Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon with a Smittybilt XRC Gen 2 Bumper

Question:

I have a 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon with a Smittybilt XRC Gen 2 Front bumper w/ winch already installed Smittybilt 10k H2O. I am looking to tow behind my Class A Rig. Looking to get everything I need and take to a local installer. I do plan on taking this Jeep off-road and if possible, want to minimize any effect on clearance/approach angles. Attaching a picture of current front end for visual reference. Thanks in advance! ????

I am really sorry about the delay in getting back to you! I sent all of this to our base plate manufacturers and currently they don't have a base plate that will fit your bumper but if you can get me the dimensions of the d-rings on your bumper I can see if one of the D-ring adapters we have will fit. I'd need the thickness or width of them as well as the diameter of the hole.

Perfect! The # BX88357 will work for you as it fits the dimensions of your lug pins.

For a base plate kit then you'd want the part # BX7420 which is very easy to use, is reliable, and comes with safety cables.

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 # BRK2019, 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.
