Simple, Hidden Design

Blue Ox Base Plate With Arms AttachedBlue Ox Base Plate Arms Removed

This base plate's hidden design creates a clean and seamless look. The bracket arms are easily removable, creating a slick appearance when you're not flat towing. Because the arms can be removed, you also won't have to worry about banging your leg into any protruding arms when you walk by.


Blue Ox Base Plate Removable Arms

Attaching and removing the bracket arms is a breeze. To attach the arms to the base plate, simply insert them into the receivers and rotate them until they lock into place. Once you're finished towing and want to remove the arms, pull the pin to disengage the lock, rotate the arms, and remove them from the receivers. Finally, plug up the now empty receivers with the included receiver covers to help keep dirt and debris out of the base plate and provide a finished look.


Guide to Flat Towing

Flat towing your vehicle is much more convenient than using a trailer or a tow dolly. These other options take up much more storage space, leaving you less room both at home and at the campsite. In addition, securing your vehicle to a trailer or tow dolly can be a hassle and more time consuming than hooking up with a tow bar.


There are 5 basic components needed when flat towing a vehicle: a tow bar, a base plate kit, a safety cable set, tow bar wiring, and a supplemental braking system.


Towing Basics

The tow bar links your towed car to your motorhome. It attaches to the custom-fit base plates that install on the frame of your towed car. Safety cables ensure that your towed car does not separate from your motorhome in the event that your tow bar becomes detached. Tow bar wiring allows your towed vehicle's signal lights to sync up with your motorhome's tail lights, which is required by law in most states. Finally, the supplemental braking system - also required in most states - brakes your towed car when the brakes in your motorhome are activated, preventing wear on the motorhome and decreasing braking distance for your entire setup.

John at etrailer.com was very friendly and helpful. I bought what I needed at the lowest price I found on the internet and I received my delivery in just a few days, much faster than I anticipated. The baseplate was pretty easy to install on my 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee but everything was exactly as the directions stated.

Jeep Grand Cherokee

I changed TOAD's from a Jeep Liberty to a Jeep Grand Cherokee and needed a new Base Plate for my Blue Ox Motor Home hitch. I am not in any way a Body Man, but with the great instructions that came with the Base Plate, the installation was a snap. Probably, the hardest part was drilling a couple of holes in the frame. The metal was tough. The finished product looks great on the vehicle, hooks up and works great. I highly recommend Blue Ox Hitches and Base Plates. They provide a fast, easy and safe way to tow a TOAD.


Comments
After a year of use, its rock solid, looks great, quick hook-ups and safe towing for thousands of miles. Very satisfied.

This was the Best option for our 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland (has the sensor in the middle bumper). Many of the other brands brackets go across the whole front and trying to fit everything behind the bumper facia is complex with all the sensors and lights on ours. Trimming the plastic is a must, of course (unfortunately); however, we didn't have to cut into the painted parts of the bumper. Instead of the traditional 6-pin plug, I used a 4-way plus a 2-way (special battery one for the 2-way) that I can tuck into the hole while not in use. This eliminates the large hole you would need to cut for the 6-way (which is extra ugly). You can barely tell we have the vehicle setup for towing. Ours has the air compressor on the drivers side, and this did require spacing; otherwise, it would make a noise and vibrate. You do have to drill a couple of holes with this kit (more if you don't already have tow hooks from the factory); however, it wasn't too bad and I made sure to paint over the holes to minimize any future corrosion. You will need two people to install as the bumper is difficult to remove/replace on your own, and you will do this a few times to get your holes trimmed properly. I would recommend professional installation for most people. etrailer shipped my order quickly and was helpful with any questions.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited X. Followed the etrailer video and the baseplates installed exactally as shown. I gave them 4 stars only because the outer gusset interference on both baseplates with the actual fascia and not only the lower grille. Basically, I would have had to cut into the red part of my bumper fascia to get it to reinstall correctly. I called Blue Ox and was told that this was an issue that they have seen before on Summit models and to remove some metal from the outer gussets with a grinder and to trim as much of the rear plastics as needed and it would fit "Very Snug". They did fit with those minor mods but it would have been nice to know going in that these modifications would be needed, or for as specific model with smaller outer gussets to be an option from Blue Ox. Overall though, I think they look great and am very pleased with the product and the install video from etrailer.

2013 Dodge Durango

I purchased a Blue Ox base plate, Air Force One braking system, and a light kit for my 2013 Durango. I could have not asked for an easier process with selecting and ordering, also the tutorials and videos were a great help in determining what was the best system for me . Everything arrived as planned and in great condition. This is not my first time using etrailer.com and my prior experience was equally good.


Comments
After using the items I reviewed, about 6,000 miles, I am more than satisfied. The towing setup is easy to hook up and unhook and the braking system is second to none. All of the installation was completed by myself and a friend, both of us have a technical background him more than me and we found the videos of the installation extremely helpful.Thank you for following up and providing excellent products as well as support services.

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee

installation on a 2011 jeep grand cherokee wasnt too bad. the instructions should have included a note on removal of the front fascia wheel well bolt clip. you have to pry the fascia over the bolt clip. it will not just pull off. i used a 90 degree drill attachment to drill the upper frame mounting plates. my jeep had the tow hooks from the factory. the base plates fit well. i had to trim the "opening" very little where the base plates come through the fascia. great customer support from bob and carla

Good product that works well. Ease to use and attach to tow bar. The only thing that makes it a little difficult to install is that you have to drill a couple of holes through the frame for bolts that holes do not exist. The frame is vey hard material. Other than that it works great.

Ordered a tow bar for my jeep to tow behind my motor home. Michelle was super knowledgeable and very easy to talk. I felt very confident she understood what I wanted for the vehicle I had. Then she told me it would be delivered in 4 days and one of those days was Sunday (BIG LAUGH OUT LOUD) it WAS delivered in 4 days.

2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee

This product is great but the instruction were lacking greatly. If it were not for youtube videos I may still be struggling to finish this job. After learning some tricks with the videos it took me 3 1/2 hours start to finish on my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland. I am not a professional installer (first timer) but I am not a novice when it comes to autos and trucks by any means. I found this to be moderately difficult and not for the novice. The only negetive product comment I have is the need to trim the tow hook of the bumper cover for what could have been made to center in the opening without a need to cut the openings on one side. Sorry no pics.



- BX1128

I can verify this fits 2021 Grand Cherokee Limited and 80th Anniversary model. The following comments are SPECIFIC to Grand Cherokee without factory tow hooks. It is difficult to get a clean cut to make space for the brackets to protrude through the front fascia. A dremel cut off wheel melts the plastic fascia, making a mess that is difficult to clean up. It might be better to use a drill bit in the corners, then a jig saw. It will also require sanding the edges after, -- a power small diamond shape will fit a lot of it. Also have a good file on hand, and some sandpaper. My first cutout attempt was not clearing the brackets. On the driver side, go a bit futher to the outside edge (maybe 1/4"), and at least 1/8" more at top then you think you need. On the passenger side, it was not clearing one of the install bolts/nuts (bottom edge). I recommend going 1/4" more on the outside edge, and 1/4" more on the bottom edge. For the tow wiring bracket, a flat mount is much easier than a angle mount for this Grand Cherokee model. You might buy both in advance to see what will work best. This one worked better for me: Roadmaster Straight Electrical Socket Bracket Item # RM-910030. This one did not work out for me: Roadmaster 910030-5 Bracket With 90 Degree Bend. Trimming the fasia was time intensive for me. Plan accordingly. The brackets themselves (and install) worked out fine

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee

This is the third Blue Ox Base Plate Kit I've purchased since buying a Monaco Coach in 2004. The first was for a Jeep Wrangler. The second was for a Jeep Grand Cherokee. The third is for a current model Jeep Grand Cherokee. This is by far the best buying experience I've had. The price was very competitive, the delivery was timely and best of all, Cathy T was very helpful when I needed advice on the replacement of my electric Umbilical cord and other accessories. There was no pressure, just suggestions. I don't know if I'll ever need to replace either the Coach or the Jeep, but if I do and need more towing equipment, I'll be back!

    According to Blue Ox, it'll take an experienced installer about 4 to 5 hours to complete the installation of their # BX1128 Base Plate Kit on a 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The install isn't what I'd call super-difficult, but the installation will involve partially disassembling the front clip of the vehicle as shown in the linked install video. In addition to the base plates, you'll need a tow bar, safety cables, a wiring harness, a supplemental braking system and possibly a high/low adapter....

    At the very least you'll be able to reuse the Blue Ox tow bar you have but the rest of the setup will depend on what you have to some degree. The base plate kit will need to be replaced for sure since those are vehicle specific. The braking most likely can be reused but it would either be a simple swap or a more involved one depending on the kit. This is also true for the wiring as well.

  • Solution for Blue Ox Base Plate Kit that Got Bent with Older Style Tow Bar
    Blue Ox is correct. The adapter you mentioned is for fitting a Blue Ox base plate to a Roadmaster tow bar so it would not work for you. Only safe solution you have at this time is to go to a newer tow bar which has the correct lug style and replace your bent removable tabs. The # BX7380 would be a solid choice for a tow bar that would work well and then for replacement tabs you'd want the # BX62-3468.
