The Roadmaster Deluxe Magnetic Tow Lights, # RM-2100, that you have referenced, uses a 4-Round type connector that is not compatible with a 4-Flat.

Consult the owners manual to confirm this and for other specific information on flat towing your Jeep. There are other items needed to flat tow your Jeep: base plates, tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. For base plates I recommend the Roadmaster XL base plates # 1439-1.

But if you are using a supplemental braking system (which is required by law in most states) then you will also need a brake light relay # RM-88400. If you will not be towing often then I recommend a magnetic kit like # C-ATL20A. This bypasses the vehicle wiring so a brake...
