Looking for an accessory to carry your bike rack? Rugged Ridge has you covered with this black 2-inch receiver hitch. Not to exceed recommended vehicle towing capacity. Refer to your owner's manual for detailed information on your vehicle's towing capacity.
Difficult to get the nuts on the bolts on the 2015 Rubicon due to limited space between the receiver and the bumper. Would recommend duct taping the nuts to the receiver prior to the install, lining up the nuts to the holes. Holding them with a set of needle nose pliers works, but is difficult.
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.
Was very easy to install, didn't even need the directions, it was obvious how to install it. The picture showed nuts welded to the hitch. They were not, but was still a simple install. Wiring harness was easy too. (I did look at the directions for a quick minute)
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.
Does it come with wiring harness ?
