Problems installing hitch for Jeep Liberty

I am attempting to install a hitch for my 2004 Jeep Liberty. Prior to lifting the hitch in place with help, I wanted to make sure the bolts included would fit. As I tried to place them in, the holes are rusted and would not screw in (manually). Is a torque wrench the only solution for this matter. Is the rust in the holes an issue? Is this a job for a shop? Thank you very much

No that should not be a problem but if you are worried about the rust spray some penatrating oil around the holes and then try after about 30 min.

A torque wrench measures the amount or torque required to tighten a bolt to spec. Thats not what you need in this case. You need to get a wirebrush and clean off as much rust as possible, then you can try a large ratchet or breakerbar to get your bolts to thread in. If you feel that you will strip or break a bolt then by all means take it to a pro.
