Can Curt C51701 Better Weight Tongue Weight/Payload Scale Weigh 1996 Jeep Cherokee


Can Better Weigh give me the weight of my 1996 Jeep Cherokee? I suppose I could get its weight via the Better Weigh when I have it loaded on my trailer and hitched to my 2017 Ram 1500, but I am curious is it can read the weight of the XJ directly from its own OBDII port. Thanks,

Yes it can. As long as the vehicle in question is a 1996 or newer with an OBDII port, the Curt # C51701 Better Weigh will work for you. However, if you've altered the suspension from stock, or for vehicles older than a 2008 model you'll need to manually program the unit. If you need to manually program it the smart phone app will walk you through the process which will take 5-10 minutes. I've linked to a video showing how the Better Weigh works.
