Done a bit of googling and ended up back here a few times with most threads about adding towing after the fact. Just need to verify , that when hookingup the trailer to the 7 pin system , I still need to hook up the controller to the vehicle ? Confused about it a little.

Yes your jl doesn’t come with a trailer brake controller even if you get the tow package you only get the wiring for the controller.
you buy a separate trailer brake controller and plug it in. most plug in under the dash.

Thank you for the clear and concise answer. So the trailer we are buying comes with the controller. So if that is the case, I just need to add the wiring harness ?

My JLUR had a wiring harness from the factory. Look under dash, far left side of driver side footwell. Should be an available harness ziptied there.

The 4 pin connector is way up in there. Behind the dash and straight up kinda right above half way between your left shin and knee. It’s closer to the dash than the firewall. There is a picture on here in a big tow thread somewhere. It’s tied up to a main harness.

Watch this to get the location, JL JT are the same -
