Questions about setting up my 09 Jeep Wrangler unlimited for towing

Morning all, I'm getting ready to set my wife's 09 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited for flat towing and I have a question or two.

I'm planning on buying the ReadyBrute Elite tow bar, Mopar Wiring Harness, Blue Ox Base Plate, Smart Solutions Rock Guard.

Any other thoughts of things I'll need? Do I need to pick up the break away kit?

Almost exact same setup I have on my 2010 Wrangler Sport. Works great. I think some states require the " breakaway " setup, so I would install it. I also went with the removable tow pins on the Blue Ox - saves the shins !

X3 on the Breakaway kit. I have a 2014 Wrangler and went with the Demco base plate mainly because my Ready Brute towbar already had the Demco Clevis for my old toad. Others have used the Currie base plate which also serves as a front skid plate, and does not require you to install the front air dam.(If present on the 09 Wrangler). Tried to find out from Currie if my Demco tow bar ends will fit their plate and was not successful in obtaining this information.
Also used the Mopar harness, which requires you to remove the passenger front fender to get at the firewall for the install. Something you might want to consider. The Mopar harness does light the Jeeps rear license plate something you don't get with other solutions. Also the Ready Brute Elite tow bar will cause the high brake light of the Jeep to illuminate when it is applied.
