Simply doing the TSB update is not sufficient for most of these owners EAK, unless they purchased a relatively new Cherokee. You should read up on some of the issues with the 2014 model and you will understand better.
The person you've quoted left the post nearly a year an a half ago and is one of the originating members of this forum so has a 2014. But by all means, try and tell him to do more research I'll sit back and see how far that gets you.

Check your sources buddy. There is a known issue with a wiring harness crimp on limited production runs of the ZF-9 that obviously isn't fixed with software. The reported failures with the NHTSA is literally in the hundreds, not hundreds of thousands. But yes, there are literally hundreds of thousands of Cherokees on the road. The Cherokee TH is a little monster and there are plenty of us 2014ers cruising around without issues
