Weighing my options in terms of stock retrofit vs aftermarket trailer hitch. Anybody have some pics on a WJ limited of an aftermarket install?
Thanks

Re: Pic Request - WJ Limited w/ aftermarket tow hitch

I plan to buy a trailer hitch for my WJ in a month and this is what I liked so far:

I have read really good reviews about them.Moreover,you can choose between various colors to match your vehicle

Re: Pic Request - WJ Limited w/ aftermarket tow hitch

I used to have one on my XJ...Curt makes quality stuff. You can forget the 30minute install time though. If there is even a spec of rust under there, you can plan on double that at least. Start spraying your bolts now with some PB Blaster. It'll make life a lot easier when you actually go to do the job.

I installed an OEM hitch on mine...sorry no pics of a Curt.

Re: Pic Request - WJ Limited w/ aftermarket tow hitch

not sure if this helps, but here are a couple pics of an aftermarket Curt hitch on my 2011 Liberty. My only comment is that it would be nice to have the "plug in's" on the hitch rather than the wiring hanging the way mine is..

(let's try this again..)

Re: Pic Request - WJ Limited w/ aftermarket tow hitch

Just put a hitch on my 01 Lorado. Went to the wrecking yard and got a OEM unit and electrical wiring off an 03. Purchased the the bezel and the rest of the parts from the stealership. Went to the local hardware shop for the attaching hardware. Took about 2 hours total to pull the bumper cover off cut out the cover using a template. Then reatached the bumper cover. Not a hard job and a lot cheaper then having someone else do it.
good luck!
