In order to add a 7 way connector on you 2020 Jeep Wrangler JL you'll need to start by adding a 4 way trailer connector like the Tekonsha # 118786, which gives you the connections needed to install a 7 way connector. Once you've installed the Tekonsha 4-way you'll want to install the # ETBC7 (for wired brake controllers) or # ETBC7L (for wireless brake controllers), which gives you the 7 way trailer connector you'll need.

If you don't already have a brake controller that you want to use, I recommend going the wireless route since your Wrangler doesn't have the plug available under the dash to allow for an easier installation- you won't need to run a brake output wire from the 7 way into the cab of the Jeep and you won't need to splice into any wires under the dash that might be hard to access to install the controller. Overall it's a much more convenient route, so I recommend using the # ETBC7L and the Curt Echo # C51180, which is a wireless brake controller that can be controlled by any smartphone running iOS 8.0 or newer/ Android 4.4 or newer. The Echo gives you the same proportional braking of many of the popular wired controllers and it's easy to use and install, which is a huge bonus.

I've linked some review and installation videos of these parts that you might be interested in as well.
