Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude to Tow Boat Trailer


Hello, I have a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude. I want to put a trailer hitch receiver and harness on for a 20ft bass boat. What would you recommend for that setup? Thanks

For your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee the trailer hitch I recommend is the Draw-Tite # 75699, which is a 2" receiver with a maximum tongue weight of 750 lbs and a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 lbs. This hitch has gotten universal praise from our customers, with over 450 reviews giving it a nearly unanimous 5 stars. The accompanying photo shows how the hitch looks when installed on a Grand Cherokee.

For a wiring harness, if you do not have a factory tow package you need the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118727. If you do have the factory tow package you can use the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package - 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C55384 to add a 4-flat. I've added links to video reviews and installs of both harnesses for you to take a look at.

Since you are going to be towing, I recommend checking out Ball Mount Kit # 989900, which may fulfill your towing needs in one tidy package; two ball mounts - one with a 3/4” rise or 2” drop and the other with a 2-3/4” rise or 4” drop - a 1-7/8” hitch ball, a 2” hitch ball, and a pin and clip. You can use the link to the help article on ball mounts I've added to determine if this kit will give you the correct amount of drop or rise. I've also attached links to a video review of the ball mount kit and our page with each of our ball mounts.
