Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2007 Jeep Wrangler

The 2007 Jeep Wrangler is flat-towable. The Wranglers are the most popular vehicle for flat-towing. If you have a 2007 Wrangler yours can easily be flat towed and we carry everything you would need.

You will need to start with a base plate kit like the part # 1429-1 which is a fit for your Wrangler and would provide the attachment point for a tow bar.

In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The most popular compatible tow bar is the Falcon 2, # RM-520. For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground.

For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your tow vehicle to control the taillight assemblies of the towed vehicle. This comes with a round 6-way connector that you will install on the front of your towed vehicle and enough coiled wire to go from there to the RV.

And finally, most states now require supplemental braking in the vehicle being flat towed. The easiest system to set up and use is the Blue Ox Patriot # BLU37TR, that applies the vehicle brakes in proportion to how much the tow vehicle is braking. This is the safest way to stop and it reduces wear and tear on both vehicles.

Most likely you will also need a high low adapter so that the tow bar will be level when you are flat towing. I attached a link to a page that has all of the ones we carry.

I have included a couple of helpful links to our articles on flat towing for you. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual for more specific information on flat towing your vehicle.

We are about to purchase a new class a RV. Entegra coach vision 29S. It comes with a 5000lb tow hitch not a 7500lb like the salesman said. What am I limited to towing? Was going to purchase a Jeep since I hear they a the most popular to tow. Do I need to upgrade it to a 7500lb? Thank you,

A Jeep Wrangler should be comfortably under 5,000 pounds, so I'm not sure you will need to upgrade the RV's hitch. Of course when you get closer to deciding on the vehicle you can verify it's weight to be sure. I linked a nice article on the most popular options below as well.
