Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee - Curt

Today on this 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee were going to install the Curt hitch part #: c13065. Here are a couple of measurements that will assist you in selecting accessories for your new hitch. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outermost point of the bumper is 4 and a quarter inches. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground will be 15 and inches. Now lets go ahead with the installation. Alright, before we can install the hitch we need to remove the four frame bolts located inside the frame, theres two on each side.

Both sides are identical so everything we do here to the passenger side well repeat identically on the driver side. Occasionally the manufactures cock that seams the floor pane and the beam together is excessive and youll need to take a utility knife and cut the cock back. On this application it does not interfere so we will not have to cut the cock back. Now were ready to go ahead and install our hitch. Its a good opportunity to get a second set of hands to help you hold the hitch in place while you install the fasteners.

Well install each of our fasteners finger tight until we get all four in place. Alright, now were ready to go ahead and tighten our fasteners down. With all of our fasteners tightened down we can go ahead and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Alright, with all of our fasteners tightened down that will complete the installation of our Curt hitch part #: c13065 on our 2012 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. 147077

As others have said, the shipping was quick and painless. I will definitely purchase future products from eTrailer. I purchased this hitch to use for bike racks on my '15 Grand Cherokee and installed it yesterday. It looks perfect. Only the receiver is visible, the rest is concealed by the rear bumper and looks very clean and OEM-like (which is why I went with this product). Installed this myself in 7 minutes flat with a buddy holding it up in place and a torque wrench in my hand. No problems and the hitch is solid. Serious value for the price paid. Great experience overall. 196940


1 year in, and several long distance trips with a Thule bike rack attached to the receiver, this hitch has worked out perfectly. Still solid, absolutely no rush or wear issues. Couldnt be more pleased with the product and etrailer service.

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. 19696

Great product, fast shipping and most importantly super easy installation on my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. A took me 25 min only by myself to installed and I’m really happy with the results. I definitely recommend this brand, fits perfectly. Thank you. 10/5/17 440013

Nice Hitch, Fast Shipping , Good Instructions. Going to use to haul my small trailer and Bike rack. A pleasant experience as always with Etrailer. 234741


The Hitch is pretty much unnoticeable on my Jeep, looks better than factory. Very easy to install and is a strong quality product. Dont hesitate you will not be disappointed.

So we received our order for our Jeep Grand Cherokee in a very timely manner. The hitch was priced very reasonable and the electrical adapter was as well. It literally took me 30 minutes to install both items. This saved us between $100 up to $500 depending on where I would have taken it to have the work done. E trailer had very helpful videos on line for review before install. You will need a torque wrench and Walmart has the best deal. We did find out the hard way that if you don't buy your vehicle with a tow package you will have to take it to the dealer and have it tuned as our trailer lights would not come on. All in all we highly recommend e trailer for do it yourself trailer hitch. Thank you e trailer 297463

Workking with etrailer was a great experience. The hitch arrived in two days, which really surprised me, as shipping was free. The in the box instructions combined with the online videos made for a very quick installation. I was expecting to have a few glitches with the installation, but there weren't any. I literally got the hitch bolted on in 15 minutes and then spend another 20 minutes with the wiring. I read many comments about the wiring not being long enough, but there was more than enough with mine. A very easy process. Five years ago I had a hitch installed by a well-known moving supply company; the total cost was double what I paid on this one. Never again. I will always use etrailer going forward. 40363

Wow! Could not have been easier. New hitch and wiring harness arrived right on schedule. Watched the "etrailer" how to video and they were right on target. Hitch went in with the four bolts that were already in the frame of my Jeep. Nothing was in the way. The hitch just goes right in. The wiring harness plugged right in as well. The only thing that makes the job a PITA is that I have to go to the dealership and have them plug into my Jeeps computer to activate the power to the trailer harness. That is a nuisance, but not etrailers fault. That's a Jeep manufacturing issue. Why can't Jeep just have the trailer harness activated by default. 403306

by: Axelrider07/24/2017

Looks good installed. Took a little "product re-engineering" to get installed though, specifically a few square hits with a sledgehammer. One side wasn't anywhere close to where it needed to be to install the bolts, upon looking at it one side was bent in. I placed a cloth over the side and beat it with the sledge until it was at the appropriate 90 degree angle and then it installed easily. The box didn't look damaged so I assume this to be a manufacturing defect. I would have returned it but I'm leaving for vacation and had to have it. Otherwise would have been a 20-30 minute easy install. 410075

Like everyone else, I had a great experience ordering from Customer Service was responsive and knowledgeable, and my order was shipped out the same day. Installation was super easy on my 2014 Grand Cherokee. The site isn't updated yet to show that this item fits the 2014 model but I can confirm that it does. Thanks etrailer! 71768


Chris, I am considering putting this hitch on my 2014 Grand Cherokee. Will only be using for a bike rack. Wanted to make sure it will fit as the picture shows a tight clearance from the hitch to the end of the bumper.What is your opinion.Thanks,Ron

I inquired with my local dealership on the cost to install a trailer hitch on my Jeep Grand Cherokee. The dealer cost was $700. I did some research and found a couple of etrailer videos on youtube. They showed the installation process and even explained the different trailer hitch options. I ordered the C13065 because it did not show as much, which is true. it looks great. It shipped quickly and was super easy to install as described in the video. Thank you etrailer! 360798

Fits like a glove. 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I'm an old guy so it took a little longer to install probably 30 min. total. When I ordered over the phone I was helped by a lady named Jena, knowledgeable, polite and had a friendly voice. People like Jena make the day go by better. Also installed the Pollak 7+4 pole connector about another 15 min. So....including the beer after the install total time about an hour . 220357

This hitch has performed well, i have had no issues with use or with the installation. Very good product. The only minor issue was that the hitch came in the box loosely packed and had damaged the box during shipping. Fortunately the hitch paint was not damaged. I recently purchased a draw tite hitch for a new vehicle, and by comparison, the draw tite hitch was packaged more securely in the box. 350064

The hitch receiver was competitively priced and fit my Jeep perfectly. It took less than 30 minutes to install by myself. The website had excellent video installation instructions, in addition to the ones that came with the receiver. Customer service was great. Called to get information regarding which trailer connector I should buy and CourtneyB did a great job assisting me. 213826

This product was great and easy to install. Only took me about an hour to finish the install on my own, with just a ratchet. The holes on the hitch lined up perfectly with the stock bolt holes and there weren't any issues attaching to the frame. Trailer frame is hidden under the bumper so the only part visible is the main hitch. I highly recommend this product. 288783

This hitch is exactly what I was looking for. It fits perfectly, not too noticeable and doesn't stick out too far. Installation was easy; I did it myself and it took me about 30 minutes. Now that I know how to do it I could probably install it in 10. The hitch was delivered in less than a week. eTrailer customer service has been great as well. 155918

What can I say about and the Hitch Receiver... Communication was excellent, delivered in a matter of a few days, etc... The product was spot on; easy application taking less than a half hour. The hitch is snug to the bumper, sleek, and functional. I'll be a repeat customer for sure! Thank you, etrailer! 121822

Excellent trailer hitch. Fit my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee perfectly. Installation was a breeze using 4 factory bolts. Super fast shipping from etrailer and a great price!

The C13065 is a great product. Fit my 2014 Grand Cherokee perfectly. Installed it in 20 minutes by myself. An extra set of hands would have been nice but not necessary. Using it for a Yakima Fullswing bike rack. Service from etrailer was also great. Ordered on Saturday and on my doorsteps Tuesday. 280165

Easy to order and very simple to install. The power torque is a must, I was hoping my husband & I could install but those bolts were too tight. Looks great on my vehicle and now my dogs can utilize the Otto Step inserted into the hitch to jump into the back. Thanks! 39662

I recently purchased this product. It was as described. Good Quality and easy to install. I do recommend getting some help from a friend to install. It will go more quickly. The hitch is solid and blends well the rear of my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. 161165

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?

  • Can a Trailer Hitch be Used as a Recovery Point for a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • Yes, you could use Curt trailer hitch # C13065 as a recovery point to get unstuck when doing a little off-roading or muddin'. You could tie off to the safety cable loops on the hitch or what I recommend is to use tow strap loop, # TR63046, since it offers a larger area on which to attach a strap. And if you are in need of a tow strap, now or in the future, I recommend # IMF100014. I have included a link to a video showing installation of the hitch for you.

  • 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...

  • Is Under Car Trimming Required for Installation of Hitch # C13065 on a 2011 Dodge Grand Cherokee
  • For installation of the Curt Trailer Hitch, # C13065, on your 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will need to trim excess caulk on vehicle frame rails, only if it interferes with hitch installation, see instructions link. I have added a photo showing where the excess caulk is likely to interfere and need to be trimmed. No part of the bumper or fascia will need to be trimmed.

  • Concealed Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • Yes, the Curt Hitch part # C13065 is confirmed to fit your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee non-diesel and non-SRT8. I checked with Curt to confirm this. Also, this hitch has a concealed cross tube to make it less visible. 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.

They did not have the height measurement for the hitch but provided the following information. The receiver will be positioned level at the back of the vehicle and will not point down at all.

  • What is the Difference Between CURT Class III Trailer Hitches for a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • The main difference between CURT Trailer Hitch C13075 and # C13065, is the cross tube. On C13075, it has a round tube and the receiver extends straight out from the side of the tube. This requires a bend in the cross tube which makes more of the hitch visible beneath the vehicle. Hitch # C13065 has a square cross tube.

  • 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.

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,...
