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

David

Still looking good, and performing well. Would recommend this product and buy another one for a future vehicle.

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!!!

Chi

It’s been a year, I’ve carrying both of my emtb and mtb roughly 100lbs all over everywhere. This things is bulletproof, I re-torque once just to be safe side!!

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!

It’s great! It is used mostly to hold my bike rack, but I am still very pleased with it!

@BradW Awesome, we're glad to hear that!


by:

Bought this hitch from etrailer mainly for bike rack and some light trailer hauling. I thought the hitch might be more noticeable after installed, but it tucks in under the bumper nicely and looks good. I've bought several items from etrailer.com over the years and am always satisfied with their products and fast shipping.



by:

Installed flawlessly on 2015 Jeep grand Cherokee and looks great. Didn’t event have to jack up car. Haven’t towed anything yet it but sure it will work fine



by:
2021 Toyota Highlander

Easy instructions, installation was a breeze. Very important to torque bolts down to spec. Also will need to have dealer “flash” vehicle to activate trailer lights. 5 stars



by:
2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee

This was a very simple install on the 2018 Grand Cherokee. Only had to remove the recovery hook and bolts, then pop in place. Less than a one hour job.

Easy to get a fall and a great reliable hitch.

Package arrived much quicker than anticipated. Product was exactly what I ordered. Easy to install. Looks great on my Jeep Grand Cherokee. Follow up after purchase was wonderful. Thank you to all involved on my purchase. Will defiantly recommend to family and friends.

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!

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



by:

Hitch seems to be of great quality. Word to the wise, be careful torquing your M14 bolts to the specifications in the instructions provided with the hitch. It must be a little too high. One of my M14 bolts broke while torquing to the instructed 126 ft lbs. Now I'm having to figure out where to go to get the broken bolt removed etc... Providing a three star review as I feel the instructions may need to be reviewed and changed.



by:
2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Perfect fit in 2105 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Literally completed the installation in under 15 minutes. Removed four bolts, held unit in place, reinstalled four bolts, done. Never even jacked the jeep up. While under the jeep verified the factory wiring harness at the rear bumper facade and ordered the wire kit from etrailer.



by:

Custom fit. Easy install.

An pin hole is too close to the cross bar and I cant use a locking pin for this unit only way I can use it if I use a regular pin and its very tight



by:
2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Ordering was seamless. Great communication from George and Carol! Hitch fits well and looks good on the back of the Jeep. Install was easy. Literally, less than 30 minute install.
Thanks again folks at e trailer.



by:

Easy ordering the product online, fast delivery. And installed by myself in less than 20 minutes..



by:

Arrived with a small scuff to the front of the hitch receiver which is unfortunately visible. Relatively easy driveway install - the biggest challenge was loosening the existing hardware but was able to manage by myself. Install video was appreciated and helpful



by:
Jeep Grand Cherokee

Installing the receiver was very easy. It does help to have a friend hold up the receiver while lining up the holes and threading in the screws. The e trailer hitch fit perfectly onto the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Going to use the hitch for a cargo carrier and also for a bike rack.

2020 Dodge Durango

Just installed my new etrailer on my 2020 dodge Durango, I can honestly say that I’m impressed by it, it’s definitely a two man job but the install was super easy. Didn’t even have to remove my spare tire

Thanks (etrailer)



by:
2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Easy install in less than 30 minutes and great instructions!



by:

Was extremely easy to install and since I was using it for just a bike rack I didn’t need to do any wiring. Have another set of hands to install it would have been helpful but I was able to get it done by myself using a couple blocks of wood to hold up the other side. Would highly recommend this product and etrailer



by:
2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Fit Perfectly, [online] video very helpful. Good instructions



by:

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.

I'm 71 but was able to help install this hitch with the help of my son. Just 4 bolts to remove and then put back in and fits my 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee WK perfectly

  • Can The Towing Capacity Of The Vehicle Be Lower Than The Trailer Hitch Receiver
    Towing capacity of the vehicle can depend on numerous factors so the best way to accurately determine what your specific vehicle's capacity is would be to reach out to your local dealership with your VIN and they can look up the exact capacity for you. Manufacturers do make trailer hitches that can exceed the capacity of the vehicle. You'll always be held to the lowest rated capacity though, which could be the vehicle's capacity or the hitch's capacity depending on the case. The etrailer...

    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...

  • Is There a Trailer Hitch for a 2020 Dodge Durango That Installs Behind the Bumper
    I do have an option for you but the only trailer hitches we currently offer for a 2020 Dodge Durango install under the bumper like the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98901 which is what I recommend using. The good news is that this style of hitch is very easy to install, there is no bumper removal or modifications required. It has a class III rating with 2" opening that is great for everything from towing to hitch mounted accessories like bike rack and cargo carriers.

    It sounds like you're looking for a hitch for your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT and the Draw-Tite # 75699 is a confirmed fit on the SRT and will have a concealed cross tube that will keep most of the hitch hidden. If you're going to be towing with this hitch, you'll also need a wiring harness. For that I recommend the T-One # 118727 which will give you a 4 way trailer harness that's easy to install since it just tees into the tail lights.

    I believe if the Summit package has a hitch then it has the tow package.

    I do have an option for you but there are no custom bolt-on trailer hitch options for a 1988 Jeep MJ Comanche. You can't use a custom fit option for another vehicle either, you'll have to a universal one such as the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Service Body Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 41990-16. The side brackets can be modified to fit your application whether that means cutting, drilling, or welding. They are 16" long which you will need for such as deep drop bumper.

This hangs below the rear bumper completely and will give you a higher capacity 2 inch trailer hitch.
