Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee - Curt

Speaker 1: Today, in this 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee, we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the Curt Class 3 trailer hitch receiver, part number C13182.Here's what our hitch looks like installed. The frame of our hitch sits nice and tight against our fascia, but yet still has plenty of clearance around our receiver opening making this an ideal hitch to use with bike racks and cargo carriers. On the side of our receiver, you'll find our industry standard 5/8 of an inch diameter hitch pin hole to secure any of our hitch mount and accessories. You can pick up a pin and clip on our website as part number PC3.Welded onto the bottom of our receiver and the frame of the hitch is our plate style safety chain loops where we can attach the safety chains from our trailer. These have a decent sized opening, so we shouldn't have much problem at all hooking on those safety chains.Welded on the back of our receiver, we have this nice collar here, which gives us a nice finished look and helps improve the strength of the opening of the receiver, giving a little bit more durability.This hitch features a 600 pound max tongue weight rating, which is the amount forcing down and a 6000 pound max gross trailer weight rating, which is the amount it can pull. It does support the use of weight distribution and when you're using that with your trailer, your tongue weight rating increases to 750 pounds and your max gross trailer weight rating increases to 7500 pounds.

You wanna make sure you consult with the owner's manual of your Grand Cherokee and not exceed what the vehicle's rated for. Go by whichever number is less.Now for a few measurements to better assist you in choosing any hitch mounted accessory you may need such as a ball mount, bike rack, or cargo carrier. You're looking at about 14 1/2 inches from the ground to the top of the two inch receiver opening and about 5 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rear most part of the back bumper.Now that we've gone over some features, we'll show you how to get it installed. To begin our install, we'll be working at the rear of our vehicle right towards the center of it. We have a look at the inside edge of our driver's side frame rail.

We'll find two 21 millimeter bolts. These are the bolts that we'll remove to secure our hitch in place. We have a mirror image on the passenger side.And here's the two bolts that we have on our passenger side. We'll go ahead and remove these. We'll do the same for the driver's side.

Now with an extra set of hands we'll raise our hitch in position and secure with the factor hardware that we removed.With the bolts started smoothly, a few turns by hand, we can now tighten them down. We'll now torque all the hardware to the amount specified in the instructions.And that completes our look at and showing you how to install the Curt Class 3 trailer hitch receiver, part number C13182 on this 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

My new Curt trailer hitch for my 2014 Dodge Durango was a breeze to order and install, thanks to the very informative online videos from etrailer. This was my second hitch purchased from etrailer based on my experience . I also ordered the trailer wiring harness, again, their videos were critical in choosing the correct product and assisting with the installation. Delivery was unbelievable, I ordered online Wednesday and received it on Friday, installed both by Saturday. I would not hesitate to buy from etrailer in the future and will recommend them to all of my friends and family. 489263

Exactly what I wanted. Very inexpensive option compared to the under the bumper cover OEM hitch option. Installed in a few minutes (lower spare tire, remove 4 bolts, hold hitch in place, reinstall 4 bolts, Torque to 126 ft lbs, Done!) on my 2016 Durango. If I had to find something to complain about; I would say I would have liked the trailer wiring bracket the other 2 e-trailer options had. I liked the design of this hitch better so I gave up the other two choices with the bracket (so I still have to figure out how to locate the wiring when not in use. Right now looks like some form of clamp around the main bar). 401689

Jeff, since you ordered a 4-way connector for your Durango, you could use a product like our 4-Flat Universal Mounting Bracket Item 118149, which comes with zip ties to attach to the hitch on your Durango.For your convenience, I have included a link to the product, which may be found here:https:/www.etrailer.com/Accessories-and-Parts/Tow-Ready/118149.html

The hitch for my 2017 Durango GT was received quickly and in perfect condition. The website said the hitch would be a perfect fit and it was. I installed the hitch by my self. I dropped the spare tire as recommended. Struggled a bit with removing the attachment bolts, needed a longer breaker bar, but got them out. The hitch fit, side to side, left little wiggle room. This is good but when doing the installation alone, sliding under the Durango on the ground takes some thought. The hitch is heavy in that position and has to slide by shrouds that protect the spare tire. Once I got by them, I used my legs to slide the hitch into position, installed the front bolts finger tight and rocked the hitch into position and installed the back bolts. Torqued them up, raised the spare tire and the job was done. Probably took an hour. Not sure that having help would have saved much time doing it on the ground. I am very pleased with the fit, instructions from the internet were good and the hitch looks great too. 464127

By far one of best quality receiver hitches out there. I was able to install it by myself in less than 15 minutes. Will buy from this company again because they actually care about the whole process from start to finish. Thank you for a quality product from a caring company. Here are a few pictures. 478548

Great product. Awesome price. Super easy install. This AND the wiring harness 118425 took less than 30 mins to install. Quality product despite the low price. Welds are good and powder coating is flawless. The install went just as smooth as the provided video.Super fast shipping as well. All in all just about the best personal experience I have had with an online purchase. 315684

Product Review: - solid build, clean professional finish, all parts included, instructions clear and colorful and easy to understand. - installed within two hrs as did not have car lift and only myself to install it. - would definitely recommend to friend. - using it for bike rack, possible future light trailer and cargo use. - easier to place bikes and cargo behind Jeep than on roof rack. 553866

Product is exactly as advertised. I called and worked with Rachel to place an order over the phone and she was extremely helpful! I ordered the item with a relatively tight timeline and she assured me it would be there on time (ended up being a few days early). The only negative I would say is that when installing on my Jeep Grand Cherokee you need a fairly large socket (21mm) but even further you really need an extension to your socket wrench to get into some of the tight spaces, especially if you have a rear tow hook that needs to be removed. Installation was easy if you have those parts and the etrailer folks are great. 426139

It has been working great! Thankfully its not something that I need to mess with other than installation but shortly after I got it I put a Thule T2 tray bike carrier on the back of my Jeep and have loved it. Much easier than trying to life a heavy mountain bike on top of a Grand Cherokee.

It fit perfectly, so my husband had no problems installing it. It made a great gift for our neighbors who needed a way to tow a trailer with a scooter on it. Now they can both get around without a problem. Also, it got here fast! Good quality, husband said whoever drafted it did a good job! 449124

I have a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. This hitch just bolted in. It really helps to have a second set of hand only to help hold the hitch in place. Install is 10 minutes after you find your torque wrench. Great instructions. Even better support from eTrailer.com 79558


Comments

How difficult was the wiring? Did ur jeep already have the wiring and you simply need to plug it in?

-- comment by: Brad - 06/30/2013

At this time, there are no aftermarket trailer wiring solutions available for the 2014 Grand Cherokee. Your best source would be heading back to the dealership. I'm not sure if they have something in development or if it's not going to be possible to do an aftermarket harness on the 2014. The Grand Cherokee electrical system has become increasingly complex in the last few years and has brought some challenges with trailer wiring systems. If you don't have a 2014, let me know what year you do have, and I can help you find a solution.

The hitch has been installed for a year and looks great and works great. The jeep had a factory wiring harness connector but not the factory plug. I purchased the plug and mounted it. The Dealer had to activate the plug and they did that at no charge. I bought the plug from the dealer.

I ordered the trailer hitch and wiring harness on Tuesday and totally surprised when it arrived Friday ( I took the free shipping option). I installed it to day (Saturday). The products were in perfect condition when they arrived. I installed by my self in 2.5 hours. The hitch went on in 20 minutes and the wiring harness took the remainder of the time. I am 60 and know if I did this when I was 20+ years younger, I have no doubt it would of took way less time. 366448

Fast shipping, easy install, seems to be very high quality. I had it installed by myself in no more then 30 minutes, no jack.. If your doing this job solo get under the car and brace one side with your legs other with hands, get a bold in oneach side then get the perfect alignment. The true test will be when it has a load on it. 348645

Very good price, arrived on time, and seems to be very sturdy. Installation was fairly easily. The R/T model has a plastic heat shield between the exhaust and spare tire that has to be removed to get the hitch in place. To reinstall the shield notches have to be cut out on ends where it meets the hitch mounts to get it back in place. It's held in place by six 10mm nuts and come out and back in easily enough once the notches are cut. With the hitch in place it is a very tight fit getting the spare back in place - I had to guide it and nudge it some while my son worked the winch until it cleared the hitch. 403186

This hitch fit perfectly on my 2017 Grand Cherokee and I installed it on my own in 20 min. I would recommend having a second set of hands to make it easier but it was not a problem. The shipping was fast it arrived 1 day earlier than expected. I would definitely recoment this hitch and most of all etrailer. 359631

Outstanding!!! First, Jeep wanted close to $700.00 to install their factory hitch. etrailer hitch cost me way less, no charge for shipping. It took me 5 minutes to unscrew the 4 bolts on the 2015 Jeep GC. I employed a friend to help me installed the hitch. It took us 5 minutes. It helps to have someone hold up one side of the hitch while attaching to frame. I highly recommend this product. It looks factory installed. Fits perfect under the bumper. Thank you 382528

I did not remove the spare tire to install the hitch on my 2012 Durango although that made it difficult to get the wrench in position. The original bolts were painted and really tough to remove. I called a local mechanic and asked for advice. He suggested cutting a piece of pipe and inserting my wrench handle in that to extend the effective length of the wrench. The additional torque which that idea provided was enough to smoothly loosen the bolts. No hammering, torch, or paint thinner were needed. The hitch was easy to install after that. 148736

I have a 2014 jeep grand Cherokee Overland. Does the cut out section on the bumper have to be cut out to install a tow hitch? I dont need the wiring, just want to put a bike rake on the hitch.Thanks

There is no need to trim any fascia while installing this hitch. You may have to trim minor amount of excess caulk.

Very disappointed in your products with your company. The first hitch i ordered was damaged so bad out of the box so bad i had to return it and am STILL waiting for my refund! The second one came and seemed acceptable. I installed it and two days later its chipped and rusting in a visible area of the hitch. I was told on the phone "The hitch arrive to us from the factory stacked on top of on another so there going to be scratched and paint chipped". That response in not an excuse to me. That to me is a gap in QC (quality control). If majority of product are being damaged in transit from the factory. Demand that the producer get a better protected, quality product delivered to your company and in turn to the customer. 427799

The hitch install was as simple as could be. My Cherokee had none of the options that would challenge the install like def reservoir, dual exhaust or spare tire. It took longer to set the torque wrench than it did to bolt it in place. Super simple, super easy. High quality and I like the look of the round tubes over the square one. Very happy! 670261

  • Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier Combination Recommendation for Hitch
  • I have the perfect solution for you. The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Platform 2 Bike Rack w/Cargo Carrier # HR1450Z-85 is a 2 bike platform rack with a cargo carrier that attaches to the rear of it. I attached a picture of what it looks like as well as a review video for you to check out as well. If you need a USA made trailer hitch for your 2018 Dodge Durango too we have the Curt # C13182 which is a confirmed fit and would work well with the rack mentioned.

  • 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.

  • Hidden Trailer Hitch & Wiring Harness for 2018 Dodge Durango

That hitch is the Draw-Tite # 76196 which like the others has a 2-inch hitch receiver opening. I linked two photos for you. The first shows the Draw-Tite # 76196 which installs behind the rear bumper fascia rather than under it, as with the Curt model # C13182 that is shown in the other photo.

This is a Class III hitch with a 2 inch receiver that fits all models of the 2017 Durango (R/T models with dual exhuast will require trimming of the heat shield and fascia, and full-size spare will not be able to be stored under the vehicle).

Which harness you choose will simply depend on what type of trailer you will be towing and the functions you will need.

  • Curt T-Connector Wiring for 2018 Dodge Durango Without Factory Towing Package
  • Yes, the Curt T-Connector # C56336 that you referenced is exactly what you want for your 2018 Dodge Durango without the tow package. If you don't already have a trailer hitch then I recommend going with the Curt Class III # C13182 which is easy to install and will allow you to keep your spare tire installed under the vehicle if it is the 18" size. We also have the Draw-Tite # 76196 which looks much more sleek when it is installed but this is a pretty difficult installation and actually...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch & Wiring for 2018 Dodge Durango
  • Yes, we do have hitches for your 2018 Dodge Durango. Of the three rear hitch options I recommend the USA-made Curt # C13182 because it offers easy no-drill installation using included hardware as shown in the included video. The hitch model # 76196 from Draw-Tite that you referenced offers a less visible installation but will take a lot longer to install. If you want the least-visible hitch and you don't mind a more challenging installation then the Draw-Tite # 76196 is a great choice...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendations for a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Rental Trailer
  • Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75699 for your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited is rated for 5,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 500 pounds tongue weight so as far as the hitch goes it can handle a trailer up to that capacity. When used with weight distribution the hitch is rated for 750 pounds tongue weight and 7,500 pounds gross trailer weight but on a rental trailer you most likely won't use weight distribution. Curt hitch # C13182 is rated for 600 pounds tongue weight and 6,000 pounds...

  • Does Fascia on 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude Need to be Altered to Install Curt # C13182
  • When we installed the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13182 on a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee we did not have to trim any fascia (see attached photo and video). I am not sure if the trim on an Altitude is much different than the Laredo but I can say that it doesn't look like you will need to. You can check out the attached installation video to confirm. If you have the tow package then you can just install the Curt T-Connector # C55774 which gives you a 7-Way and a 4-Way connector, but if...

  • Hitch, Wiring, and Brake Controller Recommendation for 2016 Dodge Durango
  • First let's start with a hitch. For that Curt hitch part # C13182 would be a great option confirmed to fit with plenty of towing capacity. I attached an install video for this as well. You will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # 118617. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC7. I attached...

  • Compatibility of Weight Distribution System with Unibody Frame on 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ltd.
  • Weight distribution (WD) and sway control products rely on leverage to work properly, which requires the body of the vehicle to be rigid enough to withstand the force. Unibody vehicles are typically not as strong or rigid and therefore cannot typically handle the same loads and stresses of a body-on-frame or ladder-style frame vehicle when it comes to towing and using WD or sway control. The unibody structure is popular because it helps reduce weight and improves ride quality and fuel...

  • Towing Capacity of 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 3.6L V6 and Brake Controller Installation
  • A vehicle's towing capacity depends on the entire complement of factory equipment installed on it. The best place to confirm this is the owner's manual. I checked an online edition of the manual for the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with 3.6L engine and page 488 does indeed indicate that this 6200-lb towing capacity applies to both 4 x 2 and 4 x 4 versions. In any towing system, the lowest-rated component will determine the overall capacity. In your case the vehicle can tow 6200-lbs...

  • Recommended Towing Components for 2018 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x2 V6 for Towing Capacity
  • For your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with 3.6L V6 4x2, the towing capacity is 3,500 lbs according to the manufacturer. If you don't already have the hitch, wiring, and ball mount for towing, I recommend the following: For your trailer hitch receiver I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class III - 2" # C13182 which is the best for towing and the easiest installation. It also is made in the USA. Then for your trailer wiring, I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness...

  • Towing Capacity of 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with 3.6L Engine
  • Based on my research the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with the 3.6L engine has a towing capacity of 6,200 pounds for the 4x2 model and 7,.200 pounds for the 4x4. It looks like the lesser tow ratings you found are with different trim packages of the Grand Cherokee, specifically the Laredo. With this in mind you shouldn't have any trouble pulling your loaded horse trailer with the Grand Cherokee Limited. If the Jeep you end up purchasing does not already have a hitch installed...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • The Curt Hitch part # C13065 and Draw Tite Hitch part # 75699 are basically different brands versions of the same hitch. The # C13182 is the odd duck in that it is different from the rest. It's biggest difference is that the cross tube of the hitch is visible. The others have hidden crosstubes. I would recommend the Draw-Tite # 75699. This has a hidden cross tube as well as a ton of positive reviews from our customers who have installed it. If you plan on doing some towing you...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendations for a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Diesel Motor
  • Yes, there are trailer hitches available for the diesel models of the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and yes, we can ship them to Canada! If you want a Curt hitch it is # C13182. And there is a Draw-Tite option as well, # 75713, which is rated a little higher than the Curt hitch but of course you are limited to the capacity of the vehicle. I have linked videos showing example installations of both hitches (the one for Draw-Tite is on a Durango but the hitch also fits that vehicle; just an...

The two hitches do differ a bit in their physical appearance but both will actually mount in the same location under the vehicle and provide nearly identical ground and bumper clearance dimensions.

  • Locating Trailer Wiring on 2014 Dodge Durango Without a Factory Hitch
  • Good news, I can help you locate your wiring harness if indeed your Durango came with one. According to your owners manual you may have a 4 way or 7 way on your Durango. If you did, it would be mounted around the bumper area. It looks like it was to be included if the "Prep package" was installed, which is unlikely in your case if you have no trailer hitch. The correct wiring harness for your 2014 Dodge Durango to have a 7 pole is the # TK22113. If you wanted to have a 4 pole the...

  • How to Mount Pollak 7-and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket w/ Mounting Bracket to Round Tube Hitch
  • In order to mount the Pollak 7 and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket w/ Mounting Bracket # HM40975 to a round trailer hitch like the Curt # C13182 referenced in your question, you will just need to add the No-Drill Mount Bracket # 18140 for a short bracket. This will attach to the Pollak Mounting Bracket and secure to the trailer hitch by using the included hose clamp. I have attached an installation video that shows this process on a round tube hitch receiver for you to look at.

  • Size of Bolts Used to Install Curt Class III Trailer Hitch # C13182 on 2014 Dodge Durango
  • To install the Curt # C13182 on your 2014 Durango, you'd use the existing M14 bolts located on the inside of the frame members at the rear of the vehicle, as shown in the installation video I've linked you to. You'd need a 21mm socket to remove and install the bolts, and they'd be torqued according to the instructions, which I've also linked you to. You might also need the following to complete your towing system: Balllmount, part # 2923 Trailer ball, part # 63845 for a 2 inch, or...

If you look at the picture I attached you will see that the Hidden Hitch has a more of the cross tube visible as well as the mounting brackets. The Curt only has the curved cross tube that comes down and is visible. For trailer wiring you would want the Curt Harness part # C56336.

  • Recommended 7-Way Mounting To Hide Wiring Connections
  • For the Mighty Cord Trailer Connector Adapter # A10-7084VP and your Curt # C13182 trailer hitch, I recommend the 6 and 7-Way Trailer Connector Mounting Box for Round or Square Tube Hitches # 18159 along with some simple zip ties like # 853-3194-02. This will allow you to keep the connections hidden and also keep the wiring on the back side of the hitch or tight under the frame.
