Can Blue Ox Base Plate Kit BX1139 for 2019 Jeep Wrangler be Used with Roadmaster Nighthawk  


Can I use this Blue Ox baseplates # BX1139 base plate system on my 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon along with a Roadmaster NightHawk tow bar system?


Expert Reply:

Yes, the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1139 is a confirmed fit for your 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. If you are in need of a tow bar compatible with your Blue Ox base plate, the Roadmaster Nighthawk # RM-677 is an excellent option too that it would work great with since it comes with Blue Ox adapters built in. This is only Nighthawk that would work.

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.
