Review of the Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited


Today on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, we're test fitting the Curt 20x60 Cargo Carrier, part number C18150. It's got a 500 pound weight capacity and is designed to work with 2 inch hitches. The first thing we're going to do is take a few measurements. We have about 20 3/4 inches of ground clearance. It's because we've got that nice raised shank in the back here, so it's going to lift that up even higher than a normal straight shank would. Our overall to the back of the Jeep, we're adding about 29 1/4 inches there. Now if we take a look at our closest distance, I can barely fit my pinky in there.

It's pretty close with this kind of tire. The size of it is 255/75R17. So just be aware of that if you've got a tire that's bigger than this one, that you may run into an issue with that clearance there. You don't want to purchase a cargo carrier that's going to make contact there with your rear tire, or your spare tire. Now we do have a single exhaust passenger side on this vehicle, and it does shoot down towards the ground once it comes out, so we shouldn't have to worry about carrying any heat-sensitive materials on our cargo carrier. Also, because of how this carrier is positioned, we won't be able to access that back hatch area here. Then we also have a hitch pin and clip holding that carrier in.

That hitch pin and clip is not included, but you can find that on our website, part number PC3, and that's going to be our completed look at the Curt 20x16 Cargo Carrier and how it works on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Let's see how it does on our test course. Here on our test course, we'll start by going through the slalom. This is going to show us the side to side action, which simulates turning corners or evasive maneuvers. Once we get to the alternating speed bumps, we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or pothole, or driving over uneven pavement. Once we get to the full speed bumps, we'll see the up and down action.

This will be just like driving in and out of a parking lot, garage, or driveway.
