Why would they? It's not a recall for damage in an accident.. it's proactive to potentially eliminate a ruptured fuel tank.

so if you already have a non-factory hitch then they will replace it with a jeep hitch... ok, we'll thats fine but give me the old one back when your done swapping it. And install a damn skid plate as well Chrysler! both fixes are needed no just a hitch. give me a break

Neither is needed.

The funny thing is they only have to do the free recall on vehicles newer than 10 years. Older than that, they will do the work but they can make you pay for it. I seriously hope they take that route.

Maybe remove the non Mopar hitch yourself? Skid plate would do little to nothing in a rear impact.

Who cares what they have to pay or give out for free. Chrysler never paid back 1.3 billion tax payer dollars for the bailout. The least they could do is give us some skids and hitches. Last time I checked the CEO's still got their bonuses.

I like my aftermarket hitch.

I'd rather have a new PCM.

THAT's what needs a recall on 96-98 models.
Until someone dies due to stalling while rounding a curve on a Houston or Dallas Freeway with a fully loaded semi on his tail at 65 Mph...I dont suppose they'll be interested in recalling the crap PCMs.

i doubt it will be even offered to the ZJ crowd.

they are only required to go back 10 years on the recall, which excludes all ZJ's, most WJ's and some liberties. They will have to offer a solution, but the solution for the older stuff does not have to be a free solution.

all over a non issue. 2.7 million jeeps, 37 reported cases. insane odds of it happening really.

This is a real pain in the rear end hearing about all of this. Chrysler should just give us all monster truck lifts and big tires so that way if someone rear ends us they would completely miss the gas tank and the axle and just pass right underneath with no problems. Unless its a zj to zj collision in which there would be catastrophic explosions causing the world to go into panic and ruin.

They're not effecting the recall where it really needs to go - the DRIVER!

I blame NHTSA. By working so had to "improve crashworthiness" in vehicles, the impetus to avoid a collision has gone phutt! So, drivers aren't trained properly anymore.
- Which increases the perceived need for safety devices in vehicles
- Which cranks up the cost of the thing
- Which screws up driver reactions
- Which makes most drivers markedly worse.
- Which causes people to think they don't need to avoid roads incidents as much.
- Which leads to an increased perception of the "need" for safety devices, ...

And the problem goes around & around...
