Installed a MOPAR trailer hitch. The most time consuming part was cutting the holes in the bumper cover. Glad I didn't pay the dealer $400 to do it!

It's plug and play...harness to hitch plugs into connector tied up behind the bumper. From there, you just have to have the dealer flash the computer to turn the harness on.

JIM FTW!

Good to know. I want a recovery point on the rig and I can't have any on the front bc of the brush guard.

Oh, hello Mr. New Rola roof rack!

I went for this one bc I wanted more streamline and I hated the Mopar one where the ends stuck out.

Love those black rails, did you have them powdercoated? I put the functional rails on my High Altitude, but they're the only bit of silver on the car. I'd love to have this done.

You sir are correct.

Put about 5 coats on about 1.5 years ago and hasn't faded or or ripped one bit. I was looking into getting them wrapped (still have to do the window trim) but with the rack on, its likely it would tear. With dip, I could always just respray it.

Plasti-dipped them. Has held up perfectly for about 1.5 years.

Ask and ye shall receive.

I have a 2013 with the factory rails, so you might want to double check fitment.

With tax and shipping it was around $207. An efing steal
