Sport Hitch Install

This is for @Tmugz88. He sent me a PM about it but I cannot attach pictures to the PM. So here they are. I picked up the hitch and wiring from eTrailer and did this last spring. I know I posted it up on here, but not sure where. Hope this helps man.

Thank you for the pictures Mudman , I appreciate it . I hope this won't be something I'll have to do , and I'll just have a 2017 Trailhawk with trailer tow .

I do however believe the hitch she purchased was this one.

Which to me is a fairly clean install , which is what I will be doing if we don't end up getting the Trailhawk deal done .

That would look to be the winner. Sorry if I sent the wrong link earlier...my bad. Did you find a place to give you a better trade value?

It is the end of the month coming up, so maybe some dealer will be able to make a deal that will work for you.

I went through this last month considering a Wrangler. The market is HEAVY with KLs right now and trades are ****. I was offered $16,000 for mine when KBB was over $2k more than that and sticker was $35k. These are dropping in value faster than an Audi. Which, is why I am keeping mine and will spend the money to keep it going a LONG time.

Well if the deal doesn't happen I'll be focusing on making mine more capable off road without taking away from its on road capabilities. And just use the wife's suv to tow larger items.
