Cutting plastic bumper cover for Mopar hitch...any suggestions
I ordered the hitch for my 14' limited. Anyone have any tips for cutting the black plastic part of the bumper cover?

I put one on. What worked for me was to drill a series of small holes inside the perimeter of the cutout line (on the inside of the bumper). Used this for the slots as well, just drilled a hole at each end of the slot. I then used a utlilty knife with some new blades, cut a line conneting the holes, then took small short strokes to get up to the line. You do have some room for error.
From my research this looks like one of the simplest parts of the install. Also since the bezel goes well beyond the area you cut it doesn't have to be even close to perfect.
I've seen a few different write ups where a stanley knife was used so it can't be that tough.
I'll be ordering mine today. I can report back in a week or two.
