Flat Tow Set-Up For A 2005 Jeep Wrangler X


What equipment would I need to flat tow my 2005 JEEP Wrangler X.


Expert Reply:

For your 2005 Jeep Wrangler, you're going to need a couple components to flat tow.

First, you'll need a baseplate. If you have a factory bumper, I recommend the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Baseplate Kit # RM-521424-5. This baseplate kit will keep a clean look when installed, and includes all installation hardware.

Next, you'll need a set of tow bars. We have the Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar # RM-522. These tow bars will fit your base plate kit, and are capable of handling up to 6,000lbs which should be more than enough to handle your 2005 Jeep Wrangler X.

Following the tow bars, you'll need a braking system. A great, lightweight, and easy to set-up option, is the Roadmaster Even Brake # RM-9400. This system is also portable, which will allow you to transfer this unit to other vehicles.

Finally, you'll need some wiring # RM-152-98146-7 which will allow your toad vehicle and your motorhome to communicate with each other on the road, and you'll need a high-low adapter # RM-048-4. A high low adapter is needed because your motorhome is more than likely much taller than the toad vehicle, and your tow bars have to be within 3" up or down for correct use a high-low adapter takes care of that issue.
