Parts Recommendation to Flat Tow 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited


Hello. I have a 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport and was wondering if someone could assist me with finding a flat-tow hitch setup that will allow my skoolie converted bus to be able to tow my jeep on the back via the tow hitch I have already installed. I was looking at item #RM-676, but was unsure if I needed a certain type of bumper on my jeep to be able to accommodate the system. I currently only have stock bumpers on my wrangler.

The Roadmaster Nighthawk Tow Bar part # RM-676 is an excellent choice for a tow bar for flat towing your 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. It's the easiest to use, has plenty of capacity, comes with wiring, and also safety cables.

For a base plate kit you'd then need the part # RM-521453-5 which fits your 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and is compatible with the Nighthawk.

For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-152, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your tow vehicle to control the taillight assemblies of the towed vehicle. This comes with a round 6-way connector that you will install on the front of your towed vehicle and enough coiled wire to go from there to the RV.

And finally, most states now require supplemental braking in the vehicle being flat towed. The easiest system to set up and use is the Blue Ox Patriot # BLU37TR, that applies the vehicle brakes in proportion to how much the tow vehicle is braking. This is the safest way to stop and it reduces wear and tear on both vehicles.

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.
