Have Jeep Questions? Ask a Jeep Repair Expert for Answers
Good morning, the bumper does not have to come off to install the hitch. There is enough room between the frame and bumper to install the bolts from the side opposite the bumper and the nuts on the bumper side of the frame. The video HERE shows it pretty well.

may I have the full vin and brand of hitch please
an OEM hitch bolts to the rear bumper impact bar and DOES NOT require bumper cover removal as it sits UNDER the cover, it DOES NOT MATTER if it's a "anniversary edition" or not the anniversary edition is simply a trim package and uses the same rear cover as a non anniversary edition it's just painted differently, now a NON OEM hitch may mount differently hitch is why I need the vin of your jeep and the make of hitch you're installing
