  1. WK2 -Suspension/Driveline/Brakes/Wheels/Tires
    We're new Jeep owners, we bought ours to tow farm equipment. We have a 2019 Grand Cherokee 4x4 Overland. We already have the towing package but have been told we need to have a brake controller installed. I am curious if anyone else has had one installed, or if there are recommended brands to...
  2. WK2- Grand Cherokee (2011-2021/22 WK)
    just got a 2017 Grand Cherokee and will be towing a boat. Boat & trailer weigh about 3500#. GC has the 3.6 V6, Quadra Trac II, and factory tow pkg. In my previous tow vehicles, I would use a "trailer towing button" to stay out of Overdrive; or use regular Drive instead of Overdrive when...
  3. WK2 -Tech Tips/DIY/How To
    Hi could some one advise me how the quadra lift should be used when towing 1756 kilo, 3871 lbs caravan please. In simple terms I have never towed with this vehicle before JGC Summit.
  4. WK2- Grand Cherokee (2011-2021/22 WK)
    WK2 2012: towed a trailer today for the first time. All hooked up fine, electronics connected, lights working without a problem. BUT when indicating and only when indicating there's a beep from the rear of the car. It sounds most like the boot open / close beep rather than the park distance...
  5. New Members - Welcome!
    Hi, we are Nancy and Walter and we just bought a 2020 Grand Cherokee 4 Wheel Dr. sport utility overland to pull our boat or be pulled by our motorhome, not at the same time of course. How do I know if I have a WK or a WL or what ever initials. I am also wondering when we are on the ramp...
  6. KJ / KK Liberty
    I know I should be on the Liberty thread but I'm hoping someone can help especially if you have towed a Liberty four down. I've recently purchased a very nice Liberty and equipped it with the Blue Ox towing system including the Patriot 3 breaking system. The owners manual clearly describes the...
  7. WL Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    I owned a 2013 Dodge Durango what had the official Dodge Durango towing package (220amp Alt, Over-sized Engine Cooling, etc...). The vehical finally died and I purchaed a new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L to replace it. However, after asking several times and being promised that the new car did...
  8. WK2 -Tech Tips/DIY/How To
    There has always been talk about the charging power you can get from the 7 pin tow connector on vehicles. The general consensus is that its not good for much of a charge. My Grand Cherokee has the factory tow package and 220a alternator. I run a 100ah lithium battery in my Travel trailer and...
  9. WL- Grand Cherokee (2021+ 3-row - 2022+ 2-row)
    Hello. Recently purchased the GCL 3.6L, 4x4 with max towing capacity of 7200. What I am terribly confused by is how to figure out what this capacity means. At first I thought that 7200 was the most I could tow that did not include the Jeep itself but just the cargo trailer. Today I took Jeep...
  10. WK2- Grand Cherokee (2011-2021/22 WK)
    We just changed from towing an Airstream Basecamp w/o a WDH to a longer and heavier Winnebago Mico Mini which requires a WDH. We are using a WDH with an auto anti-sway option. I read a previous thread that mentioned that combining a WDH with Quadralift requied special attention. Unfortunately...
  11. WK2- Grand Cherokee (2011-2021/22 WK)
    I've done some searching and reading but still a little confused on this one. I just bought a 2019 JGC Trailhawk (with the 5.7L HEMI), which includes the full tow package. I'm looking to tow a small travel trailer soon (around 5000lb). Do I need to also buy and install a brake controller? My...
  12. WK2 -Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Good afternoon folks from the great state of Virginia! My wife and I recently upgraded from my 04 TJ to a 2020 WK2! We love it. I recently bought a 17 foot Coleman camper. Weighs in at 3,200 pounds dry. The dealer had advised me no problem for the WK2, but the more I learn about my...
  13. WK2- Grand Cherokee (2011-2021/22 WK)
    I am looking at a 2021 GC and want the factory installed tow package because it sounds as though that enhances cooling, electrical and some other systems. The dealer is telling me that all of the GC's come with everything except the hitch. That sounds a little odd to me and am hoping for...
  14. WK2- Grand Cherokee (2011-2021/22 WK)
    All I picked up my new 2021 WK2 Trailhawk today and have a question regarding tow capacity... During final paperwork, the dealership had me initial/sign/date a form acknowledging they had told me the total tow capacity of my rig is 6200lbs. I thought this was odd, because it’s a 5.7L V8 and...
  15. WK2- Grand Cherokee (2011-2021/22 WK)
    Hello everyone - I have been thinking about taking my 2016 WK2 V6 on a cross country national park tour next spring and summer. With a lot of miles ahead of me (if I do this). What are some must have mods to make the ride more enjoyable, capable, and assist the Jeep on the long road. I am...
  16. WK2- Grand Cherokee (2011-2021/22 WK)
    Hi everyone, I’m on the market to buy a camper trailer. Please help me confirm the tow capacity of my Grand Cherokee 2019 v6 - LIMITED I see 2 kinds of information online and dealership was not able to confirm either. Is it 3,500lbs or 6,200lbs? l see both of these numbers online. The GWVR on...
  17. WK2 -Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    Newbie here, I didn't see this question asked elsewhere. I have a 2012 Grand Cherokee with the factory tow package, both 4-pin and 7-pin wiring harnesses included. I've never used the 7-pin harness until the last few weeks for a boat trailer. In this, we've found that one of the pins...
  18. JL Wrangler (model years 2018 - Present)
    Hi All, I'm considering buying a 2-door 2019/20 Wrangler JL in the coming months to take advantage of 'market conditions' and swapping out by current BMW. My previous car was a very decent WK2 which I ran for 6 years. Being in the UK, getting a decent test drive of both 2-dr Petrol & Diesel is...
  19. WK2 -Suspension/Driveline/Brakes/Wheels/Tires
    Time to buy some new shoes, and I'm considering the Nankang Cross Sport 9. It has a slightly higher tread wear rating than the OEM Forterras, (560 vs 540). More importantly, it has a higher load rating XL vs SL, which means we would not be stressing the tires as much when we tow our camping...
