Will Base Plate Kit from 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Fit 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited


Right now I have a 2015 jeep wrangler unlimited and I purchased a base plate from ETrailer back in 2015. I am looking at purchasing a 2020 jeep wrangler unlimited and want to know if my base plate will work on that year model. If you need more information please let me know, thank you

Sounds like you've gotten some good use out of the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1126 for your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited! Jeep actually had a generation swap mid-year for 2018 models so your 2020 Wrangler Unlimited will use a different base plate kit which I've listed out for you below:

Standard Factory Bumper - # BX1139
Off-Road Bumper with 1" D-Ring Mounts with a 1 inch pin diameter - # BX88358
Off-Road Bumper with 1" D-Ring Mounts with a 7/8 inch pin diameter - # BX88357

If you have something different please let me know. It's also worth noting that for a complete flat towing setup you will need a base plate kit, tow bar, safety cables, vehicle tow bar wiring, a supplemental braking system, and possibly a high-low adapter. Since you've been flat towing I'd imagine that you already have all of these, but if something needs to be replaced just let me know and I can make some additional recommendations for you.

Attached is an installation video of the standard kit being installed on a 2020 Unlimited that you can check out.
