Tow Bar Recommendation for 2023 Jeep Wrangler with Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit  


Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms Item # RM-521453-5 I recently purchased and installed the RM-521453-5 on my 2023 Jeep Wrangler 2-Door. I am now ready to purchase a tow bar and want a non-binding unit, cables included. I am considering the Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain RM-576 as it appears to meet my requirements and is lighter than comparable units. Any reason that it is not a good fit for my situation or other recommendations that may be a better fit? Thanks

Thank you for your purchase of the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM-521453-5 for your 2023 Jeep Wrangler!

The Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar # RM-576 is a great option for your setup and it comes with the safety cables and wiring that pairs with the Blue Ox Tow Bar Wiring Kit # BLU79FR so everything will be right there and simple to connect. You'll just cut the 4-Way off of your Blue Ox wiring and splice it into the 6-Way socket that comes with the tow bar.

Aside from all of this I recommend picking up the Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System # RM-8700 which installs with the Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751490 so the brakes on your Wrangler are activated with the brakes on your motorhome.

One last thing you might need is a high-low adapter. Once the base plate kit has been installed on a standard-height Wrangler they will be about 16-1/4" above the ground. You can use the linked article to determine if you need an adapter, and what kind of rise/drop you might need as well.

Attached are some review and installation videos for you to check out!
