Tow Package

What exactly is the tow package?? In the UK all WJ's have a tow bar as stock. I love how you can detach the hitch on your US jeeps must be great when wheelin not getting it stuck or hitting it on rocks.

? You can remove the hitch block (which some replace with a D shackle for recovery,) however the hitch assembly is not easily removed without a bit of work.

Here is some info on the various tow packages availble....

if you want to remove the entire hitch, your gonna need some air tools. you can swap whatever out of the receiver no problem. it should be held in with a clip and pin.
