Jeep's first recall (NHTSA 20V0124) blamed air in clutch hydraulic line overheated clutch/fires and now second recall (NHTSA 21V-028) addresses electronic reduction of torque as being the solution without perhaps addressing the real reason for the overheating of the clutch of perhaps not enough clamping force with the clutch and not enough heat capacity either in the clutch or in the flywheel due to the decreased weight in the JLs from the JKs.

What Jeep owner would want a vehicle that reduces torque and power delivery to the wheels under stress? Like swimming through sand without power to the wheels.

When will Jeep admit to cheap dual-friction clutch clamping failure and reduction of flywheel heat capacity from JK to JL, please?

I think the JK flywheels were 32lbs and my guess is that the JL flywheels are 28lbs. Does anyone know if this is correct, please?

Does anyone have updates for the previously delayed March, 2021 release from CenterForce for the KDF157077 - Dual friction clutch with the 50lb flywheel or any information that CenterForce has been successful with getting the original JLs to change gear?

Thanks.

Car manufacturers will avoid re-engineering a part or component like the plague. There's a class action suit against GM for their apparently trouble plagued 8 speed transmission.
