trailer package standard or not on Summit

The sticky says it is standard on the 2014 Overland and Summit, but my dealer said he didn't think so. Can anyone verify this one way or the other?

Thanks,
SF

Yes it is standard on the Overland and Summit. On the Summit, it is behind a little panel that you have to remove to see.

Thank you, SnoFire. That clears up a lot. The pics don't show the receiver and now I know why.

Thought it was only standard on 4x4 models.

That is correct. It is an option on the 4x2 models.

Re: trailer package standard or not on Summit

Weird, on the the Jeep site when you build your own, when you add the Hemi to the 4x2 model it removes "ECO" mode. Hmmmm.....

For some reason ECO mode is an option on 4x2 models?

Re: trailer package standard or not on Summit

Does any of you guys with a summit have any idea how do I remove the cover panel to access the hitch in the back of the car? I've found 2 "switches" bellow it, but I can't get the cover panel out! :-(

Not sure, I just got mine and haven't messed around with it yet. I look forward to finding out myself. Although it has to be in the owners manual. I would look there for guidance.

I haven't tried it yet but someone on here mentioned that you loosen the 2 lower fasteners and then you have to give the panel a pretty good tug to get it free.

I believe so, looks like that's what needs to be done, couldn't find information on the manual, but there is the two fasteners in the lower bumper, and probably you need to pull down hard and it should come out!

Re: trailer package standard or not on Summit

Has anyone actually taken the Summit hitch cover off yet to see EXACTLY how it comes off? It is nowhere in the manual!!
