First I will assume that your Jeep is towable 4 wheels down. That being said, Blue Ox and Roadmaster are two big names in towing.
I personally have the Roadmaster brackets on my Buick Rendezvous and I use the Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain tow bar. I purchased the brackets and tow bar online from rvadventure.net and had a local shop install it for me. It cost me $150 to have the brackets put on my vehicle. I think that's a pretty good price to pay for professional installation.

I have a 2 dr jeep. I tow with a Currie baseplate (replaces the front plastic valance panel with a steel one; $200, easy bolt on and hell for stout. Having seen some "professional" jobs, I took my chances and did it myself), a Blue Ox tow bar, and a Brake Buddie. I used the CoolTech wiring harness for the jeep lights, which almost installs itself, plugs directly into the Jeep harness. takes maybe 5 minutes to set everything up. Getting the baseplate and wiring set up was an easy half-day job. Personally, I think the Blue Ox base plate is overpriced and flimsy compared to the Currie (they make the Rock Jock line of skid plates). The Blue Ox towbar, however, is a gorgeous piece of machinery, worth every penny when trying to hook up in a snowstorm.

The Brake Buddie is a pretty simple device, there are more sophisticated systems out there, but it's certainly easy and relatively inexpensive, and has the additional advantage of being easily salable if I decide to go with something else in the future.

Blue Ox and Roadmaster, can't go wrong with either. Welcome to the forum, there are a lot of nice folks on this forum that are always willing to help. As they say, Ask and you will receive.

I see this is your first post. Welcome.

There are many threads on this subject and I would do a little searching and reading. There are many opinions and products to review.

Have fun.

We went with the Roadmaster brackets and the Sterling All Terrain tow bar for our Buick Rendezvous. The tow bar is very easy to use.
