Every flat-towed vehicle requires the same components: base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, wiring, and a braking system. I've hand-picked the best products confirmed to fit your 2018 JK Jeep Wrangler with a standard factory bumper (no winches or guards). Check them out below.

1. Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM-521448-5 (Not a fit for Winter, Hard Rock, or 75th Anniversary models)
2. Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar part # RM-676 (includes safety cables and a wiring extension)
3. Hopkins Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles part # HM56200 (plug and play - does not require splicing into your Jeep's wiring)
4. Blue Ox Patriot Portable Braking System part # BLU37TR

Your 2018 Jeep JK also requires a brake-lite relay kit # RM-88400. The purpose of a brake light relay kit is to prevent your towed car's brake signal from overriding the turn signal that comes from your RV.

Finally you may need a high low adapter to make up for the height difference between the Jeep and the RV. I have attached a helpful article that helps you figure out which high low adapter may be needed as well as our selection of high low adapters.
