Trailer Hitch Installation - 2015 Jeep Cherokee - Draw-Tite

Today, on our 2015 Jeep Cherokee, we're going to be taking a look at installing a draw 00:00:04 type trailer hitch receiver. Class two, part number 36545. Here's what it looks like once we have it installed. You can see it's going to fit along the bottom of your bumper. It's not going to stick down any further than your factory exhaust system does. It's just going to cover it up.



Best 2015 Jeep Cherokee Hitch Options

Today on our 2015 Jeep Cherokee we'll be looking at the most popular hitch options. On the top here we have a class three CURT, part number C13172. In the middle we have a class three CURT, part number C13171. On the bottom we have a class two Draw-Tite, part number 36545. I'm going to go ahead and start with these two CURTs here on the top. Besides them both being class three, they both have the same weight capacity rating of 5,000 pound gross trailer weight rating and 750 pound max tongue weight rating.



Best 2014 Jeep Cherokee Hitch Options

Today on our 2014 Jeep Cherokee we'll be looking at the most popular hitch options. On the top here we have a class three CURT, part number C13172. In the middle we have a class three CURT, part number C13171. On the bottom we have a class two Draw-Tite, part number 36545. I'm going to go ahead and start with these two CURTs here on the top. Besides them both being class three, they both have the same weight capacity rating of 5,000 pound gross trailer weight rating and 750 pound max tongue weight rating.



Best 2016 Jeep Cherokee Hitch Options

Today on a a 2016 Jeep Cherokee, we'll be looking at the most popular hitch options. On the top here, we have a class 3 curt, part number C13172, and then in the middle we have a class 3 curt, part number C13171, and on the bottom, we have a class 2 draw tie, part number 36545. I'm going to go ahead and start with these 2 curts here on the top. Besides them both being class 3, they both have the same weight capacity rating of 5,000 pound gross trailer weight rating, and 750 max tongue weight rating, and if you use weight distribution, the gross trailer weight rating will increase to 6,000 pounds with weight distribution, and the max tongue weight rating will stay the same at 750 pounds. This is the same for both of these hitches. Now you may ask, what is the difference between these 2 if they have the same weight capacities and they're both from the same brand Simple, this one here is completely recessed behind the bumper cover of the vehicle, whereas this one hangs down below it. You may ask why is that important Well, in order for this one to sit behind your bumper cover, you have to trim out about a 3 inch by 4 inch hole for this part here of the hitch to rest through, so this part will stick out below. For example, we have this one currently installed on our Jeep Cherokee that we have here with us today, and we have a little look at it, you can see what we had to do for it to fit. This hitch will provide us with the cleanest installation. You won't have to have anything hanging below the body of the vehicle at all, besides the 2x2 class 3 receiver here. Also, another difference between these 2 is the safety chain loops. On this one, it's a tubular design.

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.

This hitch will require that a 3-1/2 by 4-3/4 portion of the underside of the rear fascia...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Jeep Cherokee
  • For a trailer hitch with the simplest installation on your 2015 Jeep Cherokee, I recommend the Curt Class III Receiver Hitch # C13171.

All 2014 Jeep Cherokees will have the holes for the hitch already in the frame. You will not...

  • Can a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Rated for 740lbs Tongue Weight Handle a Trailer with 835lbs Tongue Weight
  • A weight distribution systems maximizes what the hitch can handle up to its stated capacity. It will not let you go beyond what it or the vehicle can handle though. So check the hitch and owners manual to see if there is a weight carrying capacity and a capacity when using weight distribution which should be different. If 740 pounds is the most hitch or tongue weight it can handle then that is what you will need to go by. This will make the Airstream trailer too heavy for the hitch and...

I have included a picture that should help. It is a different hitch, # 87648, put shows the curve nicely. The other hitch, # 87683,...
