N47 recall

I finally brought my 2004 Grand Cherokee limited to my dealer for the inspection of my tow hitch. The tow hitch on my vehicle is a "Curt" which I installed after I had read about the danger of a fire after being rear ended and having a hitch would help prevent the fire by protecting the fuel tank. Anyway I brought it in and told them I will be waiting for it. I thought this would be a quick visit. To my surprise the dealer rep came looking for me ten minutes later and brought me to my Jeep. He stated that this hitch did not meet their safety standards and would have to install an OEM hitch with a bezel free of charge. I said fine. They even offered my old hitch back to me (I let them keep it). I am very happy with the outcome and it looks great.
Just passing along my experience with this issue.

Re: N47 recall

Great news for you! Can you post a pic of the hitch they installed? I have an '04 too that the dealer wants to install the hitch to, but they showed me one they just did and it looked awful. It would be great to see what it should look like.

Re: N47 recall

It looks exactly like the attachment below with the exception of the trailer electrical connector, it's not there. The box that the connector would attach to is also not there. I tried to post a picture of my GC but the site did not allow it. I was able to post pics in the past????

Re: N47 recall

I was told that this is a OEM tow hitch. It did not come with the part on the hitch where the electrical connection attaches to. My GCL did not originally come from the factory with a hitch which means it does not have the transmission cooler or anything else that option package may have come with. The answer to your question is "YES". But I would'nt tow anything too heavy for very long.
