Want to install a trailer hitch on a 2019 Limited with hands free power lift-gate. Where exactly are the sensors that activate the lift gate?

Cool

Iím sorry that I don't have an answer about the sensors, but I have questions for you. Are you installing a Jeep hitch or aftermarket? How much will your trailer weigh fully loaded? Which engine do you have?

I have a V6 4X4. I'm asking the question to decide if I should buy the factory hitch or go with an aftermarket depending on interference with the lift gate sensors.

If you intend to tow over 1000# by all means consider the factory tow package. This isn't just a hitch, IIRC it includes a lower rear gear ratio, trans cooler, stability software, etc. And yes more money, but safety and reliability have no price.

I can only assume its the same across all models.
