This offers the 2 inch by 2 inch opening, its part number is 75998. Here's what our hitch is going to look like installed. As you can see, we're adding very little to the rear of the Cherokee. As far as the Cherokee hitches are concerned, this is one of my favorites. I really like the way it looks. we don't have that cross tube that's going to go all the way across, it's going to remain completely hidden up here behind our fascia.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2016 Jeep Cherokee - Curt

Today in our 2016 Jeep Cherokee Sport, we'll be installing the Curt class three trailer hitch receiver, part number C13172. Here's what the hitch looks like installed.

The main body of the hitch is completely hidden behind the rear fascia of the vehicle so it's a real clean install. It looks exactly like what a factory hitch would look like on most vehicles. It also sticks in nicely from the rear bumper cover here so when you're walking behind the back of the vehicle to put stuff in the hatch, you don't have to worry about running your knee into it or your legs. That's a nice selling point of it there. This hitch has a maximum ton weight rating of 750 pounds and a max trailer weight rating of up to 5,000 pounds.

Now everything you see here comes with the kit, except for a flat tape measure. You may want to use a flat tape or regular tape measure, whichever one will work. We're going to start by taking out a foot pack and making sure that it's completely open all the way, so we have it all the way to the end. We're not able to open it or close it at this point.

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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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,...

  • 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 the front deflectors, you'd need the part # WT80741 you referenced. The rear deflectors are part # WT81741. As for a snow plow, none of our vendors offer a front mounted hitch for the 2014 Cherokee. The plow uses the hitch as a mounting point to the vehicle, so at least for the present time there's no plow options for your vehicle. The MagnaFlow Cat-Back exhaust you'd need will depend on the drivetrain of your Cherokee. If you have the 2.4L FWD model, use part # MF15293,...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • The crossbar I recommend is the Thule AeroBlade # THARB53 because its extremely quiet and has integrated T-slots which make it easy to slide T-track accessories onto the bars. The roof mounted railing foot pack # TH450R (sold separately) are easily installed or removed with the integrated tool that will also act as a cover. The weight capacity of the roof rack is 165 pounds but it's always a good idea to check your owners manual to see the maximum roof weight capacity. Therefore,...

  • 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...

  • Yes, the Rhino Rack Roof Rack part number # RRRS614B is confirmed as a fit for your 2016 Jeep Cherokee Sport as it is confirmed as a fit for all models of the 2016 Cherokee and would work well to carry your canoes. For a canoe carrier you would then want the Rhino Rack Nauctic Canoe Carrier part # RR570 which would work well with the roof rack and would do a great job carrying the canoe. I attached a review video for this carrier for you to check out as well.

  • 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...

  • Thank you for the photo of your 2016 Jeep Cherokee that has factory-installed raised side rails on its roof. To use the Rhino-Rack Roof Mounted Steel Cargo Basket # RMCB02 on your Cherokee you'll need a roof rack like their aerodynamic Vortex Aero rack, made of parts # RRVA126B-2 and # RRSX005. This rack will be quieter than other types thanks to its elliptical-shaped bars that reduce wind turbulence. Their black finish will also complement the Jeep's appearance. An installation...
