Trailer Hitch with Easiest Installation for 2018 Jeep Compass New Body Style

Question:

2018 jeep compass with vin T Will this install without the mods of heat shield and exhaust hangar like other model hitches?

Expert Reply:

The Hidden Hitch Class II Trailer Hitch # 90092 referenced in your question is not designed for your 2018 Jeep Compass and it will not fit its frame rails. This particular hitch is designed for certain model years of the Ford Thunderbird and Lincoln Mark VIII.

For your 2018 Jeep Compass New Body Style (with the letter T as the 11th character in the VIN) your best option for the easiest install is with the Draw-Tite Class III # 76144. For your model Jeep Compass this just requires modification to the hanger bracket for install (unlike other hitch models that also would require removal and trimming of the heat shield).

I have attached an image from the installation manual that details this step just so you can see exactly what it entails.
