OK, we will take our ground wire with the ring terminal and we will run it straight to the frame. We will go ahead and show you how we routed our wire. Above the sub-frame there is a piece of tubing that goes all of the way across the suspension. So we actually thread it through from the front to the rear.

I am going to zip-tie my front connector off to it and begin the routing of my wire to the rear of the vehicle. You can see our wire coming up over the axle now. We are going to use these two rear mounting holes. We are going to zip-tie off the rear leader going to our taillights. Now that we have our wire feed run to the rear of the vehicle, what we need to do is remove the taillight lenses in order to splice our wire in. The first step is going to be open the rear hatch of the vehicle and remove the ports bit screws so that we can remove the lenses.

OK, now we will go ahead and show you where the attaching points are on the vehicle. There is going to be this weld nut, this one and this one, that was covered up by the hook. Now, the ones that have been exposed, you probably want to clean them out a little bit. So we are going to use some lubricant and just go ahead and spray it down. Then we will go ahead and thread one of the hitch bolts into it. You want to go in a few threads and back it off and then go a few more until you can run it all of the way through to the other side. Our driver side of the vehicle is finished now. Let us go over to the passenger side and clean out the threads over there. 0:55

And we are just looking at the driver side. This is going to be identical, as well, on the passenger side. The first step to do is to go ahead and spray it down with some lubricant. Let it soak in a little bit. Then use one of the hitch bolts to help thread in a little bit and try to work some of that dirt and grime and rust out of there. We will go ahead and repeat the same process on the rest of these bolts. This will take a considerable amount of time to clean these out. 0:43



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2004 Jeep Liberty

Today on this 2004 Jeep Liberty we are going to install part number 13044 from Curt.

We are going to spray down the rubber exhaust hanger with some lubricant and just pry it off and get it out of the way. Next we will install a strap onto the exhaust just to help hold it out of the way a little bit because there is one hole in the frame that is just curved by the exhaust pipe. We just need to move it over just a little bit. Now we can show you the locations of where the hitch is going to bolt up on to the frame. 00:34



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2007 Jeep Liberty

Today on this 2007 Jeep Liberty we are going to be installing Curt hitch part number 13044. We are underneath the vehicle and we are taking a look at the driver side frame rail. As you can see, we have three existing weld nuts here, one at the rear side, one at the middle and then one at the forward side. Those are going to provide our three attaching points for our trailer hitch. And that is going to be the same on both the driver and passenger sides. Into those weld nuts, we are going to be installing 12 millimeter bolts, along with a conical tooth washer, that is provided with our hitch installation kit. And what you may notice is that the weld nuts have some corrosion or road grime built up in them, like on this vehicle. So the first thing that we want to do is go ahead and clean those out thoroughly. To do that, we just want to take a spray lubricant, like a WD-40 and go ahead and spray that down. Then we just want to take a thick bristled wire brush of some sorts and go ahead and run that in there. You probably need to do that a couple times. And we just want to repeat that for all six of the weld nuts. 1:02



Roadmaster Tow Bar Installation - 2006 Jeep Liberty

Today we are going to show you part number RM-576 from Roadmaster. This is their Sterling All Terrain tow bar. We will be installing this on a 2006 Jeep Liberty. Our Jeep here already has the base plates installed so we are going to concentrate on the tow bar. We have got the parts laid out in the order of assembly. Starting off with these two pieces right here, these are the adapter parts that go to your face plate that is mounted on your vehicle which allows you to connect this cross bar to the base plates and then to this cross bar the sterling all terrain tow bar mounts to it. Start with the brackets that are listed for the driver side and passenger side of a car. This will get mounted up like this and then the bracket for the safety chains is going to get mounted on the bottom like this. Go ahead and bolt up these two halves and put the assembly on to the tow bar bracket. 01:00



Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring Kit Installation - 2006 Jeep Liberty

Today on this 2006 Jeep Liberty we are going to install part number RM-154 from Roadmaster. What this does is allows us to wire up the vehicle so that it can be towed behind an RV. The first step is to route the wire from the front to rear and the wire harness comes with two truck ends on the wiring harness itself. We are just going to cut off one end of it, leave about a foot or so on there in case we need to use it again or in case the original one gets worn out. This 4-pole is going to stay at the front and basically you can think about it as like wiring up a utility trailer. This is going to stay in the front and the car is going to become a trailer at this point. We are going to run our wire between the plastic up in here towards the center as close as possible because in the future a face plate will get installed in that general area. Thread that on through until we come out the other side and we are going to route it all the way back and stay away from the suspension components and we are actually going to run it through the frame. 01:00



Roadmaster Base Plate Installation - 2006 Jeep Liberty

Today, on this 2006 Jeep Liberty, we are going to install part number 521423-1 from Roadmaster. What is going to happen is these base plates mount to the frame of the vehicle and allows the vehicle to be towed behind. The mounts will be approximately right in this area, right here. So to get started we are going to have to remove the bumper cover and the grille. We will go ahead and start off by taking the bolts off the lower part of the fascia here so we can get that loose. We have the bottom part of the fascia loose now. Now let us go to the top and start working on the grille and work our way down to take the fascia off. Alright, next we will go ahead and start taking off the grille. There is basically, on this model, there is a series of snaps that hold the grille in place. So we will undo these first. Next what we are going to do is continue with the bumper cover here and remove this bolt here and here. Next we will go ahead and remove the plastic rivets that go to the fender liner here, one here and one here. Repeat the same process back over on the passenger side. Alright, getting back underneath, there are two more plastic rivets that we need to take out here and here. With the fender wheel liner pulled back a little bit, and then push in. There is a little snap right here. And then pull down. 1:20



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Jeep Liberty

Today we are going to install part number 13044 from Curt, and we are going to install this Class III receiver hitch on a 2006 Jeep Liberty. We will show you where the hitch mounts up. It is going to mount up along three holes in the frame here, here and here. And this has a skid shield in place. Your vehicle may not have the skid shield, so it is going to have the empty three holes. And it is going to be the same thing on the other side. In this case, this actually comes down with a recovery hook that is in place. This whole piece and assembly will actually have to come down and stay off when the hitch is installed. Again, there are three bolts on each side behind this hook, too, just like on the passengers side.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2005 Jeep Liberty

Before we begin installing, its a good idea to inspect the vehicle first. On this particular model, or any model run into, the nuts installed in the frame can sometimes get corroded. If you look closely you can tell theyre rusted up so the paint is flaking off from the inside. We really need to clean those out before we get started. What you want to do is find yourself a lubricant like WD-40 or some other penetrate that will work to loosen up the rust in there. What you can do is use the bolts that came with the hitch, run them a little bit in a little bit out, just to get the the stuff cleaned out a little bit. In extreme cases you may have to go out and buy a tap, thats the best way if it is too rusted out and you cant see the threads at all. Well try it the conventional way first. It can take a while, we spent 20-25 minutes cleaning all 6 holes out.
