We use the Blue Ox Aventa tow bar and SMI Air Force One braking system - very pleased! About 5 minutes connect / disconnect. Safe travels ...

ReadyBrute Elite tow bar with integrated brake system. Best bang for the buck if buying new.

I use a Blue Ox tow bar and Brake Buddy bought used via Craigslist.

Ready brute and Blue Ox base plate. If your at all handy it's a DO it you self 3hour project. Lights are a different story, I went wireless and took more time to put the batteries in than to install.

Is this a four wheel drive Liberty? Everyone so far has assumed it was.

We shopped for a Liberty. The salesman said they were all 4X4. Didn't want it.

We towed our 2008 Liberty for four years - Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar and Roadmaster Base Plates. Installed a US Gear braking system. Never had a lick of problem, except for the time when DW set the Liberty Park Brake and forgot to mention it. I found out pretty quick there was a problem. I put an extra set of bulbs in the taillights for the tow lights so I did not have to use Diodes.

I also tow a Jeep Liberty (2012) and use a Blue Ox Aladdin tow bar. For braking I have the RViBrake 2. Usually only takes about 10 minutes to hook up or un-hook including setting the RViBrake.

It is a 4x4 with a transfer case that has a neutral position.
