Re: Today is mod day!!!

That's not the Jeep hitch kit, is it? I ask because that's not where the it's mounts from the factory.

Re: Today is mod day!!!

I purchased the "hidden hitch" brand, bolted in the factory location and saved myself $450 buck in labor and parts! I also like the fact I have rear bumper protection during and rear decent events.

You get more then just a hitch with factory tow package.

Understood. Although the factory hitch was $250 + labor $ 350 (total) $600

The hidden hitch was $135 delivered from etrailer, install time was less than 10 minutes.

Looks great 4th Cherokee.

I have a favor to ask of you. Would you be able to post a couple more pics of the hitch installed on your WK2? (straight behind)
I need to install one and have been leaning toward the factory option, but leery of removing the rear bumper cover and cutting the hole out.

Your hidden hitch looks really clean. Did you do the wiring also?

Thanks in advance!

Exactly! The factory hitch seamed heavy in the labor department! I also purchased the trailer wiring harness from etrailer ($15), plug and play 15 mintute install. The hidden hitch also has powder coated finish vrs the factory wet paint.
