2018 Jeep Wrangler

I bought the BX1133 baseplate made by Blue Ox. I installed it on my 2018 Jeep Wrangler Jk (Freedom Edition, “Oscar Mike”). The install was fairly easy. Saved me money by doing it myself. It’s a really tight fit between the D-rings. Took a while to line up the holes for the bolts. Had to use a rubber mallet to help get the plate set. But once you get it everything else is pretty easy. I have yet to install the safety cables. Looking forward to towing my Jeep behind my RV. Good product hopefully it’s hold up over time. 545270

Great Product... fit as subscribed on 2011 Ford Ranger,easy to follow instructions. There was no communication from e-trailer. After 8 days of nothing I had to call, product at that time had not even been shipped. Very Disappointing. Not so sure I'll buy from them again. 281955

I purchased this unit for our 2014 Ford Flex and it had performed perfectly. I installed it myself and was impressed with how easily it went together and how strong of a unit it is. We have hauled the Flex about 12k miles on both line NH and short runs and absolutely no problems. And it loooks good too even when we're towing. 365552

George, just finished install of blue ox base plate on my 2015 Buick enclave not for the faint of hand to install but all is well if u are good take your time some caution when drilling lower frame holes as inner holes are close but excellent fit and finish thanks for a great product 312252

Blue ox base plate is still great just a note for users you may need to lube the inside of the holes where the aluminum adapters for the tow bar connection is as one time I could not turn it to lock in for towing this solved the problem

Review from a similar Standard in Base Plates


This baseplate is very well made and sturdy. I would rate it excellent but for 2 flaws: 1. My vehicle has a power steering cooler which the instructions say to relocate on the supplied brackets. Relocating as instructed puts excessive strain on the connecting hoses. I had to cut the pipes and add about 3 inches of rubber hose to the power steering cooler to make it fit comfortably. 2. Blue Ox do not provide any kind of support outside office hours. This type of product is typically installed by the user over a weekend and BO should provide support to their customers during this time. Overall, I would rate ease of install at 5 (out of 10) excluding the cooler issue. Hook up to the completed baseplate is a breeze. We have the Aventa II towbar which takes about 2 minutes to connect. 108372

My third Blue Ox Base Plate. Fit and function are perfect. Fits my existing (first) tow bar and the tab height is nearly exactly the same as my 12 year older Jeep so didn't even need to make any draw bar changes. 111481

Still attached and working perfectly. Continues to survive some rather intense back country trails with no complaints.

I am sending some pictures of my installation of the base plate and the wiring harness (TM783130) and the blue ox tow bar on my 2005 Honda CRV. It worked out OK although the instruction for the base plate ( BX2238) installation instructions could be improved some. Everything is installed and operational. Have towed the Honda 150 miles satisfactorily. Thanks for your interest. 468877

Review from a similar Standard in Base Plates


The base plate was fairly easy to install on our 2013 Honda C-RV. The videos on etrailer are very helpful, giving us the confidence to do the job in our own garage. The only problem with installation was that the holes didn't quite line up after removing the bumper. I think that was noted in the instructions. The removable arms work well and we have had no issues. We have been using this product towing our car behind our motor home for over 15K miles in the last year without incident. I recommend this product. 352325

  • Parts Needed for Flat Towing 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with AEV Front Bumper
    You are on the right track for flat towing your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with the AEV bumper. The base plate kit part # BX1133 is the correct fit and the Ascent Tow Bar part # BX4370 would work well with this. For lighting the part # RM-15267 is a great choice but instead of the Invisi Brake I would recommend the Demco DUO part # SM99251 as it installs easier and is a more effective braking solution. Your application would not require a brake light relay either.

  • Will Blue Ox Base Plate Kit BX1133 Fit AEV Tubeless Bumper
    The Blue Ox base plate kit part # BX1133 hasn't been confirmed as a fit for the AEV bumper on our end or with Blue Ox, but if AEV has tested it and confirmed that it does fit I would assume it does. The most popular tow bar to use with this is the Avail part # BX7420 which comes with safety cables. They are coiled which keeps them off the ground as you can wrap them around the arms. For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight...

  • Base Plate Kit and Other Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Winter Edition
    The base plate kit we carry to fit your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Winter Edition is Blue Ox # BX1133. It does bolt to the bumper brackets on your Jeep. I've linked the install details for you. In addition to the base plate kit you'll also need a tow bar, wiring, a supplemental braking system, and likely a high-low adapter. To pair with the Blue Ox base plate kit I recommend the Avail # BX7420 for a tow bar. It has a higher weight capacity than most at 10,000 pounds. Also, the safety...

  • Recommended Base Plates for 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JKU with AEV Bumper
    The Roadmaster Stowmaster Tow Bar # RM-501 is not compatible with any of the Blue Ox or Demco baseplates. That tow bar is only compatible with the Roadmaster EZ, EZ2, EZ4 and XL baseplates. Because your 2013 Jeep JKU has the American Expedition Vehicles Bumper, the only fit is the Blue Ox # BX1133. This will mean changing to the Blue Ox Acclaim Tow Bar - A-Frame - Car Mount - 5,000 lbs # BX4330 for the similar design or upgrading to a receiver mounted tow bar like the Blue Ox Alpha...

It is also compatible with the Ready Brute Elite tow bar when you use the adapter bracket # BX88297. This will work with the integrated Ready Brake system. For your tow bar wiring, I recommend the Hopkins Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles # HM56200 which will plug directly into the factory wiring harness behind your tail lights.

  • Recommendation for Flat Towing a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Backcountry with Call of Duty Bumper
    According to Blue Ox the 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Backcountry Bumper is the same as the Call of Duty Bumper. Which makes the # BX1133 base plate kit a perfect fit. A great tow bar for this base plate kit is the Avail Tow Bar # BX7420. This tow bar will include the safety cables already and provide you with a improved turning radius offers better maneuverability for a safer, smoother ride. Some other items to consider when flat towing are: a Breaking system like # SM99251 a...

I spoke to my contact at Roadmaster and they informed that the 1/2" steel d-rings on your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited bumper are not strong enough for flat towing. The only option I have for you is to use a base plate kit. The only base plate kit we have conformed to fit the Winter Edition is the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit part # BX1133. For a towbar compatible with the base plate,...

  • Base Plates to Flat Tow a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock with AEV Front Bumper
    I checked with AEV and found that you can use the D-ring mounts on that bumper to flat tow the Jeep. If the D-ring mounts are 3/4 inches thick with 7/8 inch or 1 inch diameter holes you can use # RM-035 with a Roadmaster tow bar. If the D-ring mounts are 1 inch thick with 7/8 inch or 1 inch diameter holes you can use # RM-035-1. The tow bar would have to be an RV mount model such as the Falcon 2 # RM-520. The good news is that if the D-ring mounts are compatible with either of the adapters...

  • Can a 2013 Jeep Wrangler with AEV 10305055AB Front Bumper be Flat Towed behind and RV
    There are no base plates confirmed to work with the AEV 10305055AB front bumper. Only one of your pictures made it through so I don't really have the full picture (no pun intended). I looked up the bumper you have and it is very similar to the AEV tubeless front bumper 10305056AC. If both bumpers install the same and have the same dimensions though you could potentially use # BX1133 for base plates. I have linked the install instructions so you can compare them to your bumper.

    I do have an option for you but the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms part # 1444-1 is only a fit for the 10th anniversary edition of the Jeep. I recommend Blue Ox Base Plate Kit part # BX1133 which fits the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with American Expedition tubeless bumper. This is the only base plate that fits this bumper at this time.
