Easiest to Use Roadmaster Flat Towing Setup for 2021 Jeep Wrangler  


Getting ready for a new tow setup. We have a 2021 Jeep Wrangler. We are looking at RoadMaster products and considering either a NightHawklittle over kill for capacity or a Falcon. Question which RM base plate for the simplist install and use? Any other recommendations welcome. I plan to complete the installation myself.

The easiest to install and use Roadmaster base plate kit for your 2021 Jeep Wrangler is the Direct Connect kit part # RM-521453-5. The Nighthawk part # RM-676 might be a little overkill in terms of capacity but it really is the nicest and easiest to use so I would recommend it highly. It even has lights built into the arms to increase visibility.

For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your tow vehicle to control the taillight assemblies of the towed vehicle. This comes with a round 6-way connector that you will install on the front of your towed vehicle and enough coiled wire to go from there to the RV.

And finally, most states now require supplemental braking in the vehicle being flat towed. The easiest system to set up and use is the Blue Ox Patriot # BLU37TR, that applies the vehicle brakes in proportion to how much the tow vehicle is braking. This is the safest way to stop and it reduces wear and tear on both vehicles.

Most likely you will also need a high low adapter so that the tow bar will be level when you are flat towing. I attached a link to a page that has all of the ones we carry.

I have included a couple of helpful links to our articles on flat towing for you. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual for more specific information on flat towing your vehicle.
