Hitch Receiver - Flip Cover?
 
I just had the OEM hitch installed on my WK2.

Seems like 100% of the pictures I have seen of this install showed a flip-type cover. I had assumed this was just part of the hitch kit. When I picked-up the Jeep, I was just a bit disappointed to see the NAKED hitch :(

I poked around and found a couple options, but they're a bit too bold for my taste.

Looking for the black-on-black variety. Anyone know any sources for this type?

I think I saw some in Walmart the other day, generic 2 inch rubber cover.

You can probably get it from the dealer. The flip cover only comes with WK2s that had the hitch installed at the factory as part of the towing package.

That's how I got mine. It is black-on-black. Looks good.

Or you could find one looking for a new home on another WK2 that had the factory hitch. ;)

When the JGC comes from the factory, the hitch cover is in a baggy in the spare tire compartment along with some other loose ends. The dealers usually install them when the car is prepped for delivery (sometimes they are just left in the car for the customer to install). ... see sticky finger suggestion above for the reason... :)

Specifically, the wiring harness for installing towing brakes and the silly string-bikini "cargo net."
