Which Hitch for a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude Does Not Require Trimming of the Fascia?


Could this be used for 2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude V6 if extra hardware was purchased separately for the upper and lower parts of the trailer. I prefer the look of the tube trailer vs the square tubing. I am looking for way that I do not have to cut the fascia considering that the vehicle is leased. Thank you for your help.

I can certainly understand not wanting to make any permanent alterations to your vehicle due to the lease. With that in mind, the only hitch for your vehicle which does not require trimming of the fascia is the Curt Class 3 Hitch, part # C13171. This hitch hangs below the fascia and requires no drilling or trimming. I've provided a link to a video of the installation.

I checked with my contact at Draw-Tite and he confirmed that they would not recommend adapting Round Tube Receiver Hitch, part # 75838, for use on your Latitude. The connection points on the Trailhawk and Latitude models are accessed differently and you would be unable to make this hitch work.

To complete your towing package, you will also need the wiring harness, part # C56208, a ball mount kit like part # 989900, which provides 2 different ball mounts and both 1-7/8 and 2 inch balls.
