Well, the wife has never been enamored with the Jeep TJ. Won't go into all the details, but "happy wife - happy life"...
Long story short, after searching a couple weeks for the right Cherokee, I ran across a 2017 Cherokee Overland with Active Drive II. Wife had a very specific wish list; Cold Weather Pkg, Memory Driver's Seat, Pano Sunroof - and this one checks all the boxes. A local Acura dealer had taken it on trade at 31K miles. When we first walked up to it, I noticed a Demco tabless baseplate under the bumper. I don't think the salesguy even knew that it was there. A toggle switch with the red cover as shown in this photo was mounted in the console - so it likely has the tow harness installed:
Being new to this - how does this harness work? I realize that I need to flip the switch on before towing the car, but I've read something about pulling a fuse.
Also, is anyone here using the Demco tabless setup? My current setup is a Demco Excalibar with BlueOx tabs and a BlueOx baseplate on the TJ. The Demco tabless setup is different from the BlueOx in that the pull studs are permanently attached to the tow bar(and didn't come with the car). Looking at etrailer.com, it would be slightly north of $200 for all the parts that I'm missing. Etrailer sells a pair of tab adapters for ~$80 - the setup would no longer be "tabless", but I think I'd prefer it to the Demco tabless design.
Any feed back from IRV2ers that have used the Demco tabless setup would be appreciated.
