Looking to hear what 4xe owners are using for an aftermarket hitch. Seems not all jl hitches work. For example the Quadratech one says not for 4xe.

just need it for a bike rack and dirt bike carrier. Easy install preferred!

I'm not sure why it says the Quadratec 2" receiver hitch won't fit. I bought it for my '20 JL Willys, and when I traded it in I took it off and put it on my '21 4xe Sahara and it fit just fine. Very easy.

I was just looking at this same topic as well, and I came across this post from last month, and there were other users who also had success with the Quadratec hitch and harness.

Ya, pretty strange they would list like that when apparently it fits. What is actually different on the 4xe vs normal Sahara hitch area?

I purchased a Rubicon take-off receiver to put on my son’s Sahara 4XE. It fit perfectly if this helps. Both are/were plastic bumpers but I don’t think that makes a difference.

I could tell you, but then....
Went MOPAR with mine as I'm taking the Jeep with me overseas later in the year and had to keep all mods OEM to avoid trouble on import permits. Went on in 15 minutes with no issues!

Sounds like the consensus is most will work, going to pick one up and give it a shot

I'm seeing $88.25 at this URL... and I want to ensure the hitch works with the stock plastic step bumber. I hear Quadratec specifically references which on to use with the step bumper.

this is a no brainer.
Trailer Tow Receiver Kit - Mopar (68240905AA)
$58.99

This is the one I used on my 2021 rubicon 4xe. I have Rubicon steel bumpers. It works with no issues. It pained me, but I did order two molar bolts. I could have sourced them locally, but I wanted them to match and the look like they are galvanized for corrosion protection.
There was a spacer plate between the rear cross member and the steel bumper. It came out and the hitch plate replaced it.

The descriptions were confusing as to whether they fit. This part number does.

just installed this Mopar hitch on my ‘22’ 4xe Sahara w/plastic bumper. Really easy install. Need to torque to 67 ft/lbs if using it for anything other that a bike rack.
