Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2005 Jeep Wrangler - Curt

Today on our 2005 Jeep Wrangler, we're going to install Part # 13408 from Curt. This is what the hitch looks like when it's installed on the Jeep. Next, we'll go ahead and use some measurements to help you out in selecting some accessories such as a ball knot, a bicycle rack or a cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outside edge of the spare tire, we're looking at a measurement of 7.25 inches. On the top of the receiver opening down to the ground, you're looking at a measurement of 15 inches. Now, we'll go ahead and show you how to hitch is installed.

At first step is to go ahead and remove the toe hook here, remove these two bolts. After you remove the toe hook, make sure you take out the handle nut that's inside as well. Now, we move over to the passenger side and remove the bolt right here. Now the bolt removed on the driver side is where our hitch will mount up. On our passenger side, we'll use the bolt tool here in opening the frame.

Now we can go ahead and start and install the hardware inside the frame. We'll install the carriage bolt and the block. Take the carriage bolt, run it to the block and then start into the bolt leader that comes with the kit. Push it all up into the frame and then back through. Let's go back over and shoot that passenger side same thing again.

Now, we can go ahead and loose the attached hitch to the hardware we just installed and we'll fasten the half inch locking us on the bottom side. The kit comes with a standard tread and metric tread. Now take the original bolt and see which one measures with the tread's best and that will be replaced bolt. In this case, we will be using the metric bolt. Then install the inaudible washer and bolt them into the factory hardware in the frame.

With all the hardware loosely installed, then we can go ahead and tighten on the bolt then torque them down as specified in the instructions. And with that, that will finish it for our install Part # 13408 from Curt on our 2005 Jeep Wrangler.

Great hitch at better price compared to anybody else. Recieved it quicker than I expected. Its a solid hitch well built. After viewing the install video it should install quick. 567235

The Curt trailer hitch receiver 13408 was an easy install on my Jeep Wrangler, a perfect fit! I’ve used it for a year now and it’s exactly the look I wanted. I recommend it highly! 588513

Placed internet order on a Monday evening and received order on Wednesday evening. Impressed with speedy fulfillment of order. All items were correct and packaged adequately. I strongly recommend Etrailer. 476715

The holes on the hitch did not line up with the holes in the frame, not sure if his is because I have an extended bed on the vehicle or not. Was easy to drill four holes and finish the mount. This was an easy install and the time that it took was less than that estimated, even with drill new holes. I would suggest to everyone to watch the install videos first, as they give some great pointers. 42937

I order the trailer hitch and receive it in 4 day, installed it the same day, took me 3 hours. The hitch well build and easy to install. I’m very happy with the product. 560024

Couldn't be happier. My trailer hitch was reasonably priced, well packaged, well supported with instructions and came FAST with free shipping. I watched the video one time and it was pretty straight forward. The hardest part of the installation on my 06 Wrangler was finding the right size wrenches in my messy tool box. If I had the tools all laid out in advance, I think installation would only have taken 20 minutes. I had my son help me lift it in place, and I used a box/open wrench to attach the passenger side because of the tail pipe. This was my first time ordering from etrailer. I am extremely happy with the experience. 571974

Needed a hitch for my 05 Unlimited Rubicon that didn't bolt from the side of the frame. This was perfect! 4 bolts, super simple install, and it looks great! I would recommend this hitch to anyone with a 1997-2006 Jeep TJ or Unlimited. 565974

Hitch was delivered faster than I expected. Ordered on Yuesday and delivered on Friday. I took the time to make sure the bolts were already freed up from the rust on my Wrangler so when I installed the hitch it actually only took 10 minutes. Was towing the jet ski 30 minutes later. 526118

Very satisfied with the price and quality of hitch and mounting hardware. Took me about 45 minutes to install by myself with regular hand tools on my 2001 Wrangler. I ran a tap through the rear fasteners before installing the new hardware. The wire tool that came w/hardware made installation easier. I was looking for a way to mount a bike carrier on my jeep and this was the simple solution. 258036

This is the second time I've purchased from e-trailer and have had great experience both times, fast shipping and great packing. The trailer hitch was perfect, easy to install on my jeep wrangler, took me about 30 mins, but could have been faster if I would have read the super easy instructions! Highly recommend this hitch, it's definitely well built and I will be very confident that I will have no issues with pulling my boat. Also got the wiring loom to hook up the lights and it's a snap to install, definitely worth it! 210194

Installed on a 2004 jeep wrangler. Installation was really easy and fast. Etrailer videos made installation a breeze. Installed by myself, only hard part was lifting hitch in place and catching the bolt, but I was able to lift one side into place and balance the other side on my knee. After that just install the rest of the bolts and make sure you have a 1/2 torque wrench that can tighten to 110 ft lbs. I highly recommend this hitch! 241861

I just installed it. It was easy to install. Etrailer made sure I had everything I needed. It has a great paint job and it is of high quality. 560327

This was an easy install and easy fit. The instructions were a little confusing as it covers several model years so it referenced bolts not on my '06, however it's a pretty straightforward install so that wasn't a big deal. It comes with a neat little snake wire for the forward bolts, I thought this was going to be a pain but instead it turned out to be really easy. You can fit the bolt and plate through the hole main in the frame and then use the snake to pull them into place so snaking between holes in the frame isn't needed. There is enough play in the hitch (at least on a '06) so that the hitch can be moved aside with one side loosely bolted to use this method. I was able to to this by myself using a floor jack to support one end while I bolted up the other, the hitch is heavy enough you're going to want some support while you get the initial bolts in place. You're also going to need a 1/2" drive torque wrench, this thing is only held on with 4 bolts so you're going to want to make sure they're torqued to spec. Other than needing to unbolt the tailpipe to get it out of the way for the passenger side front bolt this was a very easy and straightforward install, no problems with the first tow. 247944

Snap to install on my Wrangler. From start to finish it took less than 20 minutes. I may have gotten it done sooner and easier if I had some help but it still went in easy peasy as a solo project. Included before and after pics 554908

Great sturdy product, excellent finish, I have an 02 wrangler and the access hole they tell u to use is too small for the bolt head, just use the hole the hitch lines up with, once I figured that out it only took 5 mins ! 240793

Great quality and easy to install as per instructions. Thanks for a good product and helpful videos. The wiring harness was even easier to install (except for accumulation of dirt in my face from the covers.) use of safety goggles might be a good tip. My bumper is hollow on the back. Actually a piece of U channel, so after glueing a magnet to the plug I can hide all wiring out of sight behind it. 549317

Vehicle: 2000 Jeep Wrangler Sport This is a two part review. The first is etrailer and their service. This was my first experience with them and I am IMPRESSED. I placed the order Tuesday night at 8:30 and it was delivered at 12:30 Thursday afternoon. Their communication is excellent. Their website is fantastic for tracking the shipment. I found myself checking it more often than I should have just to watch the progress on the map. Part two: the receiver. Everything was right, nothing was damaged, everything fit, everything worked the first time. The packaging was good. The Curt receiver is solid with good welds and good paint. The holes lined up. The instructions were good enough. Oh yeah my only complaint is the carriage bolt heads were a little to big to fit through the hole in the frame. I had to cut maybe 1/8" off one side. Other than that you need to have a little patience in fishing the wire down through the frame. The first one took me at least 20-30 minutes and some serious words. The second one went though the first try and took 2 minutes. This receiver is bigger than is needed for my Jeep but it keeps the hitch the same size as our truck and as long as I don't try to pull 4000LBS with it, oversize won't hurt. It was only $20 more for the 2". All in all I'm very happy with the purchase and with etrailer. 52440

Great product and great service. I would give this product and this company a 5 star rating in all categories. 1- Web site 5 2-Customer service 5 - Thank You - George J 3- Product video 5 4- Installation video 5 5- Delivery 5 I priced out a complete receiver hitch installation kit from a local dealer and was quoted $310.00 Purchased the receiver hitch for my 2004 Jeep Wrangler from etrailer for much less than that and my son and I did the install in less than 30 minutes. I shop on line for just about all purchases (107 in the last six months) This company is at the top of my list on all aspects of on line orders. 524015

I bought this hitch because it would work with the Aries Trail Crusher 1 Piece Rear Bumper for Jeep Item # AA2157001. Install was easy enough. Etrailer shipping is excellent an so is their customer service. A couple things that I did not like are, hitch does not properly center on the bumper, only 4 holes so it can not move one way or the other, at least it was on sale. I am going to have to cut the bumper so that the hitch pin and lock will work. If I had known this I would have chosen another bumper/ hitch combo entirely and saved money 622010

  • What is the Difference Between the Curt Hitches # 13430 and # 13408 for a 2006 Jeep TJ Wrangler
  • The biggest difference between Curt Hitch # 13430 and # 13408 is that the # 13430 has a round cross tube whereas the # 13408 has a square cross tube. This difference is primarily an aesthetic difference since both of these hitches have the same towing capacities. Another difference between the two hitches is how it attaches to the frame of your 2006 Jeep TJ. I attached a picture that shows the different mounting methods each hitch has.

It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If the ball mount kit does not have the right rise or drop to tow the trailer...

  • There is a Class III 2" hitch that is a fit for your 1997 Jeep Wrangler, but that guy # 76104 won't work. Instead I recommend the Curt # 13408, which has a maximum tongue weight capacity of 400 lbs and max towing capacity of 4,000 lbs. It is a bolt-on installation so no drilling will be required. For wiring to add a 4-way you need the Hopkins # HM42605 which is a plug-in connector so you will not need to do any type of splicing. If you are going to be towing, I recommend checking out...

  • Curt Hitch #13408 Replacement Hardware Recommendation
  • Replacement hardware is available. You will need part # RHK. Once on the product page, just type in the Hitch Item Number in the box on the right. Then use the pull down menu below that to select the manufacturer. Then just click the Add to Cart button and you will be done. Hitch hardware is one-only. So you if you are trying to install this hitch on a second vehicle you would want to use all new hardware.

  • Can a 1997 Jeep TJ Handle 2,500 Pounds Gross Trailer Weight to Tow ATVs and Gear
  • You will want to check the owners manual of the 1997 Jeep TJ for the official towing capacities but I am fairly certain it can handle 2,500 pounds of gross trailer weight. What you will want to add is a transmission cooler since you will be towing in the mountains. The extra weight of the trailer and items in it combined with the hilly mountainous terrain will put a lot of stress on the transmission.
