Construction. The Rugged Ridge receiver hitch with cargo rack is a steel cargo platform that measures 20 inches by 60 inches and can support up to 250 lbs. The receiver hitch itself measures 2 inches and comes with a wiring harness. All parts are powder coated to provide tough, durable protection against moisture, road grit, brake dust, and corrosive substances. The assembly weighs 39 lbs. Protected by a 5 year limited warranty, this cargo fixture is designed to fit 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler JK models.
Specs. The cargo rack and receiver hitch combination adds another option for carrying your items while traveling across country in your Jeep. The outer frame of the cargo rack is perforated at regular intervals to provide attachment points for whatever tie-downs the owner prefers (not included) to keep the cargo firmly in place.
Application. The 2 inch receiver bolts onto the tow hitch attachment points at the rear of a Jeep Wrangler. The wiring harness is threaded through this as described in the instructions. The heavy duty cargo rack then fastens into this receiver for a sturdy, reliable fit. Fitment typically requires approximately 1 hour.
Fitment: 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018

I received the hitch which didn’t contain any of the bolts, nuts or washers to connect to the vehicle.Helpful (8)

Solid Rack, no pin
Solid piece of equipment and meets my needs very well. I think it is a bit ridiculous that the pin needed to hold the rack in the receiver hitch is not included.Helpful (7)

Easy to put on...cargo rack is great
Putting on the hitch itself was very easy. The part that took longer than we would have liked was taking off and putting the bumper back on. The hitch looks great, like it was factory installed. I love that I couple purchase the cargo rack with it. It made searching for one online obsolete.Helpful (7)

Simple to install and looks good!
I didn't need to install the Receiver Kit since I already had a receiver that came as an option when I purchased my Wrangler. The directions were clear and the rack/tray was simple to assemble with a couple of open end wrenches and sockets. The only reason I didn't give the product 5 stars is that it did not come with a receiver pin so I had to go to a trailer supplier and purchase one for $4. Suggestion - add a couple of bucks to the price and supply a receiver pin.Helpful (7)

Everything but the pin
The Cargo Rack is great. The Receiver Hitch can be a little tricky in that there is very little clearance to get the nuts on. Just be patient and keep at it. Hard to believe, but the pin needed to hold the rack in the receiver hitch is not included. I wanted one that would lock, anyway.Helpful (7)

Great Piece of Gear!
This is easy to install and adds a ton of cargo space to haul different things - and it's affordable. Would recommend removing the bumper to install - goes faster and is easy to do on a 2016 model - 30 minute installation for the hitch receiver and 45 to build the rack - with the right tools. This has plenty of space even with a huge 35" spare on the back. Looking to use this while deer hunting to prevent dragging dirty gear into the jeep.Helpful (8)

Great option for extra cargo space.
Hitch was not tough to install and is quite solid. The rack was simple to put together and has survived its first road trip. I installed lights on the rack and the hitch wire kit was well designed and easy to install. Once off the Jeep, it will not take up too much space in the garage.Helpful (8)

What class does this hitch fall into?
Hi! The Rugged Ridge Receiver Hitch With Cargo Rack is a Class I. It has a 2,000 lb Tow Rating & 200 lb Tongue Rating.
hello I'm wondering if the rack could be extended out further from the hitch with some sort of extender tube so the rack is not under the spare so much
While we do not offer them, many stores that offer trailer and towing parts and supplies will typically carry receiver extensions. Keep in mind that moving the Rugged Ridge 2 in. Receiver Hitch Kit with Cargo Rack further out will reduce weight handling capacity due to the increased leverage placed on the hitch.
Will the cargo rack slide / mount directly to the factory installed hitch that came as an option with my 2017 JK OR will I have to remove that and install the hitch that comes with the cargo rack?
The Rugged Ridge 2 in. Receiver Hitch Kit will be the same size as your OEM hitch, allowing the Cargo Rack to work with either hitch.
Can the rack be bought without the receiver hitch?
Hello, unfortunately you wouldn't be able to get this Rack without the receiver hitch.
