      • 2 Inch Receiver Hitch Kit with Plug
      • Textured Black Steel
      • Rust-Free Finish
      • Waterproof
      • 1-Piece Welded Assembly
      • Hitch Receiver, Wiring Harness, and Hitch Plug
      • Works for 2007-2018 Wrangler JK Models


      Specs. This Receiver Hitch with Plug from Rugged Ridge is custom designed and bolts right to factory mount points on the back of the vehicle. Simliar to the OE hitch, this features a standard 2 inch square receiver. It has a tow rating of 3,500 lbs for 4-door Wranglers and 2,000 lbs for 2-door Wranglers with 2 inch openings. You will need to consult your owner's manual for details. A wire harness is included, and it's made to the original equipment specifications. It plugs right into the existing wiring harness, which prevents you from needing to make frustrating and expensive modifications to your Jeep's wiring.

      Construction. This piece is designed with a durable power coat, which sheds water and ensures a long-lasting finish that's rust and corrosion free. It's manufactured as a 1-piece welded assembly for additional strength, and was built specifically to match the towing capacity of your Jeep.

      Application. This 2 inch receiver hitch with plug fits 2007-2018 JK Wranglers.

      Fitment: 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018

        Great Buy

        Worked perfectly and easy to install. Loved the wire harness because it was plug and play no figuring out which wire goes where. Overall great buy.

        5 2016 Wrangler - Doug Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

        Very, very easy.

        I read other's nightmares bout getting the bolts and nuts aligned at the bumper so I was prepared for the worse. Instead, installation was a breeze. No problems at all and no difficulties at all. Then came the wiring harness. Turned out it was easier than the hitch. An easy plug and go. The harness was a perfect fit. They even had the clips pre-attached to the harness at each point they were to fit into the frame... and they did. Perfect!

        Looks great and easy to install!!! No time at all to install, removing bumper about 30 mins, 5 mins for hitch, and another 25 to reinstall the bumper.

        3 2016 Rubicon - Tom Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

        Installation a breeze but holes not lined up

        The installation of this was a snap. One MAJOR issue is that the holes for the lag pin that secures an attachment are not lined up which then requires some work to enable use.
