Needing to know what you recommend to flat tow my 2020 Wrangler with a factory bumper. You guys have a lot of options and I'm a little overwhelmed at what to get. Any guidance would be much appreciated!

I have the perfect setup for your 2020 Jeep Wrangler! I really like the Demco products because they have clean systems that are also very practical, plus they are regarded as a leading brand in the flat towing industry so you can be confident that you are getting quality products.

For a base plate kit you need part # DM9519336 for a plastic bumper or part # DM9519339 if you have the steel bumper. Then for a tow bar I highly recommend the Demco Dominator # DM9511008 because it not only has a sweet-looking gold plating on the arms, but they are also one of the only sets out there with aluminum and steels components that are made in the USA and backed by a limited lifetime warranty. Since the tow bar is rated at 7,500 lbs it will last you for years to come.

Safety cables are included with the tow bar so you just need a wiring kit and a braking system. I really like the Demco Tow Bar Kit # DM9523057 because it comes with all of the wiring parts you need as well as locks and a cover to help protect your tow bar from the elements and thieves of opportunity.

If your motorhome has hydraulic brakes then I recommend the Stay-IN-Play DUO # SM99251 (with Stop Light Switch # RM-751490 or for air brakes the Air Force One # SM99243. These kits install one time and are very easy to get ready for flat towing as you only need to make a few simple connections instead of having to set up a portable unit.

Some towing applications require a high-low adapter to keep the tow bar from stretching too much but Demco thought of this and made the Dominator with an offset shank and an adjustable head unit to reduce how many people actually need an adapter. Nevertheless it is still important to double check that you're going to be in the safe zone so I have attached a link to a helpful article that goes over this as well as a link to our selection of adapters and some other helpful articles and videos you can reference.
