Hitch mounts that fit the WJ

Looking for some quick info...anyone know if any other models have OEM hitches that will fit on the WJ? Thanks.

I just put a Reese hitch on mine. Product # 33018. Turned out pretty good to me. Fits behind the bumper and fills in the bumper trim thingy if you have it. Very solid, although I haven't gotten a chance to test it yet.

Found it on craigslist for $50. $10-15 in hardware and it was bolted up, no drilling needed. You will want grade 8 bolts or better. Otherwise I don't think any other models have the same holes for the frame as ours. You could always drill new ones but it's not really a great idea.

Reese is the only one that's close to OEM.
You can get under the tank hitches if you want and if you order from the dealer all they sell is the under the tank ones now not through the bumper they no longer make it for the WJ.
