Today, on this 2006 Jeep Liberty, we are going to install part number 521423-1 from Roadmaster. What is going to happen is these base plates mount to the frame of the vehicle and allows the vehicle to be towed behind. The mounts will be approximately right in this area, right here. So to get started we are going to have to remove the bumper cover and the grille. We will go ahead and start off by taking the bolts off the lower part of the fascia here so we can get that loose. We have the bottom part of the fascia loose now. Now let us go to the top and start working on the grille and work our way down to take the fascia off. Alright, next we will go ahead and start taking off the grille. There is basically, on this model, there is a series of snaps that hold the grille in place. So we will undo these first. Next what we are going to do is continue with the bumper cover here and remove this bolt here and here. Next we will go ahead and remove the plastic rivets that go to the fender liner here, one here and one here. Repeat the same process back over on the passenger side. Alright, getting back underneath, there are two more plastic rivets that we need to take out here and here. With the fender wheel liner pulled back a little bit, and then push in. There is a little snap right here. And then pull down. 1:20
Get your fascia pulled down just a little bit and this is the connector we are going to remove, right here. That gets pushed that way. Go ahead and repeat the same process on the other side. And then go ahead and take the upper cover off. Next we are going to loosen our sway bar holder. We are going to back off these nuts here and give us more working room. Alright, take off the rubber bushing here. We will do it on both sides and we will take the bar and just pull it down over these bolts and just get it our of our way for more working room. These covers for the end of the frame, we will go ahead and take these off next. We are going to put this backing plate, that match up to the holes on the bottom of the frame here, we will actually put those on the inside. And line those up with the holes. When we have them set, we will just let them be for now. Next step, we will go ahead and enlarge these two holes in the frame here. This L-shaped bracket here, actually gets put inside the frame and this threaded part will end up over this hole here. And then this bolt will go through the holes in the back side of the of the bumper core. 2:51
It is going to be cramped quarters here. On that bolt that is going through the back side of the bumper, right here, we are going to install a flat washer and then a lock washer and then we will install our nut. Alright, when you put the washers behind the bumper core, make sure you use a thick plate washer back there. We will leave them loose for now. We just have them finger tight. Just make sure that the threaded part ends up matching this hole here. And just use on of the bolts just to help to line it up and make sure everything is in the right spot. Next we will go ahead and take apart this bolt here. And that is going to be one of the bolts that helps hold the base plates in place. So we will definitely be reusing this one. Next what we are going to do is start installing one off the base plates. And what we are going to do is apply some lock tight to the threads here. And we will reinstall the bolt through the bracket and back into its original spot. We will just snug it up for now. We are not going to tighten it, just snug it up. And now we have to install a plate and some bushings here and then the bolts. So what we are going to do is put our bushings in where the bolt holes are. Okay, just set them into place. And then we will go ahead and put our block on top, we will pull down on it. We are careful that we do not knock anything out. 4:13
We are going to start with our back bolt. This is going to go in just like it is, straight through. And we will put a lock nut on there. And the second one gets a lock washer on it. And we will put a lock nut on that one too. And now we will take our last remaining bolt and we will run it through the race that we put inside here and we will just screw it all together. When we tighten this down, it will take up the gap in between. we have all of our bolts in place. What we are going to do now is go ahead and tighten them all down by hand and then torque them down to specs. And then there is one more thing that we need to do. Is on this hole here, we need to drill it out and attach one more bolt. Alright, we will go ahead and do the same thing back over on the passenger side. To get our hardware in there, we are going to take off the horn here temporarily. And actually on the other side, the windshield washer fluid jug, we are going to take it off also. And then put everything back together when we are done. All we are going to do now is go ahead and install our bolt. And the other side is going to get a lock washer and nut. 5:40
Next we will go ahead and take down this reservoir for the washer fluid and then we can install our hardware too. With our base plates installed now, we can go ahead and go back to the sway bar we took apart earlier and put it back into place. Now we are looking at the inside of the bumper cover itself. Now since this vehicle did not come with tow hooks, there is like a cover where tow hooks would be. So what is going to happen is, this is in the way now because our base plate brackets are right there. So we are going to go ahead and make a simple line. We are going to cut all of the way across and just make a nice, even cut. We can go ahead and install the bumper back on. Let us go ahead and put the grille back on. And what we will do is just put it in there, push it up against the bumper. We will use a marker to kind of give us a good outline. And then we will go ahead and cut it out. Make it just big enough to work. Now that we have our cut-outs made in the bumper for our brackets, now the last detail is to go ahead and put on the safety chain cables. Take the d-ring that goes into place and just leave that there. We have one on each side. And with that, that finishes our install of part number RM521423-1 from Roadmaster.

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 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.
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
