MY15 Grand Cherokee Export - Tow Hitch part#

Can anyone confirm whether the US Trailer Hitch receiver ( part #82212180AC or AB) will fit a MY15 JGC Export Vechicle (Australia). Dealer here in Australia claims the Hitch Receiver for Australian models has a different part number (LA82210031). They can get me either, ironically the so called Australian version is more than $100 more expensive.

Is Jeep Australia replacing part numbers and putting a massive mark up on exactly the same part or are these Hitches genuinely not interchangeable ?

Yes it is different, Best Bars in NZ make the Aus/NZ hitch receiver. You can also get a Hayman Reese version for cheaper, although this does prevent the long range tank from being fitted and the rear recovery hook has to be removed.
Please post a new topic in one place first and wait for answers instead of the same question twice in two different parts of the forum and have people looking to answer after it has already been done elsewhere.

FYI, there is an export towing thread with lots of info here - The Towing thread
