Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2021 Jeep Wrangler w/ Factory Plastic Bumper  


Can you tell me what parts I need to pull my 2021 Jeep Wrangler behind my motor home? It still has the factory plastic bumper on it.


Expert Reply:

You will need at least 5 parts to flat tow your 2021 Jeep Wrangler with factory plastic bumper behind your motor home. Those 5 parts are the base plate kit, tow bar, tow bar wiring, safety chains and braking system. I have included a recommendation for each part and what they do below.

Base Plate Kit: This is going to be custom fit for your vehicle and provides the attachment point for the tow bar. I recommend the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1139 which is made in the USA and has removable arms, allowing for a cleaner look when you aren't flat towing.

Tow Bar: This is what attaches to the motor home and then connects to the vehicle to flat tow. I recommend the Blue Ox Avail Non-Binding Tow Bar # BX7420. This is made in the USA and is compatible with the above mentioned base plate kit. This tow bar also includes the safety chains, so you will not need to get them separately.

Tow Bar Wiring: This is going to be what allows you to use your Jeep Wrangler Unlimited's tail lights and wiring system while preventing feedback from your RV. I recommend the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267 which is made in the USA and has a limited lifetime warranty.

Supplemental Braking System: This is going to be what allows you to travel with and safely stop your Wrangler. I recommend the Demco SBS Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System # SM99251. This is made in the USA and gives you proportional braking with a system that never has to be removed, replaced, or reset.

You may also need a high-low adapter. I have included a help article that goes over how to determine if you need an adapter and which one is needed if you do. I have also linked our selection of high-low adapters so that you can select the correct one if it is determined that you need one.
