How to Install a Curt 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 Curt class three hitch receiver on our 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee.Let's go over a few of the features. You can see the cross tube is visible, where it has a round tube design, so it fits nicely with the contour of the vehicle. It's going to have a nice black powder coat finish, it's going to help resist any rust or corrosion. It's going to be a class three hitch, two inch by two inch receiver tube opening.

We're going to have a nice reinforced collar to give us a little extra stability there.We're going to have plate style safety chain loops, gives us plenty of room for different size safety chain hooks. Hitch pin holes are going to be 5/8 inch diameter, it's going to take a standard 5/8ths hitch pin. Hitch pin and clip does not come with this hitch, however, it can be found here at eTrailer.com. We're going to have plate style safety chain loops, that's going to give us plenty of room for different sized safety chain hooks. That plate is going to be welded on the bottom of our cross tube in the bottom of our receiver tube.

Our receiver tube is going to have a nice reinforced collar to give us a little extra stability there.As far as weight capacities go, we're going to have a 600 pound maximum ton weight, which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube, and it's 6,000 pound gross trailer weight, which is trailer plus load included. You can use weight distribution with this. Ton weight is going to go up to 750 pounds. Trailer weight is going to go up to 7,500 pounds. I do recommend the owner's manual of your vehicle to make sure the vehicle can withstand that amount of weight.

We want to go with the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch.Now let's give you a few measurement to help you when deciding on any of the hitch mount accessories 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 4 inches. This number's important for any of your hitch mount accessories that may fold up against your vehicle. From the ground to the top innermost part of the receiver tube is going to be about 14 3/4 inches. This number is important for any of your hitch mounted accessories that may require more ground clearance.Now that we've gone over some of the features, let's show you how to get it installed.

First thing we 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 21mm socket, we're going to remove those bolts. Again, we're going to have two on the inside of the passenger side of the frame rail, two on the inside of the driver's side frame rail.Now, with an extra set of hands, we're going to lift our hitch into place, and we're going to reinstall our hardware. Once you have your hardware tightened down, we're going to torque it to the specification in the instructions.That's going to complete our look at an installation on the Curt class three trail hitch receiver.
