Are you only checking one mfr? I'm sure that others have what you need. Demco, Roadmaster, Blue Ox, others?

Search for this thread. It should address your question on baseplate and braking.

I believe prior years needed an extra small wire harness for electric assist power steering but has been addresses by jeep. But charge wire to Jeep will most likely be a must.
To grab biggest info base I would go right to Google. This is what I found. Trailer is go to place for what you need as well as info.

Bagelboy,

Do check the owners manual under "Recreational Towing" and see if Jeep included the necessity of a supplemental wiring harness to power the Electronic Power Steering (EPS) while the vehicle is being towed 4 wheels down.

The Cherokee and Grand Cherokee are prone to the infamous "Death Wobble" (wheels oscillating rapidly left and right) under certain circumstances and road conditions causing the coach to shake violently until speed is reduced or you come to a complete stop.

FCA paid to have my harness installed by my Jeep dealer after the problem was brought to light originally by Family Motor Coaching Association on behalf of numerous members.
