Fuel Pump Relay recall...how can you know it was done? Need help.

Quick question for anyone that got the Fuel pump relay recall done....how do you know it was done?
Is there an obvious way to tell? Is there an extra relay coming from the TIPM, or something you can physically see with your eyes?
I thought I saw some pictures of a new relay box Jeep technicians put in front of the TIPM as a separate box. Maybe I am wrong.
Can someone please clarify for me?
Pictured is my current TIPM...and I canít see anything was done to it. I thought the recall calls for an external fuel pump relay outside the TIPM? I donít see one in my picture below.

Thank you for the help. I really appreciate it.

Looks to me like you have an external fuel pump relay mounted right next to your TIPM. The rectangular black square thing in your pic, right next to the inner fender. It also appears you have an inline fused power wire leading from the TIPM towards that "relay"? So I would say you have the fuel pump relay recall done to your Jeep

It's the black thing to the left of the silver TIPM cover, as you're looking under the hood. (Or black thing at the bottom, the way the photo uploaded.)

You can log into the owners portal at Jeep.com and see what recalls were done and any outstanding ones. That is just a documentation thing, nothing like pictures to verify.

I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory;

The relay next to the coolant expansion bottle is the high speed fan relay the other black square in the middle of the bottom of the photo looks like the latest V62 recall relay.

The original attempt to fix this used a smaller relay, see the attached pdf

Thank you Rob...appreciate it.
I only asked because I figured it was done...but my Jeep just stalled in traffic last week only after a week after I purchased it. So I wanted to make sure there was a way to verify it.
Just because the dealership says it was done, or puts it in a carfax report, does not mean it really was done, or done correctly.

Hey Rob...just an update as of today. It stalled yet again coming off the freeway, and merging into traffic! Completely freaked me out! It was a total loss of steering and braking! This is totally unacceptable.
If this had been winter...I would have slid right into oncoming traffic!

The dealer trained technician didn't fix a thing after having it for 3 straight days, and doing drivability tests, and looking at all the wiring! Came up with nothing...and now it happened to me again today...stalled!
How is this going to be resolved?
