Trailer Hitch?

Gonna install a trailer hitch on my new 2010 Sport. Any advice? And I should have said I'm gonna have it done. Whats a reasonable price and any other advice. Not going to pull a real heavy load. Just a small single axle trailer with my Harley and other lightweight items.

If you spend more than $200 for the hitch, install, and all related wiring, you spent too much.
I have a Rugged Ridge hitch; took about 15 minutes to bolt on. Prices vary from site to site but I think you can get them for about $60.

Do it yourself. The holes are already in the frame, just line up the hitch, slip the bolts in and tighten them. If you don't want to do the wiring yourself, have someone do just that for you and save the money.

I bought a Hidden Hitch for our '09 for about $100. Installation is dead simple, 15 minutes start to finish. Unless you are just wrench-phobic, you can do it yourself. Another $20-$40 for the wiring kit and again real easy to install - full instructions provided.

What are you going to tow with it ???

Don't forget to look into Adventure Trailers "lock-& Roll" hitch and their new "Multi-Axis Coupler"

These exceed the restrictions of the old "ball" hitch and allow real off-road use of your towed "unit"
