WJ Gas Tank Possible Recall

I have a 02 Overland with 85k and great condition except front seat covers that are in sad shape that I cannot find factory replacements.

My wife just informed she saw a story on Fox last week stating gas tank explosions in WJ's b\c of gas tank location. Its being looked into by the government and Chrysler is slow in responding.

We have our first baby coming in a few months and now she wants me to sell it.

Anyone have any info on this subject ? Any truth to this.

Your WJ already has a Hitch from being an overland the recall adds a hitch and we calculated out you have a better chance of winning the powerball multiple times in the same month and being struck my lighting multiple times than this happening to you.

My overland doesn't have a hitch. Towing package was an option my vehicle does not have.

Re: WJ Gas Tank Possible Recall

That's the fix if your VIN does fall into the recall. They are installing OE hitches on Grands and Libbys. The more you read about it though, the more BS it is. Our tanks are no more or less protected than any other SUV of this vintage. If you can get a free hitch out of the deal though, go for it! My Limited didn't come with one from the factory, but I added one when I bought it. Personally, there are a lot of new cars out there that are more dangerous.
