Do you have a hitch on your JK????

Hey there. I have this Hidden Hitch below and I want your factory hitch. Maybe we can help each other....

Hidden Hitch 87424 - Hidden Hitch Class III 2" Receiver Hitch for 07-10 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec


This hitch sticks out too far for my application. The stem measures 6.5" from the absolute END (outside) of the 2" receiver hitch opening -to- the other side of the stem -or- beginning of the initial vertical wall (of the hitch). At 6.5", I think it sticks out a good 3 or 4" from where the factory hitch would be. Maybe even 5"?

It's never been installed, just sitting around the shop for a while, dusty but in otherwise new condition. I have the HW bag (and it's complete). If you would benefit from an "extended" hitch - let's trade up.

If I don't hear from anyone after a few weeks, I'll try to return this hitch.

Weights:
max gross 3500.
max tongue 350.

Fits these Vehicles:
07-09 Jeep Wrangler 2-Door (JK)
07-09 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4-Door (JK)

Parts Included:
Hitch Assembly
Four ˝-13 x 4.50 Hex Bolts
Four Conical Washers
Installation Instructions

edit to ad

today I propped up the hidden hitch and took some pics of how far the stem will stick out once installed:









as for the quality. I think it's designed and built really well, for someone who needs a longer stem.
