Comanche hitches are unique, sadly. Either you buy a comanche specific hitch or build your own bumper.

True, this was over 12 years ago. Don't know if they still do it or not.
Nevertheless, that is where I got mine. fyi

"Oow, you lucky b@st@rd!" Monty Python, Life of Brian.

Reese, DrawTite and Uhaul have not made then for 10+ yrs. You must have gotten one of the last.

There were less than 200k MJs build and the youngest is 22 yrs old. So the big boys arent going to make them unless the demand is there (not).

The rear of the MJ is diff from the XJ, so the XJ receivers wont fit.

To the OP, your best bet is to search jy's. On Comancheclub, there are several threads about rear receiver hitches. http://comancheclub.com/topic/26626-...-5?hl=receiver One member has drawn up the plans for the mounting bracket. You will need to find a cross piece to weld to them. I took the plans to welding/fabricator and was quoted at $140 for the brackets.

There a number of custum bumper builders advertising on JF and CC for MJ bumpers. You may look at some of those.

Good luck
