I will be using my 2014 Grand Cherokee as a dinghy behind my motorhome.
I plan to use a Blue Ox Tow bar
. Currently, as I start this thread, it is not known, by the manufacturer, if the original WK2 baseplate(BX1128)
will work on a 2014 GC.
The current base plate
works on all Wk2('11,'12,'13) GC's including the SRT.
My guess is, it will work. If not, I may have to drive to the Blue Ox Factory to have them design a new one, if no one else has done this.
I know in previous WK2's the only GC's that can be towed, un-modified, are the ones with QUADRA-TRAC II® and QUADRA-DRIVE® II 4WD Systems. (They need a 4WD transfer case with a neutral position.) For further information see MotorHome Magazine's 2012 Guide
. With the new transmission and shifting lever in the 2014 the towing procedure may vary slightly.
If my new GC diesel arrives shortly before my summer trip begins, I will have very little time to get the base plate and Air Force One Braking Control
installed. I need to have my ducks i a row when the new vehicle arrives.
If anyone has any information regarding any of this please post it.
