How to Install a Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch on a 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee


Shane: Hi, I'm Shane with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the draw tite class three max frame trailer hitch receiver on our 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee.One of the nice things that I like about this and what's going to set it apart from others is our cross tube is completely hidden behind our bumper fascia. Only thing that we can see is our receiver tube. This is going to help maintain a nice clean look on the back of our vehicle.It's going to be a class three hitch. It's going to give us a two inch by two inch receiver tube opening. Receiver tube's going to have a reinforced collar, give us a little extra stability there.

Hitch pin hole is going to be five eighths inch in diameter. It's going to take a standard five eighths inch hitch pin. The hitch pin and clip does not come with this hitch. However, it can be found here at etrailer.com.Another thing that's going to set this hitch apart from others is this second hole here. This is for a J-pin stabilization device only.

What the J-pin does is it takes any of the shaking plate out of any of your hitch mount accessories. We're going to have ring style or rolled steel style safety chain loops. You can see, it's going to give us plenty of room for different size hooks.Another thing that's going to set this hitch apart is we're going to have a welded bracket here on the side. This is for any wiring sets you may want to add later on. As far as our weight capacities go, we're going to have a 500 pound max ton weight, which is a downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube.

The 5,000 pound gross trailer weight, which is the trailer plus the load included.You can use weight distribution with this hitch. Tongue weights going to go up to 750 pounds. Trailer weights going to go up to 7,500 pounds. It's a good idea to check the Owner's manual of your Jeep to make sure the vehicle can withstand that amount of weight. You're going to go with the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch.Let's give you a few measurements to help you in deciding on any hitch mount accessory you may need such as a bike rack, ball mount, or cargo carrier.

From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most part of the bumper, it's going to be about four inches. This numbers important for any of your hitch mount accessories that may fold up against your vehicle. From the ground to the top inner most part of the receiver tube, it's going to be about 15 inches. This numbers important for any of your hitch mount accessories that may require extra ground clearance.Now that we've gone over some of the features, let's show you how to get it installed. First thing you want to do is you're going to have two bolts on each side of the vehicle on the inside of the frame rails. Take a 21 millimeter socket, we're going to remove those bolts. Again, we're going to have two on the inside of the passenger side frame rail, two on the inside of the driver side frame rail.With an extra set of hands, we'll put the hitch into place. We're going to reinstall our factory hardware. Once you have all your hardware installed, go ahead and tighten everything down, and then we're going to torque it to specifications in the instructions.That's going to finish our look at and installation on the draw tite class three max frame trailer hitch receiver on our 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
