At least 87,000 Jeep Wranglers in the US. And Canada is being recall because of the possibility of risk of fires. This is according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

There are already 14 complaints of fires cause on the 2010 Wranglers, but no claims of injuries or fatalities connected to the problem.

The problem is said to be in the Skid plate that that protects the transmission and the catalytic converter, the plate makes it possible for debris to collect and press up against the SUV’s catalytic converter.  Because of the high heat that can lead to a fire.
