Manual Trans 1.4L and Tow Hitch
I've got a 2017 Renegade Latitude, the manual transmission with the 1.4L engine. Jeep recommends NOT "towing" anything with this model. However, I'd like to have a tow hitch installed for one purpose: to mount my bicycle to the back of the vehicle. My bike barely weighs 30 pounds, if that (aluminum frame bike). I have the roof racks installed, but putting a bike up there, and taking it off for riding, is a big pain, not to mention issues with low bridge clearances; having it mounted to the back is much safer and more convenient.
Any recommendations for or against doing this?
