Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Jeep Liberty

Today we are going to install part number 13044 from Curt, and we are going to install this Class III receiver hitch on a 2006 Jeep Liberty. We will show you where the hitch mounts up. It is going to mount up along three holes in the frame here, here and here. And this has a skid shield in place. Your vehicle may not have the skid shield, so it is going to have the empty three holes. And it is going to be the same thing on the other side. In this case, this actually comes down with a recovery hook that is in place. This whole piece and assembly will actually have to come down and stay off when the hitch is installed. Again, there are three bolts on each side behind this hook, too, just like on the passengers side.

All right, just to show you, we have the hitch in position with the heat shield, to give you an idea of what is going on. And we are going to take this one whole assembly and install it on the vehicle. Now we did have to flex this bar in Im sorry, we had to flex in this part of the plate to get enough clearance to line up our holes so we could get a bolt through. You may have to do that, you may not its just individual to each vehicle. With the bolts snugged down, go ahead and tighten them down to their proper torque, as specified in the instructions. And with that, that finishes our install of part number 13044 on our 2006 Jeep Liberty.

I ordered this for my 2007 Jeep Liberty. The package was mailed to my APO address and arrived quickly. The box didn't make it too good, but the bolts and other things were taped very well to the hitch itself and were in good shape. I wasn't expecting a box to hold a heavy hitch very well, but it made it ok. The main advantage was it was able to be mailed to my APO address. The hitch mounted very easily. I did it by myself, so I got a box and put the hitch on it and got one side started with a bolt and then went to the other side. It went up easy. It fit perfectly and was mounted in about 30 minutes including the time to clean out the threads in the car frame. I am very very happy with the hitch and would suggest it to anyone that is looking for one. etrailer was absolutely excellent in their service. One note!!! Make sure you get a 12mm course threat Tap (M12x1.75) to clean out the old rusted out threads that you are mounting the hitch to. I read that advice in a review and it was very very good info. I would have had a very hard time getting the bolts started without cleaning the threads out first. 421270

Everything arrived as expected, although the box did have a nice sized hole where one side of the hitch had broken through. The hitch itself was not damaged though. The bolts that came with the kit were the correct size, however they were colored (goldish tint) like a grade 8 bolt, but did not have the grade 8 markings on the heads. I went to the store and replaced them with known grade 8 bolts. Fitment was spot on, with no issues with bolt holes not lining up. I was quite pleased with how almost the complete hitch is hidden; the only part you see is the receiver itself. Nice! Overall, I'm very pleased... Suggestions: 1) My Liberty did not have the factory fuel tank skidplate, therefore there were no bolts in the existing mounting holes. This along with 5 years of salty winters made for some work with a tap to clean the threads out before installation. Like other's that had similar reviews, if this scenario fits, go ahead and source a 12mm coarse thread tap ahead of time. The passenger-side-forward mounting bolt is directly above the exhaust...it's tricky to get to with a long tap. 2) The hitch itself is heavy and awkward; a second set of hands is almost mandatory. 112659

Hitch arrived at 3:23 pm. I arrived home at 4:42 pm and it installed by myself at 5:12 pm. Exhaust pipe got in the way of the last bolt on right side but able tighten with wrench. Will need to take tire off to torque correctly. I do have one suggestion, that being that the safety chain location should be moved forward as much as possible. As you it is directly over the pin and clip location which makes it cramped for a locking pin and safety chains. 604923

Perfect fit and install was a breeze. I was worried about parts being missing when I saw the condition the box came in. To my surprise the packer at etrailer had taped all the parts directly to the hitch so turned out to be no problem. The hitch looks great or I should say what you can see of it, because it is hidden well. Thanks again for everything and I will definatly be a lifelong customer. 154918

I read the reviews and learned to tap out the holes before starting. Unfortunately the tap and die kit that I got had the regular long handle and the gas tank got in the way. After doing a few of them and taking a break I got creative and hammered the 12m 1.75 tap into a torx socket. Things went smoother after that until I had to put the last bolt in. No matter how I tried and tried to line them all up it wouldn't work right. After 15 minutes or so of struggling I was able to use the gas tank as a prop to get the last one close enough to get the blot started and tightened it the best I could. I am only using it to haul some landscaping thins in from time to time and I believe it should be fine. Otherwise I would have returned it and gotten one that lined up correctly. 139924

Comments

Check to make sure the weld-nuts are really clean first. Most of the times we get feedback about bolts being to large, the problem is actually corrosion and debris built up in the weld-nuts. Mistakes do happen and sometimes the wrong bolts are packaged. But making sure the weld-nuts are clean is the best first step. Re-sending the same properly sized bolts still wont work if the nuts are dirty or corroded.

30 minutes and you can tow anything. If your jeep is not new off the show room floor make sure to have a tap set near by. The bolt holes are going to need a good clean out. 77897

Quality product. It took a little persuasion to make it fit around the gas tank guard on my 2003 Jeep Liberty, but it worked. The shape of the shield wouldn't allow the holes to line up so i bent the shield a little to make it work. Not easy, but that's expected with aftermarket parts sometimes. Excellent service from etrailer -they upgraded my already free shipping and my entire order arrived in 3 days! 67009

This is a great product and was sent very quickly. I installed this on a 2006 Jeep Liberty. I would recommend that before you start installing, that you get yourself a M12x1.75 tap for the factory receiving nuts under the vehicle. Mine were rusty and I could not have installed this without one. In order to get the tap into the front right nut, I had to move the exhaust out of the way which meant I had to pull off the rubber mounting bracket. This wasn't easy but I eventually got it to slide off with oil, channel locks, a screw driver, and some creativity. Getting it back on was much easier than getting it off but that took more time than everything else combined. Once I had access and got the nuts tapped, the intallation was a breeze and it looks great. 62352

I just received the hitch for a 2006 Jeep liberty. It came undamaged with bolts and washers well packaged. You tube video was very informative. All bolt holes lined up & screwed in perfectly and the product is very well built with good welds and good powder coated finish. The shipping was quick and communication immediate. Watch out for the existing 18 mm bolts on frame; weird size ! 42241

Bolt holes line up well. I had a heckuva time getting the bolts in. It's hard to know if that is because the welded in nuts have just "swollen" from corrosion and this was the difficultly or if the included bolts in the kit are ever so slightly oversized or something. 31902

The product came well packaged and just as expected. The installation was for a Jeep '06 Liberty and the fit was perfect. It looks great; only the receiver itself is visible. The only real delay was due to the holes in the frame being VERY dirty and that's not etrailer's fault :) I thought the bolts were too big at first but they were correct; there was just that much crud in the holes. The install would have been as estimated but the cleaning took me a couple of hours because of my limited tools. This wasn't the case on my other vehicle's install (only 30 minutes) but plan for it just in case. Customer service is outstanding. This was my second receiver purchased at etrailer and I will be back...great shopping experience. 26591

I liked the quality of the product that I receiveed the only issue that I had was when the box was delivered the trailer hitch was protruding through the bottom of the box.

  • Recommended 7-Way Wiring for 2005 Jeep Liberty without Tow Package
  • We do have what you need to install a fully-functional 7-Way on your Jeep Liberty, however there is not a direct plug-and-play option like what you are looking for that would allow you to plug your existing 7-Way to a factory port on your vehicle. In order to install a 7-Way, you will want to start by adding a 4-Way connector. I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118524.
