No I tow an Escape Hybrid. But you can go here and check it out. Application Charts | Remco Towing Looks like all you need is a tow bar and a braking system.

I also have the blue ox tow bar but on the car I have the Roadmaster base plates also their diode wiring harness for the blinkers and brakes lights. I have as yet installed a braking system for it. Total cost for parts and labor came around $1200.

Do you just put the flex into neutral and go. I currently tow my jk and it is easy to tow. But I'm going to have a baby and need the extra room

You will have to read the owner manual to be sure. With my Escape I tow in N with the key in ACC.

Are you happy with the Air Force One braking system and do you have gas or diesel?
