Blue Ox Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Behind Motorhome

Question:

I just got a 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and I need the parts to flat tow it behind my RV. I already have a blue ox tow bar 7365 so I'd like to stick with that brand base plate.

We have just what you need to flat tow your 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with your Blue Ox tow bar part # BX7420. For a base plate kit you'd want the pat # BX1139 for if you have a factory plastic or steel bumper, or part # BX88357 if you had an off-road bumper with 1 inch d-rings, or a Smittybilt Atlas bumper.

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.
