Expert Reply:

For your 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited EcoDiesel, the Curt Hitch - 2" # 13432 and the etrailer Hitch - 2" # e98856 the main difference between the two hitches is the clearance length from the center of the hitch pinhole to the outside surface of a standard-sized spare tire. The clearance of the etrailer hitch measures 7 inches while the clearance of the Curt hitch measures 10 inches. This measurement is important because you need to consider this length so that the shank on a trailer or accessory can clear the spare tire.

With that difference, I recommend going with the etrailer Hitch # e98856. If you are planning on transporting a bike rack, for example, the Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches # S64670 will give you plenty of clearance (since it measures 8 inches from the center of the shank pinhole to the closest wheel loop). If you are planning on transporting women's bikes, step-thru bikes, or children's bikes, you will need the Hollywood Racks Bike Frame Adapter Bar # HRBA-PRO. The adapter bar will give your bikes the straight horizontal plane that is required to attach to the hooks of the XTX2.
