I'm going with a Class 3 hitch. There are just so many more options once you go to a 2" receiver. Cargo carriers, bike carriers, portable winch mounts.

I believe the Class II hitch from Quadratec does have a 2" receiver does it not? Since the 2-Door Sport is limited to 2,000 pounds why get a Class III hitch? http://www.quadratec.com/products/12015_1009_07.htm

You are right, my last Class 2 was 1 1/2", had to move up to a class 3 to get the 2" mount. It's the 2" mount that's important not the rating.

Is this necessary? I found a post where after installing the hitch and wiring harness the poster said "all that is left is the activation of the Trailer Sway feature of the computer. You can have the dealer do it though, but I'm not sure just how effective it truly is. Trying to control sway via the vehicle's ESP/Stability system is the wrong approach."

Necessary?

Forgot to mention in my original post that I will be pulling a utility trailer.

It is essentially the same as the Mopar one. I'm towing this with it.

I decided to go with the Hidden Hitch because of the longer receiver tube and the Mopar (Quadratec) wiring harness. Also picked up a few parts from eTrailer to mount the plug.

You are sure you want to go with this ?, It will kill your back angle, I don't see really how you can hook up your chains. You would be better with a shorter receiver and longer ball mount. That's just me.

I wanted the tube to clear as much of the spare tire as possible. I don't understand what you mean by "back angle" and why do you think there will be a problem with the chains? I don't remember reading a single negative comment about this hitch. Please explain. Thanks

I have the class 3 and pull a welding trailer with it so it is up to par.

He's referring to your departure angle. With the mopar hitch and stock bumper, the hitch will take any scrapes before the bumper. If this one is longer it will take away more of that departure angle. All really depends on what you're using it for though!
