Curt hitch fit perfectly as expected however 1 of the welded nuts was filled with powder coat and broke off when cleaning threads. Required a trip to the hardware store for 1/2” grade 8 nut to replace it. Tekonsha wiring harness worked well.

Excellent fit. Your step by step video was the key for me doing this on my own. I saved $500 thanks to your hitch price and do it yourself video.

Great product. Fit exactly as expected. The installation video was spot on as well. Took me about 1-1/2 hours to install. Definitely make sure to have some painters tape as recomened in the video to apply to the tailights and paint to eliminate at potential scratching. Etrailer communicated with me from the time I ordered the hitch to the time it was delivered. Great experience and would recomend etrailer to anyone.

Easy install, just take your time removing the rear bumper and Dacia…




by:

Seems to fit nice. If it’s tight against the spare tire check to make sure the tire is seated right. We could not get it to line up because it was so tight against the spare. We lowered the spare and gave it a little shove forward and everything fell into place.

  • Best Hitch for a 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    We have some great options for hitches for your 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee but the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver item # C97JR only fits the L model. I have confirmed this with Curt. I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver item # 75699. This hitch is confirmed to fit your 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It bolts to your Jeep with included hardware and does not require any cutting or drilling. Like the Curt hitch this one has a concealed cross tube so all you will see is the 2"...

  • Does Curt Trailer Hitch Install Behind Rear Bumper Hitch Cover on 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L
    Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C97JR installs behind the rear bumper and hitch cover on your 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L. When the hitch bumper cover is in place the hitch will be completely hidden. You will have to remove the panel to use the hitch. If you plan on doing some towing you will also need wiring. I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # TK39VR. This will plug into existing wiring so no cutting or splicing is required. Once installed you will have a 4-way...

  • Recommended Hitch and Wiring for a 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Without a Tow Package
    The hitch that I recommend for your 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C97JR. This hitch is made in the USA and has a bolt-on, no-drill installation. It will provide you with a 2" hitch receiver which is the most common size used for hitch mounted accessories such as bike racks, cargo carriers and ball mounts. For wiring you can use the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # TK39VR which plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located behind the driver's-side...

  • Trailer Hitch Fit for 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L
    The Draw-Tite # 75338 is a fit for the 2006-2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee, so it won't fit your 2022 Grand Cherokee L. I'd recommend the Curt # C97JR Class III hitch which is a confirmed fit. If you'll be towing with the hitch, you'll also need a trailer wiring harness like # 119147KIT, a ball mount like # 2753 and a trailer ball like # 19260 for a 1-7/8 inch or # 63845 for a 2 inch trailer ball.

  • Recommended Hitch and Wiring Harness for a 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L
    Yes, we do have a hitch for your 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L. It is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch item # DT57GR. This hitch is custom fit and bolts directly to your Jeep's frame with included hardware. The Draw-Tite item # DT57GR mounts directly behind your rear bumper and is accessed via a pop out panel. When you are not towing it is completely concealable. I have linked an installation video below. For a wiring harness you will want the Tekonsha 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector...

  • Parts Needed To Tow With A 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L

This fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your Jeep Grand Cherokee L's frame with no welding required. From there you can then install a trailer wiring harness, the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # TK39VR you referenced is perfect for your Cherokee without factory tow...

  • Recommended Hitch And Wiring For A 2021 Grand Cherokee L Hitch
    As the maximum towing capacity for a 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L is 7,200 pounds and the maximum tongue weight capacity is 720 pounds (equipped with all-wheel drive and the 5.7L V8), either hitch will be limited by the capacity of your vehicle. With that said, the American made Curt # C97JR is the hitch I tend to recommend, though it does not come with the wiring bracket the Draw-Tite # DT57GR has. Curt doesn't use this bracket on any of their hitches, unfortunately, but this does not mean...

  • Comparing Trailer Hitches For A 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L
    For your 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L, we have two options. We have the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C97JR, and the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT57GR. Both of these hitches are class III hitches that offer a 7,500lbs maximum GTW and can be used with a weight distribution system, however, the Draw-Tite # DT57GR has a tongue weight that is rated 375lbs higher than # C97JR. So if you're after the hitch that has the highest ratings, then # DT57GR is what you want. Although,...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L
    Yes, the Curt # C97JR will install behind the bumper and will be completely hidden with the bumper cover in place. For wiring, you will need to start with the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # TK39VR. I would choose this over the Curt since we have found Tekonsha to be the most reliable. The wiring harness will plug into connection points behind your tail lights and provide you with a 4-way. Once your 4-way is installed you can use the Universal Installation Kit for Trailer Brake Controller...

  • 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a Bike Rack and Towing
    I like the Draw-Tite # DT57GR over the Curt # C97JR for your 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L because it has an integrated bracket for attaching wiring and then the safety chain loops have slightly easier access to them over the Curt. I've attached installation videos for each for you to check out. If you don't already have a bike rack I recommend checking out the Kuat Piston Pro X Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # KU98VR because it's easy to use and can accommodate a wide variety of bike frame styles....
