Re: OEM hitch mount pics?

I called another dealer close to me and they quoted 230 for labor since they would have to cut the bumper.

i have the hemi so the prewire was just there.

Picked up the hitch at
oepartsmegastore.com
Shipping for the hitch was estimated to be around 50-80 which negates the savings. Cheaper to just get it from the dealer at MSRP.

Re: OEM hitch mount pics?

I just got another quote for a dealer slightly further away but its 285 + tax for the hitch and 169 + tax for the wiring harness. So thats the best quote so far

Re: OEM hitch mount pics?

Just looked at the back bumper. Looks like the wiring harness is already there. The only piece missing is the combo 7 - way and 4 - way trailer tow outlet.

And this is on my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo X with a sunroof added

The hitch is considered oversized and over weight so its not included in the free shipping.

I got the 4 way from the dealer for $43. Popped right into the hole on the hitch. Also was prewired.

Re: OEM hitch mount pics?

For those of you with the prewired (trailer) without the tow option, did you test it to see if it worked? Mine was prewired and I added an aftermarket hitch but the Stop/turn doesn't work. Heard the dealer may need to activate it????

Re: OEM hitch mount pics?

So its going to be 285 + Tax = 306.38 for the hitch install. I am amazed as to the price discrepancy between dealers are. The dealer I bought my JGC from wants 210 for the labor to install the hitch + another 233 for the part.

Re: OEM hitch mount pics?

Benzie, yes. If the harness is dead, only the dealer can activate the module.
