Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport


Im looking for a total package option. I have a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport. I see a lot of options and they all appear to be piece mail, with quite a few parts that seem to be duplicated. Is there just one kit I can buy? I am towing the Jeep behind our motorhome and want a tow bar kit for it. I need the base plates for the jeep, tow bar setup that includes surge brakes and the wiring kit to make it all work. I want to buy the whole thing at one time.

There isn't a kit that includes everything you'll need to flat tow your 2015 Jeep Wrangler. That's because different vehicles require different parts that are vehicle specific. But I can help you find the parts you need.

You'll need a tow bar, safety cables, base plate kit, wiring, a supplemental braking system, and possibly a high-low adapter.

The tow bar I recommend is the Demco Commander # DM9511012. I like the Demco tow bars because of the independent arms and they include a rise or dop. It also includes safety cables. Instead of a surge brake system I recommend the Stay-IN-Play DUO # SM99251. It's one of the easiest systems to use each time once its installed.

For a base plate kit that will pair with the Commander use # DM9519292. The two Demco parts work well together and not need any adapters. The kit is custom designed for the Wrangler.

The diode kit # RM-15267 will power the Jeep's lights. This kit installs a 6-way connector at the front of the Jeep and includes a cable to connect the Jeep to the RV. You'll need a Brake-Lite Relay # RM-88400 to keep the Jeep's lights from overriding the RV's.

Finally, you'll likely need a high-low adapter. I've attached an article to help you determine the correct rise or drop your setup requires. I've also linked our selection of adapters for you to look at once you know what you need.

In addition to my recommendations I've linked some articles on flat towing that you may find helpful.
