My new 2019 Rubicon wants to be towed, at least I'm itching to take it fishing with me.

Anyone set one up yet?

I have a 2019 Sport S that I set up to tow. Went with the Ready Brake Elite tow bar and Ready stop brake away. Rockhard Patriot Bumper

Nice. I ordered the steel bumpers so I need to purchase a baseplate. My 08 towed from my bumper like yours.
Lights? What’s your set up.

I used the Cool Tech wiring harness, very easy install and comes complete with everything you need. I went with the deluxe kit that adds the 8' 7 pin to 6 pin pigtail, 6 pin connector and battery charger. Cool Tech

JEEPS I do not care much for JEEPS. Had a Jeep Commander full Trail rated and told nothing will slow you down. Thinking deep wilderness drives, while driving on a 6-lane HIGHWAY an 18" by 18" pillow blow onto and under my NEW JEEP COMMANDER and stopped me dead and lucky I made it to the side of the road with cars and trucks flying past at 80-Plus MPH. Ripped out the rear cable and was in the shop for 2-1/2 weeks. Now as you're laughing at me, ask yourself, how many Jeep commanders do you see on the road today? As for tow all vehicle come with an Operator's Manual, but then again its a JEEP. One last point putting on new equipment could void new vehicle warranties. They did not cover my transmission, but hey looks cool in the shop as well as out. [emoticon]

Can’t figure out what point you are trying to make.

Okay, As I read the first post you made about being towed. Not adding as a tow vehicle or broken down on the side of the road. Most vehicles came with an operators manual showing step by step how to set up for towing.

when I first saw my Jeep Commander I added all I would need for the woods. The first trip was the HIGHWAY ISSUE. Stuff happens no problem right simple fix, as for being in the shop for two half weeks was the line that broke apart was in two parts and they ordered one part, then the other part.

Next issue towing behind the MH created a transmission issue and was in the shop MANY times at my cost. Even the parts salesman was wondering why It was not covered. A long time ago but had to do with being towed behind an MH. As for my JEEP, I never made it over 15,000-Miles before I sold it.

So I guess I'm just venting as I was so looking forward to a 4-wheel mountain trails drive for 5-years prior and it just never happened. So if you had a Toyota I may not have said a word. But hey do what you will and I hope you have better luck enjoy your JEEP.

Well your first mistake was buying a commander. They make me cringe when I see them much less calling that thing a Jeep. Secondly, I owned a wrangler for 10 years and towed it behind my motor home. After 140k trouble free miles I sold it and purchased a 19 rubicon.i ordered it exactly as I wanted it.i will set it up for towing , just curious if anyone else has yet.
I crew on top fuel funny cars, setting up a tow package is something to do before lunch.
