Best Aftermarket Hitch For OEM Look on 2021 Jeep Gladiator


What hitch best compares to the OEM hitch for looks after install?


Expert Reply:

We currently have two hitch options available for the 2021 Jeep Gladiator, the Draw Tite, # DR64FR and the Curt # CU74FR. The Curt option, # CU74FR best provides the OEM look because of where receiver sets, hanging just below the bumper. The Draw Tite option, # DR64FR sets with the entire crosstube easily visible below the rear bumper.

Both are rated as a class III hitch with a 2" x2" receiver. However the Curt # CU74FR has max gross trailer weight of 5,000 lbs. with a maximum tongue weight of 500 lbs.. The Draw Tite, # DR64FR option has a max gross trailer weight of 7,500 lbs. with a maximum tongue weight of 1,200 lbs. and can be used with a weight distribution system. The Curt option is not rated for use with weight distribution systems.

If you are wanting an OEM appearance that has great weight ratings, go for the Curt # CU74FR option. But if you think you may need/want the option of a weight distribution system, I suggest the Draw Tite, # DR64FR.
