Worked perfectly. I took off bumper on my Jeep instead of drilling a hole in bumper which made more work out of the prodject, but that was my personal choice. The hitch is top quality. I have no complaints after one year!




by:
2022 Jeep Gladiator

Everything came on time and as expected. I watched a couple of utube videos on installation and decided not to drill a hole in the plastic bumper. I removed the bumper and installed the hitch receiver then reinstalled the bumper. It gives it a much cleaner look. The bumper is only 6 bolts and three wire harness to remove. Looks great and is vey solid.




by:
2022 Jeep Gladiator

Would have given 5 star but the directions were bad. On my gladiator I had to remove 2 bolts blocking tube and use a screw driver thru bolt hole to lift wire to guide over remaining blockage. Was not bad after I figured that out but would of saved time if directions were better.




by:

Came in quick and installed perfectly. Definitely just take 2 bolts and 4 nuts off and remove bumper so you don’t have to cut hole in plastic bumper cover.




by:

My dealership screwed me over on my order, and I got my vehicle without a hitch, which I requested! So I ordered this item and it was just too difficult to deal with fishing items through. Ughh! I paid the $300 for shop to install a proper MOPAR hitch.




by:
Dodge Dakota

This is an excellent and well made product! Well worth the cost! And the installation is unbelievably simple!! Mine took about 30 minutes, mostly because I was working alone and had to get up a few times to grab a tool or additional parts out of the box! This is the second hitch I purchased. Went on a Jeep Gladiator. The first one went on a Dodge Dakota. Very pleased with both.




by:

Product bolts right up to the factory mounts on Jeep Gladiator that didn't come with MaxTow options such as the Sport Edition. Manufacturer originally intends for this to be a ball mount through the bumper. Haven't tried to tow anything, but I bought it for a "t-Bone" hitch extender for Kayak hauling. Should work fine.

Side note: this hitch adapter can be installed without cutting a hole in the bumper, but have to remove the bumper to drive in the 1/2" Allen bolt. Another tip would be to leave only 1 thread left on the wire guides so you can seat the carriage bolts into the flat "tube" washer. Once these nuts are ran up almost to the frame by hand, you can pull the wires off and use an impact to drive them up to place and torque.

2020 Jeep Gladiator

As usual, etrailer came through. Free delivery also helpful installation instructions. I'll keep coming back




by:
2021 Jeep Gladiator

The hitch went on with no complaints. It fit well and will work fine. Now need a rubber plug or something to cover the hole in the bumper.




by:

Was very simple and easy to install

Havent had any issues with it... I pull a small trailer all the time and a car trailer every once and a while... Zero issues

Awesome product! Quick delivery and great fit for my 2022 Gladiator! Highly recommend removing bumper and installing without cutting the bumper plastic cover. There are aa couple great videos on doing this is you search.




by:
2020 Jeep Gladiator

Have used etrailer several times and never disappointed.
Hitch was so easy to install Fishing wires make it a breeze. Took about 20 minutes start to finish.




by:
2020 Jeep Gladiator

All hardware was included, and took 20 minutes to install. As advertised.




by:

Was happy with the ease of the install till I got to the main bolt that goes down from the top. It went in easy till it had and a 1/4 to go and it froze up. Backed it out and double checked the thread to make sure it wasn’t cross threading, nope clean as could be, reinserted it, something, only a few twist to go and it stopped again! Would go flush and this time, it won’t come back out!!!




by:

My Jeep gladiator JT was the sport Edition without the max tow package. This means that the most I can tow would be 4500lbs. I had considered purchasing a mopar tow bracket and replacing the entire assembly, but I realized I would never tow anything remotely close to 5K lbs. I will tow smaller 3500lbs items. In this instance the Curt tow hitch adapter made great sense. The installation was easy, and I, like others, opted to remove the rear bumper instead of cutting into it. The entire process took me a little over an hour, and the tools used were a 16mm deep socket, a 1/2in hex socket, a ¾ in socket and a trim removal tool. You could easily find other ways of safely removing the wire clips if you do not have a trim removal tool. I was able to remove one of the wire tabs by hand by gently pulling on it.


Comments
I have sold the Gladiator, and because I added the hitch it increased the value. I can say however during the time that I had it on, it worked great.

by:
2021 Jeep Gladiator

I dropped the bumper so I didn't have to cut the plastic and still took less than 30 minutes to install. Great fit as it bolted right up




by:

The quality of the product is top-notch. Its coated for rust protection and fit perfectly on my Gladiator.

The only thing I would add is the "how-to" video (see below) as it's pretty easy to pull the bumper off completely and attach first without drilling the plastic on the bumper. Also, seeing how to use the wire to pull the bolts into position was priceless as the instructions are kinda lacking in that department!




by:
2020 Jeep Gladiator

The Curt hitch was as described and bolted right up as stated. I removed the rear bumper, rather than drill a 2" hole in the plastic. It took a little longer but was worth it.

It also arrived sooner than estimated.




by:

Fast shipping.
It was just what I was
looking for


Comments
I love this setup. Still going strong after a year. It holds my hammock chairs and other gear very good
Tom - 08/13/2022


by:

Sturdy, well-build piece of equipment. E-trailer processed the order and arrived exactly as promised.




by:

perfect fit and very easy to install even though I took the “difficult” way and removed my rear bumper to install the hitch since I didn’t want to drill into my bumper. looks way cleaner this way and looks great!




by:

Only issue is powder coating is fouling threads on top bolt whole. Will have to get a tap to clean threads so bolt can be threaded in.




by:

Great product quality and fitment!




by:

Good price easy install

  • Does Curt Trailer Hitch Fit 2020 Jeep Gladiator Sport
    I checked with Curt and according to them, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # CU74FR is a fit for all models of the 2020 Jeep Gladiator, including the Sport. You are correct that it will install partially through the ball mount hole in the bumper, as you can see by the accompanying cut out of the installation manual. I have added a link to that installation manual for you to check out as well of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # CU74FR.

    So the trailer hitch receivers that fit your 2020 Jeep Gladiator, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # DR64FR and Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # CU74FR were both designed to fit a Gladiator without a hitch on it already. In order to determine if the hitch will fit, you will need to see if your existing factory hitch will, in fact, come off. Some hitches are welded on and not bolted on, so you will need to check and see if Gladiator's hitch was welded on or bolted on and then compare it...

  • Draw Tite or Curt Hitch for OEM Look Installed on 2020 Jeep Gladiator
