Towing questions...

Due to a new venture of my wife's, I am needing to tow with the TJ. I know that it is limited to 2000 lbs which I don't think will be a problem. I already have a receiver on my tomken bumper. It has frame tie in's sort of, as in two metal strips that bolt to the underside of the bumper and bolt to where the factory bumper bolted on the underside of the frame. I am planning on buying some of the frame tie in's that bolt to the side of the frame and sandwich the rear cross member between the bracket and the bumper. My main question is about lighting, I've never had a vehicle that was setup for towing before so I need to know where to buy a harness or should i go to the stealership? Is the wiring gonna be fairly easy? I've done lots of wiring before, mostly concerned with where the location of the harness to tap into is.

honestly, go to wal mart. i know thats hard to believe but they carry ALOT of specific vehicle trailer light kits. and they come with pretty decent instructions, atleast the ones for our dodge ram did. and if i remember right, we got everything we needed for under 25 bucks
