One thing many people do not know is that we have the ability to order OEM parts and accessories for customers.

A customer recently reached out to us looking for an OEM Jeep Renegade Trailer Hitch.

He was happy to know that we now Jeeps OEM hitch as a Retrofit Kit by Renegade Ready for him and placed his order.

We also have the ability to order OEM parts and accessories if you need!

We now have two shops open one here in Austin, Texas and one in Signal Hill, California.

Once the Retrofit Kit arrived he brought his Jeep into our local shop here in Austin and we got to work!

Shown below is his Renegade with his bumper removed with stock rear end and after we added the hitch. We will upate this thread with more photos as well!

As we conitinued installing the trailer hitch the next thing we did was install the Renegade Ready Wiring Harness.

Please note if ordering the Renegade Ready Retrofit Hitch Kit you will need this harness in order for the brake lights to work on whatever you are towing.

We routed the harness to the lower bottom hole shown in the image below.

After doing so, we continued to the OEM rear bumper.

The retrofit Hitch kit includes a cutout sheet that has a sticky back to stick to the bumper to make it easy to cutout the proper area to fit the plastic trim piece shown below.

After sticking the cutout to the bumper we used a thin saw to cut out the area and test fitted the trim piece.

The trim piece has little clips that clip into the thin cut lines.

Third image before last shows how the bumper should be cut out completely before installing the trim piece.

Last photo shows The entire OEM rear bumper ready to be installed onto the rear end of the Renegade.

I installed the retrofit kit as directed and it was easy and looks terrific. The only problem I have noted is that when I leave my trailer connected to the car harness even with the power all turned off, the tailer lights blink. Any help out there would be appreciated.
dazrum,

Thanks for the feedback and for reaching out to us. Have you checked where you connected the fuses? I would reccomend starting there. Do you have any photos of how and where you connected the harness? I will send you a PM on this forum shortly to better assist you.

I wanted to take a moment and share some information. We understand some of you may have questions about installing this. If you plan to install this yourself but are unsure how before purchasing this retrofit kit please feel free to reach out to us directly. We have shops in both our Texas and California locations and have installed this at both locations. We can answer any questions in regards to installing this or tools needed to do so. We can also install this of course here at either locations. Don't hesitate to call with any questions. Thank You.

What about the stock harness that comes with the OEM hitch?
The Retrofit Harness Integrates with the stock harness to allow the cleanliness of the stock harness location and trimming while keeping the accessibility and ease of installation of the retrofit harness!

OEM does not allow for the full size spare. Do I have to lose that to install this?

djthumper,

Since this kit uses the OEM hitch and brackets, then the ability to carry the full size spare will be affected the same way as OEM.

Add the factory in-bumper hitch to your Jeep Renegade.

Unlike some other kits offered elsewhere this is a complete kit that comes with everything you will need to a proper installation. Only the Renegade Ready Kit offers everything you need!

No other kit comes close to this kit. Detailed instructions, templates and other misc parts drastically simplify the installation process and virtually eliminate the chance of making a mistake. This is one of the many reasons on why this is now the #1 selling retrofit hitch on the market today.

I wonder how I could make this work with Euro style electric connector. Do you know of a solution?
Hello Bill Door,

Thank you for reaching out to us.

The hitch is manufactured with a place for the 4 way flat connector.

I would think the easiest solution would be a converter. Plugged in between your trailer and your Renegade.



We should have access to these from our vendor. If you would like please feel free to send me a PM and I can get you in touch with one of our Team Members who can help locate one and put together the order for you.

Thank you again.
