Recommended Trailer Brake Controller for 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Factory 7-Way


I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4wd. It has the factory 7 pin receptacle at the bumper. No controller in the vehicle. I will be towing a 2 axle RV, on road. What controller is right for me?

For your 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee I highly recommend the Tekonsha Primus IQ Brake Controller # TK90160. This is an excellent proportional controller that will activate the brakes on your 2 axle trailer at the same time and with the same intensity that you apply to them in your Jeep. Its easy-to-read LED display will also allow for easy option and alert you to any potential issues with continuous diagnostic checks.

Since your Jeep is already equipped with thte factory 7-Way you just need the Wiring Kit # 5506 to install the controller. This kit includes a length of duplex cable to reach from the brake controller to the battery via a 30 amp circuit breaker (which is also included).

I have attached an installation video of a similar brake controller on the 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The process will be just about identical with the Primus IQ on your 2005 model.
