This frame mounted hitch allows for lightweight towing (2,000lb towing weight, 200lb tongue weight capacity). Designed for use with Rugged Ridge rear bumpers: 11570.03, 11571.03, 11572.03 and 11573.03.
This part works and looks great. You will have to remove bumper. Look on youtube. Bolts for bumper aren't standard but they sell the correct socket at most auto shops. Takes about half hour depending on bolt rust. Super simple.

5.0Hitch Kit Rugged Ridge
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.
