Roadmaster Tow Bar Installation - 2006 Jeep Liberty

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



Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring Kit Installation - 2006 Jeep Liberty

Today on this 2006 Jeep Liberty we are going to install part number RM-154 from Roadmaster. What this does is allows us to wire up the vehicle so that it can be towed behind an RV. The first step is to route the wire from the front to rear and the wire harness comes with two truck ends on the wiring harness itself. We are just going to cut off one end of it, leave about a foot or so on there in case we need to use it again or in case the original one gets worn out. This 4-pole is going to stay at the front and basically you can think about it as like wiring up a utility trailer. This is going to stay in the front and the car is going to become a trailer at this point. We are going to run our wire between the plastic up in here towards the center as close as possible because in the future a face plate will get installed in that general area. Thread that on through until we come out the other side and we are going to route it all the way back and stay away from the suspension components and we are actually going to run it through the frame. 01:00



Roadmaster Base Plate Installation - 2006 Jeep Liberty

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



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Jeep Liberty

Today we are going to install part number 13044 from Curt, and we are going to install this Class III receiver hitch on a 2006 Jeep Liberty. We will show you where the hitch mounts up. It is going to mount up along three holes in the frame here, here and here. And this has a skid shield in place. Your vehicle may not have the skid shield, so it is going to have the empty three holes. And it is going to be the same thing on the other side. In this case, this actually comes down with a recovery hook that is in place. This whole piece and assembly will actually have to come down and stay off when the hitch is installed. Again, there are three bolts on each side behind this hook, too, just like on the passengers side.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2006 Jeep Liberty without Factory Tow Package

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2006 Jeep Liberty Renegade
  • I checked with Yakima and the Whispbar roof rack part # WB-S45 that you referenced is not the correct rack for your 2006 Jeep Liberty. For a similar roof rack that is confirmed to fit your Renegade model 2006 Jeep Liberty you would want the Thule Aeroblade Edge Roof rack part number # TH7502-TH7503. I confirmed with Thule that this roof rack would work for your vehicle. I attached an install video that shows how this product would install on your vehicle.

  • Will Thule Pulse XL Cargo Box Fit 2006 Jeep Liberty with Factory Raised Bars
  • I spoke with my contact at Thule and if you have factory crossbars, bars running from the left to right of the vehicle, the Pulse XL Rooftop Cargo Box, # TH615, will work on your 2006 Jeep Liberty and no additional mounting bars are needed. If your vehicle is equipped with the factory side rails, rails running from front to back, but no crossbars, you will also need the Thule AeroBlades, # THARB53, # TH450R.

  • Differences Between Tekonsha Voyager # 39510 and Prodigy P2 # 90885
  • There are a few differences between the two controllers. The Voyager has been around for a looooooooong time. It uses an internal pendulum to determine how quickly the tow vehicle is braking. In order to operate correctly, this level of the pendulum needs to be adjusted. The Voyager also lacks a digital display which makes troubleshooting more difficult. The controller does not provide boost settings and is not compatible with electric over hydraulic braking systems. The Prodigy P2...

  • Replacement Slipper Spring for a Jon Boat Trailer
  • When replacing trailer leaf springs you are correct in that you want to do both sides at the same time. You can go a little over in capacity but if you go too much the suspension basically wouldn't function as it would be too stiff to move and absorb bumps. When picking out a slipper spring the most important dimension you need to get from your old springs is the length of the spring when measured from the center of the bolt hole to the other end of the spring. The 2-Leaf Slipper...

  • Will the Blue Ox Adventurer Work With Base Plates for a 2006 Jeep Liberty
  • The Adventurer tow bar, # BX7322, may only be used with base plates that have a 16 inch to 36 inch spaced removable tab width. Using Blue Ox base plates # BX1122 on your 2006 Jeep Liberty you will have a width of 20 inches which is within the range of the tow bar. This tow bar is rated for 5,000 pounds. Once loaded your Jeep Liberty could potentially weigh more than this given that the curb weight of the vehicle is listed at about 4,000 pounds depending on the model. You will need to...

  • Yakima Roof Rack and Kayak Carriers to Carry 2 Kayaks on a 2006 Jeep Liberty
  • You should be able to carry 2 kayaks on the roof of your 2006 Jeep Liberty as long as you carry them on their sides. The J-Style carriers like the BowDown, # Y04042, will allow you to do just that. First, you will need to add a roof rack. You will need the Yakima RailGrab towers, # Y00138, and the 48 inch crossbars, # Y00408. I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation for you. With the roof rack installed you could then use 2 of the BowDown Carriers to carry...

  • The installation of the Tekonsha Primus IQ Trailer Brake Controller, part # TK90160, on your 2006 Jeep Liberty with a factory 7-Way will require hardwiring the wires from the back of the brake controller to the vehicle.

  • Compatibility of Boss Motorcycle Carrier # B350DBC with 2006 Jeep Liberty
  • If your Liberty has a 2 inch receiver, the Boss Carrier can be used, but the capacity of the carrier will depend on the weight of the bike, the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle and the hitch installed on it. According to my research, the max tongue weight capacity of the 2006 Liberty is 500 lbs. If the tongue weight capacity of the hitch is 500 lbs, the Boss Motorcycle carrier can handle a bike weighing up to 350 lbs. If the tongue weight capacity is 350 lbs, the bike weight would...

  • Will the Mossy Oak Universal-Fit Bench Seat Cover fit a 2006 Jeep Liberty
  • The Mossy Oak Universal Fit Bench Seat Cover # SPGMSC5403 that you referenced is a universal fit item that will work on nearly all bench seats. So it should work on your backseats, but since you have bucket front seats in your 2006 Jeep Liberty you would need something designed for bucket seats. For matching bucket seat covers for your front seats you would want the Mossy Oak Universal Fit Bucket Seat Cover # SPGMSC4406.

  • Tow Bar and Accessories for Flat Towing 2006 Jeep Liberty

In order to be able to tow at normal highway speeds, you would need a standard tow bar like the Blue Ox Aventa, part # BX7445. The tow bar includes the necessary safety cables, but you will also need a base plate kit like the Blue Ox # BX1122 to provide an attachment point on the vehicle for the tow bar, a lighting solution like the Trailer Mate # TM781104...

  • Trailer Wiring Options for a 2006 Jeep Liberty without Factory Tow Package
  • There are a few different trailer wiring harnesses available for the 2006 Jeep Liberty without the factory tow package. I have included a link to them for you. I recommend either # 118524 or # C55382 because they plug in line with the tail light wiring on the vehicle. These are the harnesses that fit because the vehicle does not have the factory tow package. Models with the factory tow package are pre-wired with a trailer connector already and the wiring for it is under the vehicle.

  • Parts Needed to Install a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2006 Jeep Liberty
  • On a 2006 Jeep Liberty installing a brake controller requires that it be hardwired to the vehicle. hardwiring is not vehicle specific so you can follow along with any video showing installation using a 4 and 7 way installation kit # ETBC7. I have linked a video for you to view. If your Liberty came with a factory 7-Way, you can still use the video as a guide but you would not need the ETBC7 kit. Instead you would need kit # 5505 if the trailer has 2 to 4 brakes or # 5506 if the trailer...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2006 Jeep Liberty with Rear Mounted Spare
  • I believe I have a solution for you. However, I do not think the Thule Vertex 2 Bike Carrier # TH9028 that you referenced would work for you. The difference between the two measurements you referenced is where the measurement is taken from. If you look at the rack you will see that at the bottom of the upright bar is a round pivot assembly that is pretty big relatively. The 6-14 inches is the distance from the center of the hitch pin to the nearest portion of that assembly, whereas the...

If you have already installed a trailer wiring harness and you want to add a fully functional 7-Way, I recommend using the 4 and 4-Way installation kit, # ETBC7. This kit provides...

In the original design of the wiring harness Hopkins recommended the separate power wire be ran to the battery.
