Hello people:

About 2 weeks ago I bought a 2007 Jeep Commander Sport and I need some advice.

This is my first SUV so I'm a little lost about what I need to tow trailers.
In about a week I plan taking a short trip that will require a trailer to tow a jet ski, right now my Commander has the trailer hitch installed but no ball installed. My question is what do I need to do to be prepared for this trip as far as the ball and setting up all the lighting for it?

Thank you very much for your patience and advice

Hello and welcome. Go to walmart, advnace auto, one of those places and
get a hitch and ball.

What size is the receiver? That is the square in back. What size ball do you need?
That will be on the trailer tounge.

Are the lights set up?
