We have a 2004 4x4 automatic that we tow. Very easy to hookup and tow.

Check your owner's manual.

We had a 2003. Blue ox towbar. Straight forward. Hook up towbar, attach safety chains, put transmission in park, put transfer case in neutral, turn key one click.

Get a braking system. Brake Buddy is good. Run a dedicated 12 volt line to the toad for the braking system.

And, a tire pressure monitoring system.

We would use walkie talkies with me sitting in the jeep for a bit while DW drove a few miles to be sure that every thing was okay. After a few times we'd just hook up and go. Probably towed the toad about 15 k miles and no problems.

Plan your stops with some care because you cannot back up. Maybe a few inches, but not much more.

One thought about lights, we had a direct hook up with diodes to use the Jeep's lights, which was fussy. Now, I would just use a lightbar with magnets.

We sold the Liberty. We have a towing cover, covers grill area, hood, fenders and windshield, for the Liberty in the garage if you're interested.

I toe a 2004 Jeep Liberty auto transmission 4wd.... Transmission in park & transfer in neutral (fee wheeling) I also removed the steering wheel and removed the locking mechanism, this way You don't have to leave the ignition key in the first click position. I have pulled this same Jeep in excess of 150, 000 miles behind 3 different motor homes thus far no problems..Hope this helps.
