Expert Reply:

You will need 5 main parts to flat tow your 2022 Jeep Wrangler with factory bumper. Those parts are a base plate kit, tow bar, safety chains, tow bar wiring and supplemental braking system. I have included a recommendation for each of those below and a brief description of their purpose. It is also important to note there may be additional parts needed depending on what the manufacturer recommends/requires. You should reference your Jeep's owners manual to ensure you are doing everything that is recommended/required.

Base Plate Kit: This is a custom fit item that will allow you to attach the tow bar to your Jeep. I recommend the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM-521453-5. This base plate kit is made in the USA, has a limited lifetime warranty and will allow you to use a Roadmaster direct connect tow bar.

Tow Bar: This is what attaches to your RV and then connects to the base plate kit on your Jeep. I recommend the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar # RM-676. This tow bar is made in the USA, has a limited lifetime warranty and is compatible with the above recommended base plate kit. This tow bar also includes the safety chains, so you will not need to get them separately.

Tow Bar Wiring: This is what is going to allow you to use your Jeep Wrangler's tail lights and wiring system while preventing feedback from your RV. I recommend the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit # RM-154.

Supplemental Braking System: This is what is going to allow you to travel with and safely stop when towing your Jeep. I recommend the Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System # RM-8700. This system is made in the USA, has a limited lifetime warranty and installs permanently so that you never have to remove, adjust or reactivate. You will also need the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751490 to use this braking system.

You may also need a high-low adapter to get your tow set-up level. I have included a help article that goes over how to determine if an adapter is needed and which adapter you need if it is determined that one is needed. I have linked our selection of high-low adapters so that you can choose the correct one if it is determined that one is needed.
