Re: Trailer hitch installed

Curious of why you didn't factory order it with one? Do you have before and after pics (with cover and without)?

Also, can you let us know if your pedals are the racing style aluminum? Thanks!

My pedals were in a box in the rear and I had to put them on. The dealer did not know about the pedals and till we did a walk around. I have saw a couple of the jeep that don't have them or have not decided to put them on.

They all come with a aluminum racing style pedal brake and gas that snap over the stock pedals. Mine came in a small box 6x4x3 brake, gas and instructions to install.

Re: Trailer hitch installed

Count me in as a fan of the integrated hitch and cover. Would love to see before and after pics please.

Install tip on the bright pedals: the brake install is a knuckle busting PITA, save yourself some cuss words by cutting 45 degree slits in top two corners of rubber gasket on the backside to get them on more easily.
