I just installed the renegade ready hitch and it works/looks great. It also doesn't affect the clearance which is huge since the aftermarket ones I've seen practically scrape the ground. Costs about 400 bucks with the wiring kit and took about 8 hours. Towing capacity rates to 2000 lbs. tows ok with 1.4 L but might have issues with 4 adult passengers and towing

I paid $1500 for my dealership to install the hitch. Definitely buy one with a tow package from the factory it's by far cheaper.

My Dealer sold me the Package for $300. The harness was $200. I didn't get it, I knew how to wire it, (pain in the butt), the best deal offered is from RENEGADE READY, they have hitch, harness, and the all important "template" $369. It's at least 6 hrs to do it.

Nice job, only thing I didn't do was pull the wheels, I had the tools to work around them.. took me 6 hrs, couldn't find any shortcuts.. next the lift kit..

I have everything I need,
-Hitch kit
-wiring harness kit
-bezel
just need to install it all.
Problem is, I don't don't really feel that confident about taking apart my NEW 2016 TH. I know me, a job that would take a pro service guy a few hours would take me all bloody weekend (and yes bloody, as in bleeding knuckles, scrapes, etc) as well as broken plastics (that bezel alone is a one shot, screw it up and I'm looking at a new shroud!).

And to think, back in the mid'80's/early90's I was trained to be a machinery technician (diesel, steam, hydraulics, welding, crap I was even a merchant sailor that was QMED & Deck Engineer!) of course now I'm elbow deep in computers and haven't wrenched on anything in years!
