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.

1994 Jeep YJ

Installed on my 94 Wrangler. Impressed with the quality. Beautiful welds. Installed with no issues. But may I suggest you clean up the 7/16 [bottom] bolt holes in your frame with a tap and some lubricant. Mine were never used prior and had some rust. And they are captured with no access from behind, so you have to get this right.

1995 Jeep Wrangler

It mounted up perfect on my 95 jeep wrangler it took me a total about 30 minutes to install I’m very pleased


Solid hitch, quick and easy to install

1991 Jeep Wrangler

i had to rem out the holds on the jeep they didn't line up and made them larger to 1/2 " in stead of 3/8 for a hitch. the bolts looked to small i went to get 1/2". it was heavy so it should be well build, the welds looked good. the power coating was excellent to me.i would go with next size for 1/2" bolts size,it might give you a little extra room for adjustment. THANK YOU !!

Thank you for the review! It sounds like your hitch got flexed in transit. I attached an article with tips and tricks on how to straighten out a bent or flexed hitch. I hope this helps!
-- Etrailer Expert Brooke M - 09/14/2021


As expected and was an easy install, granted my fuel tank was already removed during a restoration. So access to 4 of the bolts was much easier.


Well made, solid hitch. Drilled for perfect fit using existing holes making this a very easy install. Highly recommended.


Easy in stall, put factory bumper nubs back on. I like the product.

No problems at all, thumbs up here

very fast shipping nice welds perfect for my needs


Good strong number. Fast shipping. Very happy.

Darlene - 05/07/2021


Install was a bit painful due to the way the Jeep bumperettes bolt to the rear frame with poor access to the bolt heads, but that's not the receiver's fault. Once installed, it's been perfect for hauling bikes and towing a small utility trailer. No flexing or other issues.


Eady to install on my '90 Jeep Wrangler

1995 Jeep Wrangler

The Jeep Wrangler hitch ordered was just received and has not yet been installed although it seems it will be a perfect fit and was packed with the highest of quality and thoughtfulness! Received in perfect condition and was manufactured with highest degree of precision!


Easy to order looks great bolt holes lined right up and I have used it several times a GREAT product at a great price I would definitely recommend this product.


Trailer hitch for husband's jeep My husband recently purchased a 1993 Jeep as a weekend toy. It did not have a hitch for him to haulk his other toy (4-wheeler and trailer). After looking at several choices, I purchased a class III hitch and wiring system for him as a Christmas present. I received email confirming my order as well as another email letting me know that it had been shipped.The item arrived QUICKLY and was packaged securely. The installation was just as easy as described. Wiring details were a breeze. Excellent product and service from a company that I purchase from again!! (Husband is already looking for a cargo carrier as a Valentine's Day gift!)

Jeep Wrangler

this has been a very good hitch, towing a 2500 pound boat motor And trailer rigwith 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


As indicated, the hitch went on 'without a hitch' other than my hands were too big to get the nuts started, at least I did not have to put a wrench on them once I did manage to get them on. It looks great and I am excited to now have the capability to tow my small utility trailer and perhaps get a bike rack for the hitch. Thanks etrailer, for the fast service and complete shipping.


Product was exactly as advertised. The video made installation quick. The item is made from heavy steel and looks of good quality. The wiring harness installed easily without any problems. I was very pleased with the quick delivery, quality of item and ease of installation. It was a turn-key job. Thanks. I will recommend. I would send a picture, but I had the trailer hitch installed before I thought about doing a before and after picture.

2010 Ford Escape

2nd Hitch I have purchased, 1 for 2010 Escape, 1 for 1989 Jeep. Both fit as advertised, the instructions made the installation quick and simple. Purchased the trailer wiring harness for both, same results, installation videos were great, made the install smooth.Absolutely would recommend to anyone willing to "do it yourself"


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

1990 Jeep Wrangler

EXCEPTIONAL service and product!! I asked for delayed delivery so someone would be there to receive. They couldnt be more accommodating.
I couldnt believe how well it was boxed! All hardware and instructions were included. I had ordered this hitch 2 weeks earlier but had to cancel the next day due to vehicle unavailability. The people could not have been more pleasant and helpful! Re- ordering 2 weeks later was a pleasure as they pulled it up on the screen. This is one professional outfit, folks. Dont even think about going anywhere else!!!


Bumper hitch fits well and easy to install. this unit will allow me to use my bumper insert canoe carrier as well to pull a small trailer.Service is great from Etrailer and installation vidio was a great help to install the hitch.Thanks Etrailer.


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.


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.


I installed my new hitch on my 87 weangler today, pretty easy toinstall, I even put the stock bumperetts back on. You know how people can't park very well so the bumperetts help protect yourvehicle from damage. I used the stock bolts on the top holes and the new longer bolts on the bottom holesbe sure to use the washers provided, it mad it easier toinstall. I hope this will be helpfull.


From the order taken over the phone, to the next day delivery(do they have ESP?), and the install was perfect. Took me 30 minutes and that included removing the bumper rounds. One item of note, I should have chased the threads on the 2 bolts that fasten on the bottom of the hitch. I broke one of those Grade 6 bolts, and had to weld the hole up. No way to extract the broken bolt.Great hitch! Awesome customer service!

  • Will a Bike Rack Mounted on the etrailer Hitch # e98859 be Able to Clear My Rear Bumper on a 1994 YJ
    Since the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98859 installs flush with the bumper of your 1994 Jeep YJ, you will not have any tire clearance issues as long as the shank length of the bike rack is longer than the distance between the center of the hitch's pinhole to the outside edge of your spare tire. With your boat trailer, you shouldn't have an issue unless you have a boat trailer with a boat winch attached to it. One creative way to measure whether you have enough shank length on...

  • Why Doesn't the Bolt on My Etrailer Hitch # e98859 Fit the Bolt Brackets?
    I'm sorry to hear about the trouble that you have with the installation! From the looks of the picture, it looks like the bracket of the # e98859 does not completely line up with the hold on your frame. To fix this issue, one of the best solutions is to readjust the bolt/bracket on the opposite end in order to clear up some room on the hole in the picture. It might take a bit of making small adjustments to get both the bolts to fit the holes. Also, if you are having trouble inserting...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For A 1994 Jeep YJ For Dirt Bike Carrier
    I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98859 for your 1994 Jeep YJ. I like this hitch because once the hitch is installed it has a hidden design. The hitch has a bolt-on installation.
