I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com and this is my review of the RedRock 4x4 Hitch fitting on 1987-2006 Wranglers. This will only fit with an aftermarket tubular bumper and will not fit in conjunction with the factory rear bumper. This is for anyone who wants to be able to tow a light trailer and have an additional recovery point on their Jeep. This has a 2,000 pound towing capacity with a 200-pound ton weight capacity, which are really limits put in place by the vehicle and not by the hitch. This is actually pretty beefy and while it's a little bit more expensive than some of the others, I would imagine that's because this is a really well-built piece.This hitch is built out of plate and tube steel and provides you with a two-inch receiver. The whole thing is designed to be completely bolt-on and it's covered in this textured black powder coated finish, so it's going to resist rust and corrosion and hold up really well. Unfortunately, as I mentioned, you will have to run an aftermarket tubular bumper in order to install this hitch on your Jeep, and this will not work with the factory bumper. Because this is designed to work on both TJs and YJs, there are a couple of mounting holes that you may not use depending on which generation you're installing this on.This is designed to bolt onto the cross member and doesn't have any specific frame tie-ins. I've seen a lot of bumpers with two-inch receivers built into them that are not tow-rated that seem, in my opinion, to attach to the Jeep much more securely than this does. However, as long as you're staying under the 2,000-pound towing weight capacity, this will be absolutely fine.As I said, this is designed to be completely bolt-on and you won't have to drill any holes into your Jeep or in the hitch itself, and this comes with all the hardware that you need to get it installed. The installation process will vary a little bit depending on which tubular bumper you have on your Jeep. However, it's going to start with removing that bumper, bolting the hitch into place, and then reinstalling your rear tubular bumper. The whole process should take about two hours, and you'll need some traditional hand tools to get the job done.This hitch is a little bit more expensive than some of the other ones on the market, but it is really well built. It has a bunch of gussets, the welds look strong, the powder coat is solid, and in my opinion, it's probably worth a couple extra dollars over some of those cheaper hitches that are out there. Your YJ or TJ is never going to be a dedicated tow-pig. It does have a limited tow weight capacity and ton weight capacity. However, if you're looking to move around a light landscaping trailer or you want an additional recovery point on your Jeep, a hitch like this is a nice option if you're running an aftermarket tubular bumper.So that's my review of the RedRock 4x4 Hitch for the 1987-2006 Wranglers that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.
Receiver Hitch. For some unknown reason Jeep did not include a Rear Receiver Hitch as standard equipment on their YJ and TJ Wrangler's, but RedRock 4x4 has tubular bumper owners covered with their versatile 2" receiver hitch that installs exactly where the factory one should be.
Extra Towing Capacity. This RedRock 4x4 YJ, TJ receiver hitch is designed to tow up to 2000 lbs and has a maximum tongue weight rating of 200 lbs.
Heavy Duty Construction. Manufactured from heavy duty steel plate and 2" square tubing, this RedRock 4x4 Rear Receiver Hitch is completed in a textured black powder coat finish for aggressive good looks and long lasting corrosion resistance.
Easy, Bolt-on Installation. The RedRock 4x4 rear bumper hitch is engineered to be a direct bolt-on upgrade using just basic hand tools, so there is no drilling or cutting required for a clean straight forward installation. Its direct fit provides clearance for the installation of most after market styled tubular bumpers.
Application. The RedRock 4x4 Rear Receiver Hitch is designed to fit all 1987 to 2006 YJ and TJ Jeep Wranglers, with an after market tubular rear bumper installed.
Note: Will not work in conjunction with factory bumper, tubular style bumper required for full installation.
Dave D, 2007 Jeep Wrangler JKUMerchandising I have owned YJ’s and TJ’s in the past. After not owning one for several years I got the bug again and decided to go buy one. On a whim I saw this one and went to the dealership on the same day while my wife was at work and came home with it. She was a little bit surprised (mad) to see the Jeep in t...
