To flat tow your 2021 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk you'll need the following items:

Tow Bar: The Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar w/ LED Lights - RV Mount - 8K Item # RM-676 is a perfect choice for a tow bar and comes with a 7-way to 6-way cable and 6-way port and safety cables.

Tow Bar Wiring: Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit Item # RM-154. You'll cut the 4-pin connector off of this and be able to wire it to the 6-way port that comes with your tow bar.

Base Plates: Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms Item # RM-521451-5. These direct connect base plates allow for easy hook up of your tow bar.

Braking System: We don't currently carry the ReadyBrake brand so I instead recommend the Brake Buddy Stealth Supplemental Braking System - Proportional Item # HM39530. This system is a one time install that bolts under the driver's seat and comes with a battery charger to keep your Jeep's battery charged while towing.

Safety Cables: Your tow bar already comes with safety cables so you won't have to buy any separately.
