Wiring a 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited

I should have our 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited in a couple weeks, It is currently sitting in a rail car on its way from the factory. My question is, has anyone wired up a 2014 or 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee for towing? What wiring kit did you use? Has anyone used the kit that includes the sockets and bulbs. For our 2015 Jeep Cherokee, I used a Demco Plug-N-Play harness. It was a little pricey, but there were no wires to cut, just plug the connectors into the existing tail light harness. Using that type of harness the brake lights of the toad, override the turn signals from the Coach. Not an insurmountable problem, just looking for the best way to go.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can't install light sockets since you have LED lights.
No place to drill without damage.

For ours I installed two relays, one for each brake light.
The relay is activated by the 12v charge line.

It switches the LED from jeep to coach.
This way turn signals work correctly.

I used a "Tow-Daddy" plug-n-play type on my 2012 and then moved it to my 2014. Works great, no holes to drill or wire splicing. That unit is no longer made but I would assume the Hopkins or Demco plug-n-play units would work the same.
