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.

    Easiest hitch installation

    I bought a 2017 Wrangler Unlimited on July 1, the Jeep I wanted didn't have a hitch... dealership wanted around $600 to add a hitch. I ordered a hitch from extreme the next week on Friday, hitch was delivered on Wednesday. It took me less than an hour to bolt up the hitch and connect the wiring harness. I didn't drop the outer bumper, it was easy enough to bolt the hitch on without removing anything other than the left taillight. TIP: use a box wrench, place a piece of masking tape across the box head of the wrench to hold the nut to make it easier when you don't want to drop the outer bumper. There's about 1 1/4" between the outer bumper and the steel bumper that the hitch bolts onto.

    It works well

    I have a 2016 JK Unlimited Hard Rock Edition. This has the factory steel bumper in the rear. Easy install but you will need to reuse the factory bolts. This is because the factory steel bumper uses the four holes for the hitch as part of the bumper mounting. (They thread into the bumper.) So basically just remove the four factory hitch bolts. (Be careful as there is a steel spacer that will come out when the bolts are removed. ) Position the hitch. Put the factory bolts back through and tighten them down. Took about 20 minutes.

    So easy a girl can do it!

    I called the shop and they never called me back, so I bought this online to have my husband install it. When it came, it looked pretty simple, so I just installed it myself. I haul my horse trailer, and my husband hauls his wave-runners. It's a great product, easy to put on, durable, looks good, and functions perfectly. The light kit is especially easy. It shows you how to open the compartment and it's just a matter of unplugging and plugging in the wires. No cutting, measuring, or fuss. It comes with plugs to secure the wire on the underside of the jeep, no drilling.

    Very Good Item

    This is exactly what it says it is. It matches up perfectly to pre-drilled holes in the bumper support and the wiring easily hooks up to the driver's side tail light.Be aware that you will have to remove the rear bumper cover to get enough room for a torque wrench. But that's not a big deal and is no fault of this product. I highly recommend this receiver hitch!

    My hitch arrived within a couple of days. Neatly packaged, no damage. All pieces and parts were accounted for. A quick read of the directions and I started the job. Easy! Fit and finish were perfect and installation was about 1 hour. It looks great and works perfect. I also got the 4 pin wiring harness as well. The directions were spot on and everything snapped right into place.

    That Was Simple

    I expected an easy installation and that's what happened. Let me say up front that I read and heard that I would need to take the bumper off. I took a look and thought I could do it with the bumper on. I didn't account for the thickness of the receiver plate. So I took the bumper off. That meant 6 extra fasteners to take out. Oh well... The instructions were clear and the installation was simple. It looks good and everything fit easily. I dinged it a bit on the fit because there was more gap between the receiver mounting plates and the frame rail than I would have expected. I used a bit of extra force with the wrenches and closed it up nice and tight. (I consider that very minor.) The wiring harness fit properly and the mounting holders were in the right place for a clean installation. If you need a receiver I wouldn't hesitate to get this one.
