Will kit 14221 roadmaster fit on my 98 jeep?
asked by: Earl W
Yes, the Roadmaster Classic Base Plate Kit # 1411-1 that you referenced is confirmed to fit your 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee. To safely flat tow a vehicle there are several components needed. The first is the base plate kit which we have already picked out.
Next, you will need a set of tow bars. For that I recommend you get a RoadMaster Sterling All Terrain Tow Bar # RM-585. This tow bar comes with quick-disconnects, safety cables and wiring run for lighting. I attached installation instructions for this tow bar for you to check out.
The next component you will need to flat tow the vehicle is lighting. There are actually several lighting methods depending on your needs and how often you will be towing the vehicle. I have included a link to our series of FAQ articles on flat towing, some of which cover choosing the best lighting for your needs.
And finally, most states now require a supplemental braking system on the vehicle being towed. The easiest to install and use is the Roadmaster Even Brake portable proportional braking system, part # RM-9400. This unit activates the brakes on the vehicle being towed in proportion to how much the RV is braking. This is the safest type of braking action, and it reduces wear and tear on the RV and towed vehicle brakes.
You will also want to check the vehicle owners manual for additional information on flat towing the vehicle. Some vehicles require an axle disconnect, drive line disconnect, transmission lube pump, or free wheeling hubs in order to be flat towed.
