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

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

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
Like everyone else, I had a great experience ordering from etrailer.com. 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
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 etrailer.com! 281685

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 etrailer.com 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
by: Dave C.10/15/2014
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 etrailer.com 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

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
What a pleasure to have a product arrive on time and go together just as promised. Our installation was less than10 minutes, all the parts enclosed, no modifications, and we were done! The complete follow up on my small order by the e trailer team was an even more pleasant surprise. Thank you, Ed 55712
The product was excellent. High quality, nice glossy finish and easy to understand instructions. The installation of the hitch and wiring connector took 15 minutes. The hitch and wiring connector came within a few days undamaged and delivered right to the front door. An excellent product. 280173

HITCH BOLTED UP PERFECTLY ON MY NEW 2016 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE LOREDO. THE ONLY PART OF THE HITCH THAT IS VISIBLE AFTER INSTALLATION IS THE 2 " RECEIVER. OVERALL THIS IS AN EXCELLENT CHOICE IF YOU WANT A TRAILER HITCH AND YOUR VEHICLE DID NOT COME WITH A FACTORY INSTALLED HITCH. 315159
by: Laurie J05/07/2012
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
by: Dean Thomas11/16/2014
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
by: Susan B.06/13/2014
Overall, this was an excellent experience...fast shipping and easy installation. The hitch looks great on my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee! Would definitely recommend this style over the others I have seen if you would prefer a more hidden/subtle look. 135471

Judy M and Amanda R provided great customer service. Price matched the item I was looking for with fast shipping also. The prouduct itself was in great shape and took 10 minutes to install on 2015 Grand Cherokee Altitude edition. 184815
Arrived quickly, fit perfectly. Ding one star because the hitch was poking through cardboard box and a bit scratched. Not enough to worry about though. Would recommend to others. With the right tools 20 min install. 136541

Installed in a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Took 20 min to do by myself. With the tire inside the floor of the rear cargo area, it slipped right in place! Super quick shipping. Great service 147127

The hitch was shipped promptly and was received in a short time in good condition. Installation was completed as per the instructions, and the hitch fit perfectly. An excellent buying experience. 9898
by: Fred F01/19/2017
Packaged well, but the ends did poke thru the box, not damaged, but could have been, needs something done there, but the rest was great, bolt holes for the frame lined right up and it fit well. 333754
by: Steve R06/07/2016
Fit like a glove, very easy and fast installation. Use it strictly for a bike rack. The only drawback is the fact it doesn't have as much ground clearance as a factory installed receiver hitch. 258760
by: Adrian F03/18/2011
I received my order quickly and on time, The hitch work greate and fit my 2011 Jeep Cherokee perfect. I live up to what I needed. I am well pleased with the product and the service I received. 9772
by: Rich B04/24/2015
Like others, I feel this is an excellent product. While it took me longer than 15 minutes to install, the extra 10 minutes it took could be because I'm over 70 and move a little slower. 187818
by: Brian P11/19/2016
Could not have been more easy, from order to install. Pictures/instructions very clear and concise if one needed for reference. Highly recommend both etrailer.com and product. 318017

Took me 15 minutes to put it on by myself. I used a cooler with the lid off to hold it in place, it worked slick and installed easily. Thanks 38969
This is a great hitch. I installed it within 20 minutes; it was a perfect fit. You will need a 21mm socket and a torque wrench set to 126 lbs. 163773
Excellent product! Took me 10 min to install. It took me longer to get the tools together then it took to install. Shipping was fast. 71609
