Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2023 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited  


Hello, I recently bought a roadmaster nighthawk 8000 lbs capacity and I have a 2023 jeep wrangler unlimited sport. I wanted to ask for a recommendation on base plates and the break away switch wiring. Thank you.

For your 2023 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport the base plate kit you'd want is the Roadmaster Direct Connect part # RM-521453-5 which is compatible with your Roadmaster Nighthawk # RM-676.

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.
