What Do I Need to Flat Tow a 2000 Jeep Wrangler


Will this fit my 2000 Wrangle? Any Instructions for attaching?

You will be able to use this RoadMaster Tracker Tow Bar # RM-020 to flat tow your 2000 Jeep Wrangler, but first you will need a base plate kit. I attached a page that has all of the different base plate kits available for your vehicle that are compatible with the # RM-020. You will need to select which bumper style you have and then you will have the correct base plate kit for your vehicle.

You will also need a Roadmaster Tow Bar Quick Disconnect Kit # RM-201 to make connecting and disconnecting the base plate kit from the tow bar as easy as possible.

You will also need safety cables. I recommend Roadmaster Safety Cables, # RM-643. These are coiled so they will not drag on the ground.

The next component you will need to flat tow the vehicle is lighting. There are actually several lighting methods depending on your needs and how often you will be towing the vehicle. I have included a link to our series of FAQ articles on flat towing, some of which cover choosing the best lighting for your needs.

And finally, most states now require a supplemental braking system on the vehicle being towed. The easiest to install and use is the Roadmaster Even Brake Portable Proportional Braking System, # RM-9400. This unit activates the brakes on the vehicle being towed in proportion to how much the RV is braking. This is the safest type of braking action and it reduces wear and tear on the RV and towed vehicle brakes.

You will also want to check the vehicle owners manual for additional information on flat towing the vehicle. Some vehicles require an axle disconnect, drive line disconnect, transmission lube pump, or free wheeling hubs in order to be flat towed.
