The base plates for your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee that are compatible with the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar # RM-520 are the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms # RM-521440-4 or the EZ5 Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms # RM-521440-5. I have attached an installation video of these for you. To have them installed, you will want to contact a local auto shop.

Other components needed to flat tow your Grand Cherokee are towed vehicle wiring, a supplemental braking system, and safety cables. You may also need a wiring extension to connect the vehicle wiring to the motorhome's wiring and a high-low adapter in order to tow your vehicle level.

The wiring I recommend is the Roadmaster Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit, # RM-154.

The supplemental braking system I recommend is the Even Brake # RM-9400. This portable system offers proportional braking for your towed vehicle and is easy to install and remove from the towed vehicle. You need a stop light switch # RM-751449 for the install.

As long as you are not using magnetic tow lights, you will want the Brake Lite Relay # RM-88400 to prevent your Grand Cherokee's brake signal from overriding the turn singal being sent from the RV when applying breaks through a turn.

If you need safety cables, I recommend the # RM-643. I have attached links to the product pages for our wiring extensions and high-low adapters for you.

If your Falcon 2 # RM-520 was involved in the accident that totaled your previous towed vehicle, the integrity of the tow bar is likely compromised, even if no damage was evident. If the tow bar was damaged, replacing the tow bar is the safest option.

I recommend checking your owner's manual for the required steps to flat tow your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I found the owner's manual to list only the 4-Wheel Drive with 4-LO Range model Grand Cherokees as flat towable.
