Blue Ox Base Plate Kit Installation - 2016 GMC Terrain

Today on our 2016 GMC Terrain we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms, part number BX1689. Here's what the base plate is going to look like once it's installed on the vehicle. As you can see, everything's pretty well hidden. The holes for the arms along with the safety chain connection points, those are about all that's visible. Other than that, everything's pretty well hidden. It does come with a bracket for the break-away switch, which is mounted up right behind the license plate here. If you've got a supplemental braking system you will be able to mount that break-away switch in a convenient location.

Today, on our 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms, Part # RM-521448-4. This is what the base plate looks like once it's installed on the vehicle. As you can see, it's very flush along here, which helps to maintain a nice, clean look. Although you can see the majority of the base plate, it doesn't take away from the look of the Jeep at all. It's also great, because if you have a supplemental braking system, it works very well for mounting up things like the breakaway switch and the fitting for the air coming from the motorhome. All in all, the digital design of it helps to give it this nice, exact fit to keep that very clean look. This base plate is also compatible with some of the Roadmaster accessories such as rock guards and other things to help protect your vehicle.

The removable arms make it really compact, for when you need to park your vehicle, when you don't need to worry about running into your garage door or anything like that. You insert them at a 90 degree angle, where the tip is horizontal.
