Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Jeep Cherokee - Curt

Today on our 2017 Jeep Cherokee, we're going to take a look at, and also show you how to install, the Curt custom fit Class III trailer hitch receiver. This offers the 2-inch x 2-inch receiver tube opening. It's part number is C13172. Here's what our hitch is going to look like installed. As you can see, this is going to be one of the cleanest-looking Cherokee hitches out there. That cross tube remains hidden up behind our bumper, so we're not dealing with that whole visual cross tube situation.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2015 Jeep Cherokee - Draw-Tite

Today on this 2015 Jeep Cherokee we're going to review and install the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch, part number 75998. All right, this is what the hitch looks like when it's installed on our Jeep Cherokee. You'll notice it does sit below down the bumper here, and it does require a cutout in the bumper. It's all on the bottom, so you really can't see the cutout when you're standing up away from the vehicle. Now, our hitch is a class III, which gives us a two-inch receiver opening right here. You also have some nice finished collar that's also reinforcement for the end of the hitch. On the bottom here we have our safety chain loops here.

It's going to come over and meet at our receiver tube opening.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2015 Jeep Cherokee - Draw-Tite

Today, on our 2015 Jeep Cherokee, we're going to be taking a look at installing a draw 00:00:04 type trailer hitch receiver. Class two, part number 36545. Here's what it looks like once we have it installed. You can see it's going to fit along the bottom of your bumper. It's not going to stick down any further than your factory exhaust system does. It's just going to cover it up.



Best 2015 Jeep Cherokee Hitch Options

Today on our 2015 Jeep Cherokee we'll be looking at the most popular hitch options. On the top here we have a class three CURT, part number C13172. In the middle we have a class three CURT, part number C13171. On the bottom we have a class two Draw-Tite, part number 36545. I'm going to go ahead and start with these two CURTs here on the top. Besides them both being class three, they both have the same weight capacity rating of 5,000 pound gross trailer weight rating and 750 pound max tongue weight rating.



Best 2014 Jeep Cherokee Hitch Options

Today on our 2014 Jeep Cherokee we'll be looking at the most popular hitch options. On the top here we have a class three CURT, part number C13172.

Best 2016 Jeep Cherokee Hitch Options

Today on a a 2016 Jeep Cherokee, we'll be looking at the most popular hitch options. On the top here, we have a class 3 curt, part number C13172, and then in the middle we have a class 3 curt, part number C13171, and on the bottom, we have a class 2 draw tie, part number 36545. I'm going to go ahead and start with these 2 curts here on the top. Besides them both being class 3, they both have the same weight capacity rating of 5,000 pound gross trailer weight rating, and 750 max tongue weight rating, and if you use weight distribution, the gross trailer weight rating will increase to 6,000 pounds with weight distribution, and the max tongue weight rating will stay the same at 750 pounds. This is the same for both of these hitches. Now you may ask, what is the difference between these 2 if they have the same weight capacities and they're both from the same brand Simple, this one here is completely recessed behind the bumper cover of the vehicle, whereas this one hangs down below it. You may ask why is that important Well, in order for this one to sit behind your bumper cover, you have to trim out about a 3 inch by 4 inch hole for this part here of the hitch to rest through, so this part will stick out below. For example, we have this one currently installed on our Jeep Cherokee that we have here with us today, and we have a little look at it, you can see what we had to do for it to fit. This hitch will provide us with the cleanest installation. You won't have to have anything hanging below the body of the vehicle at all, besides the 2x2 class 3 receiver here. Also, another difference between these 2 is the safety chain loops. On this one, it's a tubular design.

As far as the Cherokee hitches are concerned, this is one of my favorites. I really like the way it looks. we don't have that cross tube that's going to go all the way across, it's going to remain completely hidden up here behind our fascia.

The main body of the hitch is completely hidden behind the rear fascia of the vehicle so it's a real clean install. It looks exactly like what a factory hitch would look like on most vehicles. It also sticks in nicely from the rear bumper cover here so when you're walking behind the back of the vehicle to put stuff in the hatch, you don't have to worry about running your knee into it or your legs. That's a nice selling point of it there. This hitch has a maximum ton weight rating of 750 pounds and a max trailer weight rating of up to 5,000 pounds.

I have linked instructions for both hitches as well as a video showing an example installation for the Curt hitch. For either hitch if you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Installed by Dealer on 2016 Jeep Cherokee Sport Keeps Burning Out
  • If there is a short on the trailer, a damaged wire on the vehicle side, exposed wiring, wiring attached to the wrong circuit, or if the trailer light power draw exceeds what the wiring harness is capable of any of those things could cause a converter to blow. If they are installing the factory harness in your 2016 Jeep Cherokee then you might try a different dealer. If it is an aftermarket harness again a different dealer or trusted mechanic should perform the installation. That is to say...

  • Comparison of Curt Class III Trailer Hitch Receivers for 2015 Jeep Cherokee Limited
  • The main difference between Curt Class III Trailer Hitch Receivers # C13172 and # C13171 is the appearance. The # C13172 hides the cross tube of the hitch so all the is exposed under your 2015 Jeep Cherokee Limited is the receiver opening. On the # C13171 you will be able to see the majority of the hitch. This is also the reason for the fascia trimming on the # C13172. The receiver opening us under the fascia while the cross tube is hidden away behind it. So there needs to be an opening...

  • How to Fix Trailer Hitch Rattle on a 2015 Jeep Cherokee
  • Exhaust rattle is more common that you would think when installing trailer hitches. This is because the vehicle manufacturing process does not always leave the exhaust in the exact same location on every single vehicle. The rattling you are experiencing is not common on your 2015 Jeep Cherokee, but I have seen it before. The issue is that the side edges of the muffler are hitting against the back of the hitch's crosstube. If you crawl under the back of your Jeep, you will likely see...

  • How to Confirm Towing Capacity of 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk V6
  • A vehicle has a towing weight capacity that is determined by the auto makers at the time of manufacture based on its frame, engine and drivetrain. A trailer hitch too will have a specific towing capacity (which appears on its safety sticker) that does not change; it is determined by the hitch maker that engineered it. A hitch does not know or care whether you or a factory worker bolted it on, so long as it was installed properly. That said, other features on a vehicle can affect its...

  • Revised Curt Trailer Hitch Installation Instructions for 2015 Jeep Cherokee Latitude
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt and he said the installation instructions for part # C13172 pertain to all Jeep Cherokee models, and are not specific to the Latitude. This can cause some confusion. What you will want to do is temporarily remove the fascia before lowering the exhaust pipe. After that you can follow the instructions as they are set down. I have included a link to those instructions for you to check out as well as an installation video.
