracking number, it did look like a reman chasis, solid and plated/pained with OEM plug connectors, IT DOES WORK after 24 hr & 25 mi, Norminator's experience haunts at me.

Like many things in life I found what I think could also be a <$600 replacement PCM with a year warranty, after FlagShip had cashed in at PayPal, at https://wranglerfix.com. I had a very educational talk with Mark and believe that he has an excellent solution to our needs (05-06 PCM). What I liked here was talking to a "Jeep Guy" not a "Large Scale" parts Refurb and sorta new supplier (?).

Let me be perfectly clear about "MY FlagShip One Experience", I received a Brain for my Sunya and it worked out of the wrapping, my jeep is running with no codes ATT, I think the jeep shifts smoother, But I sure liked talking to Mark. If anyone goes there, or anywhere for PCMs please update.

I don't know if similar Threads on this subject are here in ROF, I found the two PCM suppliers I have referenced in the Wrangler Forum. If you don't have the money to put in a Hemi &Allison transmission, and your like me and already sunk a chuck into a 05-06 you need to have a "Known Good" PCM, Mark and other have told me when they got OEM PCMs from dealer when the they started failing like crazy, they were $2.5-3 K.

I worked on electronics in the AF, go on YouTube and watch the DIY of a PCM, know why I think we need to a business that offer a better solution, buy it, drive it, save your OEM POS somewhere warm and safe, All Hail Chrysler Daimler for deserting us. WayWest thanks for input but do us a favor and share "Real Information" (Dealer Name and number). I'm opening the top and going for a ride.

They were really easy to work with and no complaints so far. Well, other than having to replace something that apparently dies for no reason with only 50k miles on it. Oh, and the price of course.
