What tool did you use to Install the hitch ?
Lastly what was your final cost ?
Thanks, I appreciate any help I can get I plan on adding the hitch, tow hooks and overland grill.
The chrome hooks are available, but are ridiculously expensive.
It was pretty straight forward to install, if you change your own oil and can use a wrench you will be fine on the tow hooks. The hitch was a little tougher, just because you had to take off the whole bumper, not just the lower fascia. Make sure you have somewhere to put it and be able to work on it where you wont scratch the paint and will give you a sturdy area to cut. I used a dremel tool and a box cutter to cut out the hole and tabs for the hitch. Other than that all you need are socket wrenches and a torque wrench. The reinstall of the rear bumper needs a plastic rivet gun, but you can find that at harbor freight or any tool place if you don't have one.
I got all my parts from Mopar Jeep Accessories & Parts Store at JustForJeeps.com
, you can browse there and find everything you need (specifically here 2011 - 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Carriers and Cargo Hauling Accessories
) The parts from the 20111-13 are the same as we would use. They also have a discount code for jeepgarage members.
I got the hitch cover separately, as well as the connector for the hitch wiring harness (my car was prewired from the factory, just needed the connector) both of these are also available from the same site.
