What Jeep do I drive?: None

Hi Turismo07, I have a WH with a genuine Mopar hitch, it has a bolt in the centre underneath as standard. I'm surprised that the WJ does not, however I concur that Hayman Reese method of a bolt in the bottom corner is the way to go, yes, they do wear with much towing - just re-tighten.
Regards johnv,

I believe that the "bolt" is no longer legal, so those that have it were made b4 this ruling. My XJ made this noise but my WJ does not; niether has this bolt, guess some have more play than others.

I bought a towbar from Jeep 2 weeks ago for my JK and it has a bolt underneath.
Before I bought the bar from Jeep I phoned a few different Towbar shops around Perth telling them I was looking for one with the bolt and they didn't mention anything about legality they simple said the only people that put bolts in them are Hayman Reese or genuine Jeep.
Jeep was over $100 cheaper so I went for the Genuine one.
If there is a legal issue (and I would be surprised if there was) it's not in WA.

i had the same problem with my XJ, quick simple way to fix was wrap some duct tape around the tounge, no drilling, no welding, no tapping, and no tools needed at all
