    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.

    I bought the Gibson Metal Mulisha exhaust from you guys about two years ago. I had to take off the tow hitch I had on there previously cause it was to long and touched the muffler. Can you tell me if this hitch will fit on my Jeep with this exhaust? It’s a 2017 Wrangler Chief Edition.

    • We have not tested the Rugged Ridge 2 in. Receiver Hitch Kit with the Gibson Metal Mulisha exhaust, however we do not believe this may fit.

    What's different about this hitch that it can't fit the 2018 JL? I have the 4dr JL and the underbelly looks the same my old JK. Will this hitch and wiring assembly fit my JL? I see that you have the recommended hitch for the JL but what's different about it?

    • Unfortunately, this kit was not designed to work with the JL wrangler and will not fit properly due to the slight differences between the JK and JL models as well as the difference in wiring. Rugged Ridge designed this hitch and wiring to be a an easy installation on with the JK Wranglers. We do have a hitch that is designed to fit properly with the JL wranglers that you can find here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/mopar-2-receiver-kit-2018-jl.html.

      Easy to install

      When a local hitch company told me that they wanted $259 to install a new hitch on my Wrangler I went to Extreme Terrain to see that they had. The hitch kit I got for $119 was a super deal! I followed their instructions on installing the light kit and it was a breeze! then I installed the hitch itself with the supplied hardware, which was basically 4 nuts and bolts and 8 washers, it took less than an hour to install and I did not need any assistance, it was a snap! I will continue to use Extreme Terrain for all my Jeep needs.

      Great package deal!!!

      Stop looking and buy this package! Comes with the hitch, hitch cover, and plug n play wire harness. Takes 15 minutes to install and looks factory new. No need to remove your rear bumper use an open ended wrench with tape on the back to hold the nut and you'll be set to install the hitch. Once you've got it installed pop off the driver side taillight, plug in the wire harness, run the wire to your hitch and your done. Easy peasy and it looks great!!!

      Easy to install, Looks like Factory New

      I'm not the most experienced person wrenching on Jeeps, and I installed this with the wiring harness in less than 2 hours. Took me a bit to figure out how to re-install the bumper, but not bad at all. Wiring tested perfectly, and was incredibly simple to install. It only took 2 hours to install because I took my time and studied the instructions.

      Super easy install

      Easy to install, only takes basic sockets, fits tight, and looks great with the Jeep hitch plug. Not sure why these aren't standard on Jeeps, but hey, I got it on there now. If you're going to get an aftermarket hitch, GET THIS ONE. It includes the wiring harness that makes it so easy to connect trailer lights. Note: it is a 4-pin flat connection. You can install the hitch without taking the bumper off, but it is much easier to do so with the bumper removed.

      Do little

      The reason I didn’t give a five is nut was hard to get on because of room between hitch and frame. I glued nut to the washer and held in place with open end wrench. Had to loosen muffler .

      Great product, Easy Installation

      Fast delivery, very easy installation thanks to tips from Bryan. Installed by myself in about 15 minutes. Did not remove bumper, used masking tape to hold nut and washer in 3/4 in open end wrench and then installed bolts. All lined up. wiring was just as easy.
