Question on installing hitch
 
Hi,
I'm looking at JGC 2012 limited V8. The tow package comes with leveling suspension which I don't want.

Question: Can I install the hitch and wiring harness separately?

Thanks a lot for input.

There's a thread on that here:

Some other members have had the dealer do it but can't remember what they were charged. Look around in the DIY section.

Many thanks. I did some research and found that dealer needs to activate the wire though the hardware installation is possible to DIY.
