Converting Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit 1439-1 to Direct-Connect Setup


Hello, I have the 1439-1 base plate installed on my 2013 wrangler. I use a tow bar adapter that also has a cross bar which seems redundant since the 1439-1 has a crossbar. Is there an adapter that bolts to the 1439-1 square drawbars front arms that would allow my falcon tow bar to connect directly to the front arms? Thanks you,

There is a way to convert your existing Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit # 1439-1 so that it can connect directly to your Falcon Tow Bar, it's not by way of a traditional adapter. What you will need to do is actually obtain replacement arms from the Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # 1439-3 (which also fits your Jeep Wrangler).

The arms by themselves can be ordered using our part # RM-ARMS. There is a form that needs to be filled out (which is attached to the product page) where you will write in the part number information of the full kit (1439-3). You would just swap out the existing removable drawbars on your base plate kit with these arms and you will be able to hook right up to the Roadmaster via a direct connection.

I verified with my contact at Roadmaster that this is the only way to do this.
