Just wanted to let people know that the aftermarket hitch from Curt does fit on ok. It fits a bit lower than the factory one that comes through the bumper section. (I have a Sport model). I only use it to put my double bike carrier from Thule and it raises the bikes way up so that the part of the rack that holds them will never hit. Receiver would only drag if going over a very sharp incline. Would not pull my Kayak trailer because it would be too low to feel safe. Use my 1989 Wrangler for that. Jeeps are fun!

The curt hitch only fits the FWD model. IT WOULD NOT FIT MY 4X4. Dealer had to return it and get a draw tite which fits fine.

Where did you get the hitch?
there's a website renegadeready.com they market it online although i think it is a mopar part i've just never seen it in their catalogs (which would officially make it "factory") good luck with the build it's fun/tricky but not inpossible. I have a link on the install also on this forum.

My husband likes this hitch. He asked, did you have any problems installing it?
Well I'm not sure anything was very problematic, but the project is very tedious. For me the electrical hardwiring was hard because I am inepxerienced in soldering. But that step is not required and you can always run the aftermarket trailer cable out the hatch.

How did you find the wire coding for the renegade? I can't seem to locate it and have no help in using test light.
