Just a hitch

I did not remove my bumper as some others have. I would not remove the bumper. An open end wrench and some tape are all you need for a 15 minute installation. Do not tighten the bolts all the way until all of the long bolts are in the hitch. The bolts will go in with the muffler in place with just a little wiggling. I installed the outside two bolts first and needed to loosen them to get the middle ones in. A headlamp will help since everything is black like a cave. when you are looking up at it.

receiver hitch

hard to install. limited space to get nuts on bolts. used duct tape to hold nut on wrench while threading bolt thru. careful not to cross thread!

Great Hitch looks factory on my 2014 JK!

After reading all of the reviews I decided to purchase this hitch. I removed the bumper like others said they did to install the hitch and it was well worth the time. I also purchased the factory plug and play trailer harness and it fit perfect on the hitch.

Looks good

This thing went on very easy--put it on (12-14-2012) Took about 35 minutes to install on a 2008 Jeep wrangler. Haven't used it yet--but the welds look pretty good--so don't think there will be a problem.

Works great

I took off the bumper skin and bolted the receiver to the bumper in an easy 15 minutes. I needed it to pull my boat while waiting for my custom bumpers to be delivered. Don't hesitate to get one of these as the fit and finish are excellent.

Great product

Great product for a great price. It was really easy to install and I installed the trailer wiring harness at the same time in under one hour.

Answered by from Acworth, GA on

Hello, what is the mounting-channel width? Obviously for a JK, but I want to use this for a slightly different application. Better yet, would you have a spec sheet/drawing? Thank you.
