What is the Towing Capacity of a 1999 Jeep Cherokee


I have a boat contender 20 feet can the hitch tow without any problems to break? My vehicle is a 1999 Cherokee Jeep and where are the screws falling perfect? I need you to answer me as soon as possible I am interested in buying the hitch! Thank you

The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75054 that you referenced which is a fit for your 1999 Jeep Cherokee has a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 lbs or 5,500, lbs when used with a weight distribution system. However, the vehicle likely has a lower towing capacity so you will need to check this and abide by the lower of the two figures. In order to find the vehicle's towing capacity you will want to take a look for the white tag on the driver's door jamb and find the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) and gross combined weight rating (GCWR). Once you find them you can subtract the GVWR from the GCWR and that will give you your towing capacity.

I am not sure what you mean by, "where are the screws falling perfect" but the hitch comes with all the hardware needed for installation. I have attached a sample install video for you as well.
