Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Jeep Cherokee Overland


What hitch would work best on a 2017 Jeep Cherokee Overland? Your site lists all models, but the Overland, and the 2017 model can now come with a tow package.

We spoke with Curt and they informed us that they are carrying over all of the trailer hitches from the 2016 models to the 2017s. From my research 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 you need trailer wiring you then would want the part # C56208 which is a confirmed fit. I attached an install video for more info as well.
