Looking for a receiver hitch for my 2000 TJ.

Needing to be able to pull a single axle with an ATV on it.

I installed a Reese Towpower 51145 Pro Series Class III Hitch with 2" Round Tube Receiver. I had gone round and round about replacing the rear stock bumper with a new one that had a built in receiver, but found this one on Amazon for $116. It bolts right into the stock frame locations.

I did have to make a slight modification to the exhaust pipe. It was right in the way of removing the bumper bolt and while I got it off, I had no room to install with the bumper there as the bolt was located behind the new receiver. The bracket that attached to the frame was outside the bolt location and the tailpipe was below the frame. Therefore the only location to get a wrench was inside the frame and there was not enough room. So I cut about 1 1/2" off of the tailpipe and could get a socket wrench with an extension in there to tighten the bolt.

Other than that, it was a piece of cake. Now I can use this with my Hitch carrier to take my party on the tailgate, gear to the beach and camping and tow a trailer now and then. I am glad to finally have this receiver added.

One thing I really like about this receiver is how it is really snug up against the bottom of the stock bumper. Since it is round, you barely notice it there as it seems to curve up underneath the bumper.
