Purchased a AJK Hitch receiver and it’s nice looking, unfortunately no install instructions. However, probably really don’t need them if you have been around SXS‘s for awhile. It is asking to reuse the upper control arm bolts as well as the lower bumper bolts (Trail Edition Bumper). I just wanted to make sure there was no pressure on the upper control arm bolts when unbolted. I wasn’t sure if I should jack up the rear to release any energy on the suspension when unbolting. Thanks for any help.

My emp hitch mounted the same way. I didn’t jack it up. There is a little bit of pressure on them but not enough that it mattered.

Is there a torque value for the control arm bolts when re-installing? Asking because I'm about to do the same thing and don't have a service manual.

There is, unfortunately I don’t remember the value and I don’t want to pass along incorrect info by guessing, sorry. Try googling it, good luck.

I removed both rear wheels to install my EMP hitch. At first I tried to do it with them on but when I tried to remove that bolt it got in a bind. So now you’ve heard two different answers.
