Roadmaster 12 Volt Outlet Kit Installation - 2016 Jeep Wrangler

Today on our 2016 Jeep Wrangler, we're going to show you how to install the Roadmaster 20 amp 12 volt outlet kit. The part number is RM-9332. Now we can use a type of 12 volt accessory. In this case, we're just going to use a USB charger. Slide that in, and we want to see that green light come on. That's going to indicate that we've got power.



Hopkins Tail Light Wiring Kit Installation - 2016 Jeep Wrangler

Today on our 2016 Jeep Wrangler, we're going to show you how to install the Hopkins Custom Taillight Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles, part number HM56200. What this is going to allow us to do is hook up our motor home, and it's going to operate the lights on the vehicle just as if we we're sitting inside the car turning the signals on. It does that with the diode converter here, so this box has built-in diodes. This is going to prevent any back feed into the electrical system of the towed vehicle, and the diodes are going to convert whatever signal it's getting from our taillights into a usable signal. That diode converter is going to take the signal coming in from the motor home, it's going to translate it into signals that the vehicle can use to operate its taillights. Great thing about it is when it's not connected to your motor home, there's going to be absolutely no interference. Now to begin our installation, we need to remove the driver's side taillight.

This is part number SA999TB. This spare tire rack is going to mount with the plate behind your spare tire, uses all the existing lug nuts, so it's really easy to get it installed, and it offers us a platform style rack, which we don't often see with the spare tire bike racks. We've got 3 points of contact that are going to hold the bike. Got a front cradle with strap, a rear cradle with strap, and also our center frame cradle strap here. It really does a good job of immobilizing the bike, keeps them from moving back and forth that we might get from some of those hanging style rack, might get some more sway out of those.

We've already taken off our spare tire and taken our plate and mounted that as per the directions on there. Now, you may want to double check but this should be the way you'll mount it on yours.

Stromberg Carlson Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2014 Jeep Wrangler

Today on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler we're doing a test fit of the Stromberg Carlson 23 by 60 cargo carrier, part number CC-100. It has a 500 pound weight capacity. Now the first thing we're going to do is take a few sets of measurements. The first is going to be our ground clearance. Down here to this bottom bolt we've got about 16-3/4".

MaxxTow Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2014 Jeep Wrangler

Today our 2014 Jeep Wrangler we're doing a test fit of the Max Tow 48x21 Cargo carrier. Part number MT70422. Designed to work with 2 inch hitches and have a capacity to hold up to 500 lbs. So the first thing we will do is take a few measurements here. Ground clearance is going to be first. We've got about 18 1/2 inches of clearance. Overall from the back of the Jeep we are adding about 29 1/2 inches there. And our closest point is about 7 inches away. Our spare tire here does hang over just a bit, it's about 3 1/2 inches away or so but with this carrier we can open that back hatch and get anything in or out that we may need just be aware that you won't be able to do that if you have a lot of materials stacked up onto your carrier. Also on our Wrangler we do have a single passenger side exhaust. It comes just about straight out at that carrier there with about 11 1/2 inches between the two so just be careful if you plan on carrying any heat sensitive materials in this region that you might run into a little bit of a problem. This carrier comes with a hitch pin and clip although it does come with it it still allows for a lot of movement and shake. You can purchase an anti-rattle device to slide in there so you won't have as much movement. That's going to complete our look at the Max Tow 48x21 Cargo carrier, part number MT70422 on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler. Let's see how it does on the test course. Here on our test course let's start by running through the slalom.

Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2014 Jeep Wrangler

Presenter: Today on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler, we're doing a test fit of the Curt 20x60 Cargo Carrier, part number C18150. This particular cargo carrier has a capacity to hold up to 500 pounds. The first thing I'll do is take a few measurements. Our ground clearance will be first. Got about 21 inches of ground clearance here. That's because we have that nice raised shank in the back. Which is going to lift that cargo carrier up even higher than your hitch there. Overall to the Jeep, we're adding about 30.25 inches there. Our closest point to our tire is about 1.75 inches. Now with this particular tire that we have here, we are pretty close, but our cargo carrier still does fit.



Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring Kit Installation - 2014 Jeep Wrangler

Today on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler, were taking a look at in installing the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit, Part Number: RM-154. The first thing that were going to want to do in the installation of our Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit is going to be to remove the Phillips head screws here at the back of the taillight and remove the taillight assembly from the vehicle. Once you we have it removed from the backside of the vehicle, well go ahead and unplug the manufacturing wiring harness. To do so, depress the tab and pull out. Then well pull back the tape here and peel back the wire loom so we can expose these wires. Once we have the wires exposed, well go ahead and take a wire tester and test our circuits. Now go ahead and test our right turn signal.

Jeep Wrangler Questions

The Plug-N-Tow TM Vehicle Wiring Harness, # 42615, would be if the Jeep were towing a trailer and not for activating its lights while it is being towed. There are a few options for lighting when flat-towing a vehicle. I have included an FAQ article that covers the various options.

Shims should not be required. Both kits come with all of the necessary hardware required for installation. In addition to the base plates you will also need a compatible tow bar. The most popular option that is compatible with the MX base plates is the Falcon 2, # RM-520. I have linked instructions for...

  • At this time we don't offer base plates that would work with aftermarket front bumpers on your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. I am happy to recommend the Roadmaster # RM-521448-5 and # RM-521448-4 that works with factory installed front bumpers. The tow bar I recommend is the Roadmaster Falcon all terrain # RM-522 because it has the hassle free Freedom Latch which allows quick disconnect from your towed vehicle. In addition, I recommend a Roadmaster safety cable # RM-643. It's...

  • For a tow bar lighting option for your 2011 Jeep Wrangler that would plug in line with the vehicle taillight connectors you would want the TrailerMate Harness part # TM781124 that has been confirmed as a fit. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. The correct Roadmaster XL Base Plate kit is the part # 1432-1. This will work with your Stowmaster 5000 tow bar. Sounds like you have the needed wiring and safety cables, but just in case here is everything else...

  • To install the Blue Ox Patriot, # BRK2012, you will not have to cut or splice any of the vehicle wires on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler. Also, I got a good tip from the installation supervisor here and he said that the feet come installed in the bottom of the unit but in most cases they are not needed and you can just take them out. This will help the unit to stay in position. One issue with the Patriot is that it does not have a way to tell you if the Jeep brake pedal is actually...

  • The tire size you referenced, 4.80-8, and 4.80/4-8 tire are interchangeable. The width is just slightly different, but will fit the same size wheels. The older tire size use to be a 4.00-8, so the 4-8 is added to the tire description so that those who have the older 4.00x8 tires, which are no longer available, will know that this size is compatible with their trailer. This is the case with the Kenda Bias Trailer Tire, part # AM30000. I have linked a tire size FAQ that shows...

This will allow you to connect the Jeep to tow, and disconnect to drive it, without having to make any battery adjustments. The Patriot, # BRK2012, comes with everything else you will need for installation. I have included a picture of the additional parts included with the Patriot.

  • Both the Thule Spare Me 2 Bike Carrier - Spare Tire Mount part # TH963XT, and the Yakima SpareTime 2 Bike Carrier - Spare Tire Mount part # Y02598, are quality bike racks that would suit your needs well. I would recommend the Yakima rack because it has a lifetime warranty, while the Thule has a limited lifetime warranty. The Yakima includes two extensions, allowing it to fit wider tires and since your tire has a width of 255 (10 inches) and the rack is designed for tires from...

  • The RoadMaster StowMaster Car-Mounted Tow Bar - 6,000 lbs, #RM-501, is a very good application on your 1999 Jeep Wrangler with the flat U-channel bumper being towed by a GMC 2500 HD. It does not include any safety cables or base plate brackets. You will need to purchase the Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit, # 1420-1, which attaches to the tow vehicle frame. These brackets then allow the tow bar to attach to the tow vehicle. I also have safety cables available for the tow bar....

  • The correct circuit breakers for the X1 Super Winch, # 1101, would be two of the 50 amp inline circuit breakers, # 87-22873-11. I produced a photo showing how the circuit breakers would be oriented and wired inline from the battery to the winch. I cannot recommend using another brand of circuit breaker for the Superwinch winches, but if you did you would need to stay with the same amperage rating and wiring configuration.

  • You will need to take one measurement on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler to determine if the Thule Apex part # TH9027 will clear the spare. You will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest point out on the rear spare. If that distance is less than 10-1/2 inches this rack would clear. I attached a help article with more info on how to take this measurement as well.

The weight capacity would include the cargo carrier weight along with anything that would be carried. The towing capacity for your Jeep Wrangler is 2000 lbs.

This will eliminate the hassle of having to disconnect your battery cable each time...

  • Front hitches and base plate kits will use the same installation points on a vehicle so you would need to remove the hitch before you could flat tow your 2011 Jeep Wrangler.
