RE: disappointing info for Jeep Trailhawk flat tow

Thanks to those that provided questions or offered positive responses. As to the point of this post coming 6 years after purchase of Jeep...We bought it brand new with intention of towing it years down the road. It wasn't until last year I began getting ready to tow. Slowly acquired parts and was finally ready to go. After getting the information that it cannot be towed it brought up two thoughts. 1) How many people out there have the same set up but didn't do the research and started towing? 2) I was hoping on the chance someone on the forums knew more details that would help me. Our Trailhawk is listed as a Cherokee. It is built on the Compass platform. Although it does have the transfer case neutral switch it is front wheel drive. That it why Jeep said there will be drivetrain damage if flat towed. Looks like we'll have to make a new plan. I have a Jeep YJ that is heavily modified for off-road use. We do on occasion trailer it to use as a driver. Not the most fun because it's not easy to climb in and out of or drive on the highway:) The Trailhawk doesn't fit on my current trailer and I want to elimnate the need for a trailer. We use to flat tow before the Wrangler before it was modified and that was SO easy.

disappointing info for Jeep Trailhawk flat tow

We purchased a new Jeep Trailhawk in 2014. We found this Jeep had the transfer case neutral button which would allow flat towing behind our motorhome. The salesman and the owners manual confirmed that this Jeep could flat tow. A couple of years ago I purchased the base plates and related tow equipment to install myself. I later found out I would need to take it to the dealer to have a flat tow wiring harness installed. After dropping it off the dealer called and said this vehicle can not be flat towed. It has to be all four off the ground to two.:h I called the Jeep customer service 800 number to check for sure and they said based on my VIN the Trailhawk doesn't have the right power train. So frustrated to find this out. I see so many Trailhawks being towed.
