Best place to buy trailer hitch

I ended up buying my GCD because it had almost everything I wanted EXCEPT the trailer hitch.
Anyone have any recommendation where to buy the Mopar parts online?
I understand that the dealer will have to flash the ecu to activate the wiring.
Thanks....

Re: Best place to buy trailer hitch

Shop around, lots of sites have mopar, but have different prices on different parts. So I'd never buy everything from the same site. Take shipping into account but the first link isn't a bad deal. Just make sure you order the correct part, I selected Limited but I don't think they are different across trim levels.

Re: Best place to buy trailer hitch

So now I'm curious, does your jeep have the wiring in place with the 4/7 pin connectors, or do you have to add that too?

I recommend etrailer.com I have purchased several items from them over the years including a P3 brake controller currently installed in my JGC.

The usual disclaimer applies no affiliation just happy customer.

They offer good tech assistance if you need it.

Agree with dsent. I've purchased several ball mounts and even a couple hitches from etrailer.com and have always been happy.

Re: Best place to buy trailer hitch

The problem with etrailer is that we require a trim kit to go around the cut out fender not just the hitch....
