  • Technical Details

    • Fits 2007 to 2016 Jeep JK Wrangler, Rubicon and Unlimited
    • 2 and 4-door models
    • Hitch and plug in wiring harness

Custom design bolts directly to factory mounting points on the rear of the vehicle, very similar design to the OE Receiver Hitch. Durable powder coat design sheds water and provides a long lasting rust free finish. Designed as a one-piece welded assembly for added strength, we built our hitch receiver to match the towing capacity of your Jeep: 3,500-lb tow rating, 350-lb tongue weight rating with weight distributing equipment; otherwise 2000- lb tow rating, 200-lb tongue weight rating, 2" opening. The included wire harness is made to the original equipment specifications and plugs into the existing wiring harness, keeping you from having to make frustrating and costly modifications to the vehicle's wiring.

      Comments about Rugged Ridge Hitch Kit:

      I was impressed with the weight of the hitch. Feels strong and was easy to install both the hitch and harness. Looks good too. Didn't want a huge item on the back of the jeep.

      The only thing that would make the install easier is if the locknuts and washers were welded onto the backside. It would make the install flawless.

                          You need to either have small hands, get creative with vice grips, or remove the bumper cover to install this on a JK.
