Check Vehicle Fit

The CURT class 3 trailer hitch is the most common type of trailer hitch installed on full-size pickup trucks and SUVs. It is also found on full-size cars, crossover SUVs, minivans and mid-size trucks. That is because the class 3 packs the punch of a heavyweight hitch while still staying light on its feet. This CURT class 3 hitch offers a gross trailer weight capacity of 4,000 lbs. and a comparable tongue weight capacity of 400 lbs. It is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Jeep Wrangler (including Rubicon and with tube bumper) (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at curtmfg.com). It features a square tube frame and comes with all necessary hardware for a complete installation.The 2" x 2" receiver tube opening of this class 3 hitch is able to accept a hitch-mounted accessory, such as a bike rack or cargo carrier, or a ball mount to tow most standard size trailers, including utility trailers, single-horse livestock trailers, boat trailers and large campers (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component).CURT class 3 trailer hitches are engineered to be strong and capable, having a quality steel frame and a solid finish. They are put through strenuous testing before being deemed ready for market and come with two coatings -- a liquid Bonderite coating and a powder coat in high-gloss black -- that cure together to form a strong resistance against rust, scratching, UV damage and other wear. Our hitches are our pride, and as such, we back them up with a limited lifetime warranty and a one-year finish warranty.

          Comments about Curt Class 3 Trailer Hitch:

          The Curt Class III hitsh was easy to install and was put on in less than an hour. The finish of this product is incredible and rests nicely under the bumper and if you go to their website you will find out that they are one of the few companies that REALLY work on keeping their products from rusting. Its strong and affordable. The provided "fishing" tool made it very easy and fairly foolproof once I figured it out. Note - if you have a rear tow hook, and the Jeep has seen some rust/salty conditions, make sure you saturate the nut inside the frame support, as it will bend and spin if it has been weakened, making it near impossible to get out with out cutting the bolt head off; which has nothing to do with the quality of the hitch, just the design of the Wrangler rear tow hook.

          The diagram about which hole to pass the fishwire through was wrong for my '98 Jeep Wrangler. With a little thought about the options I was successful. You too will be successful.
