Best 2016 Jeep Wrangler Hitch Options

Today we're going to be taking a look at the best hitches available for the two thousand and sixteen Jeep Wrangler. The most popular hitch we have is the Curt Class III, this is part number 9883544. Followed up by the Hidden Hitch, this is part number 75515, and then our Draw-Tite, part number 87424, both of these Class III as well, and then lastly the Curt part number 13432. Now, both Curt hitches that we have here and the Draw-Tite and the Hidden Hitch that we have here, these are the exact same thing. That's going to eliminate two of them. We'll just get these out of the way. Now the first thing you're going to notice and I think the biggest deciding factor on the two hitches, is going to be where you want it positioned on your vehicle. With our Curt, you're going to see the receiver tube.

It's got a 2" by 2" receiver tube opening of course, and then here you can see our rounded-style safety chain connection points, they're on a plate there, so it should give us great security, nice heavy duty. I think just about any safety chain you'd have should connect there, and .. See, our receiver tube opening here, that's 5/8" in diameter and I think that most Class III accessories should work, as long as they have a little bit smaller diameter.

Hopkins Tail Light Wiring Kit Installation - 2016 Jeep Wrangler

Today on our 2016 Jeep Wrangler, we're going to show you how to install the Hopkins Custom Taillight Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles, part number HM56200. What this is going to allow us to do is hook up our motor home, and it's going to operate the lights on the vehicle just as if we we're sitting inside the car turning the signals on. It does that with the diode converter here, so this box has built-in diodes. This is going to prevent any back feed into the electrical system of the towed vehicle, and the diodes are going to convert whatever signal it's getting from our taillights into a usable signal. That diode converter is going to take the signal coming in from the motor home, it's going to translate it into signals that the vehicle can use to operate its taillights. Great thing about it is when it's not connected to your motor home, there's going to be absolutely no interference. Now to begin our installation, we need to remove the driver's side taillight.



Thule Spare Tire Bike Racks Review - 2014 Jeep Wrangler

Today on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler, we're going to test fit the Thule Spare Me 2 Spare Tire Mounted Bike Carrier, part number TH963PRO. Now we've already taken our tire off and we placed our metal plate in place. We followed the instructions for that so just double-check. Make sure that's the right way for your vehicle. Simply slide it on and then we can mount up our tire. Before we mount that up, we want to take off this cap here.



Thule Spare Tire Bike Racks Review - 2016 Jeep Wrangler

As you can see this bike rack is going to attach right onto our spare tire. This gives us a great way to travel with 2 bikes behind the vehicle. We've got a couple of incorporated locks. The first is going to be a cable lock.



Saris Freedom Spare Tire Bike Racks Review - 2016 Jeep Wrangler

Today on our 2016 Jeep Wrangler, we've got the Saris Freedom Spare Tire Mounted Platform Style 2 Bike Rack out. We're test fitting it to let you see how it fits on the Wrangler. This is part number SA999TB. This spare tire rack is going to mount with the plate behind your spare tire, uses all the existing lug nuts, so it's really easy to get it installed, and it offers us a platform style rack, which we don't often see with the spare tire bike racks. We've got 3 points of contact that are going to hold the bike. Got a front cradle with strap, a rear cradle with strap, and also our center frame cradle strap here. It really does a good job of immobilizing the bike, keeps them from moving back and forth that we might get from some of those hanging style rack, might get some more sway out of those. To remove our bike, we're just going to release our straps.



Hollywood Racks SR2 Spare Tire Bike Racks Review - 2016 Jeep Wrangler

Now the first thing we're going to do is take a few sets of measurements. The first is going to be our ground clearance. Down here to this bottom bolt we've got about 16-3/4". Overall to the back of the Jeep we're adding about 29-1/2" here.



MaxxTow Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2014 Jeep Wrangler

Today our 2014 Jeep Wrangler we're doing a test fit of the Max Tow 48x21 Cargo carrier. Part number MT70422. Designed to work with 2 inch hitches and have a capacity to hold up to 500 lbs. So the first thing we will do is take a few measurements here. Ground clearance is going to be first. We've got about 18 1/2 inches of clearance. Overall from the back of the Jeep we are adding about 29 1/2 inches there. And our closest point is about 7 inches away. Our spare tire here does hang over just a bit, it's about 3 1/2 inches away or so but with this carrier we can open that back hatch and get anything in or out that we may need just be aware that you won't be able to do that if you have a lot of materials stacked up onto your carrier. Also on our Wrangler we do have a single passenger side exhaust. It comes just about straight out at that carrier there with about 11 1/2 inches between the two so just be careful if you plan on carrying any heat sensitive materials in this region that you might run into a little bit of a problem. This carrier comes with a hitch pin and clip although it does come with it it still allows for a lot of movement and shake. You can purchase an anti-rattle device to slide in there so you won't have as much movement. That's going to complete our look at the Max Tow 48x21 Cargo carrier, part number MT70422 on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler. Let's see how it does on the test course. Here on our test course let's start by running through the slalom.

We're going to have about 17-1/4" of ground clearance.





Jeep Wrangler Questions

  • What you need is a light kit specifically for flat-towing. The Plug-N-Tow TM Vehicle Wiring Harness, # 42615, would be if the Jeep were towing a trailer and not for activating its lights while it is being towed. There are a few options for lighting when flat-towing a vehicle. I have included an FAQ article that covers the various options. What it boils down to is how often you will be towing the Jeep behind the motor home. If you do not plan on towing it very often, the...

  • The tire size you referenced, 4.80-8, and 4.80/4-8 tire are interchangeable. The width is just slightly different, but will fit the same size wheels. The older tire size use to be a 4.00-8, so the 4-8 is added to the tire description so that those who have the older 4.00x8 tires, which are no longer available, will know that this size is compatible with their trailer. This is the case with the Kenda Bias Trailer Tire, part # AM30000. I have linked a tire size FAQ that shows...

  • Flat towing your Jeep Wrangler behind your Class A motor home will require the tow bar, a lighting/wiring kit, safety chains, base plates and a supplemental braking system. The linked article will give you background on each of these. The Quick Disconnect system for Roadmaster tow bars consists of both vehicle-side and tow-bar-side parts. Car-side brackets are available alone as part # RM-222 and tow bar-side brackets as part # RM-221. The complete bracket kit is part # RM-201;...

  • Base plates and tow bars are sold separately. For a 2016 Jeep Wrangler I recommend Blue Ox base plates # BX1126 if it is NOT a Rubicon or Hard Rock edition. Or if you do have a Rubicon or Hard Rock edition I recommend # BX1134. Both base plate sets are compatible with the Acclaim tow bar, # BX4330. The tow bar comes with the safety cables so you will not need any additional cables. Next you will need a lighting solution. I recommend the 4-diode kit # RM-152. Once installed...

  • There are other options for protecting your towed vehicle other than the Roadmaster Guardian you mentioned. The Roadmaster Tow Defender, part # RM-4700 stretches between the RV and the towed vehicle, deflecting rocks downward before they can damage your vehicle. The Tow defender attaches to the tow bar and the quick disconnects on the vehicle base plates. Roadmaster also offers the Roadwing Removable Mud Flaps, part # RM-44000. The Roadwing is available in various widths,...

  • I did some research on a 2012 Jeep Wrangler, and per the Jeep website, if you have a Class lll trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver, the tongue weight capacity for that hitch is 500 lbs. The weight capacity would include the cargo carrier weight along with anything that would be carried. The towing capacity for your Jeep Wrangler is 2000 lbs. If you have a Class lll hitch, one of the carriers I recommend is the 24x60 Pro Series Cargo Carrier, part # 63153. It features a 2-1/2...

The linked article explains each of these items in some detail.

I suggest the Blue Ox # BX1126 with removable arms which...

  • We have a few hitch mount bike rack options that will work for you. One of the most popular hitch mount bike racks among our Jeep Wrangler customers is the Thule Hitching Post Pro, # TH934XTR. This bike rack measures 13-1/2 inches to the back of the upright mast and about 9 inches to the lower post at the bottom of the mast. Looking at your picture, I don't think the lower post will interfere with your rear tire. I have attached a review video of this bike rack on a Jeep Wrangler...

  • Since your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon has the Hard Rock package you will need to use Blue Ox base plates # BX1134. Model # BX1126 will not fit.

  • You will be able to use this RoadMaster Tracker Tow Bar # RM-020 to flat tow your 2000 Jeep Wrangler, but first you will need a base plate kit. I attached a page that has all of the different base plate kits available for your vehicle that are compatible with the # RM-020. You will need to select which bumper style you have and then you will have the correct base plate kit for your vehicle. You will also need a Roadmaster Tow Bar Quick Disconnect Kit # RM-201 to make connecting...

  • Jeep recommends disconnecting the negative battery cable when flat towing to prevent the battery from draining. When you flat tow your Wrangler, the ignition must be left in the ACC position. This would leave certain electronic components on that could drain the battery. For your situation, I would recommend installing the Roadmaster Automatic Battery Disconnect, # RM-765, that you referenced. This will eliminate the hassle of having to disconnect your battery cable each time...

  • I have included a couple of pictures that show the differences between a double tube bumper and a U-channel bumper. A double tube bumper really is 2 round tubes while a U-Channel is U-shaped (more of a C-shape or a U turned on its side). In the case of base plates you could use # 1424-1 because it will fit U-Channel or double tube bumpers. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your...

  • The most economical folding trailer hitch mount cargo carrier that I would recommend is Curt carrier # C18109. It is a 19x60 inch for 2 inch trailer hitches. But it only measures 5 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier when folded up. This probably will not clear the spare tire on your 2015 Jeep Wrangler. The 24x60 inch carrier # C18153 measures 9 inches to the nearest part of the carrier when folded up so it is more likely to fit....

  • You can test your brake controller to determine if it is damaged on the inside or if the problem is from somewhere else. Sever the blue wire a few inches from the back of the controller. Test the blue wire on the brake controller side after you have cut it. If it shows power when not using the manual override, then there is a problem inside the controller and it will need to be replaced. If the controller functions like it should then the problem is further back. A short to...

  • The base plate kit # 1424-1 fits a 1997 to 2006 Jeep Wrangler. This is the kit that I recommend for your 2003 Jeep Wrangler. The removable arms, once removed, make the base plates seem like they are not even there. You will also need a tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. For a tow bar, the most popular option for the XL base plates is the Roadmaster Falcon 2, # RM-520. I have included a link to the installation details and a link to a video review of...

  • If you are speaking of the conical washers used on the top bolt that holds the weight distribution head to the shank, as shown in the diagram I edited for you, the concave or dished portion of the washer will face inward toward the weight distribution head and away from the bolt head or nut, so that the washer will compress as its tightened.

  • The first thing you are going to need to flat tow your 2006 Jeep Wrangler would be a base plate kit. This provides the attachment point for the tow bars to the vehicle. Since you referenced the Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar # BX7322 I would recommend you go with a Blue Ox Blue Ox Base Plates # BX1120. Next you will need some safety cables, for that I would recommend the Blue Ox 7 foot Safety Cables # BX88196. These safety cables are coiled and will get wrapped around the arms...
