2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk & Blue Ox
Jeep is being repaired with new aluminum rails that the Blue Ox base plate blots to. I make it 30K miles. Took it to my shop for a rattle. They discovered the radiator support bracket was cracked and about to let the radiator fall down, Upon further checking discovered cracks in the weld at the end plate on the aluminum rails. Just lucky I paid attention to my wife about the rattle. Unfortunately it is not easy to check these welds without removing the lower front grill work. Base plates were installed in 5/2015.
Blue Ox has agreed to ship the upgraded base plates,. Not sure that is the final answer.
Bad design by Jeep & Blue Ox.
After I a bad wobble issue I had Jeep install the wiring harness. No wobble since that.
If you tow a Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk get it checked as well as get the wiring harness installed. Jeep installed mine under warrantee.
