The price of the products can be found on the product pages; there will be a number of things you'll need to get to flat tow your 2018 Jeep Cherokee starting with compatible base plates. I recommend the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit # RM-521446-5. For a tow bar I recommend going with the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar # RM-520 because of how easy the tow bar is to connect to the base plates and the long arms that make it easier to maneuver when towing; you will also need safety chains # RM-643.

For wiring kit that will allow your Jeep's lights to function while being towed you can use the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit # RM-154. Please not that Jeep issued a tech bulletin to install wiring kit 68321424AB when flat towing your vehicle, which is available at your local Chrysler and Jeep dealership. Your 2018 Cherokee is also going to need Battery Charge Line Kit # RM-156-25 as well as # RM-156-75 if your RV does not have a charge line.

A supplemental braking system is a requirement in most states and I highly recommend the SMI Stay-IN-Play # SM99251 for this. This is a proportional braking system which is a one-time install which you can leave in so you'll never have to activate or deactivate it. Please note ome models of Cherokee may use Mortorq® fasteners. If your vehicle has these types of fasteners, you will need a PFMTS2E bit to remove them which can be ordered through a Snap-On dealer.

Finally, it is likely you will need a high-low adapter such as # RM-076 to keep your Cherokee level with your tow vehicle. The adapter you need is going to depend on some measurements you'll need to take. I have added a link to a help article on high-low adapters which explains the measurements you'll need, as well as a link to our page with our selection of adapters. I've also attached links to video reviews and installs of the other aforementioned parts for you to take a look at.
