2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Great product and great delivery time. Literally installed it in 30 minutes. Can’t wait to put it to good use. The only small issue I have is that the cover for the t-connector wiring harness is for a 4-port instead of the 5-port. Thank you.

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The box it was delivered in was quite destroyed, but no damage to the product, which is excellent. I installed it in 20 minutes, and it looks fantastic. Thanks etrailer!

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I’m no hitch expert but this receiver has been great on my grand Cherokee. I mostly use it to hold a bike rack but good to know I have towing capabilities in the future. E trailers had great info, particularly on the install, so I was able to save some mega bucks by installing myself, without having to cut my bumper. Also, have yet to notice any clearance issues.


Works and fit perfect Jeep Grand Cherokee 2017

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Easy install I’ve ordered a couple Curt hitch’s from etrailer great product always happy. Super fast shipping also.


Fast shipping nicely packed great figme nt


Great experience, best online price on this quality hitch, (discrete and looking much better than the model showing the tube running across and underneath the rear bumper) quickly delivered in a very professional packaging.

Thanks for the follow up, and wow! Time flies....I still love the hitch and put it to good use every week about twice a week to take my boat to the ramps among other things.

2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Easy to install fit perfect on my 2019 jeep grand Cherokee, typically used for my bike rack, great product highly recommend

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The Curt C13065 hitch was received quickly and installed in two hours by myself (73 yrs old) using no hoist or even a jack or creeper. Just laid on the double corrugated cardboard shipping box with my sockets and torque wrench. It tucks up nicely out of sight except for the 2 inch receiver. The install went fine and is shown with the Yakima Holdup 2 Y02443 both received quickly from etrailer. Both shown on the back of my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Highly satisfied with both.


Great product has performed well. I did have to grind a little off one of the mounting plates - not sure if my frame was 1/8” off or if the hitch receiver was, but other than that the install went easy.


Fit perfect on my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Hardest part was removing factory frame bolts, 20 min total time for install by myself.

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Excellent product and very straightforward to install. Opted for the Curt T-Connector C55515 and will have my dealer flash computer to recognize new configuration. Already used hitch with trailer to haul several heavy items up to about 2000lbs with no trouble whatsoever. Should have got this years ago!


Trailer hitch has been great. We attach a bike rack to it with 2 bikes and it works well. was also excellent. Great videos on installation, excellent follow-up and overall very friendly and professional with all interactions.

2014 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.


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.


Perfect fit and installation was easy. Good installation tips in the video.


Bought this hitch as an early Father’s Day gift for my dads 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee like a glove!! Installation time 10 minutes!!..just a 21mm socket, impact wrench and torque wrench needed.


I leave it on, the rack I mean, all year long to hold my cooler with dead fish or waders to keep the stink out of the car. It also serves to carry boxes and other things to increase the vehicles carrying capacities! I have a number of people asking where I got it and how they could mount the same rack for carrying camping gear.

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Received yesterday, and installed the same day with no issues. Can't wait for vacation and try it out.

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Anyone, and I mean anyone with basic tool skills can perform this installation in approximately one hour. Including installation of the wiring harness. A second set of hand may help holding the assembly in place while bolting it in, but not vital if you ate your Wheaties for breakfast. "Hats Off" to etrailer for making this affordable and a breeze to install. Now off to boating.


I’ve had trouble finding a hitch that would fit around my aftermarket exhaust. 2011 Grand Cherokee V8 with Gibson exhaust that are wider than the stock exhaust. The Draw-Tite was to wide. The Curt hitch was a perfect fit. Excellent quality as well. If you have aftermarket exhaust or just need more clearance the Curt is perfect.


Very easy to install.

2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee WK - old body

Received my hitch very happy with it easy install took maybe 20 mins thank you etrailer!!


Easiest install and very excellent quality. It looks so perfect that this could be a factory hitch. I would buy from etrailer again and again. This makes the family Jeep useful and packing the boat and heading to the wild soon.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I was in need of a tow hitch and I came across - I was excited to receive my delivery, however UPS delivered my shipment to another address and I had to endure the process of filing a claim and waiting for confirmation and be resent another trailer hitch. When finally receiving my package, the process went smoothly: the videos were a great help!
I had a small hiccup with the wiring, however I figured it out quite quickly.
I would thank all the reps at ( Alley and Toni) that helped me along the way through thick and thin. You all are great assets to the company. I will share your site with all my friends in need.

  • Can Curt Trailer Hitch 13065 Handle an 18 Foot Runabout Boat and Trailer
    Curt trailer hitch # C13065 is rated for 5,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 500 pounds tongue weight. When used with weight distribution it is rated for 7,500 pounds gross trailer weight and 750 pounds tongue weight. You would need to consult the vehicle owners manual for its capacities and whichever is lower, the hitch or the vehicle, is the capacity you need to go by. Runabouts come in all shapes, sizes, materials but based on the several I looked at online none exceeded 5,000 pounds....

  • What Hitch do You Recommend for My 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee WK?
    I have great news for you! You can install a hitch receiver on a 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee WK. We also carry hitches that are compatible with that model. For a great hitch for a WK model of 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class III - 2" # C13065. I double checked with Curt and confirmed that this hitch definitely fits that vehicle. One of the great things about the # C13065 is that it comes with a gloss outer coat over the base powder coat that provides...

  • Can Curt Trailer Hitch C13065 Handle the Weight of a 2003 BMW and Trailer
    Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" Item # C13065 has a gross trailer weight capacity of 5,000 pounds. As long as the combined weight of the trailer and the 2003 BMW do not exceed that capacity then the hitch can handle it. The tow vehicle will also need to have a towing capacity that meets or exceeds the combined weight of the BMW and the trailer.

    The Curt Class III hitch, part # C13065 has a 2 by 2 inch hitch that is 2.5 inches from the face of the hitch to the center of its hitch pin hole. Most Thule racks require that the hitch be at least 1-1/2 inches from the face to the center of the hitch pin hole.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Grand Cherokee Upland with Tow Hooks
    The hitches for your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Upland do require the removal of the tow hooks like with the Curt hitch part # C13065, but if you need a recovery point for your vehicle you can use the safety chain loops of this hitch instead which would work well. I attached an install video for this hitch as well.

    We do not have any installs pics for the Curt Hitch # C13065 on a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude, but we do have install pics on a similar Grand Cherokee. I attached these pics, install instructions and an install video for you to check out. Basically all you would see with this hitch installed is the receiver opening. For ball mounts I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a carrying bag.

  • Proper Hitch Number for a 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    Hitches are custom-designed for every vehicle based on the vehicle frames. Some years, the new model of a car line aren't very different and the previous year's hitch will still work. Other years, there's a significant enough change to the vehicle line that makes it so that hitch will no longer work, and a new design must be made. The Curt # C13065 does not fit Grand Cherokees later than 2017. If you're looking for a similar hitch that will fit your 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee, I recommend...

  • 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation
    When installing the Curt 7-way harness part # C55774, which is a fit for your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, you actually want to attach the mounting bracket to the rear bumper of your vehicle and not to the hitch. Drilling into a hitch tube actually voids the warranty. The Curt hitch part # C13065 is a fit for your vehicle as well and would be a great hitch solution.

  • 2018 Grand Cherokee Curt Trailer Hitch Comparison
    The square tube part # C13065 will be more hidden as it's cross-tube is up higher and the only thing that hangs down and is visible is just the hitch opening. I attached a picture that shows this hitch installed and you can see what I mean. The part # C13182 would have the cross tube visible so it wouldn't be my first choice if you were looking for as hidden of a hitch as possible.

    The big difference between the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13182 (confirmed to fit your 2013 and 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel models) and # C13065 is that the crossbar for the latter runs in a straight line whereas it has more of a rounded shape for the 13182. When I spoke with my contact at Curt he said that the exhaust is in the way for the 13065 and that he believes the gas tank was in the way as well. Since the 13182 has a different design it will fit your vehicles. So even...

  • What is a Concealed Cross Tube Trailer Hitch
    What that means is that the cross section of the hitch that runs side to side is completely out of sight once it's installed onto the vehicle.

    One of my coworkers has a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee which is the same generation as your 2011. When we went to install a 7-Way trailer connector on it the vehicle did have to be reprogrammed by a Jeep dealer. The Jeep should have the wiring there to add a 7-Way but it would not be fully functional unless the BCM was flashed by a dealership. You will not have to do this if you were to add a 4-Way trailer connector. If you plan on doing some towing in addition to the trailer hitch, # C13065,...
