Parts Needed to Flat-Tow a 2020 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk


Can you please tell me what components I need to flat to my 2020 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk?


Expert Reply:

In order to flat-tow a 2020 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk you are going to need a base plate kit, tow bar, safety chains, flat-tow wiring, a supplemental braking system, and a possible high-low adapter. I have attached my recommendation on the following parts for you below.

Base Plate Kit: Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit part # RM-521451-4
- This kit has removable arms for a clean look while unhooked from the RV. As long as you do not have the active air shutter system it will work for you.

Tow Bar: Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar part # RM-520 & RoadMaster Release Tool part # RM-066

Safety Cables: Roadmaster Safety Cables part # RM-643

Flat-Tow Wiring: Roadmaster Wiring Kit part # RM-15267

Supplemental Braking System: Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System part # RM-8700
- During installation, move the cable clamp/bracket as close to the pedal as possible and then drill a hole through the brake pedal arm.

In order to complete your flat-towing setup you are also going to need a charge line kit like part # RM-156-25 to keep the vehicle's battery charged while in tow and a stop light switch like part # RM-751471 to alert you when the brakes of your towed car are being applied. A high low adapter may be needed to keep your tow bar level within 3" +/- I have linked an article on that for you.
