We did that with a 90 YJ in the early 90's a real PITA to hook up. Currently use the Blue OX tow bar and base plate. Easier to hook up then a trailer. The current Wrangler is a 2016 JKU. Handled great all through the rockies.

If you go with a smittybuilt you have to be careful which one you get. I'm setting up a tj to tow and first ordered the src classic bumper and it only has 2 bolts holding it on the top and 2 on the bottom. I then looked at the xrc bumper and it had all the bolts like stock 4 on top and 2 on the bottom. Good /bad news it's a winch bumper so now I have to get a winch
