Tom, first of all, welcome to the forums!
Do you have a brake controller? Can you see around the trailer effectively? Does your towing package include a transmission cooler? Do you know if you have a charge line from the tow vehicle to the trailer? This uses the tow vehicle's alternator to help charge the trailer's battery while you are towing. Also, is you Cherokee 2WD or 4WD? A very quick recomendation I can sefely make, is if you have organic gear lube in the differential, to get it changed and replaced with synthetic gear lube. This can better handle the heat generated by towing a heavy load at high speeds. Many are the Chrysler truck owners that found out about this inexpensive upgrade too late.
