Price for hitch bezel?

Best I can find is $50 shipped which is about what I paid for the hitch itself for a small piece of plastic..

So am I just being cheap or does anyone know where to get one used cheaper? Doesn't matter what color since I plan on Plasti-dipping it white to match.

I thought they were melted on and you had to buy them new?

I've never heard about that, so I dunno. I always thought they were a removable piece but I may be wrong, never had to put a hitch on mine it came with it.

It's melted

I had to replace mine and when I pulled it out, the ends where melted. This bezzle only has two hole to place pressure pins right at the bottom, the other post where melted.

But I saw on other sites that they used butterfly nuts, to hold them together. You might need to cut a little out of them, that is what I ended up doing. Mine cost me around 40 bucks, but I bought them with local body shop (Try to find the chinesse parts on line).

Let me look at mine tomorrow to see if I can get it off. $25 plus shipping.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

I got mine here on jeepforum in the classifieds - It was pretty cheap. I drilled a few holes -- 4 or 5 I think -- around the perimeter of the bezel, and mounted it to the bumper with some black-zinc plated screws from work. Came out great. I couldn't believe what a new bezel costs. Crazy.

Good luck
Pete
