From our experience the part 68321424AB is required on a 2018 Jeep Cherokee. I recommend checking with a dealership for confirmation.

Unfortunately, that part must be sourced at a dealership as well. We do however, have everything else you may need to flat tow the Jeep.

The custom base plate kit you need is either part # RM-521447-5, if your Jeep is not a Trailhawk or part # RM-521446-5 if it is. These will connect directly to the Falcon 2 tow bar, part # RM-520. Then you can use part # RM-643 for safety cables.

To power the Jeep's lights I suggest the diode kit # RM-15267. This will use the vehicle's tail lights by connecting to the RV's and includes the cord to go between the two.

For a supplemental braking system the Stay-IN-Play DUO # SM99251 is a favorite around here because of how reliable it is and it's easier to install than many other permanently installed systems. You should use a stop light switch kit, part # RM-751471 to monitor the DUO.

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.
