1995 Jeep Wrangler

The hitch arrived on time as expected and fit my jeep exactly as the directions and video detailed. I reused the bumper guards with the hitch. I have ordered numerous hitch's from etrailer and have been completely satisfied every time.

I am completely satisfied with this hitch purchase as I have been with all my other past purchases.All your products are exactly as advertised and the instructional videos are great.
Charlie H - 08/17/2015
Charlie, did you use the bolts that came with the hitch or did you have to get your own longer ones when adding the bumper guards? Thanks for the advice.

1995 Jeep Wrangler

Very well made, excellent paint. Installation was fairly easy, had to install 4 nuts up inside bumper frame, a little challenging, but not impossible. Heavy duty hitch, looks good and should do the job for me.

Hitch still looks new after winter driving and works good.

1994 Jeep Wrangler

Shipping was on time and the tracking email was much appreciated. Box was damaged in shipping and powder coat or paint was chipped off on exposed section. UPS's fault. No biggie since it will probably get worse just being mounted. I followed the directions and the video and soaked the 7/16" bolt holes with penetrating oil for about 10 minutes. I then scrubbed out the holes with a small bottle brush. I threaded the bolts as much as I could by hand and then used the ratchet and screwed it in about halfway. I then removed the bolts and mounted the hitch. It went on fairly easy but the 7/16" bolts never felt right. I couldn't get the torque past 45 ft. lbs. because it felt like it would keep spinning. I bought this to use my bike rack so I'm not too concerned. Hitch gets 3 stars but I give etrailer 5.


As always etrailers was great! the product arrived on time and was as described. the installation video on the website made the install pretty easy. The video was lacking and the positioning of four of the bolts was almost impossible to get to. also be careful not to drop sockets and nuts in the gas tank skid plate (lost two nuts and socket). all and all it wasn't bad and probably had the job done in a little under an hour. i would suggest this product to anyone looking for a hitch for a yj. its not pretty but it does get the job done.

1995 Jeep Wrangler

I have been a customer of etrailer for many years and will continue to be a customer for many more. I purchased the curt hitch for my 1995 Jeep Wrangler, no problem fits great and looks great! Shipping was on time as usual.


I recieved my trailer hitch today by ups. I unpacked it and was very pleased with the quality and the look of the hitch. I took my time, did'nt hurry, and within a hour the hitch was installed. The hitch fit perfectly, everything lined up great. I have large hands, so i used needle nose vise grips to reach in to install some of the nuts, i included a picture of them, worked great ! when i ordered the hitch, i made a goof, so i called and Janice cancelled that order and helped me do another, she was very friendly & helpful. thanks!!!!!


Very nice quality product, mounting holes lined up well and supplied hardware was quality.

1989 Jeep YJ

Fits perfectly and easy to install (especially with a 3" body lift).

I opted to put the original bumpers on with the hitch. Photo attached.

1992 Jeep YJ

This hitch was just what I needed. Quick and easy one man install! Great quality for the price. Now I can use my cargo carrier to haul things like my little minibike! Thanks

1987 Jeep YJ

Very happy with the service and the items!! Will be purchasing from you again shortly.
Attached is a picture of the hitch I purchased.

1987 Jeep Wrangler

This is a very nice trailer hitch. It mounts very easily on a 87 Jeep Wrangler. The holes are in the right place, it was easy to put on, less than 30 minutes required, and is much stronger than the rear frame member it is attached to, what passes for a bumper on old Jeeps. It was shipped very quickly, and packed very well. I could not be happier.

No pictures required, it looks just like the video.

A year later and the hitch is working perfectly for me. It is much stronger than the rust bucket Jeep, pulls my trailer, wood splitter, and drags trees out of the woods to where I can cut them up. Strong, trouble free. I am very happy.
Ken L - 10/24/2014


Great product, looks good on Jeep and towed a trailer really well. Took a little longer to put on, you have to have a swivel socket to put the inside nuts on. Out side nuts and bolts was a breeze to put on and the bottom nuts went just as easy.

Great product, I have told many of my friends about where I bought it at.
James H - 07/08/2015

Jeep Wrangler

this has been a very good hitch, towing a 2500 pound boat motor And trailer rig
with 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.

1995 Jeep Wrangler

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.


Great Hitch. One issue that Curt might want to address is that the fitment for this hitch was supposed to be a direct bolt on but I had to make some spacers to move the hitch away from the sub frame because the lower tabs would not line up to the frame holes. It great hitch being using to tow a small trailer.


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.

1995 Jeep YJ

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


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.

1989 Jeep Wrangler

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.


Trailer hitch for husband's jeepMy 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!)

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"

1987 Jeep Wrangler

I installed my new hitch on my 87 weangler today, pretty easy to
install, I even put the stock bumperetts back on. You know how people can't park very well so the bumperetts help protect your
vehicle 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 to
install. I hope this will be helpfull.

1989 Jeep Wrangler

The hitch was perfect and exactly what I was looking for I was able to put the bumperettes back on. Easy installation and had a nice finish coat to it. The hitch looks great and your emails to make sure I was updated was also great I will recommend you to everyone I know looking for trailer parts your second to none in ordering parts Thank You very much Joe Ciavattone


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!


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.

  • Can Factory D-Rings Be Installed Over the Curt Hitch 13567 on a 1995 Jeep Wrangler
    If you have a set of D-rings that are currently installed where the Curt Hitch part # 13657 would install on your 1995 Jeep Wrangler you could install them over the mounting bracket of the hitch as long as you got the appropriate length Grade 5 or higher bolt to replace the hitch's install bolts.

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for a 1993 Jeep Wrangler
    The front hitch part # 13657 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 1993 Jeep Wrangler. This hitch installs by utilizing existing holes in the vehicle frame. Since it does not require any bumper modification for installation there would be no reason your factory bumpers couldn't be retained. Several people who have installed this hitch have commented and said they were able to keep their bumpers like you mentioned. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Rear Bumper for 1993 Jeep YJ with Curt Hitch Already Installed
    Based on how the Curt Class III Hitch Receiver # 13657 mounts to your 1993 Jeep YJ, we don't have a rear bumper available that can be installed with the hitch in place without some significant modifications. All of the aftermarket bumpers we have for the YJ though include their own integrated 2" receiver, such as with the Rampage # RA7648, so your best option may be to simply remove the existing hitch altogether if you are wanting to add a bumper like this. I have attached the complete...

    The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch, # 24557, is rated for a maximum tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs and a maximum towing capacity of 2,000 lbs. You should not experience problems when towing, assuming the tongue weight of your trailer will not exceed the 200 lbs and the total weight of the trailer will not exceed 2,000 lbs, but personally, I would be leery of towing a trailer at the maximum capacities of your trailer hitch.

  • Can a 350 Pound Motorcycle be Carried on the Back of a 1995 Jeep Wrangler
    Curt trailer hitch # 13657 for your 1995 Jeep Wrangler (YJ) has a tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds. The capacity only goes up to 400 pounds when towing a trailer and using weight distribution. So for hitch mounted accessories the hitch tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds it what you will need to go by. If the combined weight of the bike and carrier is over 350 pounds then you will not be able to carry the bike on the Jeep with a hitch mounted carrier. You would instead need to put...

The Curt is a Class III hitch that has a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs, tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs, and more importantly, a 2" receiver opening.
