Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Jeep Commander
Today we are going to install hitch part number 87752 on a 2006 Jeep Commander. This hitch will also fit the Jeep Grand Cherokee as well. All right, the first thing we are going to do is to go ahead and lower the spare tire and get that out of the way. Now we are under the vehicle here and we are looking at the back bumper crossmember. We want to go ahead and remove the pins going into this crossmember - this pushpin here and this pushpin here as well. That will give us room to be able to put the hitch up under and around this cross tube. A good idea before you put the hitch up into position is to go ahead and run the bolts into the hitch a couple of times to clean up the threads. It is a lot faster and easier because the frame might interfere once the hitch up into position.
