Any dealer recommendations in central jersey for tow hitch install?

I've been talking to a few dealers on installing the OEM tow hitch to my 2012 Laredo. They've been quoting some pretty high numbers (in the 700's). I don't really plan on towing boats or anything, just really wanted for mountain bike hitch. Not sure if there are other alternatives. Really want the OEM hitch though (in bumper). Any dealer recommendations in central jersey?

Thanks.

Freehold jeep is 50/50 depending on what type o mood hey are in. I have gotten some great numbers and some that were crazy. If you talk to dan (if he still there) he normally hooks you up if you pay like full price for an oil change. Try it never know

If you're handy at all, there is a thread in the DIY area for doing the install yourself.

Re: Any dealer recommendations in central jersey for tow hitch install?

Try calln Steve white motors in North Carolina they give great prices. His name is josh if I remember correctly. They give pretty good deals as does the other jeep parts store who is a vendor here to. But josh normally gave me better prices, if you get the part cheaper you can just find out what it should take time wise and find out prices just for labor from the dealerships you've already called. Try Dan at freehold again after you got parts.

Re: Any dealer recommendations in central jersey for tow hitch install?

Well i decided i can save some money by buying the part myself. Just checking if this is all I need for a 2012:

Jeep Grand Cherokee Hitch Receiver for 2011-2014 Grand Cherokee - Item # 82212180AB

I know this doesn't include wiring. Just checking if the above is the package needed for installation (without wiring). Thanks.

Re: Any dealer recommendations in central jersey for tow hitch install?

That's a pretty good price, I don't know any part numbers but def buy the part somewhere else and then see what the labor will be from everyone else. don't forget and im not sure if it is included or not but you have to get a new piece for the bumper or cut it to so that the receiver looks flush.
