Roadmaster EZ Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms - 2013 Ram 1500

Roadmaster's EZ Twistlock series brackets are virtually invisible, easy to mount and simple to remove. Brackets install on your Ram 1500's frame to provide attachment points for your tow bar.

Features:

  • Hidden bracket design provides improved aesthetics compared with standard brackets
  • Drawbars are easily removable - just twist and pull
    • No pins or clips required
  • Computer-cut, all-steel construction provides exceptional strength
  • Black powder coat finish is durable and corrosion resistant
  • Simple installation - no welding required
    • Custom base plates ensure a perfect fit for your Ram 1500
  • Compatible with Quick Disconnects and all Roadmaster tow bars
  • Instructions and mounting hardware included
  • Made in the USA


The drawbars, or front arms, on the EZ series base plate kit are supremely easy to mount and remove. Just insert them into the brackets and twist to lock them in place. To remove, simply twist the arms back and pull them out. Once the drawbars have been removed, the remaining brackets are virtually invisible. On most automobiles, the brackets are mounted within the grille, where they remain not only unseen, but protected from scrapes and scuffs as well.

Review from a similar Roadmaster EZ Base Plate Kit


I installed this base plate system on my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited this weekend. My Jeep had tow hooks which were basically removed and replaced by the base plates in the same location. No modifications to the grill were required and the base plates are no more noticable than the tow hooks were. Installation was straight forward. Roadmaster forwarded a PDF file of the excellent color instructions with my order confirmation. I was able to view the photographs on my ipad and zoom in where necessary to get more detail. Overall I would rate the Roadmaster product, instructions and customer service 5 star in every way. 78276

Did you have to do any drilling on your vehicle to mount this system?

comment by: John B - 09/19/2013

Yes, there will be some drilling involved in the installation. Check the instructions link on the product page for more information about the drilling that will be required. I believe it will just be four 1/2 inch holes.

The Roadmaster baseplate and Falcon tow bar are working great with our 2014 Grand Cherokee and Endeavor motorhome. We are in the middle of a 1500 mile trip and have had no problems with the equipment. I have decided that I need to purchase a braking system for the Jeep. Thinking about the Invisi Brake, primarily because it is made by Roadmaster and I had a great experience with your companys customer service when the 2014 Grand Cherokee baseplate kit was being developed. Thanks for the good work.

Thanks for the follow up, very happy to hear that you are pleased with your Roadmaster Base plates. If you are considering the Invisibrake # RM-8700
Roadmaster Even Brake Portable Proportional Braking System
$1,249.00
as a braking system this is a great choice. The installation is a long and involved process and if you are looking for a more simplified installation you might like another Roadmaster product such as the Even Brake # RM-9400
Roadmaster Even Brake Portable Proportional Braking System
$1,249.00
. This will serve the same purpose as the Invisibrake, but the portable unit will have to be removed after flat towing your Jeep where the Invisibrake is permanently installed in your tow Jeep.

Review from a similar Roadmaster EZ Base Plate Kit


Very happy with this product. Installation was pretty easy. I see no reason to pay someone to install this. True you have to take the bumper off and a large metal support beam but it was pretty easy. You just have to take it slow and not get frustrated. The bumper on the Honda Fit is held on with a gazillion little plastic clips and snap joints. Everything fits tight on a Honda so you have to be patient. My only complaint is they don't give you the exact torque settings. I had to consult a shop manual to get the correct torque values. They give a table at the end of the instructions that gives common torque values for various bolt sizes. I thought that was lame they could have given the correct value from the shop manual. Certainly not enough to lower my rating. This bar is awesome and when the drawbars are removed the base plate is almost completely hidden. My wife wanted nothing to show on the front of the car. She was very pleased with it. In the picture attached the bar is almost completely hidden. All you see are two small black circles. It takes about 2 seconds to mount the drawbars, just twist and go. VERY sturdy. I tow my Honda behind the motorhome with confidence. 80709

Doug, just purchased a 2014 Cadillac srx 4 looking for base plates which you have. Now I have a roadmaster falcon tow bar that I tow my jeep wrangler with, will I have to change anything besides the new base plates to tow the SRX ???

comment by: Henry R - 06/05/2014

I have checked with our contacts at Roadmaster and in addition to the EZ Base Plate kit that is confirmed as a fit for your 2014 Cadillac SRX, you will need a set of the Quick disconnect plates # RM-222
Roadmaster Tow Bar Quick Disconnects - Car Side Only
$37.95
to connect with your Falcon Tow Bar. These will mount to your Cadillac base plate and will connect to your Falcon Tow Bar crossbar. These quick disconnects will allow you to easily change from towing your Jeep to your Cadillac. In addition to your tow bar and base plates, please make sure that you have all the necessary components needed for a complete flat towing system for your Cadillac like: safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. Depending on how you have things set up for your Jeep you maybe able to transfer all of these components to your Cadillac.

Review from a similar Roadmaster EZ Base Plate Kit


Sequence of events can aid in easier installation. 1. Problem: I found threading the bolts into the weld nuts that are located on the bars that slide into the frame was very difficult. Solution: I took off the baseplate and chased the threads with a 1/2 - 13 tap to clear out the powder coat paint and the bolt easily threaded in by hand. 2. Problem: When I tried to get the base plate bolted on, I did the front facing bolts first then tried to align the slide in 3/4" bolts next. I couldn't get them in. I read a review where someone had to grind the frame to get the slide bolts to align. There had to be a better way without modification. Solution: When the front cowell has been removed and the baseplate is hand held in position on the FIT, thread the 3/4" head bolts into the slide in brackets BEFORE putting the 12 mm bolts into the brackets that face forward. In my case the bolts went in without any difficulty. If you follow my suggestion you too can avoid grinding. 34374

It has been working perfectly on the 2012 jeep liberty. In fact, the baseplate I used on my previous vehicle jeep grand cherokee was more difficult to connect and disconnect than this new style push in and rotate to lock into place. For whatever reasons this new style baseplate is faster connect and faster disconnect than the previous style.

The installation on this was surprisingly quick on my 2011 Fit (base/non-sport version). Everything fit well (no pun intended). A few minor changes over the video as my car was slightly different: - I didn't have to trim anything on the air dam -- the tubes lined up perfectly with the slots on my grill. - There was a in the wheel on each side where the plastic bumper meets the steel body panel. I didn't realize they were there (they're hidden somewhat) so I ended up cracking the hole this screw was in, but everything came back together nice and tight anyway. 48006

Base plate was delivered on time and in good condition. Directions were very clear and fairly easy to install. My son helped me.Its easier with 2people. The light kit was also easy. We ran the 4 flat wire through the firewall driver side .We found a rubber gromet near the top and popped out. We ran the wire under the plastic trimon bottom of door all the way to compartment for jack to tailight assembly. We drilled hole in bottom circle of light to accept light and then under rear bumper and up other side to right assembly.Wired according to instructions. They work great. I like the ease of taking the hitch off when not in use. Thank you for everything. 134468

Review from a similar Roadmaster EZ Base Plate Kit


This is my second Roadmaster baseplate to install on a Honda CRV. The first, a 2009 used the XL and this 2013 uses an EZ. Installation was as described in the, well illustrated directions. It took me about 3 hours. New cars with soft plastic parts might be better than older models with brittle plastic. Once installed I felt the XL baseplate on the old car was easier to use because I could slide the tow unit on in one piece. With the EZ, I have to separate the bar from the arms, twist each arm in, and then place the bar across. This adds complexity to assembly and disassembly. 89460

All the necessary parts were included in the kit along with a couple of spare nuts, washers, etc. Great experience. Product works as advertised. 104537

The installation when well. The only issues are: 1. The directions do not tell you how to unbolt the front fascia from the fenders (drivers/passengers) side. It required unbolting 2 bolts on each fender. 2. Need to put a note in the instructions to have a step drill bit for the front bumper core. This metal was very hard and I used up 12 drill bit before I went to the store to get one for hardened metal. Other than that the items went together very well and have already tested the tow bar. 101083

Base Plate went in without any problem. The on-line video helped tremendously especially when removing the plastic bumper. A little more information could have been prided on disconnecting the fog lights on the Sports model of the Honda Fit. But I was able to take out a few more screws and get access to the plugs. The base plate is barely visible and I love the twist and lock feature on the base plate. Much better than the old pins and clevis on older base plates. 121119

Great Product-hard to install Installation took about 4-6 Hrs. The most difficult part was drilling the 4 half inch holes in the bumper. The sq. tube that forms the internal bumper is made of a vary hard steel (spring steel??) I went thru 3 or 4 drills. they should have recommended drill types in the instructions. I found that carbide tipped drills worked the best. When using this type, do not run the drill at high speed and use some oil on the drill bit. 3479

The installation went well and everything fit as best as you could expect on a unibody vehicle. I only found one issue with my Terrian SLT, on step 7 it states there are 4 bolts on the bumper and mine only had three. Not an issue until you install reciever brace on step 8 and find out the 4th hole in step 7 that didn't have a bolt in it is not threaded. The bolts that you took out in step 7 are self threading. So I used one of them and it worked out great. 7230

Not an easy task of course. I've done a 2006 Liberty once before, so I was somewhat familiar with the installation. The directions were great and installation went well. Only the finder flare rivets were a problem because I did not have a plastic rivet tool and there were none available near here. I had to use vise grips, a pair of pliers with a small grip hole at the end and a foot. Gotter done, Thanks for the prompt delivery. Dan 46740
