How to Install the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit on a 2019 Jeep Cherokee


Today, our 2019 Jeep Cherokee. We're going to be taking a look at the Roadmaster EZ5 baseplate kit with removable arms as part of flat tow setup. Here we have the five main components for flat tow setup. We have our baseplate, our tow bar, our safety cables, our wiring, and our braking system. Our base plate's going to give us a solid connection point on the front of our Jeep Cherokee to safety flat tow. It's going to work with all quick disconnects, and Roadmaster tow bars.

We're going to have removable arms to help your vehicle maintain a nice clean look. We're going to have safety chain loops here. It's going to attach to the vehicle's chassis, and have a nice black powder coat finish that's going to resist any rust or corrosion.If you're installing your baseplate yourself, you fascia's going to have to be removed. There's a panel here on top that's going to have some fasteners. You're going to have to take some fasteners off in your wheel wells, and some fasteners across the bottom.

A little tech tip. When removing your fascia, if you have fog lights, there's a large plug right on this driver side that's going to have to come off. Keep in mind once you unplug that you can not start your vehicle. If you start the vehicle, it could cause the check engine light to come one. Once you remove your fascia, you're going to have to remove your bummer beam, and two aluminum brackets down below.

Then we can install our baseplate and our back brackets onto our frame rail. Then you can reinstall your bummer beam. The lower brackets are not going to be reinstalled.If you're installing any additional components like your braking system or your diode wiring kit, you want to do that prior to putting your fascia back in place. All do for a look at the Roadmaster EZ5 baseplate kit with removable arms as part of our flat tow setup on our 2019 Jeep Cherokee.
