can a 2000 jeep Cherokee be flat towed?
A flat-towing Jeep Cherokee will require you to have a base plate kit, tow bar, lighting or wiring, safety cables, and a supplemental brake system in order to accomplish the task.
There are a number of options available on the 1999 Jeep Cherokee for base plate kits that can vary in price, but all of them will work perfectly with your vehicle.
As far as Jeep Cherokee is concerned, you can tow it on a trailer as long as it is on a trailer with all four wheels attached. In case your Jeep Cherokee has Active Drive II, or if it has a 2-speed PTU, then you can flat-tow it behind a motorhome.
It is possible to flat tow the Jeep Cherokee using the right equipment and the right power of your vehicle. The process involves a few steps, including starting your vehicle and ensuring that functions like the auto park brake have been disabled. Once this has been done, you enable the parking brake for a short time while putting the vehicle in neutral.
Irrespective of whether it’s a Jeep Wrangler or a Jeep Gladiator, it can be flat towed without an issue regardless of whether it’s a model or transmission option.
The Jeep that you have is equipped with an automatic transmission, so you will need to push and hold the brake pedal and shift the transmission into neutral.
The Gladiator is another example of a Jeep that can be flat-towed, as are all 4-wheel-drive Jeep Patriot and Jeep Liberty models, certain Cherokee models (only those with Active Drive II and 2-speed PTU) and some 4-low Grand Cherokee models.
