Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Question:

I have a 2016 GMC Sierra Diesel Dually long bed and a Truck Camper that I camp and travel with. I want to flat tow my Grand Cherokee behind me at times. I have a Reese Titan Hitch Box extension 24/34 inch. that I currently use with my small cargo enclosed trailer. Can I use a Blue Ox Alpha Motor Home Mount Tow Bar BX7365 with the Blue Ox Base Plate BX1128 and the Patriot Radio Freq Portable braking system BRK2012? Also is there anything else I would need to complete the package? Your advice and comments are greatly appreciated. Many Thanks,

Helpful Expert Reply:

You can flat tow a vehicle with a Reese Titan Hitch Extender like part # RP45292. For a base plate kit confirmed as a fit for your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee the Blue Ox kit part # BX1128 is a confirmed fit.

For a tow bar the Blue Ox Alpha part # BX7365 that you mentioned would be an excellent choice that would work well. The Blue Ox Patriot part # BRK2016 would be a great option as well. This is our most recommended braking system.

For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your tow vehicle to control the taillight assemblies of the towed vehicle. This comes with a round 6-way connector that you will install on the front of your towed vehicle and enough coiled wire to go from there to the RV.

I have included a couple of helpful links to our articles on flat towing for you. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual for more specific information on flat towing your vehicle.
