Solid Product

Easy to install. I did have to loosen up the rear bumper in order to get the washers and nuts on but it was easy. Took 30 mins. I even bought the Smittybilt trailer harness and it was a breeze. I highly recommend these products.

Nice Product

I partially removed the bumper for an easier install. All holes lined up well. Install all bolts before tightening down.

Excellent Quality Hitch for the Price

This unit would be easier to install if the Nuts were welded on as shown in the pictures.

Just what I expected.

The illustrations on the direction sheet should have been easier to see. However, since the installation was easy it didn't make any difference.

Smittybilt did well

Bought this hitch for my Jeep & it's great. Reasonably priced, looks good & easy to install. I'm a woman and did it myself.

Easy Install!

Easiest install after bumper cover is removed - comes off in 6 bolts - and the wiring harness couldn't be easier that came with this, it plugged and routed perfectly, and the plastic push-tabs matched up to the factory holes to snug it right up. Haven't towed my boat with it yet but I'm sure it will be fine, cargo tray and bike rack are great so far.

Great hitch

I marked this easy to install and difficult to install. The reason I put both was about expectations. I had to remove the back bumper to install this hitch and I didn't think I would have to do that. The directions don't indicate you need to, but for me, I had to. Now, with that said, it was easy to remove the bumper and install the hitch, but I wasted a lot of time trying to do it without removing the bumper. The product itself is great and doing exactly what I wanted.

great produvt

this is a great product. it was easy to install on my 2012 wrangler unlimited(20 minutes). Tight fit between the bumper and the hitch, but definitely do-able. BUY IT.
