Will the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36260 Fit a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport


Im seeing conflicting info as to whether this would fit my 1999 jeep cherokee sport. Can you please confirm?


Expert Reply:

The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36260 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport. There is some drilling required though for the installation.

The part # 36260 that you mentioned is a 1-1/4 inch receiver with a Gross Towing Weight (GTW) of 3,500 lbs and a Tongue Weight (TW) of 300 lbs.

If you are looking to get the most out of your trailer hitch receiver then I recommend going with the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75054 which is a 2 inch receiver. It has the same weight ratings unless you use a Weight Distribution system, then those ratings are increased to 5,500 lbs GTW and 550 lbs TW. Drilling may be required on models equipped with a frame-mounted, closed-sided, steel skid shield.

Two inch receivers are a better option than 1-1/4 inch receivers because they have more options when it comes to accessories.

I have included some installation videos for you to review as well.
