Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Jeep Liberty

Today were working on a 2012 Jeep Liberty we're going to install hidden hitch part number 87450. This would be comparable to Draw-tite part number 75578. Here are a couple of measurements that will assist you in selecting accessories from the new hitch such as a draw bar, a bike rack, or a cargo carrier. The center of the hitch pinhole is even with the outermost point of the bumper, from the top of the receiver tube to the ground is 19 inches. This will assist you in selecting accessories. Now lets go ahead with the installation, our first step is were gonna point out the attachment points here on the driver side, this will be identical on the passenger side with the exception of the forward attachment point on the driver side and well need to remove the bolt pulling the brace to the rear suspension.

We now have access to the 3 attachment points which are weld nuts in the frame here on the driver side. Over time the threads on the weld nuts will become gummed up with dirt, dust, and debris so its recommended to spray them out with a little spray lubricant and then well clean them out with a half inch nylon toothbrush. Then I like to take my fastener and go ahead and thread it in just to make sure its gonna go nice and easily if it will go in by hand we know we can go ahead and install our hitch in this fastening point. Ill go ahead and repeat the same process for other 3 fastening points. Were now ready to go ahead and install our hitch.

Well be using the bolt and the conkle tooth washer that are supplied in our install kit, the teeth of the washer will face the hitch. Its a good time to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch in place while you install your fasteners. On our forward attachment points well smash the bracket between the frame and the hitch as we install it. Once all each of our fastener is finger tight until we get them all in place, each process we do here on the driver side well repeat it identically on the passenger side. Now with all of our fasteners in well go ahead and tighten them down.

With all of our fasteners tighten down we can go ahead and torque to specification as indicated in the instructions. With that it completes the install of our hidden hitch part number 87450 on our 2012 jeep liberty.

The folks at etrailer are very frendly, helpfull and knowlegable about their products. The instructions that come with the hitch and wire harness made the install very simple and were easy to follow. Ive never seen faster shipping, made me wonder if the warehouse was around the corner. I was very satisfied with the entire transaction from order to install and would do it again. Thanks Gary 61950

2008 Jeep liberty, Received product fast, Fit in just the way the video shows, An impact driver should be used but I don't have one. I used hand tools (Breaker bar and socket) I suggest to use a better cleaner than WD40 (That's what I had) Took 2 hrs to clean and chase the threads and 10 Minutes to install. I also bought the wiring (118554), but it was raining and that's another day. Video looks like it covers the bases. 42569

GREAT BUY Overall great buy. One issue with install on a Jeep Liberty you have to remove a factory bolt inorder to install the hitch. The problem is this one bolt is lock sold in there. I had to bring the truck to a service station to have them remove the bolt so I could install the hitch. Other than that the hitch is great. 3409

  • Bike Rack Recommendations For 2 Bikes For a 2008 Jeep Liberty
  • We have everything that you will need to add a bike rack to your 2008 Jeep Liberty. The first decision that you will need to make is if you want a trunk mounted bike rack or a hitch mounted bike rack. A trunk mounted bike rack like the Thule Raceway 2 Bike Rack, # TH9001PRO, will attach to your vehicle using 4 retractable cables that attach to the top and bottom edges of your rear hatch and it has rubber pads that sit on your rear hatch to support the rack. I have also attached a link...

  • Trailer Hitch, Wiring, and Brake Controller Recommendations for a 2008 Jeep Liberty
  • If installed correctly the Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness for the 2008 Liberty by Jeep, part # 118554, you should not have to worry about damaging the electronics. This converter only uses the vehicles signal inputs as switches, and the actual power output to the trailer comes directly from the vehicle battery. The converter is designed to only draw 5 mili-amps and is designed to protect your vehicles sensitive circuitry. I've included installation directions in a link below. We offer...

  • Installation of the Hidden Hitch 87450 on a 2012 Jeep Liberty Sport
  • Good news, I can help you figure out how the Hidden Hitch # 87450 will mount on your 2012 Jeep Liberty Sport. You are correct, if the hitch has to protrude then the more economically priced Curt hitch # 13245 will be a good solution for your Liberty. I've attached some image of the Hidden Hitch mounted on the 2012 Jeep Liberty for you to take a look at. The hitch does stick out from underneath the vehicle quite a bit, unlike the one on your Grand Cherokee. While it isn't very attractive...

  • Recommended Hitch, Trailer Wiring and Brake Controller for 2008 Jeep Liberty
  • If the available hitch alternatives for your Liberty, I'd recommend the Curt Class III hitch, part # 13245. All the Class III hitches for you Liberty have the same capacity and would install in the same manner. Because the quality of the Curt hitch is on the same level as the other hitches, you won't sacrifice anything by going with the lower cost Curt hitch. For trailer wiring, I'd recommend the Tow Ready # 118554, which would provide a 4-pole trailer connector. This will provide you...

  • Can Trailer Hitch Be Moved From 2008 Jeep Liberty to 2010 Model
  • The 2008 and the 2010 Jeep Liberty are of the second generation, so the hitch from your 2008 will fit the 2010 model. Keep in mind that the installation hardware is meant to only be used once, so to install the hitch on your 2010 Liberty, you'll want all new hardware. We offer replacement hitch installation hardware as part # RHK. On the product page, you'll type in the part number of your hitch, and then from the drop down menu, you'll choose the name of the hitch manufacturer. The...
