You can get anyone you want. Jeep doesn't care.

I know they dont but do I have to splice any wires or stuff with the other one. I know the mopar one is plug and play. The rugged ridge one has the same plugs but I think you have to find a suitable ground where as the mopar one is all plug and play...

I used a few zip ties mounting the wires on top of the steel so not to cut the wires while off road. I have pulled trailer with it a few times and everything works well.

I have the Rugged Ridge trailer hitch and the Mopar harness and everything works perfectly. Plug and play and the harness has the plastic tabs on it to attach it to the frame.
