Today, on our 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Edition, we will be installing our SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System, part number SM99251. The way our SMI Stay-IN-Ply DUO system works, we've got it hooked up to the RV, we have put it in the on position. Now when you're driving 20 miles an hour or less, normal driving, normal braking, this will engage briefly. It'll kick our brakes on briefly to assist with stopping. Now you come across an intersection and you need to stop harder, somebody stops in front of you and you need to slam on your brakes, the system recognizes that, and it does more of our braking for our vehicle automatically, because it recognizes that you need to stop faster and stop harder. This also has a feature to where if you become unhooked from your RV, the breakaway that we have installed up front will engage if the towed vehicle comes off of the RV, or whatever you're towing with, until the pin is replaced. That way, we don't have a runaway vehicle if it does come undone from our RV for any reason.

Swagman Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2015 Jeep Cherokee

Today, on our 2015 Jeep Cherokee, we've got the Swagman XC2 on it, and we're going to test it and see what kind of room and what kind of space we've got. This is a two-bike, platform style rack. It's been designed for use with inch-and-a-quarter or with two-inch hitches. Part number on it is S64650. The cool thing about this inaudible 00:00:20 I like is that we don't have any of the cradle straps and things like that to deal with. None of the hook and loop straps, rubber straps . We've got two really nice front and rear wheel cradles here that are going to give us a lot of support for our bike. Then that's squeezed down, right here on the top of our frame, with our frame hook.

This has been designed for use with two inch hitches and it offers a 500 pound weight capacity. Part number on it is CC-100. We've got a nice raised edge that's going to go all the way around the outside. It gives us some good attachment points to secure down our load. It's going to be two and three quarters inch off our platform so it's going to give us a little bit of front to back and side to side stability as well.



MaxxTow Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2015 Jeep Cherokee

Today on our 2015 Jeep Cherokee, we're test fitting the Maxxtow 21 by 48 Aluminum Cargo Carrier. This has been designed for use in 2-inch hitches. Thanks to the steel shank that's going to run all the way through the middle here, it still offers a 500-pound weight capacity. Part number on it is MT70422. Now you can see we've got a nice aluminum based platform here. It's going to have the six rounds that run through to allow us to lay our gear on there and support it but still has a lot of areas where that can fall down through so we don't have the dirt, water and debris and stuff like that building up on top. Around the outside edge, we've got good places here to attach our safety chains on the front and the back with all four corners so we can get everything secured down to it.





Jeep Cherokee Questions

  • I will be happy to help. For your 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Curt trailer hitch # C13172 will only have the receiver visible. the rest of the hitch will be out of sight. I have linked a video showing an example installation of this hitch for you. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball,...

  • To tow your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee with your motorhome there are several things that you will need. You will need a tow bar, base plate kit, safety cables, tow bar wiring, and a supplemental braking system. The tow bar installs on your motorhome and then connects to the base plates on your Jeep. I was able to find that your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a gross vehicle weight of up to 6500 pounds, so a tow bar that is rated for this weight that I recommend is the Roadmaster...

  • To flat tow your 1989 Jeep Cherokee behind a motor home you will need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. For base plates I recommend the Blue Ox model # BX1110 for a couple of reasons. First, generally speaking the Blue Ox models are easier to install compared to other models. And second, using the Blue Ox base plates with a compatible tow bar will allow you to use one of the more inexpensive braking systems. For a tow bar I recommend...

  • There are trailer hitches we currently offer for your 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. The two are Curt Class-III part # C13172 and # C13171. The one I recommend is part # C13171 because you don't have to trim your fascia. It is custom fit for your 2015 Jeep Trailhawk and has a gross trailer weight of 5,000 pounds and maximum tongue weight of 750 pounds. Please revert to your Owners Manual for the maximum towing and tongue weight capacity and you will always go with the lowest...

  • We have everything you would need to flat tow your 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trail Hawk behind your motorhome. First you will need a base plate kit, which for that I would recommend the Roadmaster Base Plate kit part # RM-521446-4. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The most popular compatible tow bar is the Falcon 2, # RM-520 . For safety cables you can use # RM-643...

  • I checked with Curt and they list the Curt Hitch part # C13172 that you referenced as a fit for your 2015 Jeep Cherokee Latitude so it will work for you. The part # C56208 is the correct wiring kit as well.

  • To start, you can use the Sterling tow bar # RM-576 with the EZ 5 base plates, # RM-521446-5, on your 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. But the cable anchors must be attached to the frame of the vehicle or welded to the receiver portion of the bracket. The crossbar is required when using the tow bar with EZ or XL base plates. It is not required on MX or MS base plates but there are only EZ base plates for your vehicle. The same goes for any Roadmaster tow bar. So it would be easier...

  • For your 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk with raised siderails the Rhino Rack roof rack part numbers # RRVA126B-2 and # RRSX005 has been confirmed as a fit and would work well with the Rola Cargo Basket part # 59504. I attached a review video that shows this cargo basket being used on a similar Cherokee.

  • Since your 2015 Jeep Cherokee Latitude came with the factory tow package you can use brake controller wiring harness # 3014-P. The harness is also compatible with your Draw-Tite Act III brake controller # 5520. On the 3014-P product page, if you scroll down you will see a couple of pictures that show where the factory connection plug is for the brake controller.

  • Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 87648 is indeed a fit for all models of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee excluding Trailhawk models so it will fit your Latitude. Trailer hitch installation is something that you can do at home but I do recommend having an assistant because hitches are heavy and getting them in the right place and tightening hardware at the same time is difficult for one person to do alone. All 2014 Jeep Cherokees will have the holes for the hitch already in the frame. You...

  • I can help you with all the parts you will need to flat-tow your 1999 Jeep Cherokee. To flat-tow your Jeep Cherokee, you will need a base plate kit, tow bar, lighting or wiring, safety cables, and a supplemental braking system. There are a few options for base plate kits on the 1999 Jeep Cherokee that can vary in price but all will work just fine on your vehicle. I would recommend the Roadmaster Classic Base Plate Kit, part # 1418-3. The # 1418-3 Kit will fit all models of...

  • I have a solution for you, but the part # BX88100 should only be used on the Aventa LX part # BX7445. For your Alpha part # BX7365 you would instead want the part # BX8893 as this is basically the same system but designed to work with your Alpha.

  • We do have a Thule AeroBlade roof rack that will fit your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, however the AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack, # TH7502-TH7502, that you referenced will fit raised OEM side rails only. Since your Jeep has the flush side rails, you will want the AeroBlade Traverse Roof Rack. The Traverse roof rack consists of the 60 inch AeroBlade Load Bars, # THARB60, the Traverse Foot Pack, # TH480R, and the Fit Kit, # THKIT1656. You can also add the Thule One-Key Locks,...

  • The mirror extension I recommend is the CIPA dual-view clip on towing mirror # 11953 because it will fit most applications (7 to 10 inch tall mirrors) and installation is quite easy. The overall length of this mirror is 14-1/2 inches.

  • You are pretty much on the right track. You will indeed need a 4-pole to 7-way adapter like part # 37185. In addition to the lighting functions provided by the 4-pole, you will also need to run the black 12-V power wire from the adapter to the positive battery terminal via a 40 amp circuit breaker like part # 9510. A length of 10 gauge wire like part 10-1-1 (sold by the foot) would also be needed. The power wire is needed to supply the power module mounted on the trailer. The...

  • You can measure the height of your R-Pod's coupler to determine what amount of drop you need in a weight distribution shank. With the trailer level, measure from the bottom of the coupler to the ground. The height difference between the coupler and the Cherokee's receiver is the amount of drop you need. I checked the R-Pod's specs but coupler height is not indicated. The shank in the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution system # FA94-00-0600 has a maximum drop of 1-5/8-inches from...

  • When choosing weight distribution you will need to go by the total tongue weight. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. So if the dry weight of the trailer is 2,730 pounds and when loaded it weighs 3,000 pounds that would put the tongue weight of the trailer at 300 to 450 pounds. If you do not have anything loaded behind the rear axle...

  • The two Curt 2-inch Class III trailer hitches that fit your 2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude, parts # C13171 and # C13172, share the same 750-lb tongue weight and 5000-lb towing capacities and neither one requires drilling for installation. The # C13172 has a hidden cross tube, to make it slightly less visible on the vehicle. The other differences are that the # C13171 does not require you to lower the exhaust during the installation, or to remove the underbody panels or trim the...

  • First, I recommend checking your owner's manual to verify that your vehicle is able to be recreationally towed. Based on my research, the 4 wheel drive model should be find to be flat towed, but the rear wheel drive model may not. The baseplate should not be attached to the front mount hitch. The hitch is not rated or designed for the kind of stress caused by flat towing. The front hitch and the base plates would occupy the same space, and would not both be able to be used....
