  • Removable Drawbars
  • Roadmaster
  • Hitch Pin Attachment

The crossbar-style hidden brackets attach to your vehicle's frame to provide attachment points for your tow bar. The visible portions of the brackets can be removed when you are not towing.


Features:

  • Hidden bracket design - drawbars are easily removable via 2 pins
    • Improved aesthetics compared with standard brackets
  • Computer-cut, all-steel construction provides exceptional strength
  • Black powder coat finish is durable and corrosion resistant
  • Simple installation - no welding required

The square drawbars, or front arms, on the crossbar-style base plate kit are simple to mount and remove, easily securing with hitch pins.

2008 Jeep Wrangler

Recently, we decided to setup our 2008 Wrangler JK to be towed behind the motorhome. All I needed were base plates because we had a previous tow car. After doing a search for parts, I decided on etrailer.com to be the source. The product search was easy and the descriptions along with the large photos helped me determine my mechanical skills were enough to install the plates. The order process was quick and easy and the tracking info was helpful. A three day delivery delay occurred due to a snow storm in the mid-west. Once the parts arrived, I installed the parts in about four hours. The instructions were easy to follow, the pictures helped determine the procedure for installing, and everything fit as expected. I could not be more pleased with the base plates and etrailer.com. Thanks very much!

All of the parts work perfectly. They make connecting the Jeep easy and we are very happy. Thanks very much!

I ordered these brackets to tow my Jeep Wrangler behind my motorhome. Having used this brand before I knew the quality I would get and was not disappointed. The original order had 2 left side brackets and no right side brackets so after a call to customer support the correct part was sent. They even gave me a follow-up call to make sure I was taken care of. Mistakes happen but how a company responds to those mistakes is what really matters. These are people you can count on. I am a customer for life.

I bought these base plates from eTrailer for my 2008 Jeep Wranger. They bolt right right on the Jeep with the included hardware and work great. I have been using my Stowmaster Tow Bar for over 20 years and have never had an issue with it or the many different base plates I have purchase for my vehicles in that time. I highly recommend Roadmaster base plates and the Stowmaster tow bar.




by:

Always great dealing with etrailer, their customer service is excellent. They give great suggestions and guidance on the right products for your needs. They are a fantastic resource...saving you both time and money.

The Roadmaster cross-bar base plate kit works great, was at a fair price and shipped quickly. We have had it a year now with no problems. Works as advertised and is the right towing solution for our motorhome.

2007 Jeep Wrangler

It was a great fit to my 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. I struggled with some crusty bolt on the Jeep but no issues with the base plates. I might suggest to Roadmaster that the installation would have been easier if they had included 4 of the threaded backing plates instead of the two they provided. Some of those bolts were in some pretty tight confines.

Purchased base plates for my Wrangler on line and was very impressed with the service from etrailer. product was delivered a few days earlier than expected and exactly what was ordered. Installation was implemented according to the instructions provided with no surprises.

Brkt fit perfect and after 9000 miles of towing is still just like the day I installed it. I also used the custom brkt under the seat to mount my air brake piston to activate the the brakes in the jeep while towing..thanks




by:

The brackets fit perfectly and were pretty easy to install. The nuts with the wires were tricky to get in place but overall I am happy with the product and the way they work.




by:

Great customer service. I was sent an email with tracking number, and also a video attached on how to install the item. I will be ordering more from etrailer.




by:

No problems with installation. One thing that could be changed is that the outer bolts should be the same as the iner [ with a threaded plate}

Review from a similar XL in Base Plates


Base plate 1910 install on 1999 Landrover disco 2

the base plate arrived fast (as does everything I have ordered from etrailer). It was a bit bent on arrival but Becky sorted me out and offered to replace it but it was easy to bend back (with a 3lb hammer).

The included instructions were great for removing the bumper but nor much else. Possibly because my Landy is a 1999 disco 2 and the pictures were of a 2002.

I have included some pictures of stuff I wish I had known. Firstly I had to loose the recovery loop on the driver side as the base plate would not fit over it. The chassis frame has steel tubes inside the bolt holes so the amount of drilling is minimal (I ordered a drill bit that they suggested but in all honesty could have opened up the holes with a file easily).

You need to oval out the aluminum crush cans before you replce them or the new bolts will not go through. The center mount bolt just needs the plastic mount for the center screw on the scoop cut out and there is a bog square hole on the top of the member (thats why you need to big square piece of steel on the top of the center bolt)

Mine was obscured by the torsion bar so I ended up dropping it to drill out the hole and get the bolt in straight.

It was easy to bolt up to the frame once everything was prepped and do yourself a favour and buy loctite red for the bolts - you don't want to be going in there again.

The bumper template was a good start but I had to reshape mine a lot particularly as the hole on the baseplate ended up halfway through the bumper and I had to do a lot of enlargement at the bottom to attach the safety wires.

The photos should make more sense of some of my description

Very rugged kit with excellent instructions. A DIYer with medium mechanical skills can install. Involved removing the front bumper which was not difficult. Value for the price is very good. As always, etrailer support was also very good.

  • Can I Get Replacement Draw bars for My 2007 Jeep Wrangler
    If you do not have the complete base plate kit and are referring to the drawbars from the base plate kit that are removable and attach to your tow bar then you will need to purchase a new base plate kit. The manufacturer will not sell the drawbars separately because the draw bars are custom fitted for each base plate kit and the possibility of the base plate kit parts already on the vehicle being damaged. The custom base plate kit for your 2007 Jeep wrangler would be one of four kits...

  • Can a Front Mount Hitch Be Used with Base Plates on a 2007 Jeep Wrangler
    The best solution for your situation would be to remove the base plates and install a front mount hitch like the Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch, # 65069. On your 2007 Jeep Wrangler, the base plates and the front mount hitches use the same mounting location, so they cannot be installed together. Also, base plates were not designed to take any vertical weight like the tongue weight of a trailer, so I would not advise making some type of custom receiver to work with the base plates. Some bumper...
