Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability.

In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Hello,

I bought the hitch below and
installed according to instructions and it seems to sit low/awkward on my 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Can you please advise as to why? I may have received the wrong hitch?

See pic attached.

Look forward to hearing from you!


Comments
I contacted the manufacturer and they verified that this hitch fits your vehicle and that is how it should look.

Perfect fit, easy install, works great. Pulled a u-haul trailer about 3000 mi on freeways, in cities, on small roads and on gravel roads to campsites - worked perfectly.




by:
2018 jeep Grand Cherokee

My 2018 Grand Cherokee didn’t have a hitch. This system it tight to the bottom of the bumper kinda looks stock. I really like the round tubes it mad from, a lot nicer then the square tube I had on 2012 Grand Cherokee. It’s still rust free makes the back of the truck look tough!! I would Recommend it to anyone




by:
2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I installed this hitch on my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee (that I use as a "dingy tow" behind a Class-A motorhome). Delivery was excellent and installation was fairly easy (the hitch bolted right up to factory installed attaching points).




by:
2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

This hitch is perfect! Installed it on my ‘14 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Very fast shipping, it shipped a few hours after I ordered it. Install was extremely simple, took maybe 10 minutes. I’m impressed, should have ordered it years ago. Would recommend!




by:

High quality and super easy to install! Arrived a day earlier than expected and took me, literally, 15 minutes to install in my driveway. Couldn't be happier!




by:
Jeep Grand Cherokee

It was an easy installation on my 2022 WK Grand Cherokee. I did that in a shop (where I work) like 8 mins w/second pair of hands but I’m sure you can do it on your driveway. I moved the spec label to the left side avoid dirt and heat from the muffler, lastly make sure you torque it 126lbs!!!




by:

Hitch arrived 4 days after order was placed. It was well packaged. I have not installed it yet but was surprised that it is extremely heavy duty. It was a bargain for the sale price. It will be used to haul my 5 x 8 trailer. Because I was having trouble ordering the hitch on line, I called the 800 number, and was greeted very politely and professionally. Purchasing this equipment was a very satisfying experience.




by:

Worked out great! I had it delivered directly to my mechanic who installed it for me. It looks great and has held up wonderfully so far through a couple road trips. I use it for my trailer hitch/cargo rack.




by:

This trailer hitch works great and is really easy to install. I installed this in 20 minutes or less by myself. Great for cargo carrier or small trailer.




by:

Very easy to install -- With the right gear, you can do it yourself. Sturdy and well-built. Highly recommended.




by:

I bought the wrong hitch the first time. etrailer was very helpful, made the switch out seemlessly and I got the right version. Not hassles, great customer service.




by:

The hitch works great which I used to hold bicycles and bought a small trailer and used it for that. Also bought a plug to hook up to my truck so I can plug the trailer in. The only thing with the hitch I needed a second pair of hands to help me with it so I ended up bringing it to my mechanic to install it. The plug rigging it up myself so it's easy to get to put the dealer had to reprogram the computer before I could even use the trailer lights on my 2018 Durango GT.




by:
Jeep Grand Cherokee

Easy install on my Jeep Grand Cherokee, even by yourself. I wish I had a mount for my wiring harness but that may have been an option on a higher priced hitch. Tows my boat and feels sturdy and solid as it should.




by:

Just attached my hitch to my new car and will put it to use mid-November. I am pleased with the price and how well made it seems to be.


Comments
Absolutely fine - no problems at all. Im totally happy with this trailer hitch. Also, its nice to have someone specific to contact in case of a problem.

by:

Was perfect for your grand jeep cherokee 2019. It is so steady, we used with a normal pin and not the expensive anti rattle pin and all was fine.
Reccomend.




by:

This was the easiest class lll hitch install ever. It literally only took 10 minutes to install on my 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee without any modifications. Fits the contours properly. So glad I decided to buy this brand. It's perfect for pulling my utility trailer.




by:
Dodge Durango

It fits my 2021 Dodge Durango GT! I found it helpful to remove the spare tire in order to have more room to work. The four 21 mm frame bolts were then easy to access. It took a little bit of jockeying around to get the hitch into position, but the holes lined up and it was not difficult to get all four bolts back into the frame. I was doing this lying on a sheet of cardboard with the vehicle flat on the driveway, so it probably took longer that it might under more ideal working conditions. Once in place the hitch looks fine and is fairly unobtrusive. I have not towed with it yet, but if feels solid and should perform as presented.




by:

Great people to work with, had a time-line when I needed the hitch. They gladly helped me get it when I needed it. Awesome work guys, thank you!!




by:

Perfect for a bike rack. The dealer wanted around $600 for parts and labor so this was ideal and I had it installed by my mechanic so I saved over $300!!


Comments
Still hanging on and works perfectly fine but there is slight rust on it which is a bit strange especially since the car sits in the garage 5 days a week other than that, well worth it!

Jeep Grand Cherokee

Excellent product and a very easy install. Great price for a well built hitch. Installed on 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee 80th Anniversary. About a 30 minute install. Will need a 22mm socket to remove 4 bolts from Jeep and reinstall.

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee

    The etrailer brand Class III hitch, part # e98901 fits all models of the 2018 Dodge Durango except for SRT models. I have no way to look up what size wheels your Durango is equipped with, but I found that either 265/60-18 or 265/50-20 were the available stock sizes. As the description states, you won't be able to stow the spare under the vehicle if it's mounted on a wheel larger than 18 inches. You should be able to read the tire size on the sidewall of the spare. If the size ends in...

    The trailer hitch I recommend for a 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98901. This hitch is a direct bolt-on fit with no cutting or drilling required.

    I believe if the Summit package has a hitch then it has the tow package. But the term "tow package" varies by manufacturer so the best way to tell if your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit has a tow package would be to contact your local dealership, provide your VIN and they should be able to tell you what your vehicle is equipped with.

    Since you do not have the removable panel for the rear hitch opening of your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee the hitch you'd want is the etrailer part # e98901. This hangs below the rear bumper completely and will give you a higher capacity 2 inch trailer hitch.

In order to use your 1-1/4" with a 2" hitch receiver you will need to use a reducer sleeve such as Hitch Reducer 2" to 1-1/4" # HT02. The 1/2" pin is included for the 1-1/4" accessory end.
