Average Customer Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars (2 Customer Reviews)This strong and durable base plate kit is custom designed to fit your vehicle. The hidden reinforcements, along with the removable bracket arms, provide a clean, unobtrusive look when your car is not being towed.
The instructions (#23) tell you to align the support bracket 1/4" from the bumper. When we drilled the holes we discovered that a nut could not be installed due too the lack of clearence with the frame rail end. This measurement should be 1/2".
Other than this clearence problem the installation went fine.
Very pleased with the Base Plate.

Self installed. Instructions are clear but if you're going to install yourself - - read read read you will still go back to the instructions again and again. It's a good days job with a helper for a first timer. That said it's a fun project if you take your time. And you'll save a lot of money..
