Which Tow Bar is Compatible with Roadmaster EZ-5 Base Plates for 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited


Base play kit 521450-5,what tow bar doi need


Expert Reply:

The Roadmaster part you've referenced with part number 521450-5 is no longer available, but it was an EZ-5 base plate so I recommend using the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar w/ LED Lights - RV Mount - 8K # RM-676, which comes with safety cables integrated into the setup. This would be compatible with the discontinued 521450-5 base plate you've mentioned or the current model, which is the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # RM-521453-5.

If you also need other parts to complete your flat towing setup like tow bar wiring, supplemental braking or a high/low adapter, I've linked our recommended parts for your 2020 Jeep Wrangler JLU below.

Wiring solution: Demco Universal Diode Wiring Kit # DM9523010-54
Supplemental Braking: Demco SBS Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System - Proportional # SM99251
Additional parts needed: Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751490 and Charge Line Kit # RM-156-25 plus # RM-156-75 (if RV does not have charge line)
High/Low Adapter: similar to # RM-070 (see attached article on how to properly measure to determine rise/drop needed)

I've linked some installation and product review videos to this answer, in addition to the FAQ article on high/low adapters.
