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.

Directions failed to show a bracket mounted on my stock 2021 Wrangler Rubicon that blocked the outer 2 holes. I was able to remove the 2 bolts(that are a different thread then the ones that came with the hitch), and loosened two lower screws attaching the bracket to the bottom of the bumper so I could fit hitch between the stock bracket and the frame. I was able to use the two stock bolts (not sure if they are long enough, but I was able to tighten them down) and attached the two middle bolts that came with the hitch. I reattached the lower bumper screws, and everything seems good! I'm only using my hitch for a bike rack, so I feel safe, and will re-check all fasteners after a few short trips...After reading the directions I initially thought I would not be able to mount the hitch on my jeep, but thought I'd give a heads up to any 2021 Rubicon owners who are looking at this hitch... 915883

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

Nothing much I can complain about here. It works as it should, and the instructions were decent. The wires were all long enough. The zip ties were a little on the cheap side, but that's pretty insignificant. I found that the factory wiring connectors which had to be unplugged were difficult to unplug. You're supposed to slide a red piece, then push down on the black "lever" to disengage the latch. Pushing down on the black lever wasn't enough, and I had to slide a small screwdriver in there to unlatch it. Once I did that, the two halves of the connector were easy to separate. One of the early steps is removing two plastic interior trim pieces which cover the bolt which holds the tail lights in place. The latch/clip which holds the trim piece in place broke off when I removed the trim piece. I had to use a dab of hot glue when I reassembled everything. I don't know if more detailed instructions could have prevented that or not. 739481

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Hitch

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 2020 Jeep Wrangler Bike Rack For 2 Fat Tire Ebikes
    The 2-Bike rack for bikes with fat tires (up to 5") with the best carrying capacity is the Saris # SA4412B-FB Freedom Platform Rack, supporting 2 bikes weighing 60 pounds each. I realize this is not quite the 2 X 65 pound bikes that you have, but you can remove the batteries when in transit. This rack has a lot of clearance away from the back of the Jeep to allow for your rear mounted standard spare tire. I especially like the three point firm hold this rack has on the bikes. This rack...
