Are there any additional modifications needed to install the Curt Class III # C13171 hitch for the dual tip exhaust 2016 Jeep Cherokee Or, it is the same the install process used for the 4 cylinder, single exhaust Jeep Cherokee...

Great question and no there is no additional modifications to install the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" Item # C13171 on a 2016 Jeep Cherokee with dual exhaust. It may make it a little easier to lower the exhaust by removing the bolts that hold the hangers in place. It will provide a little extra room for installing the hardware.

I have provided a link to a video on a 2015 Jeep Cherokee with dual exhaust to help walk you through the instillation. The instillation will be the same.

If you ever plan on towing I recommend T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector
Item # 118605. I have provided a link to a video to help walk you through how to get this installed.

No-Drill Mount for Electrical Mounting Bracket - Short Item # 18140 and Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat Item # 18144 for the 2016 Jeep Cherokee without factory tow package to give your wiring a more permanent mounting location.


7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket w/ Mounting Bracket, Chrysler/Dodge OEM Plug Adapter
Item # HM40975-11933 if you do have a factory tow package along with No-Drill Mount Bracket, Long
Item # 18136
