2004 Dodge Ram Pickup - Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit - Fixed Arms

  • Fixed Drawbars
  • Roadmaster

Designed specifically for heavy-duty applications, direct-connect brackets install onto your Dodge Ram Pickup's frame to provide fixed attachment points for a motor-home-mounted tow bar.


Features:

  • Fixed-bar design - front arms cannot be removed
  • Computer-cut, all-steel construction provides exceptional strength
  • Black powder coat finish is durable and corrosion resistant
  • Simple installation - no welding
    • Custom base plates ensure a perfect fit for your vehicle
  • No crossbar needed - faster hookup and sleeker appearance
    • Crossbar not required because direct-connect base plates are designed for strong, heavy-duty applications
  • Compatible with all Roadmaster tow bars that slide into trailer hitch receivers
  • Instructions and mounting hardware included
  • Made in the USA
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty


Note: Direct-connect base plates will work only with the Roadmaster tow bars that slide into a trailer hitch, such as the Sterling, Blackhawk, Blackhawk 2, Falcon and Falcon 2. These plates will not work with tow bars that require a hitch ball.


Direct-connect brackets do not require a crossbar because of the heavy-duty nature of your vehicle's frame. Thus, installation is simplified, the hookup process is faster, and the total appearance is enhanced.


Note: The EZ Hook safety cables included with Roadmaster's Sterling tow bars will not work with these base plates. These cables connect to an anchor plate on the Quick Disconnect crossbar, which will not be present when you are using direct-connect base plates.

Easy fit if you have the correct bumper. I have the Rugged Ridge.

Received these and they were well packaged and no damage even to the paint. Appears to be well made. I am impressed with the construction of these. Appear to be well engineered. Fit my Roadmaster tow arms perfectly.

I have towed my Jeep over 3000 miles and have had no problems. Easy hook up and unhook.

Everything went well till I got to lining up the threaded plates inside the frame rails with the wire attached and one of the wires broke off before l got the bolt started other than that instructions were very good

See what our Experts say about this Roadmaster Base Plates

  • Will Roadmaster Base Plate Kit # 264-1a fit a 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 with Missing Factory Tow Hooks
    Since your 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 came from the factory with tow hooks the Roadmaster MS Base Plate Kit # 264-1A that you referenced would work for you. This kit utilizes the factory tow hook installation points as installation points for the base plate kit and even if you had the tow hooks still you would not be able to reinstall them once the # 264-1a was installed.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 Behind an RV Using Roadmaster Tow Bar
    For your 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 you can use Roadmaster base plates # 260-1. They are compatible with all Roadmaster tow bars. If you do not already have safety cables you can use # RM-653 to match the tow bar capacity. For lighting a popular option for Ram owners is diode kit # RM-15267. Once installed you won't have to mess with it again. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. You may also need a high/low adapter to keep the tow bar level. I have linked a help article...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 Hemi Behind an RV
    We do have Roadmaster base plates for the 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 but # 264-1A will not fit. If your Truck is NOT an SRT-10 you can use XL base plates # 260-1. These base plates will fit with or without tow hooks. Roadmaster recommends professional installation but if you look at the instructions I have linked for the 260-1 base plates you can make that determination. For a compatible tow bar I recommend the Falcon All-Terrain # RM-522. This is a non-binding tow bar rated for 6,000 pounds....
