Removal of rear bezel around tow hitch...

Hey guys,

The Jeep got rear ended while we were in NY for New Years. Damage is very minor, and is confined to the plastic bezel around the trailer hitch (the hitch took most of it which isn't super for the other guy LOL).

The part is very cheap ($30) and I'm wondering if anybody has removed/replaced this part before, does it just pop off?

Thanks in advance...

There are two fasteners on each side that need to be reached from the back. Might need to R&R the bumper if you can't reach from underneath. Look at the pdf for the hitch install.

Re: Removal of rear bezel around tow hitch...

Well...that was a ginormous pain in the ass LOL

I was able to do it without removing the whole bumper, I did have to remove most of the clips around the lower bumper skirt to pull it loose to get at the two clips up high on the trim piece.

Evidently Jeep was really concerned about this particular trim piece flying off the vehicle. Sheesh...
