Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 1995 Jeep Wrangler - Curt

Today on our 1995 Jeep Wrangler we're going to be installing the CURT custom fit trailer hitch receiver in the class three 2" version. Part number is 13657. This is what our hitch is going to look like after we've got it installed on our Wrangler. A few measurements to keep in mind: From the center of the hitch pinhole towards the front of the car towards the steel bumper we're looking at about 3-1/2". From the center of the hitch pinhole out to the edge of our tire, which is a P215/75R15, we're looking at about 6-1/2". From the ground to the inner edge of the top tube of our receiver hitch opening we're looking at about 15".

These are important when choosing the accessories, such as a ball mount, bike rack, or hitch cargo carrier. I just want to go over and show you the hardware and a few of the tools that we might need. We're going to have our 7/16" bolts and the conical tooth washers that are made to fit right on those. Those will go on the underside of our bumper and they'll be threaded up in. We're going to have eight 3/8" bolts. We're going to have eight 3/8" washers and eight 3/8" flange nuts.

These are all four our original factory mounting holes on the rear. We've got a ratchet, just a standard opened-end box wrench. We may need an extension. We're not there yet; we don't know. We've got deep well and short well sockets.

We may need a tap for the very bottom holes. Then if it's hard to get to we've also get a little swivel head socket here. We may need it, we may not. We'll just see when we get there and see what we have to do. Now that we've gone over our hardware let's go ahead and head over to the Jeep and get started. Now to begin our installing we need to remove our factory bumper rings.

There are four bolts located two on each side of each of our ring. Now these are threaded through our main bumper into some nuts on the backside so we're going to use our socket here on the front. We'll use a wrench on the back to hold those nuts as we turn it. It may be a really good idea for you to use some penetrating oil. Now our fifth connection point on each side's going to be the hole located directly underneath the bumper right in the middle of where our bumper rings we're mounted. I'm going to use a 7/16 tap. The thread pitch is a 14. Just run it up through there. It's going to clear out all that rust and stuff. Now let me grab one of our 7/16 bolts and we're just going to thread it in there just to make sure it's going to in there freely with no issue. Let's go over to the passenger side and we'll get that one taken care of. Now we've got our hitch laid out here behind the Jeep. We're going to take one of our 3/8" bolts and a washer, place that through the hitch. That will go right into our hole, and then a 3/8 flange nut is going to go on the backside here. Thread it on there. Just needs to be loose for now. We're still going to rotate the other half of the hitch up into place. Now let's get our other six bolts put in. Now that we've got all eight of our 3/8 bolts installed let's grab our 7/16 bolts. We'll place on a conical tooth washer. As you can see, the teeth of that washer are going to be facing in towards the vehicle. Let's head on over to the other side and put our other 7/16 bolt in. Now we'll move onto our 3/8 fasteners here and get these all cinched down. We need to refer to our manufacturer's instructions and get them torqued down properly. That will complete today's look at the CURT custom fit trailer hitch receiver, part number 13657, on our 1995 Jeep Wrangler. .

This receiver is entirely satisfactory. The problems encountered were not with the product, but rather involved rusted up threads in the mounting points on the frame - extensive cleanout and rethreading finally completed the installation. 504496

Very well made, excellent paint. Installation was fairly easy, had to install 4 nuts up inside bumper frame, a little challenging, but not impossible. Heavy duty hitch, looks good and should do the job for me. 394103

this has been a very good hitch, towing a 2500 pound boat motor And trailer rig with my older jeep wrangler, and the light hook up was very simple and straight forward , very good clear instructions It takes less than an hour and a half to put it on, and another 30 minutes to attach the wiring harness no big deal, nothing tricky about it. My budget is limited so this was a life saver as well as money saver, thankyou for your products I will be buying more. Joel 321376

The bolts for the bottom didn't seem to fit, so I used the 2 of the other 8 for the bottom holes. So I was left 2 bolts short. Thought about drilling the bottom holes out, but the smaller bolts seemed to fit perfect ?!? The wiring harness that I got with it requires me to split the tail lights, should have gotten a harness that I could just plug in. 266399

Fit like a glove. The two 7/16-14 bolts on the underside needed to be cleaned and tapped out as they were never used and 21 years of driving left the holes a tad clogged. Suggest having a thread reamer or tap for those 2 underside holes . The threaded holes on the face were already being used for the U bumpers , no problem ,remove and put in new bolts provided to mount hitch. I have made several purchases from E-trailer over the last five or six years, all of them had one thing in common, PLEASE THE CUSTOMER. I,ll still shop around towing stuff, but it always comes back to these guys 238015

Product was as described and installation was just as described. Even put the hoop bumpers back on and you hardly notice the hitch. Also was able to use the bolts that came with the hitch and did not need longer ones to reuse the bumpers. Great experience all round with E-Trailer and will use them again. 185471

You Guys are on top of it. I haven't even opened my box yet but it got here before I expected. I am confident that it will all be there. Thanks Ron 177470

by:
1994 Jeep Wrangler

Shipping was on time and the tracking email was much appreciated. Box was damaged in shipping and powder coat or paint was chipped off on exposed section. UPS's fault. No biggie since it will probably get worse just being mounted. I followed the directions and the video and soaked the 7/16" bolt holes with penetrating oil for about 10 minutes. I then scrubbed out the holes with a small bottle brush. I threaded the bolts as much as I could by hand and then used the ratchet and screwed it in about halfway. I then removed the bolts and mounted the hitch. It went on fairly easy but the 7/16" bolts never felt right. I couldn't get the torque past 45 ft. lbs. because it felt like it would keep spinning. I bought this to use my bike rack so I'm not too concerned. Hitch gets 3 stars but I give etrailer 5. 177207

Charlie, did you use the bolts that came with the hitch or did you have to get your own longer ones when adding the bumper guards? Thanks for the advice.

Hitch works great. The installation was fairly easy after I needed to cut all the bolts holding the existing bumpers with a grinder on my '88 Jeep Wrangler. E-trailer delivery was fast and someone kept updating me on the shipping progress. 139543

Great product, looks good on Jeep and towed a trailer really well. Took a little longer to put on, you have to have a swivel socket to put the inside nuts on. Out side nuts and bolts was a breeze to put on and the bottom nuts went just as easy. 139217

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Can a 350 Pound Motorcycle be Carried on the Back of a 1995 Jeep Wrangler
  • Curt trailer hitch # 13657 for your 1995 Jeep Wrangler (YJ) has a tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds. The capacity only goes up to 400 pounds when towing a trailer and using weight distribution. So for hitch mounted accessories the hitch tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds it what you will need to go by. If the combined weight of the bike and carrier is over 350 pounds then you will not be able to carry the bike on the Jeep with a hitch mounted carrier. You would instead need to...

  • The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch, # 24557, is rated for a maximum tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs and a maximum towing capacity of 2,000 lbs. You should not experience problems when towing, assuming the tongue weight of your trailer will not exceed the 200 lbs and the total weight of the trailer will not exceed 2,000 lbs, but personally, I would be leery of towing a trailer at the maximum capacities of your trailer hitch. This does not leave any room for additional cargo and...

Other sites may not know that the 1989 Wrangler and the 1989 YJ are the same vehicle. Not everyone knows the Jeep terms and models and we actually put both in our fit guide to mitigate confusion on fit.

  • I do have a hitch that will fit your 1990 Jeep Wrangler YJ, but the item you selected, Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 75054 will not fit. For a Class III 2 Inch hitch like part # 75054, for your Jeep, you will need the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # 13657. The Draw-Tite hitch # 75054 that you selected is designed to fit 1984-2001 Jeep Cherokee, and the 1984 Jeep Wagoneer Downsize. To complete your towing setup you will need the following items: Ball Mount, part # 2923 1-7/8 Inch...

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for a 1993 Jeep Wrangler
  • The front hitch part # 13657 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 1993 Jeep Wrangler. This hitch installs by utilizing existing holes in the vehicle frame. Since it does not require any bumper modification for installation there would be no reason your factory bumpers couldn't be retained. Several people who have installed this hitch have commented and said they were able to keep their bumpers like you mentioned. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Is it Possible to Tow With 1-5/8
  • The best solution for you is going to be simply replacing that hitch with a new one, the Curt # 13657, which is a fit for '92 YJ's with the exception of Renegade models. The Curt is a Class III hitch that has a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs, tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs, and more importantly, a 2" receiver opening. To complete your towing setup you would want a 4-flat trailer connector # 118356, ball mount # C45030, 2" hitch ball # 63845 and pin and clip # C21500. I've added...

  • If you have a set of D-rings that are currently installed where the Curt Hitch part # 13657 would install on your 1995 Jeep Wrangler you could install them over the mounting bracket of the hitch as long as you got the appropriate length Grade 5 or higher bolt to replace the hitch's install bolts.

I have linked a video showing an example installation of this hitch for you. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with...

This harness includes a circuit tester to help determine the wire functions on your Jeep and find the correct wires.
