Rear bumper bar or install hitch?
I have a '08 wk. I live in ny city and have dealt with people tapping my bumper while parking for FAR to long. Last week, someone backed into my bumper and put a big dimple and two holes in the bumper cover...he has settled with me for enough to replace the bumper cover in a body shop. While that's all well and good, I think this is the perfect opportunity to combat the problem of people tapping my bumper and effectively scratching my new bumper.
So, I pose a question. Do I install a hitch or do I install a rear bumper bar? Both have advantages and both will help keep my bumper from getting to many scrapes from inconsiderate neighbors.
I did some digging and im confused as to where I can buy a replacement bumper cover..fascia... That already has the mopar oem hitch cutout Or do I need to purchase a replacement bumper cover and cut it myself? If I had to cut it myself, I would obviously practice on the beat up bumper cover.
Now I realize a hitch will allow me to install a bike rack and will keep cars approximately 3"-6" from my car...which makes me happy. But I don't know if it's better to have the hitch installed or get. Bumper bar?
Chim in and if you can, send me link of install guide or video if possible..
