Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2017 Jeep Cherokee Overland With Tow Package


Buying a 2017 Jeep Cherokee Overland with Trailer Prep Group. Need receiver hitch. The products on the website show one for Latitude, Sport and Limited Trims, and a different one for Trailhawk. Overland is not listed, and it is different from Latitude, sport and Limited. May be same as Trailhawk since both share some suspension components, but not sure.

I called my contact at Curt and they told me they are carrying over all of the trailer hitches from the 2016 models to the 2017s. From my research it looks like the Overland is an upgraded trim level, and does not affect a trailer hitch option.

With that being the case I recommend the Curt trailer Hitch, part # C13171. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2-inch receiver opening.

If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in 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 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.
