Here is Mopars add:
Jeep Wrangler 4-Door Hitch Receiver (seems quadratech left the 4 door part out however image in instruction on mopar site shows a 2 door?)
3,500-lb tow rating, 350-lb tongue weight rating with weight distributing equipment; otherwise 2000-lb tow rating, 200-lb tongue weight rating, 2" opening, Same as Production, Hitch Ball and ball mount sold separately. Center mount rear Tow Hook cannot be used with Hitch Receiver.
That is for the 4 door only, and if the manufacture has designed the frame to handle than I would say that would be fine. Like I said above if the manufacture has a hitch and frame properly designed than I would say you are good to go, otherwise I would use that type of setup.
This is what the jeep page says:
You already know that Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited allows you to conquer any terrain, but it also has a healthy 3,500-pound towing capacity, when properly equipped.
Trailer Sway Control+ works with Electronic Stability Control+ and the Antilock Brake System, alternating brake pressure to automatically correct oscillation in the vehicle trailer system. The Electronic Stability Control function lamp will flash when Trailer Sway Control is activated.
