Some combination lamps that are not equipped with amber side reflectors fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 108, lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment.
Consequence: Without the amber reflectors, the vehicle will be poorly illuminated, possibly resulting in a vehicle crash without warning.

1997 Jeep Wrangler SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC NHTSA Campaign #06E022000
Summary: Certain aftermarket brake hydraulic master cylinders sold as replacement brake cylinders for certain Ford, DaimlerChrysler, and Jeep passenger vehicles. These brake cylinders were sold under the brand names of Napa, raybestos, aimco, ac delco, Carquest, bendix, and wagner. Only products that were manufactured from July 27, 2005 through January 17, 2006 (date codes 0529 through 0602) are subject to this recall. When subject to very cold temperatures, an internal seal in the master cylinder could lose flexibility and may cause brake fluid to leak.
Consequence: Loss of brake fluid can lead to a decrease in brake line pressure and an increase in stopping distance, which can result in a vehicle crash.
Actions: Affinia (brake parts, Inc.) will replace the subject brake hydraulic master cylinders free of charge. The recall began on March 20, 2006. Owners can contact affina group customer service at 1-800-323-0354. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #06E022000 »
1997 Jeep Wrangler FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:DELIVERY:FUEL PUMP NHTSA Campaign #06E011000
Summary: Certain aftermarket Airtex electric fuel pumps installed for use as replacement equipment for certain 1997-2004 Jeep Wrangler; 1997-2001 Jeep Cherokee; 1997-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee; and 2000-2003 Dodge Dakota vehicles. The plastic electrical grommet connectors at the top of the fuel pump module are not compatible with automotive fuels and may degrade causing a potential leak path for fuel.
Consequence: In the presence of an ignition source, a fuel leak could result in a fire.
Actions: Airtex will notify its customers and will replace the affected fuel pumps free of charge. The recall began on January 25, 2006.

1997 Jeep Wrangler EQUIPMENT NHTSA Campaign #04E041000
Summary: Bestop aftermarket rear shell roof racks, manufactured between April 27 and May 20, 2004, designed for use with the bestop hardtop made for the 1986-1995 and 1997-2003 Jeep Wrangler. The cockpit cover may not stay latched to the roof rack because the latch bracket mispositions the rotary latch to the cockpit cover. As a result, the cockpit cover may not stay latched to the roof rack and could separate from the roof rack. This recall only pertains to aftermarket rear shell roof racks and has no relation to any original equipment installed on Jeep Wrangler vehicles by DaimlerChrysler.
Consequence: Should this occur, the cockpit could cause injury by striking persons outside the vehicle or could become a distraction or an obstacle to other drivers, possibly resulting in a vehicle crash.
Actions: Bestop will notify its customers and provide a repair kit and installation instructions free of charge. Owner notification began June 16, 2004. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact bestop customer service department at (800) 845-3567.
