Today on this 2002 Jeep Liberty we are going to install Base Plate from Roadmaster, part number 521423-1 from Roadmaster. What we have done so far is remove the front wheels, now you dont have to do this, but it makes the install a little bit easier to get behind to the fasteners in the wheel well. We are going to start from the top and work our way down. Work at the top of the grill and remove the fasteners to take out the grill and then we will start working on the bumper cover. There are four fasteners on the top, here, here, here, and here will start with. And there will be 6 plastic fasteners we have to remove at the top edge of the bumper cover.
There are four plastic rivets that we have to remove. One, two, three, and four, well just drill them out and there are new replacement rivets that come with the kit. The drivers side is done, lets go over to the passengers side and repeat the same process. Alright now two bolts at the very bottom we are going to remove as well. The fin trim from the bumper cover, there is a series of snaps inside here and its very hard to see, but they are in there, you can see one right here, you kind of got to squeeze them from the inside to get them to release, and we have to pull back the thunder well to get to them, and the next thing we need to do is disconnect the wire harness from the lights.
Then we will remove this light so we can get to the wire harness easier, pull out the locks and disconnect it, now if you cant get the lock to come a part, it might be just as easy to take it apart that way. Were done with the drivers side, now we will go over to the passengers side. Also do not forget there are some clips for wires behind the headlight as well that are clipped to the plastic. Okay, before we take our bumper cover off, lets go ahead and disconnect this electrical part, push down the tab right here, and it should come apart. Alright to release the bumper push it backwards a little bit, and then pull up on the other side.
Now at this point we have got everything loosened up, well go ahead and take off the bumper cover, you definitely want an extra set of hands to remove it. Alright next we are going to remove the two end caps that are on the frame. Alright next we are going to loosen up the anti sway bar, we are going to remove these two bolts, two on this side, and there is also two on the other side. And that will give us better access to this bolt when we remove it later on. Well go ahead and use a pry bar to help pull off the bolts.
These two holes here we have to enlarge to a half inch hole size. Next we will install these two plates on the inside of the frame and line up existing holes. Alright next we need to place this weld nut inside the bumper structure here, this hole is going to line up with this hole, and this bolt is going to go through the hole in the back. On the back side of this weld nut, we are going to use this plate washer, its a thick black washer and the lock washer and nut behind it, and that will be part number LT37420. We are going to use a half inch bolt to actually hold it in place while I tighten down the other side, just enough to keep it from moving around. Next we are going to remove this sub frame bolt right here, next we are going to take our bolt and run it through our base plate, and we will reinstall it, we will also use some red lock tight as well. We will snug up the bolt to the brace to bring it up to the frame, but enough room where you still move it around. Next we are going to install this plate, its going to sit like this between the bracket and this brace, there will be a couple of spacers that go in between. Were going to run the bolt through our spacer and our plate here, and also the plate on the inside that we installed earlier, and then we are going to install the nylon nut on top, and behind that bolt we will do the same thing once again. Alright, now we will go and make our attachment here to the weld nut that is on the inside of the bumper structure, and well add the inch and quarter bolt, flat washer, and lock washer, and a little bit of red lock tight. At this point we will go ahead and tork everything down as its described in the instructions. Alright now last thing we are going to do on the drivers side is go ahead and drill out this hole right here. We will start off with a quarter inch bit and follow up with a half inch bit. We will install an inch and a half long bolt, lock washer, and nut, and a little bit of lock tight. Our drivers side is done, and we will go ahead and repeat all of this on the passengers side. On the passengers side this particular vehicle has the water bottle here, and we are going to go ahead and loosen it up, move it out of the way before we drill out our hole so we have access to install our hardware. At this point we can go ahead and take our bumper cover and put it back on there, and see if we need to do any trimming. So that is it for our test fit, now we can go ahead and re-assemble the bumper, and all the wire components with it. Okay now we will reinstall our rivets. The kit comes with new rivets so we are using a plastic rivet gun to put everything back together. Alright with our brackets in place, last thing we need to do is go ahead and add our safety cables. Alright and now the base plate is ready to accept whatever tow bar is available for it, and with that it will finish our install of part number 521423-1 from Roadmaster.
Today on our 2012 Jeep Liberty well be test fitting the Blue Ox Aventa LX Tow Bar, part number bx7445. With the Blue Ox Aventa Tow Bar hookup is a snap with the heavy duty swivel tow bar. The durable ball and socket joint provides a superior flex so you can easily connect even on unlevel ground. The tow bar lets you tow your vehicle safely and securely behind the motorhome.

Today on this 2002 Jeep Liberty Sport were going to install product number RM-8700 from Roadmaster. This is their InvisiBrake Kit. Alright, first thing we do is figure out where we're going to install pulley and then air cylinder and plus this cable will activate it so we want to keep the bins as little as possible in the cable. So were actually going to hide it underneath the threshold going across here and also by the back seat. So we'll just pop up this threshold here. We're going to lay out our air cylinder in this area right here.
Today on this 2011 Jeep Liberty, we are going to install part number 48955. First off, what we are going to do for our wire harness is find a spot where we are going to locate the 4-pole end. And you can do it anywhere you want. We are going to actually run it to the center on this vehicle right here for now. Put it over this pin. And then we will go ahead and start routing our cable from the front of the vehicle all of the way back. Just stay away from anything moving, like the suspension components, or anything hot, like the exhaust. OK, we will take our ground wire with the ring terminal and we will run it straight to the frame. We will go ahead and show you how we routed our wire. Above the sub-frame there is a piece of tubing that goes all of the way across the suspension. So we actually thread it through from the front to the rear. It is actually easier to see from the back side right here. And then we were able to run it through the frame, using the wire pull. We were able to go all of the way out to the back of the vehicle. We were also able to route it through the back cross member. Our green and brown wires go over to the passenger side of our vehicle. And our yellow and brown wires will go over to the driver side. 1:02
Today we will be installing Roadmaster universal wiring kit, RM-154, on a 2004 Jeep Liberty. Our first step is going to be to mount this small bracket here in the front of the vehicle that we are going to tie the front end off so it will be accessible when attaching to your motor home. This is a self-threading bolt. It may be slightly difficult to get started but once you do it gets much easier. Our bracket is mounted. I am going to zip-tie my front connector off to it and begin the routing of my wire to the rear of the vehicle. You can see our wire coming up over the axle now. We are going to use these two rear mounting holes. We are going to zip-tie off the rear leader going to our taillights. Now that we have our wire feed run to the rear of the vehicle, what we need to do is remove the taillight lenses in order to splice our wire in. The first step is going to be open the rear hatch of the vehicle and remove the ports bit screws so that we can remove the lenses. Alright, now that we have our screws removed, we can pop our taillight lens out. I even like to go ahead and disconnect my hold-down and then go ahead and disconnect the harness so I can set the taillight lens out of the way. Our harness plug has a locking tab that will have to be pushed up. Then press on your tab to remove your harness. I am going to repeat the same steps on the driver side. 1:46
Today we are going to show you part number RM-576 from Roadmaster. This is their Sterling All Terrain tow bar. We will be installing this on a 2006 Jeep Liberty. Our Jeep here already has the base plates installed so we are going to concentrate on the tow bar. We have got the parts laid out in the order of assembly. Starting off with these two pieces right here, these are the adapter parts that go to your face plate that is mounted on your vehicle which allows you to connect this cross bar to the base plates and then to this cross bar the sterling all terrain tow bar mounts to it. Start with the brackets that are listed for the driver side and passenger side of a car. This will get mounted up like this and then the bracket for the safety chains is going to get mounted on the bottom like this. Go ahead and bolt up these two halves and put the assembly on to the tow bar bracket. 01:00
