#1: Attaching Mopar Accessories

Posted on 2006-07-20 05:26:02 by JeepXJ

I am a first time TJ owner and ordered two front tow hooks and a hitch
from the dealer. I found out after the fact that they charge $79 bucks
an hour to install. He said it would take three hours to do this...
does that sound right? If not, about how long should it take? Is this
something a newby could do? The tow hooks seem like they should take
10 minutes max... does it take over two hours to install and wire a
hitch??? The labor is going to cost more than the parts! Earle
Horton, your thoughts?

No more than 1.5 hours even if the hitch needs extra holes. The Dealers go
by a flat rate manual for their repairs.

Thanks for your thoughts. I failed to add that I had them include some
sidesteps in the purchase of the TJ and that three hours includes the
installation of them, but they are meant to be removed for offroading,
so I don't think they should be more than a few bolts to tighten. I am
hoping that this will reduce the time by at least an hour or so... I
shouldn't be so cheap!

I pay 150 for the hitch installed by a local 4x4 shop here in houston.. the
tow hooks are a 2 minute job! You need a torx T-55 goto U-haul if there is
one around you...they charge 175 installed for a hitch with wiring the
lights (here in houston anyways) hope this helps

Yes, you can do it yourself in 1/2 that time.
