Hitch question

I'm looking to put a class 3 hitch on my 07 rubicon. Anyone have advice on this...I would greatly appreciate it!! I just started doing some research. There seems to be a few I can put on without drilling. I talked to the service department where I bought the Jeep, they weren't too much help.
Thanks.

2X that. I ordered it with my Rubi from factory and it was unclear if it was going to be a real 2" receiver. It was 2" so all my hitches fit it. Pulls a 1500lb flatbed with no problem but you hae to be careful cause the short wheel base is prone to jacknife pretty easily on slick stuff.

I have the Rugged Ridge hitch and a trailer shop wired everything; works fine.
I even have a receiver up front too.

I have one I would sell. Took it off when I put on an aftermarket rear bumper.

I have the stock hitch. I am very satisfied with it. I pull an 8X10 utility trailer with it laden with all kinds of camping gear including a micro trailer that I use to pull my kayaks around once I get to a camp site. The kayaks go on top of the utility trailer. I'm probably near the trailer limit of 3000 lbs. When fully loaded. MPG is down to 10 and I'm usually in 5th gear through most of my travel except the flat land. 4th gear up hills occasionally. I always keep it at or under the speed limit when pulling this rig. Very satisfied. I also pull the trailer for the boy scout troop that I am an assistant scoutmaster for and that one has electric brakes. I had an electric brake control installed for this purpose. That trailer handles even better than my own. Happy shopping for your hitch.
