Hmmm… I’m not optimistic now that you’ve clarified we’re talking about the Cherokee, not the Grand Cherokee. What are the tow ratings for this model?
For a complete answer we’ll need more information, including the curb weight
, the GCWR, and the weight
of passengers and cargo you'll be carrying in or on the tow vehicle.
Figure around 4000# GVW with 400-450# TW for the loaded trailer, based on the two Oliver
Elites in our “Trailer Weights in the Real World” database. That’s a fairly small sample size, and one was running less than 10% TW.
There are online towing weight
calculators that can help with the math, but it’s really pretty straightforward once you have all the data. Add the curb weight plus passengers and cargo plus 450# TW plus about 75# for the hitch (probably needs WDH), and see if you are still under the GVWR. Then add the axle
weight of the trailer (figure 3600#) and see if you are within the GCWR. Most people would want some margin.
BTW, welcome to the forum!
