OK I just bought a 96 ZJ that doesn't have a hitch. I take it I missed the boat on this one? I entered my VIN in the Chrysler inquiry thing and it said there are no incomplete recalls.

I'll be pissed if I missed out on a free hitch.

That's just because they haven't finalized the recall yet.

Maybe im just being dense, but I'm not sure what this actually is. They are recalling current hitches and providing new ones? Mine still has a Mopar hitch, not sure if it's OEM or dealer add on, but it's rusty. I haven't tried to tow with it yet but sooner or later I will be since I have a car dolly. What is the problem that they are recalling these?

No. They are only installing hitches on vehicles that didn't come with one. Something about the hitches providing extra protection to the fuel tank in rear end impacts.

Thanks for the info. I'd say we're well into the third quarter of 2013. I'll be waiting...

Umm, the third quarter of 2013 ended September 30th. And I could use a hitch pretty soon. Guy wants to buy an inop car I have but is 1600 miles away and the only other thing I have with a hitch gets 14-15 mpg pulling a tow dolly. I figure my 5-speed Grand will get 22 loaded, maybe 25 empty on the way back.

You're on crack if you think any ZJ will get over 15 with a car on a trailer.
