Tow Bar Recommendation for Towing 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with Roadmaster Base Plate


I am looking for a complete tow bar set up that works with my Fab Four bumper. I have the one inch shackle mounts on the bumper.... I found the Road Master base plates that work with my bumper mounts - What is your recommendation for a tow bar that works well with the road master base plates.


Expert Reply:

If you have a Roadmaster base plate kit that fits your Fab Fours bumper on your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited you can use the Roadmaster Falcon Tow Bar part # RM-520 and you'd be set.

In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The most popular compatible tow bar is the Falcon 2, # RM-520. For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground.

For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your tow vehicle to control the taillight assemblies of the towed vehicle. This comes with a round 6-way connector that you will install on the front of your towed vehicle and enough coiled wire to go from there to the RV.

And finally, most states now require supplemental braking in the vehicle being flat towed. The easiest system to set up and use is the Blue Ox Patriot # BLU37TR, that applies 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.

Most likely you will also need a high low adapter so that the tow bar will be level when you are flat towing. I attached a link to a page that has all of the ones we carry.

I have included a couple of helpful links to our articles on flat towing for you. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual for more specific information on flat towing your vehicle.
