My tow vehicle pulls hard to the right while

My 2007 Diesel powered Jeep Grand Cherokee pulls hard to the right while towing our TT. The TT is within the limits of the tow rating. It does not pull hard when its not towing but has a slight pull to the right, even though I just had it alligned. I also checked the tires. I have check my WDH and load but still get the problem. My poor tires are going to be gone in no time. What else could be causing this? Any help would be greatly appreaciated. Thanks.

I don't know what type or brand travel trailer you have but I would have the axle/axles checked to see if they may have shifted on the leaf springs causing the trailer to push to one side or another. Basically have the axle alignment checked on the trailer. Also check the spring shackles and bushings for damage and rot. And check the trailer brakes if equipped for dragging on one side more than the other.

Testimonial: "That was something that I have not checked or even thought about. I measured the axles to make sure they are square, and they were. The tire wear is normal. But thanks for a great idea I would have not thought about. "

Left turn signal and brake light not working on tow vehicle


bad wiring in tow vehicle, (connections) or at towing car side.
many cars, have towing options, factory and have relays and fuses just for the hitch connector.
so anything here can be bad, use a voltmeter AND FIND TRUE.

HOW TO TOW MY 4X4 JEEP WITH MY PICK-UP TRUCK? WHAT TO DO WITH GEARS?


Hello! Please tow with the front of Jeep at the Pick-up bumper (reverse) Your odometer will not turn (no miles registered for the tow) also, the brake lights should be wired together so you have brake lights on the towed vehicle.Or buy the kit. Put the Jeep in neutral. Chain the front suspension of Jeep so you only have 15-20 degrees movement. Chain the cars together with two different sets of chains- one to the tow hook and one frame to frame. Put a sign and red rag on rear of Jeep.This is a safe tow.

I need to tow a broken down 1996 Grand Cherokee. I don't believe it has tow hooks. What is the best way to flat tow it about 5 miles?


THE BEST WAY is to locate 2 or more points that seem sturdy. nothing plastic. your best bet is hooking the cables up to something underneath the car that is attached to the frame if not the frame itself. Remember that you want to do it right in the middle of the car or 2 points on seperate ends to have an even nice pull

Is a 1996 jeep cherokee a towable vehicle? {auto trans.}


does your transfer case have a neutral? if so shift to neutral and it can be towed.if its alltime 4x4 or auto then not above 35 mph for more than 50 miles. if this is to be a tow vehicle i strongly suggest a car trailer. the maintinance is less its easier to pull and hook up and there is no wear and tear on your vehicle.
