They didn't have to go beyond ten years but they are. The 1999 to 2004 grand Cherokees are only getting hitches if they have an aftermarket one now. If they don't have a hitch at all they are staying that way. The 1993 to 1998 are getting mopar hitches for free if either they don't have one or if they have an aftermarket one. The Liberty's are also being treated the same way as the 1993 to 1998 Grand Cherokee's. The repair is the hitch there is not extra reinforcement beyond this. It sounds like a fair deal at least if noting else the 2 groups get a free hitch out of it.

Re: According to CNN, Chrysler is recalling 2.7M jeeps

Can definately agree about the receiver particularly on a '12. When rearended by a F*rd 150 truck, the whole front end folded around my receiver and it had to be towed away, my liftgate and flipper glass still worked properly.

I was re-ended (very lightly) years back in my 2000 JGC. The receiver die-cut a perfect 2" x 2" hole in the knucklehead's front bumper.

Had a plastic reflector in the receiver, guess that is why the F*rd bumper folded around it.
