  • Technical Details

    • Fits 2007 to 2015 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.

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

                              Excellent product with factory style harness included. Only negative I found was directions weren't very clear on how to route harness. Saved hundreds over factory and the look is identical.

                                Comments about Rugged Ridge Hitch Kit:

                                I bought this to hang a Thule bike carrier off the back of my Jeep Wrangler and it works great. I liked the price and added bonus of the wiring kit. The wiring kit was surprisingly easy to install. I also liked the location of the hoops to secure the towing chains to, they seemed burlier and better positioned that some of the other inexpensive receivers. The receiver itself was a little tricky, I had improvise and unbolt the plastic bumper cover to allow for enough room to get the nuts on the bolts and get a ratchet in there, but that was just a minor inconvenience. If I had the right sized wrench and didn't have to use two ratchets it probably wouldn't have been a problem.
