I recommend Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98856 for the 2020 Jeep Wrangler because it features 9" long receiver tube so bike racks and other accessories can clear the spare tire on the Wrangler. It will also provide you with 3,500 gross towing weight capacity which is plenty enough to tow your small trailer. The matte black finish of the etrailer hitch gives it a nice rugged look on the 2020 Jeep compared to the glossy powder coat finish of the other options. I have attached an installation video for your reference.

For the wiring, I recommend Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector part # 118786 which is considered a more reliable wiring option compared to the other brands. It also offers the highest rated amperage so it can handle more power than the other wiring options to protect your vehicle's wiring. I have attached an installation video of the wiring for you as well.

Since you plan on doing some towing you may consider the etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If you are not sure how much rise/drop you may need in a ball mount to tow your trailer level, I recommend to take a look at the helpful article I have attached about how to figure the amount of rise or drop you may need.

For the 4 bike rack, I recommend the Thule Hitching Post Pro part # TH934XTR which features 13-1/2" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the carrier for spare tire clearance. The Hitching Post pro is one of our most popular bike racks at an outstanding price point that will clear the spare tire. The arms also fold down for easy storage. You will also need Thule Cable Lock part # TH538XT and part # THSTL2 to protect your investment. I have added a video for your reference of the rack.
