hitch question.
i know that my jeep is only rated at like 2000lbs for trailer weight, but, what bolts should use to install my new hitch. it is a Draw Tite 1-1/4 inch, 3500lb trailer weight, and 300 lb trailer weight.

what grade of bolts should i use to install this?

it has 4 bolts to hold it up.

Can you email the manufacturer that question? They should know the minimum specs for that or it should be stated in the original paperwork.

I'm a little suprised the hitch didn't come with bolts. I would also think you could go to the dealership and pick up the bolts.

i bought the hitch used off of ebay for 25 bucks. so i have no paper work. and that is a good idea on calling the manufacture.

anyone else have any suggestions?

Grade 8

^ x2. i use grade 8 on almost everything on my jeep. anything that is used to pull or tow you should always use grade 8. i use grade 8 bolts to: mount roll cage to jeep, bumpers, winch, rock sliders, seats, seat belts, etc.
