Jeep Cherokee


1997 Jeep Cherokee. Were going to install part number BX1110. Start off the front bumper needs to be removed for access to the frame. We got to remove some coverings first. Well go ahead and remove the screws in the plastic center grille and the plastic moldings around the headlights.

Well go ahead and set those aside.

Today on our 1999 Jeep Cherokee, we#39;ll be installing the Curt Hitch, part number 13084. This is what our hitch will look like once it#39;s installed. Next, we#39;ll go ahead and give you a couple of measurements to assist you in selecting accessories for your new hitch such as a ball mount, a bike rack, or a cargo carrier.

From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper is 4-1/2 inches. From the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 15-3/4 inches. Now, let#39;s go ahead with the installation.

Today we are going to install part number 13084 from Curt, and we are going to install this on a 2000 Jeep Cherokee. First we will show you where the hitch installs on the vehicle. First off, it installs on four bolt holes: right here, here, here and on the very end of the frame.

And there are three different configurations of this vehicle, depending on when and where it was made. On some vehicles, it is kind of rare, but they will actually have a plate inside of here with weld nuts inside there, so it would be easy just to screw bolts into it and be done. It is either going to be like this, where it is no bolt holes or no weld nuts in there or with weld nuts on the drivers side. And on the passengers side, it is going to go onto the same locations.

And a lot of times, it will have that plate with all the weld nuts in it. It is more common to have it on this side than on the other side. Either way, this installation is the same you have still got these bolt holes. What you want to do is clean out these bolt holes, too, just to make sure you get rid of all the dirt and grime that get worked up in there. And also you will find this drivers side without any hardware on the inside, either.

And then the last thing is that, usually, this bolt right here is notorious for being a real pain to get back out. It will make all kinds of creaking noises as you back it out. It is just the way it is made, I guess, because of the lock type that is in there, but it is a real pain to get out.

But it will not break just take your time and keep working it out.

Jeeps are the original outdoor enthusiasts vehicle of choice. Now we have many SUVs but those Jeeps are still just fun to drive! A receiver hitch on your Jeep will allow you to tow a trailer, think boats or jet skis, use a cargo carrier for extra cargo room or use a hitch mounted bike rack.

However you like to spend your down time a hitch will help make it more enjoyable. This video shows us installing a custom fit receiver on a Cherokee. The hitch was designed to make the process as easy as possible so no drilling is required. Take a minute to watch it, we are sure afterwards you will be calling to place your order

Jeep Cherokee Questions and Answers

My Surco contact confirmed that the Surco Safari Rack # SPS4550-1101 that you referenced will fit your 2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport with the factory roof rails. Before you load any cargo, please check your owners manual to verify your roof weight capacity and be sure to add the weight of the cargo basket in your total. To tie down your cargo you may be interested in the MasterLock Bungee Assortment # 3044DAT. This set comes with 15 bungee cords in a variety of sizes and has a storage holder a

I spoke with my contact at Curt and I have that measurement for you. From the face of the receiver to the center of the hitch pin hole it is 2-1/2 inches which is a common distance for hitches. I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation of Curt trailer hitch # 13084 on a 2000 Jeep Cherokee.

If you are planning on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. For trailer wiri

To get a replacement hardware kit for Curt hitch # 13084 for your 1997 Jeep Cherokee you will need # RHK. The RHK product page you will need to enter the hitch number, 13084 where indicated and then select the manufacturer from the drop[ down menu.

This carrier can hold 2 bikes, has a tilting feature, which will allow you access to the rear hatch of your Cherokee, and has a weight capacity of 70 lbs. I have linked you to a product review video for this carrier.

If the ladies bike does not have a horizontal top frame tube I would recommend the Thule Bike Adapter Bar, part # TH982XT.

When choosing weight distribution you will need to go by the total tongue weight. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. So if the dry weight of the trailer is 2,730 pounds and when loaded it weighs 3,000 pounds that would put the tongue weight of the trailer at 300 to 450 pounds. If you do not have anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicl

The frame mount part only of base plates # 1418-1 is not available. The issue is that the base plate removable arms and the frame mount parts are made together and each set individually. What this means is that the arms from one kit may not properly fit into the frame brackets of another kit of the same part number.

This makes is uncertain if replacement parts will be compatible so they do not offer the parts individually. You have a tow bar, quick disconnects, and now you know what you need

The first thing you will want to do is consult the owners manual for your 2001 Jeep Cherokee to make sure that it can be flat towed and if there are any special requirements or procedure. To flat tow a vehicle there are 5 items you will need: base plates, tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. For base plates, if you like the Blue Ox products, use # BX1110.

I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation of these base plates for you. Next you will need

A front mount trailer hitch like # 31084 can be used for a winch or for pushing around a trailer to get it in the right position but you can not use it to tow your 1991 Jeep Cherokee. You would not be able to turn properly with a single attachment point at the center of a 4 wheeled vehicle. To flat tow a vehicle you will need a special attachment called base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. Base plates and a front mount hitch cannot both be installed at th

The Yakima RocketBox Pro 11 Cargo Box, # Y07193, will fit on your 1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport if you have a Yakima roof rack. According to Yakima, the RocketBox cargo boxes will not fit on the factory roof rack of the Jeep Cherokee. There are a few different Yakima roof racks that will fit on your Jeep, but choosing the correct rack will depend on what you currently have on your roof.

If you have the factory roof tracks that run front to back, you can use the Yakima Control Tower Roof Rack. This

Although we do not offer a ski rack solution that will install directly to the side rails of your Cherokee, you can still carry skis or snowboards if crossbars are added using the following parts: Yakima 48 inch crossbars, part # Y00408 (includes 2) Yakima Control Towers, part # Y00214 (includes 2) You will also need two of the Yakima Landing Pad Kits, part # Y00222.

I note that you have also purchased an appropriate T-connector harness, part # C55330, to adapt these LED trailer lights to your Jeep Cherokee (which has a 3-wire lighting system) along with the appropriate load resistors. Based on your description of the problem, I suspect a bad ground connection. Check that the white ground wire with ring terminal from your pigtail lead is tightly secured to a clean (and preferably bare) metal surface. You might try sanding off any paint if the ground

For the MaxxTow Wheelchair Carriers # MT70260 and # MT70106, the length of the shank from the center of the pinhole to the closest edge of the carrier when in the folded position is 4-3/4 inches. Just to be sure, I contacted my source at MaxxTow and he confirmed this measurement.

My Contact at Curt Manufacturing tells me that the # C55330 should be the correct trailer harness for your Comanche given that it is based on the Cherokee, but did not have enough specific information to be 100 percent certain. Your best bet would be to locate the connector that your existing harness plugs into, and compare it to the T portion of the # C55330 shown in the photo I have provided. If the connectors look alike, the C55330 should work fine for you. If not, using a universal conver

The Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier, # TH910XT, will fit on your Jeep Cherokee as long as it is newer than 1991. To install this bike rack you will place the top clips in the gap at the top of the rear hatch and the bottom clips on the bottom edge of the rear door. The lower arm of the carrier will rest above the license plate well.

Please note that the rear wiper cannot be used when the carrier is mounted. If you plan on carrying any womens, childrens or alternative bike frames, then I also rec

For a roof mount basket, you will need to have crossbars that run from side to side on the roof. To determine if the Curt roof basket, # C18115, will fit your 1997 Jeep Cherokee you will need to measure the bars width and the center to center distance between them. The Curt basket fits on crossbars that are no wider than 3 inches and a bar spread of at least 15 inches.

I have included a link to the basket instructions for you. If you need to add crossbars I have included a link to the roof

The Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit, # 1418-1, will work on your 1996 Jeep Cherokee and it is compatible with your Falcon 2 tow bar. The only additional item that you may need to use the base plates with your Falcon 2 tow bar is the Roadmaster Quick Disconnect Tow Bar Base Assembly, # 910021-00, if you do not already have one with your tow bar. When installing these base plates, you will need to remove the tow hooks and the front bumper. Once installation is complete, you will replace the front

The bolts that secure the Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch # 87601 that you referenced are M12 x 1.75 x 45 mm CL10.9. You should note that if your vehicle is equipped with reinforcement bars you will reuse the existing M12 fasteners. Check out the installation instructions for this product that I attached also.

Yes, the Roadmaster Classic Base Plate Kit # 1411-1 that you referenced is confirmed to fit your 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee. To safely flat tow a vehicle there are several components needed. The first is the base plate kit which we have already picked out. Next, you will need a set of tow bars.

For that I recommend you get a RoadMaster Sterling All Terrain Tow Bar # RM-585. This tow bar comes with quick-disconnects, safety cables and wiring run for lighting. I attached installation instructions

First, if you have the factory installed crossbars that run side to side on the roof, then the Thule MOAB, # TH690, is a direct fit. You could tie down a canoe or kayak directly to the basket without additional parts. This basket has a capacity of 165 pounds.

However, if the roof rack or roof is rated lower then you will have to go by the lower rating. To determine if the Rola basket, # 59504, will fit, there are some measurement you will need to take. First, measure the thickness of the bars

Since one of your kayaks is over 10 feet long you will need to get the Thule Hull-A-Port Pro Folding J-Style Rooftop Kayak Carrier # TH835PRO. If you have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee the factory cross bars will be adequate for you to attach the # TH835PRO to, if you have a 2000 Jeep Cherokee then you will first need an aftermarket roof rack additionally. Check out the link I attached that shows all the different racks that would work for you.

To add a 7-Way and wiring for a brake controller you will need the 4 and 7 way installation kit, # ETBC7. This kit provides you with the 7-Way and all the parts needed to wire your 1991 Jeep Cherokee. For a brake controller, I recommend the Tekonsha P2, # 90885.

I have included some installation instructions and a video that should help you with the installation of the ETBC7 and brake controller. Basically, you will plug in the 4-Way you have into the back of the ETBC7. The white wire wil

The hose that is included with the Derale Stacked-Plate Engine Oil Cooler Kit, # D15602, is 10 ft long and has a 1/2 inch inner diameter. We sell 1/2 inch inner diameter hoses individually as well if you need additional length. I have included a link to all of the hoses we sell for you.

For the Curt front mount trailer hitch, you will need to drill two 17/32 inch holes in the bottom of the frame rails. There should not be anything inside the frame rail so you should not worry about punching through with the drill. Take a look at the instructions link I have provided for you. The Draw-Tite hitch # 65009 requires a 1/2 inch hole.

I have included a link to the instructions for it as well.
