The hitch on my 2002 comes with a 4 pin flat plug. But it really depends on the trailer plug. There are adapters for the 5 pin round plugs but you need a brake controller if your trailer has brakes.

What size hardware is required to install an after sales market trailer hitch on a 2003 liberty?

If your jeep does not have a factory trailer hitch installed then you would look one up online, in a catalog, or go to a hitch dealer, and find one make for your jeep. If you have the factory hitch receiver then you are most likely looking for what is called a ball mount. My 2003 liberty with factory hitch receiver requires a 2 inch ball mount. That's the outside size of the square tubing. You will also need the 'ball' itself. The size required is determined by the 'hitch' on the trailer or device being towed. 1-7/8 and 2 inch balls are common sizes. You may also need a T-One adaptor to hook up the trailer lighting. Anyone competent at Napa, AutoZone, CarQuest, etc. should be able to help you out if you need a personalized touch.

What is the towing capacity of a 2002 Mercury Villager?

For towing trailers up to 2,000 lb, use a class 2 hitch which is bolted to the frame. For towing trailers up to 3,500 lb, use a frame-mounted weight distributing hitch which transfers a portion of the weight to the front axle. Depending on the weight of the trailer, you may want to consider adding a transmission cooler and possibly a heavy duty battery. You will also need a trailer tow module and jumper harness for the lights or brakes if equiped.
