2005 Jeep Wrangler RecallsTransmission May Not Hold in Park Position
On certain automatic transmissions, the cup plug that retains the park pawl anchor shaft may be improperly installed. If the shaft moves out of position, the vehicle may not be able to achieve "park" position. If this occurs and the parking brake is not applied, the vehicle may roll, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Chrysler recall number is E14.
