I Need help!

I just bought a 04 grand Cherokee special edition. It didn't come with a factory hitch. I was wondering if I could put one on it? The bumper is all one pice so would I have to cut it to make room for a hitch? Thanks

The factory tow option pops through the bumper. The aftermarkets sit right below it. I *think* there is a plug in the bumper you can remove if you find a factory hitch.

Yes you can put one on it. If you go with a factory hitch you'll have to cut the bumper valence, but I believe that some of the aftermarket hitches sit below the valence.

I used Hidden Hitch and just notched out the bumper. The interference is mostly at the bottom of the bumper and with a good cut not noticeable; I like the look better than the factory job and it doesn't stick out and bang the shins.
