Base Plate and Flat Towing Components Confirmed To Fit 2020 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon With Steel Bumper


Can the etrailer invisible base plate kit be installed on a Jeep Wrangler rubicon 2020 with a factory metal bumper?


Expert Reply:

I recommend the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM-521453-5 for your 2020 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon with the factory steel bumper. This is confirmed to fit with your front bumper unlike the etrailer Invisible Base Plate Kit # e98948 that only fits Wranglers that have the factory plastic bumper.

The Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar w/ LED Lights # RM-676 are great lightweight tow bars. These come with a limited lifetime warranty and are proudly made in the USA. Pair this with the RoadMaster Nighthawk All Terrain Towing Combo Kit # RM-9284-2 and you will have all the electrical components you need to wire in your tail lights on your Jeep. Depending on the height of your receiver you may need a High-Low Adapter like the # RM-048-4 to keep the bars within 3" of level. If you have the 245/75R17 tires at factory ride height the tow bar connection points are going to sit at 16-1/4" from the ground. Compare this to the height of the receiver on your tow vehicle to determine if an adapter is needed.

I recommend the Demco SBS Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System # SM99251 for your Jeep. This braking system is installed on your Jeep so when you need to flat tow all you have to do is flip a switch in the Jeep. A Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751490 is needed since your Jeep does not use a traditional brake switch. A Battery Charge Line Kit # RM-156-25 will ensure that your battery does not get drained by the braking system.
