2005 Jeep Questions and Answers


  • Is Factory Sway Control on a Ford Truck Good Enough for Towing a Trailer
  • The built-in sway control on your 2013 Ford truck works by apply the brake or more or less power to one side of the vehicle to correct a sway condition when detected. This is a passive system and will only engage when swaying already has started. If you used a Strait-Line system like # RP66083 the dual-cam sway control works as an active system. It will keep the truck and trailer in a straight line which stops sway before it starts. You could technically have the Ford system on with...

  • Demco Excali-bar Compatibility With Roadmaster D-Ring Adapters RM-035
  • I reached out to my contact at Demco and he confirmed that the Demco Excali-bar will work with the Roadmaster # RM-035 Adapters for your Jeep. However, the Roadmaster D-ring Adapters are not confimed to fit a Rugged Ridge XHD bumper, so if that is the model you have there are not base plates confirmed to fit.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2005 Jeep Liberty Renegade Behind an RV
  • I'm glad you asked because there are several subtle things to consider and other not so subtle things when flat towing a vehicle. The first place to start is the vehicle owner's manual. I checked the owner's manual online for your 2005 Jeep Liberty Renegade. If you have a 4-wheel drive model it can be flat towed with 4 wheels down behind an RV. If it is a 2-wheel drive model it cannot be flat towed. If you have a model that can be flat towed then the first item needed is a set of...

  • How to Flat Tow a 2005 Jeep Wrangler TJ Behind a Motorhome
  • I would be happy to explain the flat towing procedure for your 2005 Jeep Wrangler. This information can also be found in the owners manual under the Recreational Towing section. The key to flat towing your Jeep is to make sure the transfer case is shifted into N (Neutral). The steps are listed below. 1. Make sure you are level ground before you start. 2. Depress the brake pedal 3. Shift automatic transmission into N (Neutral) or depress the clutch pedal on manual transmission. 4....

  • Axles Needed to Build Off Road Trailer
  • We do have a torsion type of axle that would be perfect for your application. I advise against using Jeep tires on your trailer. Passenger car tires have a sidewall that is a little more flexible and cannot perform as well as trailer tires on a trailer. The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System w Hubs # A35RS545 are a great option to use because they are much easier to install than standard axles and they add ground clearance since they do not have a thru-axle. Basically how you...

  • Brake Controller Installation-2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee w/ Factory 7-Way Trailer Connector
  • When Jeep installed the factory 7-way on the third generation Grand Cherokee, they ran the brake output circuit from the 7-way under the vehicle and into the passenger cabin below the dash. The output wire is either light green or blue in color, and should be bundled up by the emergency brake. The wire should have a tag or sticker that says 'trailer brake.' There isn't a plug-in wiring adapter available, the remaining connections would need to be hardwired using our brake controller installation...

  • Converting Trailer from 5-Way Connector to a 7-Way by Function
  • I've linked a help article that will give you the common color coding but on your trailer I wouldn't go by it. Even if they are correct you just never know so I suggest testing it. To test it cut off the 5-way connector that's on there and connect each wire to a 12-volt power source and see what functions. Then use a 7-way connector like the Hopkins # H20043 and connect the function to the correct leads. Even the Hopkins does not use the traditional color coding. Instead it uses...

  • Will the Hollywood Rack SE4 or Swagman Quad Bike Racks Fit on an 05 Jeep Wrangler With Spare Tire
  • I recommend the Swagman Quad Bike Rack, # S64692. This rack measures 9 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rack body when it is folded up. this will give you 1 inch clearance between your spare tire and the rack. The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider 4 Bike Rack, # HR1400, may fit on your 2005 Jeep Wrangler, but you will need to take one more measurement to be sure. Once installed and folded upright, the Sport Rider 4 will measure 6 inches from the face of the trailer hitch...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Lights Not Working With 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • You said you have the same problem as a customer had with a Nissan Titan. If you have a wiring harness installed and are having these issues, it sounds like you have a blown fuse or bad relay on your Jeep. I did some research and found that there are 2 relays for your vehicle for trailer towing. They are in position 5 and 6. These would be items you need to get from your dealer if they are missing or bad. The fuse box is located under the left side of the dash behind a panel. The fuses...

  • Recommended 5th-Wheel Hitch for 2017 Ram 1500 with RamBox
  • I do have a solution for you, however the sliding 5th-wheel hitches we have available are not recommended for use on a 2017 Ram 1500 that has the Rambox like yours. The issue is that the Rambox feature can interfere with a sliding hitch, which is what is typically needed on short bed trucks in order to provide proper clearance during sharp turns. To tow a 5th-wheel trailer with your Ram 1500, I recommend going with a fixed 5th wheel hitch like the Reese Select Plus # RP30081 along with...

  • Installing a Brake Controller on a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Connection Port Under the Dash
  • You are correct that there is a green wire exiting the brake controller connector under the dash of your 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The problem is that since your vehicle is not equipped with the tow package the wire is terminated somewhere inside the wiring harness and is very difficult to find. The best route for you to take is to make sure that the Power wire and the stoplight switch wire in the connector are active. Use a circuit tester, item # ALL640595, to test the ports in the...

  • Will the CURT # D900 Multi-Ball Adjustable Ball Mount Work on a 2005 Jeep Liberty at Maximum Rise
  • I produced a short video and added dimensions to a photo for you so that you could measure and be sure the CURT Multi-Ball Adjustable Ball Mount, # D900, would work on your 2005 Jeep Liberty with rear mounted spare tire. The most critical measurements are going to be measurement A and E, see photo. As long as the distance out from the center of your hitch pin hole, 7 inches, and distance up to the top of the ball from the inside top of the receiver, 6-3/4 inches, will clear your spare...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Behind a Motor Home
  • The capacity of any given trailer hitch is set in stone whether it is a weld-on application or a bolt on. So basically, since your 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee weighs 6,150 pounds, trailer hitch # 13703 would not be sufficient. You will want to look at heavy duty truck hitches, see link, and have it installed by a professional welder. After you have a hitch with enough capacity installed you can then get all the items needed to flat tow the 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. You will need base...

  • Installing Brake Controller on 2005 Jeep Liberty with Factory Tow Package
  • On vehicles that are equipped with the factory tow package, Jeep typically runs a light green wire from the 7-way to the passenger compartment to carry the output from the brake controller. This wire can be found under the dash to the left of the steering column or sometimes behind the kick plate on the left side of the foot well. This green wire would attach to the output wire of the brake controller, which is typically a blue wire. The three remaining wires would need to be connected....

  • Brake Controller Installation on 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee w/ OEM 7-Way Trailer Connector
  • Since your Grand Cherokee is equipped with the factory 7-way trailer connector (if it says Mopar on the flap covering the 7-way, it's the factory connector), the brake controller connection has been partially wired, but there isn't a plug and play option for installing a brake controller. Jeep will have ran the brake controller output circuit from under the dash on the driver's side back to the 7-way. Look for a coiled up blue or light green wire located near the emergency brake pedal...

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness for 2005 Jeep Liberty
  • Of the three harnesses you mentioned, the # 118381 wouldn't work unless your Liberty has the OEM 7-way connector. The # 118381 would plug inline between the 7-way connector and the vehicle wiring harness. If your Liberty does not have the factory 7-way, your choices would be between the Tow Ready # 118524 and the Curt # C55382. Both harnesses would install in the same manner, plugging inline at the point where the taillight assemblies plug into the vehicle wiring. I'd recommend the...

  • Plug and Play Trailer Wiring Options for 2005 Jeep Liberty W/O Tow Package
  • We do indeed have two plug and play trailer wiring harness options for your 2005 Jeep Liberty. If your trailer has minimal lighting- just a stop/turn/tail light for the passenger and drivers side, the Curt # C55382 would be an excellent choice. This harness has a simple installation, which would plug inline with the connectors on the back of the taillight assemblies. If your trailer has more extensive lighting, say what is mentioned above plus some clearance and/or marker lights on the...

  • Information on Brake Controller Wiring on a 2005 Jeep Liberty
  • Which connector does your vehicle have on the rear bumper? If it's the 4 pole flat connector, you'll need the Brake Controller 7 & 4 Way Installation Kit - 10 Gauge, part # ETBC7, hardwired brake controller installation kit. We have an FAQ brake page that I attached in a link below that will explain the installation procedure. Your 4 pole connector will plug into the 7 way connector included in the kit, and you will run a brake wire up to the cab for the controller, as well as a...

  • Tail Light Converter Recommendation for a Motorhome with Separate Tail Lights
  • It sounds like you have separate tail lights on your motor home. Meaning that the stop/tail lights are not on the same bulb as the turn signals, and that your current wiring is set up for combined tail light wiring. We have a converter that will need to install onto the wiring of your motorhome so that the signal will be split appropriately. You would want a Vehicle to Vehicle Taillight Converter # 118158. To wire it in you will need to take the right turn/stop circuit and run it...

  • How to Install a Brake Controller in a 2005 Jeep Liberty
  • To install a brake controller in your 2006 Jeep Liberty with a factory 7-Way you will need to hardwire the wires from the back of the brake controller to the vehicle. This vehicle does not have a brake controller port that you can plug the brake controller into. I am including a link to the installation instructions for the Prodigy P2 brake controller # 90885. This is our most popular brake controller because of how easy it is to set up and how well it works. The four wires on the back...

  • Will Equalizer Kit # K71-359-00 Replace TREQ356 Equalizers on 2013 Maclander Car Trailer
  • Your current equalizers 5-3/4 inches long from eye center to eye center front to back and then are 2-1/2 inches vertically. This is the same as what comes with the # K71-359-00 so this would work well for what you need.

  • Will the Surco Spare-Tire-Mounted Cargo Basket Fit 33x12.5R15 Tires on a 2005 Jeep Wrangler
  • I checked with Surco and the Spare-Tire-Mounted Cargo Basket, # SPSJ4319, is made to fit any size spare tire that can be mounted on the back of your 2005 Jeep Wrangler. Though it will be a tight fit based on this information it should still work. I have included a link to a video review for you.

  • How to Wire the Roadmaster Single Park Light Diode # RM-690
  • Wiring in the parking light diode # RM-690 is easy. All you have to do is locate the wire leading to the parking light bulb. Cut the wire and insert the diode in-line with the wiring. The IN side will be the part of the wire that leads to the front of the vehicle. The OUT side goes to the bulb. Using these diodes prevents back feeding problems when using a supplemental braking system. I included a picture showing how you would wire the diode.

  • Recommendation For Hitch Cargo Carrier To Clear Spare Tire on 2005 Jeep Liberty
  • We have done a hitch installation on a similar model Jeep Liberty (2007) and have measured the clearance needed for a hitch accessory to clear the spare tire. The measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole on the hitch to the farthest part on the back of your vehicle, which would be your spare tire, is 14-1/2 inches. I am including a link to the video of the installation and it will show the measurement at the 2 minute and 25 second mark on the video. To be sure of the clearance...

  • Safety Chain Capacity and Requirements for a 6-Ton Triple Axle Trailer
  • The highest rated safety chains we carry at this time are the 35 inch Long Safety Chain with Clevis Slip Hook, 5,400 lbs., item # 1483-535-04, that you mentioned. Two of these chains are rated for 10,800 pounds working load limit and 32,400 (16,200 lbs each) breaking strength, and should be sufficient for your towing limit of 10,000 lbs. Safety chain requirements state that the breaking strength of each chain, not the working load limit of the chain, should be equal to or exceed the...

  • What Lug Nut Covers Are Available To Fit A 2004 Forest River Trailer
  • The hub covers that I have are only available in chrome ABS finish. The Quick Trim Chrome Finish Trailer Hub Cover 6 on 5-1/2, part # QT655C, is a cover that will fit a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern wheel. The Quick Trim Chrome Finish Trailer Hub Cover 5 on 4-1/2, part # QT545C, will fit a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. These hub covers will only cover the center hub and lug nuts. I also have the Quick Trim Wheel Liner 6 on 5-1/2, part # QT655CLO, and the Quick Trim Wheel Liner 5 on 4-1/2,...

  • Will the Convert-A-Ball Dual Cushioned Ball Mount Work at Max Rise on a 2005 Jeep Liberty
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled the Convert-A-Ball Dual-Cushioned, Adjustable Ball Mount, # CAB-UM, and took some measurements for you. The most critical measurement is going to be the measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole, to the back of the ball platform, which is 6 inches, and the measurement from the top of the receiver shank to the top of the ball platform, which is 8-1/2 inches, in the max rise position, see photo link. As long as the distance out from the center...

  • Tips for Installing a Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2005 Jeep Wrangler
  • When installing a trailer wiring harness such as # 118409 on your 2005 Jeep Wrangler the connection on the passenger's side of the vehicle is a little harder to get to. Instead of reach in from underneath to find it like on the driver's side, try reaching in from the side of the vehicle up near the bumper. I have included a link to a different video, installation is the same, but it is a little clearer than the video on the 2005.

  • Recommended Flat Towing Setup for a 2005 Jeep Liberty With Roadmaster EZ4 Base PLate Kit
  • I really like the base plate kits that have the removable arms like the Roadmaster EZ4 # RM-521423-4 does because it will give your vehicle, your 2005 Jeep Liberty in this instance, much more of an OEM look when you are not flat towing it. I do not recommend using the Tow Ready Adjustable Tow Bar # 63180 as it is a very entry-level tow bar that requires the tow bar mounting brackets to be bolted to your bumper. For some applications there will need to be a custom bracket installed due...
