How to Install the RoadMaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited


Ryan: Hey everybody, Ryan here at etrailer.com. Today on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, we're going to be taking a look at the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar. Tow bar is going to be one of five major components needed to flat tow your Jeep down the road, and there's going to be four more. One being a base plate. Now, in our particular case, since our Jeep has a aftermarket bumper with D-Rings, we're actually able to just use adapters on the end of our tow bar, and the bumper itself acts as a base plate. That base plate is going to provide us with a reliable connection point to hook the tow bar to.

In turn, that's how a bar goes to the back of a motor home. Another component that we're going to need is Tow Bar Wiring, like this here today. This is actually diode wiring, and this is going to transfer the lighting signals from the back of your motor home to the back of your Jeep.So you'll be safe and legal. The other component will be a Braking System. Now that Braking System is going to apply the brake inside of the Jeep, whenever you're stopping in the motor home, bringing you to a safe and predictable stop.

Last major component is our Safety Cables. Now, that's going to be a secondary connection just in case we do have a catastrophic disconnect. The Safety Cables are going to keep the Jeep connected to the motor home. Now, when it comes to the Falcon 2 Tow Bar, it's going to have both pros and cons. Some of the pros being that it's really simple to use, there's nothing really too complex about it.

It's going to be really heavy duty, and it's going to be built to last. That way we know it's going to be reliable. We're not going to have any major issues with it in the future. Now because of the tow bar's heavy duty design, it is going to weigh a little bit more, and that can be a little bit challenging to sometimes get installed, and especially if you're alone.Another thing that I do want to point out, whenever you're using this tow bar, say, if you happen to get to your destination or your campsite, and the ground is a little uneven or unlevel, what can sometimes happen is the tow bar can get into a bind. So, whenever you go to disconnect it, the arms will be in the lock position and can be really difficult.

Now the way to make life a little bit easier is to pick up a tool that we sell here at etrailer.com, that will get this out of a bind. And the way that works is, the tool simply just wraps right around here. It's really easy to use, and will push down on the tool. And it'll actually keep pressing these buttons here on top of the tow bar arms. And when those are pushed down, it'll unlock the arms and give you some wiggle room to get everything disconnected.The tow bar is going to have a 6,000 pound weight capacity. So that's going to give you quite a bit of versatility on what vehicles you can tow with it. It's also going to have a Black Powder Coat Finish, which not only looks good, but it's going to help prevent any rust or corrosion too. Now, if you're looking for a tow bar that has a few more bells and whistles, that's a little more lightweight and it doesn't get into a bind, I'd recommend the Roadmaster Nighthawk.The Nighthawk's going to have some levers here that eliminate the need for a separate tool to get your tow bar out of a bind, if that ever happens. And since it is a little more lightweight, it's going to be easier to install, especially by yourself. And one thing that is pretty nice about this tow bar is whenever we're not using it and we want to leave it connected to our motor home, can actually put this in a stored position. So once you have disconnected, what you can do is just fold the arms together, and push it up. The head of the bolt will pass through this lever. And you can just fold it down to one side and let it hang out like this until you're ready to flat tow again. Now, if you plan on keeping it in this position for a while, I would recommend picking up a tow bar cover, and that'll just help protect it from the elements. And that'll finish up our look at, of the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar, on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.
