I had my Jeep dealership install this on my 2004 Rubicon. The dealership told me they were concerned that although it installed properly the receiver tilted up about 10° or more from being level with the vehicle. They thought this may be a problem. It is and I can not get a trailer off once hitched and the trailer digs into the bottom of the ball. I have the same experience with three different trailers which all worked fine with my light duty (but level) Mopar hitch. After explaining the problem to FWD with the MFG rep on the line, they told me to shim the attachment to the frame by a 1/2" or so to try to level out thier hitch to the frame.
This hitch looks great, fits perfectly on my '06 Wrangler TJ and installed in under a half hour. Have a good socket handy to break the bumper bolts loose and something to support the hitch during the install. Also lube the welded in nuts in the frame rail prior to installing the new bolts. Will help in case you ever need to remove the hitch.
I have a TJ 2000 jeep sahara stock bumper.Does this hitch comes with all screws and all hardware so I can install?Thanks
