$87 bucks an hour, where do I sign up? Seems about right for dealer labor, although different vehicle, I had a hitch installed on my Ram a couple years ago by the dealer and bought the hitch from them as well for a total of $367.

$87/hr is cheap these days.

GMC dealer gets $109/hr and lexus gets $160.00/hr

I was quoted $800.00 for parts and labor. So I ordered my Jeep with it from factory. Same price but you get other goodies with it.

Or grab a 6-pack, do it yourself, and thank mineralsc for his awesome post in the DIY section afterwards! :-)

$195 for Labor?

How much was the hitch?

In case someone is interested they might like to know the total cost.

Hitch was $226 (bezel and hardware is included)
Plug $40
Receiver Cover $10

Dealer Install Labor $195 + Tax

Dropped it around 10:20 am today, got the call at 11:50 am that it was done and ready for pick up! invoice says 3 hours of labor at $65 though.

Drives you crazy. They have fixed hours on tasks. But you Pay Dealer Rates because you know that they know how to do things quick. And when they do it quicker. They pocket the difference. Grrrr.

Still not a bad price overall.

True, but work was flawless so didn't complain.

is it weird that I want a trailer hitch even though I have no real use for one? I don't know, it just looks plain back there without one. I mean, all of my other rigs had one, but not this.
