    so if this goes through are they going to take my jeep away? or fix it to their ******* standards via tank relocation or welding in a cage of some sort?

    this is bullshit to the highest since they all passed the damn inspection when they were made. this is the government again trying to protect the shit out of me it seems while at the same time taking something from me. **** em!

    Hmm? Refuse the recall? I expected no less. I still find it ludicrous.

    There will be no recall,only a campaign.Does not mean you will get anything for free.

    Looks like we get free trailer hitches! I was thinking about getting one anyway.

    Chrysler agrees to recall of Jeeps at risk of fire | Fox News

    "Chrysler said Tuesday that dealers will inspect the vehicles and install trailer hitches to protect the gas tanks. The company said vehicles without hitches will get them, as will those with broken hitches or hitches that aren't from Chrysler."

    Still not a recall,it's listed as a campaign which is a fix as need.Basically if you have a hitch you will get nothing.Those of you trying to get another free on by removing the one you have they will be looking for evidence of one that had been installed.

    If you have a CHRYSLER hitch then you'll get nothing. If non-chrysler, broken, or non-existent, you qualify.

    But yes I agree they should look for evidence that there was one otherwise money will be wasted, since people can just remove these quickly and easily...

    I was hoping they would stand their ground and not cave in.
    The "Chicken Littles" of the world won a partial victory and they may get something for free so they are so dang happy :roflsquared::roflsquared:

    Wonder what they would do if I pulled in or Troy??:popcorn::icon_lol::icon_lol::ROFLJest::ROFLJest:

    I know when JLRockies had a OEM hitch installed with the RL bumper they wanted to know why as they said the RL bumper looked twice as beefy as any hitch they have ever seen.


    Eitherway I'm not part of the campaign anyways as my VIN is flagged so no campaigns or recalls will ever be done,well for free at least as I would have to pay for the fix.
