another recall to add to the list for this car.

the recalled jeeps were built between 8/25/2014-6/25/2016

"The trailer-hitch assembly may have been attached with only a single fastener per side, not three per side as required," the NHTSA said in its recall summary. "Without the proper number of fasteners, the trailer-hitch assembly may separate from the vehicle, and any towed vehicle may no longer be properly connected, increasing the risk of a crash."

Turns out my recalled TH hitch had all the bolts, they were just missing some washers. Got the washers installed and the recall resolved today. Here's a photo of the affected bolts. I took the photo of the ones from the passenger side by the muffler. The affected bolts are the ones noted by the arrows.
