Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Hard Rock Behind a Motor Home  


Will it fit 2015 jeep Wrangler Rubicon with rock hard package and bumper? Also what tow bars fit this? From the least expensive up please.


Expert Reply:

Since your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon has the Hard Rock package you will need to use Blue Ox base plates # BX1134. Model # BX1126 will not fit.

The tow bars that will fit is ascending order of price are:

Adventurer # BX7322 rated for 5,000 pounds (safety cables would need to be added # BX88196)
Acclaim # BX4330 rated for 5,000 pounds and includes safety cables
Alpha # BX7380 rated for 6,500 pounds and includes safety cables
Avail # BX7420 rated for 10,000 pounds and includes safety cables

In addition to the base plates, tow bar, and safety cables you will also need lighting and supplemental braking. For lighting our installers prefer the bulb and socket kit # BX8869.

And finally, most states now require supplemental braking on the vehicle being flat towed. One of the preferred systems for our installers is the SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO proportional system, # SM99251. It will apply the vehicle brakes in proportion to how much the tow vehicle is braking. This is the safest way to stop and it reduces wear and tear on both vehicles.
