Recall years

Is my 99 Grand Cherokee Laredo included in the fire recall? Have they determined a fix. Wouldn't a. Skid plate solve the problem?

There is a bigger chance of your WJ buring in long dry grass from hot cat than blowing up from being rear ended.

So should the recall give us all a 4 to 6" lift or a mention in owners manual

There is no recall there will never be as there are too many vehicles from nearly all the manufacturers that this will impact.
When you think about it you'll realise all these vehicles pass all the requirement at the time. Newer regulations only applies to newer vehicles.

If the tank position is a hugh worry do a tank tuck and gain extra off road clearance and better departure angle.

Mods! Quick! Lock the topic! We can't have people talking publicly about this. I mean, where would it end?
Thank god they locked the last topic *just* before a reasonable solution was confirmed.

Such hostility in this thread

OP: no, your jeep is not included in the fire recall. It is only for 93-98 ZJs and 02-07 KJs. WJs are not included.

It just got the notice in the mail. All worried jeep owners will be getting a free smart car replacement for there jeep. If you hurry and act now, you can upgrade from 10 inch wheels to 11 inch wheels.

To be honest it was let run for far too long. By and large I though this forum was populated mainly by sensible folk.....that thread proved otherwise.......or maybe they all got together for an idiots convention on that thread! Ha ha.

You're referencing to "us" as idiots because we were pursuing some avenues to make these vehicles somewhat safer and achieve some peace of mind.

And thereby implying intellectual superiority over us BY DEFENDING THIS ??:

It's not very nice to go around calling people idiots now is it.

This one dude:

Original poster asked for positive feedback and no mocking.

Usual anti-recall crowd replied negatively, mocked accordingly.

I accept there's no cause for panic with this issue, but I'm not sure why anybody is being mocked for discussing how to make their Jeep safer

What is with all this talk? Do you know how many WJ's actually caught fire when rear ended and a ruptured fuel tank was the cause? If you want the world to be completely safe then stay inside. WJ's are safe vehicles. It's amazing how easy it is to put things in people's head and make them go crazy with fear. Same thing happened with the Ford Pinto. The media made it out to seem that the rear bumper cover was made of flint. And again, it was proven that they met all standards for the time they were made and even safer than some other cars on the road, same as the WJ today.
