Very good point. What average today's car going to get to the GC fuel tank? Well, it isn't going to be sign-board front faced '59 Chevy, it's more app to be a '05 and later wedged faced front drive car.

Chrysler, is looking at the Jeep driver as an average freeway goon. That couldn't be further from the truth, most Jeep herders are just two steps of honorary master degree in mechanical technology holders just to keep the beast on the road. Geeze, Chrysler, get out and serve your buyers more respect.

Do I hear a Hooha on that?

I'll take the new hitch and weld the receiver onto the front bumper I'm building.

Probably some Edsels out there that could be put out of their misery too

No, the Government is what is wrong with America. The people of the US have no choice. The People don't run this country anymore. Live with it. If you think one should "man up" a little, then that should mean take what you can get because this country is going to hell. I'm damn sure going to take advantage of the situation. Because nobody is going to give a rats a$$ what happens to me. Our country is ALWAYS going to be a sh*tbasket from now on. This country will not get better. Ever. But I'm pretty sure it's going to get worse. The government doesnt support me, I support them. So all in all, this new hitch is already "bought" by me.

I don't know what the big deal is if you don't want whatever they give out don't go in simple but also don't ridicule those of us who are going in because its not going to change our minds. Everyone is different and you can't keep everyone happy so live with it. I'm still going in if i get the letter.

Now it sits waiting for the official letter. Furthermore she can't drive a stick so she can't leave the house.

And now they are looking for a place to park it for 6 weeks or so,,, just waiting on the letter.

First point I'd like to make, Chrystler is getting reports of the gas tank getting pushed into the rear end and puncturing it... they should have known not to do that after the Ford pinto had the same issue. That's as far as I want to dive into that. Secondly, As an 18 year old, I think Chryster is handling this well. I may not ever even use the tow package, but I like being over prepared.

A gas tank fire is like the golden BB that pilots speak of. Given the right (or wrong) circumstances, it can happen to any automotive fuel tank.

Take the ... what was it?... 80-85ish Chevy pickups that had similar problems with side impact? One of my friends burned up in one of those. Volkswagen Beetle, same thing.

After thinking on it, I may have one put on if they offer, but only to help sell it. It will sell better with a hitch. I'm not concerned about the safety aspect of it.

I used to own a Ford Explorer(Exploder)... What was the issue there?

The ZJ will never go the way of the Pinto or Corvair. They have value other than how the public perceives their road worthiness.

Im with you.

This might be a dumb question but will letters go out to owners that bought their zj's used? Or only the original owners?

If you've updated the address with jeep. It will go to you. I imagine that they could access the registered owners through the DMV and send them that way.

Yikes, some of you folks really need to adjust your understanding of "free". Just because its free to you doesn't make it free. Someone, somewhere, in some way, is paying your bill. NOTHING is free. Quit being so friggin' selfish. Its this "gimme my freebies" attitude that is the single largest burden on America today, why our nation is crumbling around us, and is also the key reason we ended up with what is the inarguably the worst/most corrupt president and government in American history. There are simply too many hands the free government cookie jar. But hey, they're free cookies, right? Why not take em if they're free, right? Free food stamps! Free healthcare! Free welfare checks! Free rent!! Free trailer hitches! FREE FREE FREE!!! YAY for me, its all free!!

When our Founding Fathers dubbed America "The Land Of The Free", I don't think this is what they meant. Grow up and realize that your free lunch was paid for by someone else. Mighta been free to YOU, but it wasn't really free. Its a very simple concept and if you can't understand it, its only because you don't want to. As for these trailer hitches, you'll see the cost of them reflected in all sorts of things Chrysler sells and services. You'll pay for it next time you buy a more expensive Dodge, or get a more expensive repair, or even just buy a more expensive part. And what REALLY sucks is, I ain't gonna go get my "free" hitch yet I still get to pay for all the people who do. Yup, its the new liberal American way--- soak the makers and reward the takers.
