Best Trailer Hitch Receiver and Other Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer with a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Sahara

Question:

I have a 2016 anniversary edition Sahara with the steel bumpers. Which Draw-tite hitch would be best #76104 or 75515. What if any would be the difference. I would also like to install the proper 4 pole wire harness so please point me in the right direction there also.

The best trailer hitch receiver for your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Sahara is Draw-Tite # 76104. This actually replaced the 75514. I've linked a video of the install for you.

The wiring harness I recommend is the # 118416. This will provide the 4-way trailer connector. It plugs in behind the driver's side tail light.

You'll also need a ball mount and hitch ball. I've attached link of our selection of ball mounts for a 2 inch hitch receiver as well as an article to help you determine the correct rise or drop you may need. Once you choose a ball mount you can then choose a hitch ball to fit it.

One way to make choosing a ball mount easier is to go with an adjustable ball mount like the B&W Tow & Stow # BWTS10038B. It features the ability to be flipped under the hitch when not using it and will provide up to 5-1/2 inches of rise or 5 inches of drop.

For a pin and clip to fit you can use # PC3 or if you'd like to have a locking pin you can use # BWTS51234.

I've also included links to some articles on towing that you might find helpful.
