Difference Between Curt & Blue Ox Base Plate For 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Question:

Since they use the same tow bars it sounds like, what are the differences between the Curt and Blue Ox base plates on a 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited?

Expert Reply:

The only difference between the base plates for your 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is that one, the Blue Ox, has mounting tabs for a connector plug, while the Curt does not:

- Connector Plug Mounting Tabs: Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # BX1139

- No Mounting Tabs: Curt Custom Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # C68FR

I have added a photo below showing the mounting tabs of the Blue Ox base plate so you can see exactly what I am referring to. Apart from that though, the two base plate kits are the same, with the same install and removable arms to help your '21 Wrangler Unlimited keep a clean look.

Along with these base plates, you can complete your '21 Wrangler Unlimited's flat towing set up with the following parts:

- Curt Rambler Steel Tow Bar for Curt and Blue Ox Base Plates # C26FR
- Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267
- Demco Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System w/ Wireless Coachlink Monitor # DM86VR
