Re: Recall / Trailer Hitch

Got the recall notice for both my 2000 and 2001 JGC. Called the 800 number and gave them both VINs. The 2001 has a factory hitch/towing package. CS person verified this with VIN so no hitch is necessary but was noted in their file. 2000 JGC did not have factory hitch but had after market one installed. Dealer stated that this hitch did not meet FCA specs for additional gas tank protection and would need to be replaced. So they took that one off and installed Mopar hitch. Now I'm waiting on $100 VISA gift card. Overall good experience.

Re: Recall / Trailer Hitch

Grabbed the N47 recall info and the N60 recall info and stopped in at the local dealer. The service coordinator I talked with was really good about the situation. He squeezed the WJ in for an inspection since I was there and it is scheduled for the hitch replacement on Friday morning. The parts to do the N60 air bag recall are not available yet. I will get pics after the install is complete.

Re: Recall / Trailer Hitch

Got the new hitch installed on Friday at the local dealer. I showed up early and waited for the entire time. The service advisor was great and the install looks good. I will get some pics of the install in the daylight tomorrow.

Re: Recall / Trailer Hitch

Gonna call tomorrow about my jeep, closest dealer is 26 miles away, don't need an inspection sticker, but want tow hitch, and a new key fob.
Would love to have a tow hitch, and will be installing the wiring after as well

Re: Recall / Trailer Hitch

They do not install the wiring, just the hitch - that is what the recall states.

Re: Recall / Trailer Hitch

Got my 100 debit card, didn't think I would get one, I did bring my jeep in, I bought new and had the class iv hitch. I recall filling out the form and sent it in, but also called their 800 #, girl said I didn't qualify since they didn't have to install the hitch, but recall notice was worded, bring it in for inspection and get the debit card.

Anyway, thank you Sergio for the 100$, wifey can use it for gas in her 2015 Overland

Re: Recall / Trailer Hitch

Does anyone know if the reason my service guy said don't tow with this hitch is because it's not factory installed, or because it's just a 'fake' hitch? If it's just that it is not equipped with factory tow package, then obviously I can start towing tomorrow. However, it its a fake hitch (if that is even a possibility) then I will heed the service guy's warning.

Thanks
