Rugged Ridge Hitch Kit - 11580.51

Rugged Ridge | Part Number: RUG11580.51
Part Number: RUG11580.51
  • Technical Details

    • 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 vehicles wiring.

Great Hitch

Comments about Rugged RidgeHitch Kit:

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.

Comments about Rugged RidgeHitch 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.

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

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "After a straightforward install, I hooked up my trailer and the signal lights were reversed. Signalling left caused the right trailer light to light up and signalling right caused the left tail light to light up. The trailer has always worked fine on other vehicles. Is this a problem with my installation or is it a flaw in manufacturing? Thanks"

    Hi does this hitch fit the 2015 wranglers?
