Flat Tow Wire Harness for 2017 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk

Just purchased a new 2017 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. It requires a wire harness for flat towing. My local Jeep dealership and FCA 800 number are both telling me the part has not been manufactured yet.

I read some other posts on this topic pertaining tp the 2014-model years. It appears not all 2017 experience the wobble issue which is why the harness is required.

I'm thinking if trying to tow without it and see how it does.

This is my first post and I'm interested to see the responses.
