Adding a 4- and 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 2017 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk


2017 Jeep cherokee trailhawk, item HM40975 Hi, Im looking to get my jeep wired for towing. I installed the oem hitch receiver and want to get the item below but am not sure what wire harness to buy. Do any of the ones you sell plug into the back of it? Thanks 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket w/ Mounting Bracket - Vehicle End Item # HM40975


Expert Reply:

In order to install a 4- and 7-Way trailer connector on your 2017 Jeep Cherokee you will first need to install a 4-Way using # 118605. I have included a link that shows an example installation of this wiring harness for you.

Once that is installed you can then install # ETBC7 which will add the 7-Way, retain the 4-Way, and provide the wiring to install a brake controller if you need one. For a brake controller I recommend the P2 # 90885 because it is easy to set up and use and it is reliable. I have included some links that show and explain the ETBC7 installation for you. There isn't a plug-in 4- and 7-Way for Cherokees unless they already came with a 7-Way connector from the factory.
