I'm gearing up for starting my junk hauling business and have been reading this forum exhaustively. It's been a huge help with finding certain parts but I think I may have too much knowledge now.

Regarding the brake controller...early posts about the 3014-P harness said that they needed to swap the black and blue wires. That was back in 2014 but I never saw any posts about not needing to do that anymore.

It looks like now in 2016 it's just straight plug and play with no black and blue swap. On amazon and etrailer it makes it seem like just plug and play and the packing even says 2014 to current jeep cherokee with OEM 7 way tow package.

Just wanted to get some feedback if they made it now so that there is no need to swap the black and blue.

3021 for the Ram trucks was the original one in this thread that had 2 wires reversed. The 3014 is the correct one for the Cherokee and is plug and play.

Pretty sure either in this thread or another it was posted that they started to make the correct harness.

2016 Cherokee 3014-p harness install. Anybody do this? I think the plastic cover under the dash has changed? Does not look like the 2014-15.

I installed the whole thing today, also 2016.
The plastic cover is the same as the first pictures. I was able to half open it and plug in the adapter. The whole process took 15 minutes but it wasn't easy to access at all. Tomorrow I'm testing with the trailer.
