Helpful Expert Reply:

You can quickly tell the difference between the All Terrain and the Standard StowMaster tow bar.

If you have square bars and it has push buttons, you have the standard StowMaster. If your tow bar has round bars it is the all-terrain. There will be no difference in the performance of the tow bars. The all-terrain is easier to put on and remove.

If you need the balance of the items needed for flat-towing your Rubicon I can make some recommendations that will work for you. You need a total of 5 items when flat-towing vehicles. You need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, tow bar wiring for the towed vehicle, and finally most states now require a supplemental brake system.

If you do not have aftermarket bumpers, winches, or guards I recommend the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit, part # RM-521448-5.

For safety cables I recommend part # RM-643.

For tow bar tail light wiring I recommend part # HM56200.

For a supplemental brake system I recommend the Stay-IN-Play DUO # SM99251. It's easy to use because once it's installed you don't need to set it up each time you're going to tow the Jeep.

I spoke with my contact at Roadmaster and they verified that the base plates that will work with your Warn Elite front bumper with a winch installed is part # 1439-1. These base plates are specifically designed to work with the system you have on your Rubicon.
