Is a Blue Ox BX1142 Baseplate Kit Compatible w/ a 2016 Jeep Wrangler or What Base Plate Kit Is


My neighbor has an unused BX1142 base plate that she does not want, will it fit my 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited?


Expert Reply:

No, the Blue Ox BX1142 base plate kit would be the correct kit for a 2020-2021 Jeep Gladiator. It would not fit your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

For a baseplate kit that fits your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, you can use the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1126. This fits the standard bumper with no winches or guards. If you have an alternate bumper style, please let me know and I can recommend the correct base plate kit.

I have included a list of the other major parts needed for flat towing your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited below.

Tow Bar: Blue Ox Alpha 2 Non-Binding Tow Bar # BX7380, this tow bar also includes the needed safety cables.
Tow Bar Wiring: Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267
Supplemental Braking System: Blue Ox Patriot Radio Frequency, Portable Braking System # BLU37TR with the 12 Volt Outlet Kit # RM-9332.
