Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2002-2004 Jeep Liberty


I am considering buying either a 2002 or a 2004 Jeep Liberty and am wanting to flat tow it. What would I need?

We have everything you'll need to flat tow a 2002 through 2004 Jeep Liberty. But the first thing you need to determine is if you will buy one with a brush guard or without. If there isn't a brush guard you'd want the base plate kit part # RM-521423-5 with the Roadmaster Nighthawk part # RM-676. Or if you go with a brush guard you'd want the base plate kit part # 521426-1 with the Sterling tow bar part # RM-576. To protect either tow bar when not in use the cover part # RM-055-3 is recommended as well.

For wiring to control the taillights of the vehicle on the highway you'd want the Hopkins kit part # HM56203 which is a custom fit kit that will install easily. For a braking system the SMI DUO part # SM99251 would be your best option. It's our installer's favorite as it installs the easiest and works the best. You'll need a brake lite relay part # RM-88400 too so that your brake pedal does not override the turn signals of the tow bar wiring kit.

To keep the battery of the vehicle topped off when you are flat towing the Roadmaster charge kit part # RM-156-25 would be what you'd want as well.

Most likely you will also need a high low adapter so that the tow bar will be level when you are flat towing. I attached a link to a page that has all of the ones we carry.

I have included a couple of helpful links to our articles on flat towing for you. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual for more specific information on flat towing your vehicle.
