can I get a tow hitch installed on LTD?

Just curious. I don't have a ton of need for it, hence why I didn't opt for it when I bought. I wondered if I can have that added on if a need arose.

Just dropped mine off at the dealer to have installed. Check www.oepartsmegastore.com. Had a great price on the hitch $208. My dealer is charging $85 for install labor. Ps I am prewired. Look under your bumper to see if you have the wiring pigtail.

You sure can. Do a search there is a good thread on it with plenty of pictures

Re: an I get a tow hitch installed on LTD?

Yes, you can install a hitch receiver later (OEM - best option; or a third party unit) if you want to. The downside is that without all the other things that come with the Factory Tow option, your towing capacity will be lower than you would get if it was built that way. Also note that when the hitch is installed, you'll need to have the dealer turn on the wiring harness in the vehicle's computer so that your (required) lighting, etc., works for whatever you are towing. If you only need the hitch for things like bike racks, then the wiring isn't important.

Re: an I get a tow hitch installed on LTD?

I went aftermarket with mine, didn't want to cut the bumper. Took all of about 2 minutes to install. Easiest hitch I ever did. I like the fact that the aftermarket hitch was a little lower than the factory one for my use since mainly I use it to hold a step for my dog. My Jeep was also prewired but I needed the plug (Part #56055632AC, and made my own bracket to hold it) then I also had to get the dealer to activate the wiring for $30.

I got mine off hitchanything.com I believe it is the Curt hitch. I'll double check tonight.

How much does it cost for a dealer to add the OEM hitch? I was quoted $1000 CAD parts + labour.
