Will Curt Trailer Hitch 13408 Fit a 2006 Jeep Wrangler with Factory Gas Tank Armor


Will hitch 13408 fit a 2006 Wrangler with factory metal gas tank armor?

Curt trailer hitch # 13408 does not exclude models of the 2006 Jeep Wrangler with the factory gas tank armor you have. It does not fit Unlimited models though. But what I recommend is taking a look at the linked instructions as well as installation videos on the page and compare those to your Jeep to ensure fit.

If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not have the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, use the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

And for trailer wiring you can use Tekonsha harness # 118409 to add a 4-Way flat connector to the rear of your Jeep. I have linked a video showing how the wiring installs as well.
