Thanks.. I suppose it's this thing right here?

Trailer Tow Wiring Harness - 82212196AB | Mopar

I wonder if I can just buy the cover piece somewhere? ...since I don't have plans or needs to tow any time soon.

I think I can get away with just this for now perhaps to cover the hole:

(I bought the factory tow hitch, lower bumper with cutouts...etc..so I'm kinda piecing my way thru missing parts)

Jeep sells the wiring assembly that plugs into the factory wiring and provides both 4 and 7 pin connectors for lights and in the case of the 7 pin, brakes. The dealer does need to turn on the wiring in the vehicle computer to make it active.
