Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2020 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk with Freightliner


Im trying to assemble a flat tow package for my 2020 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. I will be towing with a class A diesel pusher on a freightliner chassis with the brake sync system. So far in my cart I have BX1143, DM97ZR, SM99243, BX7420 and BX8870. What am I missing? Thanks

You are the right track to flat towing your 2020 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. The Blue Ox base plate kit part # BX1143 is a confirmed fit for it and the Avail tow bar part # BX7420 is one of the easiest to use options out there so it would work really well.

Since you have a Freightliner the SBS Air Force One part # SM99243 with the # DM97ZR would work great with the air brakes. The part # BX8870 would do a great job protecting the vehicle when towing too.

For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your tow vehicle to control the taillight assemblies of the towed vehicle. This comes with a round 6-way connector that you will install on the front of your towed vehicle and enough coiled wire to go from there to the RV.
