nothing other than a hitch NEEDS to be installed by the dealer. AFAIK HD cooling just added an external trans cooler. just because the dealer installed the class 3/4 hitch doesnt mean they're holding the smoking gun if you hook up a big trailer and fry your trans.

I heard they're making devices on new cars so they can avoid crashes. Will those devices also cause an older car (without the device) from crashing into them? I'm starting to miss the olden days when people needed to PAY ATTENTION while driving. However, I see that it could be convenient having a car that allows you to text, read, sleep, and go to the bathroom while driving.

I suppose they could weld a cover over the end of the receiver and call it a "bumper enhancement". That way they reduce their liability. Wouldn't that be a nice inconvenience.

See my previous comment.

The thought occurs: on most vehicles with front-mounted engines, isn't the fuel tank usually behind the rear axle (RWD/4WD) or axle beam (FWD) vehicles?

How incredibly asinine.

I heard of a case where a car crashed through the "guard rails" along an embankment. They sued and won because the rails didn't "guard" them from going over the edge. The highway authority then changed the name to "Guide Rails" and said the intent was to mark the edge of the cliff and not necessarily prevent a car from going over it. A "trailer hitch" might imply it's strong enough to tow a fully loaded freight train. They can say "5,000 lbs max", but some goofball is bound to sue the manufacturer because the hitch didn't have a weight sensor and alarm. I wonder what the government would say if Chrysler decided to just give every recalled Jeep a fire extinguisher.

They probably don't know a manual wasn't offered in a WJ.

He's an angel dressed in oilskins; he's a saint in the "Sou'wester,"
He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.

Hey guys, a bit of a practical question regarding this recall...

So Chrysler is supposed to call us ZJ owners in by mail, as far as I was told by the stealership.

Obviously, most of us aren't original owners, it's rather unrealistic to expect that with a 15-20 year old vehicle.

How the heck are they going to do that if they don't have our data? Through state (and provintial in Canada) car registration offices? Like the SAAQ in Quebec? I can't see any other way of them finding the current owners and informing them.

^^^ If you request your Jeep's build sheet from Chrysler, providing VIN, contact info, purchase date etc, they will update their database with your current info as the current owner.

Someone correct this info if I'm mistaken please.
