Want to add Class 3 trailer hitch to Patriot

I have a 2007 Jeep Patriot Sport 25D and want to add a class 3 hitch without modifying the back bumper or do any vehicle modification. Does anyone have suggestions which hitch to buy and suggestions on how to mount. Also which wiring harness to buy for best value and that works. Want to tow 2,000 lbs but want the 2" receiver. Thanks, Richard.

Go to the Hidden hitch site: http://www.hidden-hitch.com/ and click on the Trailer Hitches and follow the menus. They show their own hitch, part number 87422, and a Draw Tite 75513 that are both 2" Class III receivers and their own wiring harness number 118428. They have links to their own instruction but the ones that we have here can be followed except for cutting the rear fascia is not required. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showt...=346762&page=4 The only caveat is that some have had problems with them rattling against the muffler. Maybe someone can offer more feed back on that.
