Update on adding tow package/trail hawk tires to Latitude

I had issues getting my tow hitch installed due to the back order on wiring harnesses from Mopar. I had ordered the package after I purchased the car but the dealer still couldn't install after 6+ months.

My solution was just to order the Mopar wiring harness from a third party distributor carrying Mopar parts (justforjeeps). I ordered the harness last week and had it in 48 hours later. Dropped wiring harness off at dealer an they installed everything in a day. Much better than the indefinite wait for the back order.

I also was not pleased with the tires that came on the Latitude model. The dealer checked to see if I could fit the trail hawk trim tires on the latitude (Firestone destination A/T); they will fit. Tires were installed and perform great.

Hope this helps others who are in a similar situation.

So did you use the stock 7" wheel with the change? or did you install the 7.5" wheel that comes on the trail hawk? I have been looking at doing the same just not sure which route I want to go. Also did you have to get the speed odometer reprogrammed? I do know that at 65 there will be approximately a 3mph difference.

I am pretty happy with the change to the TH A/T tires; I probably could have researched an even more aggressive tire, but the dealership had those on hand and measured to see if they would actually fit.

My family also just got a 2015 Cherokee Lat and is researching alternative aggressive tires that might fit.
