First you will need to start with a base plate kit, the Demco base plate kit # DM9519328 would be an excellent choice.

Next, you will need a tow bar. For that I would go with the Demco Commander # DM9511012. It pairs right up with the Demco plates, includes safety cables, and has independent arms to make hooking up easier.

For tow bar wiring I would recommend the Hopkins Kit part # HM56304. This will plug in line with your taillights and allow the tow vehicle to activate the turn signals and brake lights. I attached an install video for you to check out.

And finally, most states now require supplemental braking in the vehicle being flat towed. The easiest system to set up and use is the Even Brake proportional system, # RM-9400, 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.

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.
