The Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar w/ LED Lights # RM-676 is a great choice for flat towing your 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler. It has a non-binding design which makes disconnecting a breeze on any terrain and a large hookup radius to make connecting to your base plates easy on any terrain as well. It has LED lights to help you hook up or disconnect in the dark and comes with a 6-way to 7-way cable and safety cables so you won't have to purchase them separately.

To flat tow your vehicle you'll also need a base plate, tow bar wiring kit, and a braking system. I have the following recommendations for you below:

Base Plate: Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM-521453-5. This base plate kit has removable direct-connect arms that make hookup fast and simple to your Nighthawk tow bar and provide a clean look when not in use. Note: These base plates are only compatible with factory bumpers, if you have a different bumper let me know so I can find a compatible base plate with your bumper.

Tow Bar Wiring Kit: Since your tow bar already has the 6-way to 7-way cable I recommend getting the RoadMaster Nighthawk All Terrain and Sterling All Terrain Towing Combo Kit # RM-9284-2. This combo kit will come with the diodes and wiring you need to connect your RV to your vehicle's lighting system as well as a storage cover, locks, 6-pole connector bracket, lube, and more.

Braking System: Brake Buddy Select 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System - Proportional # HM39524. This system offers intense, emergency braking or steady, smooth braking in a single portable system. Easily switch between proportional or full braking conveniently from your RV with the remote. The included charge line kit will keep your battery charged to prevent you from arriving at your destination and having to deal with a dead battery.
