2014 Jeep Wrangler Questions and Answers


  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Behind a Motor Home
  • There are different types of lighting solutions available for flat towing any given vehicle, including a 2014 Jeep Wrangler. But first, there are 5 main items needed to flat tow a vehicle: base plates, tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. Starting with the base plates there are a few options, see link to the right. Since you have not yet purchased the Jeep I can warn you ahead of time that if you get one that is stock then you will be fine as far as base plate...

  • Items Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Behind Motorhome
  • Flat towing a vehicle behind a motor home safely and legally requires a number of components, including base plates for the toad, safety cables, a tow bar, a lighting/wiring kit and a supplementary braking system. The linked article explains each of these items in some detail. We offer a range of base plates that will fit the 2014 Wrangler Sahara so long as it does not have aftermarket bumpers, winches, or brush guards. I suggest the Blue Ox # BX1126 with removable arms which comes...

  • Why Must the Negative Battery Cable Be Disconnected on a Jeep Wrangler to Flat Tow
  • Jeep recommends disconnecting the negative battery cable when flat towing to prevent the battery from draining. When you flat tow your Wrangler, the ignition must be left in the ACC position. This would leave certain electronic components on that could drain the battery. For your situation, I would recommend installing the Roadmaster Automatic Battery Disconnect, # RM-765, that you referenced. This will eliminate the hassle of having to disconnect your battery cable each time you want...

  • 2014 Jeep Wrangler Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation
  • Most likely not, when we installed a Curt Hitch part # 9883544 on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler like yours we found that it measured 10-1/2 inches from the center of the pin hole on the hitch to the spare tire cover. So you would need a rack with at least that distance from the center of the pin hole to the closest portion of the rack and the # Y02465 only has 6-1/2 inches. Instead check out the Thule Vertex Swing 4 Bike Rack # TH9031XT, this is a very similar swing away bike rack that has 14...

  • Spare Tire Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler with Wide Tires
  • Hollywood offers a cost-effective 2-bike carrier, part # HRSR1 , that mounts around the outside of the spare tire, rather than by using the tire lugs, so you do not have to remove the spare tire to install the rack. This carrier also has dual folding arms, fits tires up to 12-inches wide, holds up to 75 lbs and is made of black powder-coated steel tubing. Another rack to consider is a Yakima SpareTime 2 Bike Carrier - Spare Tire Mount part # Y02598. The Yakima includes two extensions,...

  • Cargo Carrier With Ramp Recommendation that Folds Up Against Vehicle When Not in Use
  • I may have an option that will work for you, however, the Pro Series Steel Cargo Carrier, # PS10401-10402, does not fold up against the vehicle. The widest folding cargo carrier with a ramp that we offer is the MaxxTow 30x50 Cargo Carrier, # MT70106. The interior dimensions of this carrier are 48 inches long x 28 inches wide x 5 inches deep. It comes with a 48 inch ramp and a 500 lb weight capacity just like the Pro Series carrier. I have attached a demonstration video of this carrier...

  • Roof Rack for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler 2-Door Hard Top to Carry Kayaks
  • The roof racks we carry for the 2014 Jeep Wrangler hard top are for the factory hard top and are not verified to fit if you have an aftermarket hard top. I have included a link to the options for you. The hard top will need to have rain gutters to mount the roof rack feet. It looks like you have previously ordered Yakima roof rack # Y00409 and # Y00101. There is no drilling required to mount this rack. The feet clamp to the rain gutters. The bar spread is going to be only 18 inches....

  • Will the Pro Series Folding Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier Fit a 2014 Jeep Wrangler
  • The Pro Series trailer hitch mount cargo carrier # 6502 does fit a 2 inch shank but to determine if it will clear the spare tire on the back of your 2014 Jeep Wrangler you will need to take some measurements. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to the distance required to clear the spare tire. If that distance is less than 13 inches, the carrier will clear the spare tire. If it is less than 7-1/2 inches it will also fit when folded up. We have had customers...

  • Recommended Tire Snow Chains for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Driving in Moderate to Heavy Snow
  • I think adding snow chains are a nice addition, especially when you are heading skiing and potentially deep snow at times. But snow tires will be the superior option for snow. This is because snow tires dig down right through the snow to make contact with ground. I recommend the Pewag tire chains # PWE2228SC because of the square links. These provide excellent traction in snow, ice and mud. Just what your Jeep likes. These have a reversible design so you can wear on either side which...

  • Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler to Clear Spare Tire
  • I believe we have exactly what you need. Check out the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR. This rack has a distance of 13-1/2 inches from the pin hole to the upright mast of the rack so you would have the clearance. This is a great rack loaded with features, but it would not break the bank either. It can tilt for rear cargo access, has anti-rattle hitch pin and anti-sway cradles to help prevent contact between bikes. Check out the review video I attached. If you plan on carrying any...

  • Roof Rack, Kayak Carrier and Paddleboard Carrier Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Hard Top
  • First thing you are going to need is a roof rack. For a rack confirmed to fit your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Hard Top you would want the Yakima roof rack that consists of the following components: Round 58" CrossBars # Y00409 Yakima 1A Raingutter Towers part # Y00101 The two things you will need to consider is the weight of your kayaks and how wide they are. This roof rack can handle up to 165 lbs and has a width of 58 inches. You will need to consider the weight of your boards and kayaks...

  • Hitch and Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler
  • None of the cargo boxes including the Sportrack Cargo Box part # SR7018 that you referenced will fit on crossbar spreads as small as 14.4 inches. The only option I could recommend for you that would allow you to carry additional cargo would be a hitch and hitch-mounted cargo carrier. For a hitch the most popular option would be the Curt Hitch part # 9883544. The most popular cargo carrier we offer is the Pro Series Carrier part # 63153. I attached a video of this carrier being demoed...

  • Recommendation for Transporting 2 Paddleboards on 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sport Hardtop
  • Your Jeep Wrangler with its hard top gives you two options for paddleboard transport. Roof racks are available for your hardtop and these would allow use of a paddleboard carrier but not the Thule SUP Taxi Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier # TH810 that you referenced (this carrier requires a minimum crossbar spread of 24-inches and the racks only provide 18-inches of spread). The link provided shows these roof racks, which include the most cost-effective option from Yakima, their round bar...

  • Will Saris Freedom 2 Bike Spare-Mount Platform Rack # SA999TB Fit 2014 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
  • The Saris Freedom 2 Bike Spare-Mount Platform Rack # SA999TB may fit your Rubicon with 32-inch mud tire and you can check by taking one measurement. Measure through the hub to the plate the tire is mounted on. If this measurement is between 2-1/2- and 5-1/4-inches you'll need to use adapter plate A, part # SA999TB. If the measurement is between 5- and 7-3/4-inches instead you'll need adapter plate B, part # SA996B. Both adapters are sold separately. If the measurement is more than 7-3/4-inches...

  • Draw Tite Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Jeep Wrangler
  • I checked with Draw Tite and the part # 75515 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit the 2015 model Jeep Wranglers so it would be a great option for you. I attached a link to an install video for you to check out as well. If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in 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, 2 inch ball,...

  • Could Cable Tire Chains be Used on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler
  • The owners manual of a vehicle is the final authority on whether or not snow chains can be used. If there was a cable exception that would be listed there and the part # PW2028C would be something I could recommend for you. I attached an install video for these cables that show them being used on a very similar Wrangler as yours. I also attached an FAQ article on chains as well.

  • Hitch Extender Recommendation for 2014 Jeep Wrangler Transporting Saris Thelma Platform Bike Rack
  • In order to mount the Saris Thelma 3 Bike Platform Rack, # SA4239B, on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler, you would need to use a hitch extender. To limit the amount of added stress on the hitch, I recommend going with the 7 Inch Hitch Extender, # HE06, because it is the shortest extender available for a 2 inch hitch but still gives you the room needed to clear the spare tire and use the folding option on the rack. Please keep in mind that using a hitch extender will reduce the tongue weight capacity...

  • Adding a 7-Way and Brake Controller to a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sport
  • Since your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sport already has a 4-Way connecter in order to add a 7-Way you will need # ETBC7. This will allow you to hardwire in a 7-Way and a brake controller, which will be needed to activate electric trailer brakes. You could perform this installation yourself, it would not be all that difficult. It just takes time. For example it would take a professional installer about 2 hours or so to complete the installation including the brake controller. I have included...

  • Will the Kuat NV Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X
  • The Kuat NV bike rack # N101 measures 9-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier when in the down position. You will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to the distance needed to clear the spare tire on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X. If less that 9-1/2 inches the rack will fit. If less then 7-1/16 inches it will fit when folded up as well. I have linked a helpful article showing how to take the measurement. Since...

  • How Would the Rightline Ace Rooftop Cargo Bag Install on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sport with Naked Roof
  • On any cargo bag that fits a naked roof, such as the Rightline Ace, # RL100A20, you would have to run all of the straps through the one set of doors on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sport. There is no other way that you could attach it to the vehicle roof. Although you may be able to use the car clips, # RL100600, and secure the straps to rain gutters (if applicable on your Jeep model). The only other option is to install a roof rack. Yakima has a rack option that is the most economical...

  • Installation of Curt Class III Hitch # 9883544 on 2014 Jeep Wrangler
  • The Curt Class III Hitch # 9883544 that you referenced is indeed a correct fit for your 2014 Jeep Wrangler. It is usually easier to access the hitch mounting points on the frame by temporarily lowering the exhaust from its rubber hanger. (You do not need to remove it completely.) For some this step will be necessary; for others perhaps not. It will certainly make things easier. This step is a function of the frame/exhaust placement, which is based on its model year. Two helpful articles...

  • Recommended Wiring Harnesses to Flat Tow 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and Tow Trailer
  • I do have a solution for you, however you will need separate wiring harnesses to flat tow your Jeep and to tow your trailer. To flat tow your 2014 Jeep Wranger, I recommend TrailerMate Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles # TM781124. This custom harness plugs directly into your vehicle's existing wiring so no cutting or splicing is required. Check out the installation video of this wiring kit on a 2012 Jeep Wrangler. The model year is different, but the installation is similar. More...

  • 4 to 5-Way Adapter Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler towing a Boat Trailer With Surge Brakes
  • What you need is the Adapter 4 Pole to 5 Pole Trailer Wiring Adapter # 47515. This will plug into your existing 4-way on your 2014 Jeep, and then the blue wire will get ran to the reverse light circuit of your vehicle taillights and then tap into that circuit with the included quick-splice connector. I attached a video that shows a typical installation for this product for you to check out to the right.

  • Floor Mat Recommendations for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler
  • Semi-custom means they aren't exactly form-fitted to the floor boards of your 2014 Jeep Wrangler, but they will fit and protect floorboards. If you are looking for something form fitted in the same price range I would recommend the Husky Liners part # HL18041.

  • Key Position for Flat Towing a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sahara
  • Different vehicles have different requirements and procedures for flat towing. In order for your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sahara to be flat towed, and really any vehicle, the steering wheel has to be unlocked which requires a certain key position. An automatic battery disconnect, # RM-765, is not a requirement to flat tow your Jeep. But if using a supplemental braking system, required in most states by law, and if it requires 12 volt power, you could install a 12 volt outlet kit, # RM-9332....

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited That Has 7-Way Connector
  • Among the most popular and highly-rated trailer brake controllers we offer is the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885. This unit offers reliability, ease of use and the flexibility to be used with both electric and electric-over-hydraulic trailer brakes. Since it is a proportional-type controller (rather than a time-delayed type) it will help avoid excessive wear on your Wrangler's brakes. The linked article will explain further. There is no quick-connect harness to install this unit in...

  • Fit of Yakima Skybox 21 Cargo Box # Y07184 on 2014 Jeep Wrangler 4-Door Hard Top
  • The Yakima roof rack you referenced, their round bar system consisting of parts # Y00409 and # Y00101, when mounted on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler 4-Door hard top has only a very limited weight capacity. This is due to the fact that the drip rails on the hard top are not structural to the vehicle; they cannot support the weight load of even an empty Skybox 21 cargo box, part # Y07184, which weighs 62-lbs without any cargo loaded. Also, the Skybox 21 requires a crossbar spread of 24 - 42 inches...

  • Spare Tire Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sport
  • The Thule Spare Me Bike Rack part # TH963PRO would work very well at the rear of your 2014 Jeep Wrangler with a P255/75R17 sized spare tire. Check out the install video I attached that shows this rack being used on a very similar Wrangler as yours. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Swagman Easy-Out Women's and Alternative Frame Bike Adapter # 64005 to provide a horizontal top tube on...

  • Swing Away Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for 2014 Jeep Wrangler
  • The swing away bike racks basically only come in a 4 bike configuration, but they would still work well to only carry 2 bikes. The rack I would recommend is the Thule Vertex # TH9031XT as long as you have less than 14 inches from the center of your hitch pin hole to the furthest point out on your spare tire. This rack has the most clearance for the spare tire and is the favorite of the demo guys here for the swing away racks. Check out the review video I attached for more info. If...

  • Supplemental Braking System that Does Not Require Splicing in 2014 Jeep Wrangler Wiring
  • To install the Blue Ox Patriot, # BRK2012, you will not have to cut or splice any of the vehicle wires on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler. Also, I got a good tip from the installation supervisor here and he said that the feet come installed in the bottom of the unit but in most cases they are not needed and you can just take them out. This will help the unit to stay in position. One issue with the Patriot is that it does not have a way to tell you if the Jeep brake pedal is actually moving or...
