etrailer e98835 Hitch Dimensional Diagram

Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability. This unique powder coating gives etrailer hitches a carbide-like appearance and a rugged look that sets them apart from traditional glossy hitches. In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

Quick and easy install for a Wrangler JL. You may need to file some of the factory Jeep welding which doesn't have a consistent bead as others have mentioned. This was installed on a Wrangler JLU and I wished I'd purchased the longer shank version due to where the crossbeam sits and Jeeps having a tailgate spare. This isn't a fault of etrailer and I believe my standard hitch with a 4" drop will still work. I plan to purchase the extended hitch with a 2" drop just to be safe since I'll be towing anything from a utility trailer to a small travel trailer. 635506

Great, affordable alternative to the OEM hitch. Installation was a bit of a task as there is a weld that this hitch has to straddle. Mine had a few burrs that had to be removed beforehand, and still needed a 3lb deadblow to coax her into the correct location. All in all, good value. I actually like the textured matte finish over the gloss black. 578114

Very simple to install. The toughest part was getting the nuts on the bolts as they go between the metal hitch and the plastic bumper. That space is tight. Although the video shows using a hex wrench (I couldn't find my set) I used my fingers and a small crescent wrench and that worked just fine. (I have small fingers) Use the hex wrench. The video I first saw showed removing the muffler from its hangs to allow placing the bolts in the holes. Another video I saw on etrailer did not move the muffler and the bolts placed in the holes. I used the latter process and did not have a problem getting the bolts in the holes. 628289

I ordered a hitch receiver to be installed on my 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited from the place that was installing it, but the one they ordered stuck out about 4” past my bumper. I immediately expressed dissatisfaction with how it looked & pointed out that it was a hazard whenever I open my rear door. I was ecstatic to find this hitch receiver on etrailer.com. I can’t wait for it to be installed tomorrow. Thank you etrailer.com. 533785

I just purchased a new 2020 Jeep Wrangler JL sport and was in need of a good quality hitch. Etrailer has exactly what I needed. They processed my order very quickly and within a few days it was here. I’ll mount the hitch up this weekend and give a more in-depth review at a later time. Thanks Etrailer. 826251

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Hitch

  • Best Bike Rack for 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    I can help you find the best bike rack for your 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, and can say without equivocation that a hitch-mounted bike rack is absolutely the best option because they provide the best stability and security for your bikes. The only thing you need to know is the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of your spare tire to get the correct bike rack. For example, when we installed Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98856 on a 2019 Wrangler Unlimited we found...

  • Difference Between etrailer Branded Class III Trailer Hitches for 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    There's a subtle yet important difference between the two. The receiver tube on the # e98856 is right at 3 inches longer than that of the # e98835. This means that most hitch mounted accessories such as bike racks or cargo carrying trays will clear a stock sized spare tire, which is a great feature. There's not much of a price differential between the two, so there's not much reason not to get the # e98856 with the longer tube. As far as strength goes, the hitches actually tie into the...

  • Front Mounted Receiver Hitch for 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    We sure do! I'd recommend the Curt # C31086 front mount receiver. If your Jeep has a steel skid shield up front, it will need to be permanently removed in order to install the hitch. The etrailer brand rear hitch you'd looked at, part # e98835 is compatible with your Wrangler Unlimited, but if you're using the hitch for accessories like a bike rack, I'd recommend you go with the # e98856 because it has a longer receiver tube so your hitch mounted accessory will sit further back and...

  • Dimension of Frame that etrailer.com Trailer Hitch for Jeep Wranglers Fits
    The etrailer.com trailer hitch # E98835 fits a frame that's right at 3-1/4 inches wide. It's specifically designed to fit on a Jeep Wranger JK and JL both the 2-door and Unlimited styles from 2007 to 2020 as long as the Jeep has a standard rear bumper. I've linked the install details as well as an install video for you.

  • Parts Needed to Install 7-way and 4-Way in 2020 Jeep Wrangler
    You will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # 118786. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC7. I attached installation instructions and an install video for this product as well. If you don't have trailer brakes you'd just want the # 37185 instead. For a brake controller I would recommend...

  • Difference Between Curt and etrailer Trailer Hitch Receivers for 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    There is a small difference between the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13432 and etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98835 that fits your 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, which is just the finish. The Curt trailer hitch has a glossy black finish while the etrailer hitch has a matte black finish but other than that everything is equal, including their 3,500 lb towing/350 lb tongue weight capacities, as well as how both hitches install. The two have crosstubes which are hidden, meaning only...
