2008 Jeep Wrangler ProblemsJeep recall on ignition switch due to short-circuit
Jeep issued a recall on the ignition switch because the switch could short-circuit in the presence of water or impurities.
Water can leak near the A-pillar, at the front edge of the driver and passenger side doors. An improved seal is available.
Loose or worn suspension and steering components can cause a wobble or shaking in the steering wheel. It may happen at a certain speed and subside as the vehicle accelerates through the range. Tire balance can contribute to this as well.

2008 Jeep Wrangler RecallsPassenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures On Deployment
The passenger frontal air bag inflator may rupture on deployment, causing metal fragments to come through the air bag and injure occupants. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator free of charge to resolve the concern.
The clockspring assembly may have become contaminated with dust and cause the air bag circuit to fail for the driver's frontal air bag. Dealers will replace the clockspring, wheel back cover and column shroud free of charge to resolve the concern.
The clockspring is a coil of wire located behind the steering wheel, it allows the steering wheel to turn and still maintain the electrical connection between the steering column and the rotating steering wheel. Certain right hand drive models are being recalled because the circuit inside the clockspring could break. This could result in illumination of the airbag warning light and/or no-deployment of the driver's front airbag in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the clockspring and add a steering wheel dust shield to correct this concern.
