Looks awesome. I like the Central Chrysler Jeep sticker in your first post.

Re: Today is mod day!!!

4th...
Thanks a bunch for the write-up and pics. I was about to spend $300 on the factory hitch and wiring kit (and maybe another $300 in labor if I didn't feel like wiring to the front of the car). The hidden hitch solution is much more afforable as I don't need a class-4 hitch.

Question, was the wiring fairly straight forward (pop out the tail lights and run the wiring down through the bumper)? Also, how far does the hitch stick out without the ball mount?

Thanks again!

Thanks for the tip, I followed suit. I installed Draw-Tite hitch and a 2 way connector which has 7 and 4 sockets in one. Hitch was very easy to install. Also picked up Jeep hitch cover. Looks great and receiver does not stick out past the bumper at all. I will post some pictures.

Yup - http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php?t=23385

BTW- The hidden Hitch and Draw Tite are the exactly the same. Just a different label.

Thanks. btw I got a quote of $450 for the OEM install from the dealer. Now the only question is (finances aside) - what looks better. The OEM or aftermarket. Also i assume there are no clearance issues by having it lower than the stock hitch.

Re: Today is mod day!!!

I think the rear departure angle might lose an inch, but it adds great protection from ripping off your bumper
