pdblue Another vote for U-Haul. Got the hitch, wiring, and they installed it all for under $200 a few years back. Great warranty.

That's a pretty sweet deal. Thanks for sharing.

If you stop by a UHAUL location, they can wire if it is not already wired. They can also install a hitch.

pi55edoff I had the same style tube but black. I had a mopar tow package on there until I changed out the bumpers to a Shittybilt one that has the receiver in the bumper. I used a slight drop hitch on both w no interference w the tube when I had it on. I hauled wood and my boat all the time w both of them. Haven't had any issue yet. Now my tow package is just sitting around collecting dust.

You shouldn't have to. I had no problem with mine. If your bumper sticks down too far though it might be in the way of the hitch. mine has plenty of clearance below it though and it works great.

No the ones in the link would mount to the frame and be just below the bumper

coley I have a Smittybilt bumber - tire carrier with a 2" receiver. I tow a ton of pellet fuel without a problem. I've also towed a load of oak. I'm happy with it.

My Hiddem Hitch looks much stouter and it protected the rear in case of a rear ending. Too bad it got in the way of the exhaust.

Arch Stanton I have a Hidden Hitch that I had to remove because it was in the way of the Dynomax Catback exhaust tailpipe. I wanted to install an American-made bumper that was rated for towing, but have yet to find one. I might just get another hitch. Here is one offers a little more clearance for a CB exhaust: http://www.curtmfg.com/part/13408 .

TJ towing

I have 2002 TJ on 31, I am looking to tow my john boat behind my jeep, and I don't have a hitch of any sort. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should get or need? This is a picture of the back.
