I ordered the REESE tow bar from Amazon Reese Towpower 51195 Pro Series Class III Square Tube Receiver Hitch : Amazon.com : Automotive

Took me 20 minutes to install it. Great fitment.

Did you have to drill into the Jeep for the install?

Re: Tow hitch question

No, it uses 4 factory bolts(2 on each side). Really simple. Only issue I ran into was I had to remove my rear tow hook. If she doesn't have the tow hook add-on then it will be even quicker.

Re: Tow hitch question

I was looking under her Jeep this evening...will the hitch clear the black lower bumper plastic peice or did you have to trim the rear bumper?
