Updates on all of this, found some helpful threads over on JL Wrangler Forums but posting here for anyone searching.
Opted to not go with the Roadmaster Tow Bar which would lower my front clearance and... when given the opportunity to get a new bumper, why not? Hah!
Installed the RockHard4x4 Aluminum JL Bumper with Roadmaster mounts:
Also added a Warn Winch while in there since it's best to install that on the bumper before putting the bumper on the Jeep.
Got the Roadmaster Nighthawk tow bar:
Roadmaster Inc. - Tow Bars, Braking Systems & RV Accessories
And the RVIBrake3 kit + 10 tire sensors:
With the CoolTech Harness for lighting:
SKIP the Deluxe Kit and just order this instead because Nighthawk comes with 6-to-7 pin cord and the below is a much easier way to get 12V direct power from battery:
Added some Method 701's and Nitto Ridge Grappler tires with a Rubicon Express 2" lift. Ready to roll.
