Now lets go ahead with the installation. Alright, before we can install the hitch we need to remove the four frame bolts located inside the frame, theres two on each side.
Both sides are identical so everything we do here to the passenger side well repeat identically on the driver side. Occasionally the manufactures cock that seams the floor pane and the beam together is excessive and youll need to take a utility knife and cut the cock back. On this application it does not interfere so we will not have to cut the cock back. Now were ready to go ahead and install our hitch.

Well install each of our fasteners finger tight until we get all four in place. Alright, now were ready to go ahead and tighten our fasteners down. With all of our fasteners tightened down we can go ahead and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Alright, with all of our fasteners tightened down that will complete the installation of our Curt hitch part #: c13065 on our 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Bought this hitch for my 2014 Grand Cherokee to carry my bicycles. Customer service was very useful in completing the order. The order was shipped overseas to San Juan, PR arriving promptly and in excellent condition. I installed the hitch by myself in under 30 minutes without any difficulties. The installed hitch looks great. I'am very happy with this product and my buying experience. 147077

Ordered this particular hitch for my '11 GC because the reviews were good and I wanted one that would be relatively subtle in appearance. It definitely met my expectations - it seems very well built and the only exposed portion is the receiver - everything else sits up behind the rear facia. Installation was incrediably easy too. I added an OEM receiver cover and it looks very clean - almost as if it came from the factory - except I have a full bumper! Included are a few pic's exhibiting what it looks like installed. 19696

Workking with etrailer was a great experience. The hitch arrived in two days, which really surprised me, as shipping was free. The in the box instructions combined with the online videos made for a very quick installation. I was expecting to have a few glitches with the installation, but there weren't any. I literally got the hitch bolted on in 15 minutes and then spend another 20 minutes with the wiring. I read many comments about the wiring not being long enough, but there was more than enough with mine. A very easy process. Five years ago I had a hitch installed by a well-known moving supply company; the total cost was double what I paid on this one. Never again. I will always use etrailer going forward. 40363
Like everyone else, I had a great experience ordering from etrailer.com. Customer Service was responsive and knowledgeable, and my order was shipped out the same day. Installation was super easy on my 2014 Grand Cherokee. The site isn't updated yet to show that this item fits the 2014 model but I can confirm that it does. Thanks etrailer! 71768

This hitch is exactly what I was looking for. It fits perfectly, not too noticeable and doesn't stick out too far. Installation was easy; I did it myself and it took me about 30 minutes. Now that I know how to do it I could probably install it in 10. The hitch was delivered in less than a week. eTrailer customer service has been great as well. 155918

What can I say about etrailer.com and the Hitch Receiver... Communication was excellent, delivered in a matter of a few days, etc... The product was spot on; easy application taking less than a half hour. The hitch is snug to the bumper, sleek, and functional. I'll be a repeat customer for sure! Thank you, etrailer! 121822
What a pleasure to have a product arrive on time and go together just as promised. Our installation was less than10 minutes, all the parts enclosed, no modifications, and we were done! The complete follow up on my small order by the e trailer team was an even more pleasant surprise. Thank you, Ed 55712

Easy to order and very simple to install. The power torque is a must, I was hoping my husband & I could install but those bolts were too tight. Looks great on my vehicle and now my dogs can utilize the Otto Step inserted into the hitch to jump into the back. Thanks! 39662

I recently purchased this product. It was as described. Good Quality and easy to install. I do recommend getting some help from a friend to install. It will go more quickly. The hitch is solid and blends well the rear of my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. 161165
