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

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.Helpful (1)

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!Helpful (1)

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.Helpful (1)
Will this fit my 2018 JK 4DR Oscar Mike? I saw a similar question but not sure what the answer meant by if the bumper is set up to receive a hitch. Thanks!
This will fit your Jeep yes.
will this fit on the 2016 backcountry edition? they have a fairly unique bumper....
This will work with the bumper on the Backcountry edition. This will be the same bumper that was used on the Modern Warfare III edition.
What is the maximum tongue weight of this?
This hitch has a maximum tongue weight of 350 lbs.
Will this kit fit a 2018 JK 2 door Freedom edition factory steel bumper without modification to the bumper? Thanks
Yes, as long as the bumper is ready to accept a tow hitch, it will fit with the with the Freedom Steel bumper.
I want a hitch to pull a 5x10 trailer with my 4 wheeler on it is the 350# tong wight going to be enough.
This was built specifically to match the towing capacity of your Jeep. If your Jeep is already able to tow this amount, then this will work for you.
Please take a look at this installation guide for help with this. https://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-hitch-kit-plug-jk-1158052-cust-install-J21068.html
This is able to work the the 75th anniversary bumper.
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.
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.
The Rugged Ridge 2 in. Receiver Hitch Kit w/ Wiring Harness & Jeep Logo Hitch Plug is only intended for 2007-18 model JK wranglers, not the new JL models. The hitch we offer for the JL can be found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/mopar-2-receiver-kit-2018-jl.html.
This hitch will fit the stock 2016 Backcountry edition steel bumper and some aftermarket rear bumpers with an OE style hitch cutout.
Yes, the Rugged Ridge 2 in. Receiver Hitch Kit w/ Wiring Harness & Jeep Logo Hitch Plug is made very similar to the OE hitch and will be compatible with your Back country edition bumpers.
The Rugged Ridge 2 in. Receiver Hitch Kit is not made in the USA, but is made in China.
Yes, as long as the bumper is ready to accept a tow hitch, which the Rubicon bumper is, you will be able to install this hitch.
