This frame mounted hitch allows for lightweight towing (2,000lb towing weight, 200lb tongue weight capacity). Designed for use with Rugged Ridge rear bumpers: 11570.01, 11571.01
Ordered this for a 74 CJ5 and none of the bolt holes line up. Looks like they took a CJ7 or YJ hitch and just said " yup it'll fit ". I might just cut and drill this one since it's only being used for a bike rack but I would not recommend you tow anything with it.
I have a 1983 CJ-7 with bumperettes attached directly to the rear frame. The directions specify this product is designed to fit to the Rugged Ridge rear bumper 1170.01. Do I need to get a RR bumper, or can I fit this product directly to the rear frame?

Hi Bull You can use the Hitch For Rear Tube Bumper on the rear cross member without the bumper. You might be able to use the stock bumperetts as well. Thanks
