Uhaul vs. Dealer for Hitch Install

35194 Views 8 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  xJoshxx
I am looking to attach a trailer hitch to my 2014 Grand Cherokee Limited RWD. I was told that it is already prewired for a trailer hitch.

I contacted both Uhaul and my local dealership. Uhaul quoted me $270 for hitch, wiring, and install. The dealership quoted me $241 for just the hitch and than another $271 for installation.

My two concerns are:

1) Appearance - With the Uhaul hitch, will it look like a uhaul job (blatently an aftermarket accessaory) or will it look as though it comes from the dealership.

2) Resale Value - Is one option better than another in terms of resale value or even warranty?

Any insight or if anyone has any photos of Uhaul trailer hitches on their '14 Grand Cherokee I would greatly appreciate it!

Thank you for all of your input!

I have decided to go with the dealer install. Its a safer bet all the way around. The final price they ended up quoting me was $441.64 for the hitch and install. They also said there was the ability to get the electronic brake wiring kit for $108 but I am not planning on hauling too many things after my move so I am passing on it for the time being.

Ill be sure to post photos once the install is complete but that probably wont be for another week or two.
