  • Technical Details

    • Fits 2007 to 2015 JK Wrangler, Rubicon and Unlimited
    • 2 and 4-door models
    • Hitch and plug in wiring harness
    • Bolts directly to factory mounting points on the rear of the vehicle
    • Durable black powder coat
    • Includes cutout for factory wiring harness mounting
    • One-piece welded assembly for added strength

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.

            Great value for a good product; simple to understand instructions - however not so easy to install - very limited space between bolts and back bumper - be prepared to spend more time than stated in other reviews.

              Comments about Rugged Ridge Hitch Kit:

              This is a great little kit that was really easy to install and is pretty good quality. The wiring kit comes with clips to attach to predrilled holes on the frame (at least on my '11 JK it did) which was a nice touch, no need to zip tie anything. The trailer side connector has a nice little clip spot on the hitch to keep it in place.

              The only complaint I had is that I didn't have enough space between the frame and the bumper to get the nuts in place on the bolts, which required me to remove the bumper. I was fully expecting to be required to remove the bumper any ways, it just took me a little longer.

                  Hi Todd,
                  Yes, the nuts are welded in place on this receiver, and the install is very straight forward on this
                  kit.
                  Thanks for the inquiry.

                  Hello Mr T,
                  The Rugged Ridge Hitch Kit mounts to the cross-member in the center of the Jeep, so you don't have to remove the tow hooks. And it will fit a 2010 Jeep Wrangler.

              • Q:

                Does the wiring harness work the turn signals on a trailer?

                  Nick,
                  The wiring harness plugs into the Jeep wiring and will control the turn signals on your trailer, if it is equipped with them. The wiring is very easy to install, but let us know if you have any trouble and we can help you out.
