Installing a Hitch
I have a 2001 Grand Cherokee and I would like to install a trailer hitch. I have noticed that GCs with factory-installed hitches have a different bumper cover than ones not equipped. Also when I checked the rear bumper cover wraps under right up to the gas tank leaving no place to access for mounting. Has anybody had an after market hitch put on and just what was involved? I am assuming the bumper cover will have to be removed, the hitch installed, and a hole cut in the bumper cover for the receiver before remounting. Please let me know what you had done and what issues you had if any.
Also what should I expect to pay to have a tranny cooler installed parts and labor?
