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.

      Tip for installation

      By Gman

      from Idaho

      Comments about Rugged Ridge Hitch Kit:

      When you begin the install take a 1/2 inch drive 1 inch socket and put it between the metal mounting bar and the plastic cover this will allow enough room to hold the nut while you get it started you have to pry the plastic a little to get the socket in but when you remove it the plastic pops back into place I did get some double sided tape to stick the nut on so I could reach the 2 inside bolts easily total install from opening the box to complete 30 min.

            Great Value. Wiring was super easy to install. Nuts were hard to get started. (No room for your fingers)
            I wrapped my open end wrench with painters tape to hold the nut in place and then just needed a little patience!

              Easy to install. Half of what a dealership would charge and it is the same product. Wiring harness was all of 5 minute install.

                    Overall great product, the only complaint that I have is, in the picture it shows the nuts to be welded to the body of the hitch. When I opened the box I was disappointed to see that they are not. Install would be easier if they were since your only other options are to take the bumper cover off, or squeeze the nuts between the bumper and cover and try to thread the nuts on. There is not enough room to get your fingers in there so you really have to be creative.

                        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.

                        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.
