Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Dinghy Towing (Blue Ox)
We recently replace our 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Diesel, built in December 2013. We have had a Roadmaster BlackHawk tow bar installed (10,000 pound capability) and tow it behind our 2004 Winnebago Journey Diesel pusher, as we did our 2000 model Jeep. Last weekend we travelled to Pittsburgh, a 800 mile round trip. We encountered no problems.
I do not know what transmission or transfer case you have there. Our Jeep has Quadra Trac II? The one you have to push the tiny button under the transfer case selector knob? We were worried that this new method of putting the Jeep's transfer case into Neutral would be problematic. It was not. Another issue which resolved itself was the use of a Brake Buddy Vantage; the pedal on the new Jeep has its "arm" connect from the upper right, rather than from top; the Brake Buddy "foot" stayed on just fine. I can tell you that I can feel the extra weight, although fuel usage was not materially different with the extra weight.
We hope you enjoy your new Jeep, as I know we will enjoy ours.
