The CURT class 3 trailer hitch is the most common type of trailer hitch installed on full-size pickup trucks and SUVs. It is also found on full-size cars, crossover SUVs, minivans and mid-size trucks. That is because the class 3 packs the punch of a heavyweight hitch while still staying light on its feet. This CURT class 3 hitch offers a gross trailer weight capacity of 4,000 lbs. and a comparable tongue weight capacity of 400 lbs. It is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Jeep Wrangler (including Rubicon and with tube bumper) (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at curtmfg.com). It features a square tube frame and comes with all necessary hardware for a complete installation.
The 2" x 2" receiver tube opening of this class 3 hitch is able to accept a hitch-mounted accessory, such as a bike rack or cargo carrier, or a ball mount to tow most standard size trailers, including utility trailers, single-horse livestock trailers, boat trailers and large campers (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component).
CURT class 3 trailer hitches are engineered to be strong and capable, having a quality steel frame and a solid finish. They are put through strenuous testing before being deemed ready for market and come with two coatings -- a liquid Bonderite coating and a powder coat in high-gloss black -- that cure together to form a strong resistance against rust, scratching, UV damage and other wear. Our hitches are our pride, and as such, we back them up with a limited lifetime warranty and a one-year finish warranty.

Back in 2000 I had a Jeep wrangler and installed a Mopar hitch which took much longer than this and it didn't fit as nice. Fast forward to today and this was beyond easy to install on my 2003 Rubicon. Took me about 45 minutes from front to back with NO issues. One thing I did notice during the point at which you torque the bolts was that I could hear the coating crack under the pressure of the bolts/nuts. Looking closer I could see the coating around the fastener had bubbled. This will eventually separate and fall off and it will require repainting. 4 bolts to take it off, strip it and recoat a couple years down the road is a small price to pay in my opinion. This not only looks good but it looks strong and fits perfectly. Money well spent on a US made product. GO USA!!!
well made easy install
Installed this rear mount hitch with my son in about 1/2 hour. Well made hitch with a very thick powder coat. Arrived to me in Asia through the military mail. The box was damaged at all 4 corners, the vendor shipped it in the original Curt box. Once opened (didn't take long it almost fell apart) the hitch was extremely well packaged and protected. There was not even a scratch on it. The hardware was safe and sound taped into the safety chain area of the hitch. I am very please with this quality made hitch!!!
You better believe
Just received one of your hitches CURT #13408 for my 2004 Jeep Wrangler and the thing actually fit, no hitches, (pardon the pun). I could not believe it. Many, many thanks to whoever designed it. I did have to smack it twice with a hammer, but otherwise a perfect fit. You better believe I'll recommend it to anyone who asks. Thanks again for a great product, Joe
