Towing Questions

Hello, I am new to the site and this is my second jeep. I now own a 2011 compass sport. My question is, What do I need besides a hitch to tow a pop up under 2000 lbs. I mean do I need a ( cooler ) engine or trans and what wireing harness should I install? I will be installing these myself and can handle it. I just wanted to ask other Jeep owners what they have installed. Thanks for any help

Its an engine cooler option only that's available. I highly recommend you use synthetic oil when towing (you'll need ever edge you can get for this vehicle). You'll find the engine will rev a lot higher pulling away as well as cruising on the highway. PRM at 3k or higher will become the norm.

As for the harness. You could get a custom controller or tap a generic one into the tail lights however a controller is required for certain as I've got on mine installed by a shop.
