Blue Ox Base Plate Kit for Flat Towing 2019 Ford F-150 King Ranch


What is the blue ox tow plate part number for a 2019 F150 king ranch?


Expert Reply:

The Blue Ox base plate kit part # BO74FR that you referenced is the correct Blue Ox base plate kit part number for your 2019 Ford F-150 King Ranch. For a tow bar to use with this the Blue Ox Avail part # BX7420 is a really great option. It's very easy to use and also tracks the towed vehicle behind the tow vehicle better than most bars.

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.
