This model of Jeep is equipped with a stability control system that seems to do a great job in combination with an E2 Trunnion 6K WDH. During one stretch of 20 kt crosswinds, I turned the Jeeps stability system off and found that it made no difference in steering or sway, the hitch providing all that was needed. I'll try the Jeeps system all by itself when the weather clears to see how it stacks up against the E2's trunnions. (It's 28 degrees out now and snowing...in April!!)

All in all the hitch is a good one, works well, but does extend down well below the bumper, as we bottomed out on one gas station entry with a deeper than usual western style 'gutter' along the street.

The trunnion model of that hitch has better clearance than the round bar, which is what we have. I find I need to keep an eye on the dips lest I drag a little bit.
