Trailer Hitch Install with Color Match Bezel

Today I got a trailer hitch installed on my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland. Before I had them install it, I had them custom paint the black bezel that surrounds the trailer hitch.

I think it turned out incredible and only cost $85 to do it. I think this is how these vehicles should come straight from the factory. Makes it look a lot cleaner and flows with the vehicle more.

Re: Trailer Hitch Install with Color Match Bezel

That looks pretty good! I wish they made a hitch cover like the ones that are available for the SRTs for our style...

Looks good, nice job! I'm still a fan of the black bezel though.

Re: Color match bezel around trailer hitch

I like it! Might have to look into that in the future. Did the dealer do it?

Re: Color match bezel around trailer hitch

Their paint guy did. Before they installed it they painted it. Not sure what the process would be if it's already attached to the car. I guess either tape it off and spray or take it off for paint

Re: Color match bezel around trailer hitch

That is cool and I'm shocked the dealer did that for you. Hopefully they did it correctly and the paint won't peel off.

Fingers crossed. I have a good relationship with the dealership and the service advisor, so hopefully if something does go wrong they will take care of it...hopefully

Re: Trailer Hitch Install with Color Match Bezel

Looks nice, but I would have painted it for $20.

$750 for parts and labor.

Before everyone blows up and says "you paid too much! I could do it for $40 in my driveway"! I live in an apartment building and my company paid for it
