Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness for a 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk


I have a 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. What hitch do I need? It appears there is a difference between the Trailhawk and the other models. I need a hitch part number and a wiring harness for the Trailhawk.Thanks


Expert Reply:

There are trailer hitches we currently offer for your 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. The two are Curt Class-III part # C13172 and # C13171.

The one I recommend is part # C13171 because you don't have to trim your fascia. It is custom fit for your 2015 Jeep Trailhawk and has a gross trailer weight of 5,000 pounds and maximum tongue weight of 750 pounds. Please revert to your Owners Manual for the maximum towing and tongue weight capacity and you will always go with the lowest rated component.

The wiring harness you will need is # C56208 and the T-connector will plug directly into your existing wiring. I highly recommend using dielectric grease such as # 11755 to help prevent corrosion from water exposure.

If you plan on doing any towing, and don't have a ball mount already, I would go with # 989900. It will include everything you need to tow a trailer.

I have included a couple FAQ's and videos for you too.
