Boeckers said:Quick question on putting on a trailer hitch. I went to U-Haul to purchase the hicth which was very easy to put on, but now I'm a touch confused on how to set up the electrical and how to get electricity to my plugs (do I need relays for the trailer brakes and a constant power/charge wire, info from U-haul) (or do I need a Wiring Harness Kit from CourtesyParts.com).
I got my Armada with the tow package -- so not clear on this ...but just before I got my ARmada...I had just finished doing the same thing to my Jeep Grand Cherokee -- and I would recommend the OEM hitch...not a cheap Uhaul hitch. It would have been night and day -- and I stress tested that OEM hitch with a 6500lb boat on an 18hr round trip to Nag's Head...and it held up just fine...but the Jeep was dying a slow death -- hence the Armada. I guess it depends on what you're planning on towing...
Regarding the electronics...that's another reason to get the OEM equipment...it will come with good instructions...but if I get a second tonight...I'll look in the service manual to see what I can find.
