        Sturdy, gets the job done

        Product is solid and I've towed (more than mfgr recommended) loads half a dozen times without issue. It's difficult to install with the rear bumper on, but not impossible. Will take some finessing and elbow grease.

        Exactly what i expected

        Knowing that my '16 2 door doesn't have much in towing capacity, this was exactly what i needed. easy to install, fits like a glove.

        4 2018 Wrangler - BUCC

        Good product

        It was very easy to install, didn't have to follow the instructions. I did had to contact customer service for the factory torque requirements for my 2018 jk ( 80ft.-lb to 90ft.-lb ). Now it's so easy to use a bike rack and I added a brake light. Like it...

        5 2012 Wrangler - WilliamK Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

        Everything I expected!

        The install was pretty straight forward. To do it right you have to drop the plastic bumper. As far as the fit and look, it fits perfect and I like that it is subtle and simple instead of a huge frame mounted bar on a vehicle only rated for 2500 lbs of towing. I really only got it for my kayak rack but it's great for anything that the Jeep is rated to do.

        5 2018 Wrangler - EJ Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

        No brainer purchase

        Comes with a polished finish if that matters to anyone. Didn't see any problems with any welds (like a previous reviewer said). Install was easy, took about a half hour. Left the bumper on to install, it was a tight fit but it was manageable. Plus, you can't beat the price.

        3 2009 Wrangler - JeffP Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

        Smittybilt Hitch

        Easy install after taping a backing plate on my wrench to hold the nut since I couldn’t get my fingers in there (instead of loosening or removing bumper), looks good, but my only issue was the pin hole in the sleeve needed to be filed out to get locking pin to fit.
