Anyone have any recommendations on a trailer hitch for a 2011 Liberty?

I went with the mopar. For an extra few bucks on ebay it was brand new and in my opinion it looks the best and is very solid

A hitch is my next investment. Does the moose one sit flush or do I need to do SE trimming to the bumper cover. There's a little insertion that looks like it might need to be trimmed out

the Mopar looks nice but the only one I can find is on www.jeepworld.com for $250. Seems a little step for the occasional plywood/camping gear I'd be hauling only a few times a year. I really don't plan on using it much but I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for.
Go with the mopar. Going cheap is almost always a mistake.

I went with the Mopar as well on our 2008. I found one brand new on E-bay. Don't recall how much I ended up paying for it. It was slightly more than the aftermarket ones. I think it fits better and looks better myself. The receiver doesn't stick our as far on the Mopar ones. You don't have to worry about hitting your leg on it, like you would with the aftermarket ones. It also came with the nice Jeep receiver plug and mount for the 7 pin trailer wiring plug.

Mopar all the way. Yes, the plastic under the rear bumper skin has to be cut. The receiver tucks nicely up in there out of the way.

I bought the MOPAR hitch and 7 wire harness and had the dealer install them. A few extra bucks for the parts and labor, but I always prefer OEM when I can get it, and having the dealer install it saved the heartburn. Plus if something screws up I'll just take it back to the dealer and hopefully get any fixes for free. Nice clean install, fits up nice and tight. If I was younger I would have done it myself. But since I've gotten older, why bother, I'll pay someone to do all the "heavy lifting" for me.
