Only gripe is I live in TX and so is 4WD so I had to pay taxes. It took 5 days to get the part which meant it was drop shipped from out of state warehouse. I could have ordered it out of state but figured I'd get it in 1-2 days by ordering it in TX.
Install was a snap, I used needle nose vice grips to get the nuts started. I would not waste the time of removing the plastic bumper like the other reviewers suggested. The wiring harness already has attachment clips for the predrilled holes in the frame, no need for wire ties. The whole process took me 30-45 minutes.
I see in the installation instructions you are required to remove the factory toe hook. It doesn't say anthing about reinstalling it after the receiver hitch is on. Is this hitch compatable with the factory toe hook after receiver installation?

I have a tera flex rear bumper for my 08 wrangler with the hook under it. Will this hitch work or will the bumper be to low? Thanks

Hello Q, the Rugged Ridge Receiver Hitch Kit part# RUG11580.52 is not compatible with the teraflex rear bumper. It drops too low unfortunately. Thank you for your question.

How difficult is it to install the hitch and more specifically the wiring? Can a reasonably mechanically inclined individual install this himself? And what is the estimated install time?
Asked by C4 from Canada on
C4, Thank you for asking. The Rugged Ridge Receiver Hitch Kit is a simple 4 bolt design installation. Once you have the tools you need, it should only take 15-30 minutes for install. Here are the install instructions if you would like to take a look http://jo.my/vwdggb
