How to Take Care of the Jeep Wrangler JK Hitch
Your Jeep Wrangler JK is a perfectly capable off-road vehicle on its own. But you can still make it better with a few upgrades here and there. You can go for suspension lifts and bigger tires. These modifications can allow you to clear taller trail obstacles and wade in deeper waters. You can also opt for steel reinforcement for extra protection all around your Jeep Wrangler. And still, you can go for other functional modifications like the Jeep Wrangler JK hitch. It allows you to latch on a trailer or attach racks for your bikes and similar equipment. Let's explore how we can prolong its lifespan by some simple steps. Here are tips on how to take care of the Jeep Wrangler JK hitch.
- Wash your hitch with clean water.
The simplest of steps to keep your Jeep Wrangler JK hitch clean is by washing it with clean water. Hose down dirt and particles sticking on its surface. It should do the trick for light amounts of dust. However, you exert a lot more effort with heavier amounts of dirt. By exposing them to water, they become loose and less resistant to scrubbing.
- Gently scrub the hitch with sponge and brush to remove stubborn dirt.
Once wet, you can go on with scrubbing and brushing your Jeep Wrangler hitch. The quick rinse with the water should have already eliminated the top layer of dirt and made stubborn dirt loose enough to be eliminated from the surface. Pick a sponge and soak it your car shampoo solution. Gently scrub the sponge against the surface of the hitch. The formulation of the car shampoo should help clean up the surface. For those particles still stuck on the crevices, use a brush. Don't forget to dip it in the car shampoo solution as well.
- Dry your Jeep Wrangler hitch to prevent rust or dirt build-up.
Your cleaning efforts will go to waste if you let your wet hitch accumulate dirt and rust. See to it that you wipe it dry every after cleaning. This way, you will give it a good fresh look.
