    I don't know that it's normal, but mine is also cracked. Yours is a little worse than mine though. As you said, I don't think it's a big deal as it's just a plastic cover.

    Oh, mine is also an 08

    well mine SEEM to be cracked but way less than in the pics.

    honestly... i "hate" these new hooks, now on my 95gtx.... that is a hook.... just a U bolt....
    its easily accessible, and i can hook the hook up faster, and i can hook up 2 or 3 even compared to 1 and barely the safety chain.
    (reason for hooking up 2 hooks was for a design i was wanting to do on my trailer but later abandoned it).

    My loop on my 99 xpl has been cracked since its first season. I was initially stress out over it, but I wasn't about to pull the boat apart either. 13 years later, it's still cracked. I think it's stainless on the inside. Even though it is cracked, it's as strong as ever. I think you will be fine. Adds character!!!
