Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2023 Jeep Wrangler w/ a Falcon 5250 Tow Bar  


I have a Falcon 5250 tow bar from my old Wrangler and I now have a 2023 Wrangler that I want to tow with my 5250. Can I use my 5250 with a new Wrangler tow hitch made for my 2023 Wrangler? What do I need to make the 5250 work?


Expert Reply:

Yes, you can! You will want to remove the crossbar by pulling two pins so you can connect to direct-connect style baseplates. I have attached a diagram below that will show you how.

To flat tow your 2023 Jeep Wrangler you will need the following parts:

Base Plate Kit - Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms item # RM-521453-5

Wiring Harness - Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit item # RM-15267

Or if your Jeep has ParkSense Proximity Sensors - Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit Variable Voltage LED Tail Lights item # RM63MR

Charge Line Kit - Roadmaster Battery Charge Line Kit for Towed Vehicles item # RM-156-25

Supplemental Braking System - SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System item # SM99251 or item # SM99243 if your motorhome has air brakes

High Low Adapter - The tow bar needs to be within 3" of level. If you measure the height of the inside top of the hitch receiver tube on your RV, and the height difference is more than 3 inches above/below the base plate tab height, you'll need a high/low adapter. I have linked a FAQ article that explains all this in more detail along with our selection of adapters.
