Using Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar and Need Base Plate Kit for 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee


I have the Alpha tow bar BX7380 and need a baseplate for a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. Which base plate will work and what, if any, adapters would be needed?


Expert Reply:

When using the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar, # BX7380, I recommend going with Base Plates, # BX1115, for your 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. These custom fit base plates provide attachment points for the tow bar and no adapters will be needed.

If you still need lighting for the Jeep, I recommend going with the # RM-2120 light kit if you do not plan to flat tow very often. These lights will fit at the top of the rear hatch and plug straight into the 4 way on the RV so no additional wiring/connections would be needed. If you do plan on frequent towing, I would go with the Tail Light Wiring Kit, # BX8869, instead. This kit does require drilling into the back of the tail light housings to mount the bulbs but it provides more of a permanent lighting set-up.
