Question regarding having these tsb's taken care of....
I bought my 08 kk used from a Chevy dealer. I also purchased an extended warranty. 1. Are tsb's something u need to have addressed by a jeep dealer or can I take it to wherever I want? Are they free or are they just something that tells the mechanics how to fix things?

Technical Service Bulletins, or TSBs, are recommended procedures for repairing vehicles that are issued by a vehicle manufacturer when there are several occurrences of an unanticipated problem pop up on a specific model of vehicle or and cover a whole vehicle line up when dealing with things like wire repair specifications or fluid flush intervals .
TSB's can be done by almost any Chrysler, Jeep, or Dodge dealer. Unless your vehicle is having an issue that is directly related to a TSB like the burping gas tank, them there is no reason to have your Jeep worked on.
TSB's are not recalls, so labor and parts are not covered if your vehicle is out of warranty. Even with an extended warranty, it is likely that you will have to pay the deductible to have the work preformed.
Now there are a few exceptions to this rule as not all dealers are the same and not all TSB's are the same:
1. The burping gas tank - A TSB was issued to alert dealers of the life time warranty extension on the gas tank. In this tsb, it out lines the repair procedure as well as parts needed. A recall was not issued since not all KK's have issues
2. Computer flash: I have heard of some dealers doing flashes for free during oil changes and such. Beings as they have already hooked the scan tool up to the vehicle, as a customer curiosity, they will do the work just to keep you coming back as it makes them look like good guy to you.
