If you would like to use tow bar brackets, any brand will do as long as 1) it matches your tow bar, and 2) the rating is at least the weight of the vehicle, preferably a bit more. Do not get any bracket which simply attaches to the stock factory front bumper with bolts. The factory bumper is just too flimsy. Get one which attaches directly to the frame.
You might also consider an auxiliary brake system, which will apply the Jeep brakes while in moderate deceleration with your foot on the brake, and which will bring the Jeep to a stop in case it breaks completely away from the tow vehicle. As unlikely as that may seem, it happens. And many states require it.
If you do that, you will need to account for the rear Jeep tail, turn signal, and emergency flasher lights, or add separate lights attached magnetically. I wired in a harness to ensure the motorhome light circuit drives the Jeep tail lights and turn signals, and also wired in a battery charge circuit with fuse and circuit breaker, so the motorhome alternator charges the Jeep battery while being towed. Bought nearly everything on Craigslist, so it was reasonable. With one notable exception, which was the wiring harness with diodes, which was purchased at etrailer.com.
