Can you share with me the prt numbers and the cost breakdown for your installation? Thanks.Going in on Monday to get my hitch installed by jeep dealer that sold me my renegade. They dropped the price to $429.30 with tax all I had to do is show them the quote for $405.00 easy peeze. Will show all after the install.
I went in at 12.30 Monday and it took until today Thursday to get it installed. They had the hitch, bezel, and the wiring kit that is all they had. The bolts, washers and nuts along with the clips that break when removing the fascia were not ordered cause they didn't know they were needed. When it came to the cutout for the bezel they would not do it so they ordered the fascia with the cutout. Total costs out of pocket was $581.54. I have all the part numbers if someone needs them. after watching the install it is a piece of cake and I should have done it.

Did they order/install actual Mopar equipment? Or was it an after-market version you/they found?
I found this kit over at RenegadeReady.com:
Just not sure if I wanna take on this little project myself, especially since my Rene-Lat is barely 2wks owned,
Did you hang out and watch then install stuff? I've been browsing YouTube trying to find something, but I guess these puppies are so new there hasn't been much custom work done yet.
That's ridiculous considering the FTP is only $400. Jeep should be subsidizing the dealerships for this cost. You would have paid $400 if it was available to you at the time of purchase. It's Jeep's fault it wasn't.The final quote for the hitch package from the Jeep dealer in Bartow Florida was $1000. After I chocked, I agreed and this week, they failed to secure the parts for installation. I'm getting my Renegade back tomorrow, with no hitch. I want the hitch through the bumper. I don't want to lose clearance on my Trailhawk. My immediate need is for carrying bikes. I'm going to look hard for a rear bike carrier this week to get me through the summer, and wait for the supply chain on the hitch to catch up with the demand.
I'm right with ya' Beep_Beep_Jeep
I really want a hitch, but don't want the under-the-bumper one. I'm not sure if I'm comfortable tackling the RenegadeReady project myself, and my boys are only 9 - so they're not exactly helpful when it comes to projects such as this,
In my garage sits my 4-bike carrier, and my cargo rack - collecting dust,
However, the price of the RenegadeReady kit VS what the dealer will likely cost is a huge deciding factor... I might just have no choice but to force myself to be comfortable taking this one myself...
What’s the part number?Oh hey...just got this email from Heritage Jeep in Logan, Ut. There's soon to be a "kit" which would bring down the price.....

Thanks for contacting us about your Renegade, I have spent some*
time looking into this for you and Mopar is getting ready to produce a*
kit that has the hitch, bezel, and hardware all in it, in fact they even*
have a part number for it and it cost 195.00 but the catch is that they*
don't have any out in the field right now and they can't give me an*
exact date of when it will be available. I can however order all the*
pieces individually but the cost jumps up a lot!! It would be 378.00*
just for the parts.
So in order for me to do it right now it would be 378 for parts and*
because the bumper has to come off its about 3 hours labor so that would*
be another 210 for the labor totaling at 588 plus tax.
Now if they can wait for Mopar to get the kit out it would only be 195*
for parts and 210 for the labor totaling 405 plus tax.
If you have any more questions feel free to email us or feel free to*
Thanks again for you time
