Non-SRT hitch cover

Hello everyone!

I just joined this site recently as I took delivery of my new-to-me 2012 Mineral Gray Laredo X last weekend

I have been looking around for a bit now, and I am already seeing way too many things I can/want to modify to the Jeep LOL

My Jeep came with the towing package, which is convenient, but I will be using it only few times a year. I noticed the SRT models have a cover that hides the whole package (hitch receiver, plugs,...). Is anyone aware of a similar cover available (aftermarket maybe) for the non-SRT models?

Thanks!

Sonny

If it came with the tow package, the hitch sticks out a bit. I don't think you are going to get a cover on that.

To the best of my knowledge, there is no cover available. While the Summit comes with a (removable) cover from the factory, like the SRT, it has different front and rear fascia than the other models, including your Laredo.

I saw that too, which makes it almost impossible to make something myself. Thought about looking for a damaged bumper without hitch cutout and using the center section as a cover, but that won't work...

Just looked at some photos online and you are correct, the 2014 Summit has a cover, but indeed the whole bumper is different and will not line up with the fender trim
