Chrysler Recalling Jeep Wranglers

Chrysler is recalling some 68,000 Jeep Wranglers from model year 2010 to fix a skid plate problem that can lead to fires.
The skid plate in Wranglers with automatic transmissions trap debris near the catalytic converter, which heats the debris to temperatures high enough to pose a risk for igniting into flames.
Chrysler acknowledged to federal regulators that it has received reports of 14 such fires.
Chrysler will ask Wrangler owners to return their Wranglers to Jeep dealers to have the skid plates replaced with skid bars, which won't trap debris.
