installing hitch and hitch bezel

next week i will be installing my trailer hitch and bezel. (girlfriend will be out of town so i will be able to work on it! yay!)

i downloaded the instructions for installing the parts from wjjeeps.com and have the haynes manual. does anyone have any tips or tricks to make the install smooth? the instructions are very vague. also, where do i find the necessary fastners for the bumper and wheel wells besides the dealer?

Thanks for any help!

Very easy.... Did mine last weekend. I reused the bumper fasteners in the rear, They come out real easy, Had to cut the heads off the plastic rivits in the wheel wells, No big thing. Bought replacement clips at autozone.

I'd recomend a impact wrench to remove the bolts.
Spray a little penitrating oil into the 2 rear bolt holes to clean out the dirt. Mine were really bad.
I Set the hitch up on a crate underneith the jeep. My wife lifted one side while i put the front bolt in the other. Just worked my way to the back.
