Is Mopar Flat Tow Wiring Harness Required For 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk  


Can you tell me for sure if this model Jeep needs the Mopar flat tow wiring harness to reduce chance of experiencing the Death Wobble that some Jeeps have. I was under the impression that only 2018 and older Cherokee Trailhawks had to have this additional harness installed.


Expert Reply:

I was able to find the owner's manual for your 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk and it does not mention requiring the Mopar Flat Tow Wiring Harness 68321424AB. I looked at the 2018 owner's manual and it does mention it there so you are correct that the 2018 and older Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk's will require the mentioned harness but your 2019 will not.

I would highly recommend you check your owner's manual and read the Recreational Towing Section to make sure you follow the exact procedures Jeep requires to make your vehicle flat tow ready. You will only be able to flat tow your Jeep if it is equipped with the 2-speed transfer case that has neutral.

If you are still needing flat tow items for your Jeep I recommend the following

Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1143
Blue Ox Avail Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount # BX7420
Roadmaster 4-Diode Universal Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles # RM-152-98146-7
Blue Ox Patriot Braking System - Proportional # BLU37TR

I included videos of all the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
