About Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailer Hitches

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is an awesome vehicle to drive. It performs well on paved roads as well as off the beaten track. Its off roader credentials are impressive, having the capacity to travel great distances in the open country. The Grand Cherokee is a mid-size SUV and is therefore spacious enough to accommodate a small family and some luggage. It’s strong enough to tow a pull a trailer, enabling you to ship all your heavy stuff. And with a hitch from CARiD, you can rest assured your trailer will reach your destination firmly attached to your car. CARiD stocks top grade Jeep Grand Cherokee trailer hitches from the most reliable manufacturers. They stock from reputable brands such as CURT, REESE, ONKI, and TOW READY among others. Before you purchase a trailer, ensure you know your car’s towing capacity. It is always advisable to tow within your vehicle’s weight class to avoid damage to your car.

Jeep Grand Cherokee trailer hitches are designed to bolt right into your car. In most instances, drilling will not be required. They are designed precisely to fit a specific make or model of a certain car. They include weight-carrying hitches and weight-distribution hitches for small and medium trailers. On the other hand, gooseneck and 5th wheel hitches are made for pickup trucks and the large trailers. Your choice will depend on your car’s towing capacity and type of trailer you will be pulling. Weight-distribution hitches are preferred because they are equipped with spring bars, which transfer some weight to the front axle. A weight-carrying hitch will require an equalizing hitch to distribute the load weight equitably. Installation is a simple procedure that you can do at home. It will take you less than half an hour to accomplish successfully. However, if you are not up to the task, have it installed at the local repair shop.

When 50% of the new vehicle purchases in the USA today are some kind of pickup truck, SUV, or minivan, the addition of a hitch at the rear of the vehicle makes perfect sense. Depending on the vehicle, a properly installed and rated rear hitch can pull up to 18,000...
There are four major types of trailer hitches, regardless of whether they are installed at the factory or added on afterward. A hitch may simply have a bar sticking out past the bumper with a ball mounted to it. Or there may be a square receiver that takes a ball mount that slides into it. In all cases, there are different weight ratings.
When you’re setting up your trailer with a new tow vehicle, several things need to be considered: the ball mount and ball must be rated to take the weight, and the ball has to be at the right height. Once you have determined the proper weight class, choose a ball mount of a high enough class for your trailer, and set up your ball mount and ball for proper towing....
