Video Transcript for Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Brackets Installation - 2005 Buick Rendezvous

Today on our 2005 Buick Rendezvous we'll be installing the Blue Ox baseplate adapter brackets for Roadmaster tow bars, part number BX88151. To install the baseplate adapter brackets, we'll first need to remove the attachment brackets that are already on the tow bar. To remove them, we'll go ahead and take the bolt out of the bracket and then remove the bracket completely. Now to install the new baseplate bracket, we'll take the bolt go through the bracket, then through one of the plastic flat washers down through the tow bar installing a second flat washer between the tow bar and the bracket pushing our bolt all the way through the bracket and securing with the nylon lock nut underneath. Once we have the hardware in place, we'll go ahead and tighten it down. We'll go ahead and repeat the same process on the other side. Next we'll torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions.

With the new brackets installed onto the tow bar, we'll go ahead and install it on to the baseplate. We'll line the triple lug bracket up with the baseplate arm, install the large pin going through the bracket and the arm and securing with the safety pin on the inside. As we install the roll pin into the triple lug bracket, we'll line it up with the groove designed in the bracket and then install the safety pin. We'll go ahead and repeat the same process on the other side. With both sides installed, we're now ready to tow. That does it for the install of the Blue Ox baseplate adapter brackets for Roadmaster tow bars, part number BX88151 on our 2005 Buick Rendezvous.

  • Blue Ox Base Plate Adaptor For Roadmaster Tow Bar
  • There are two adapters you can choose from for your Roadmaster Falcon All-Terrain Tow Bar # RM-522 and Blue Ox Base Plates # BX1987. You can either use the Roadmaster Tow Bar to Blue Ox Brackets Adapter # RM-031 or the Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Brackets for Roadmaster Tow Bars # BX88151. Both of these adapters will work well, so if it were me I'd go with the better price option. I've attached an article with an adapter table to show this fit (as well as others) to assist.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • The Sterling, part # RM-576, is a good tow bar so you definitely want to keep it. There aren't any Roadmaster base plate kits that fit the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee at this time so I recommend using the Blue Ox kit, part # BX1128, with the adapers # BX88151. The base plates are virtually hidden with the arms taken off. Take a look at the picture I attached. The Sterling originally included wiring to connect the motorhome to the Jeep as well as a 6-way connector to install on the front...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2017 GMC Acadia Limited with a Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar
  • Curb weight is what your 2017 GMC Acadia Limited weighs without people or baggage in it while the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) is the max amount of weight that your Acadia can handle (which includes the curb weight). Since the Roadmaster Falcon 2 # RM-520 is rated for 6,000 lbs you have 1,344 lbs that you can put inside your Acadia before you have maxed out the tow bar. Naturally you will want avoid maxing out the weight so that your tow bar isn't straining. I recommend putting...

  • Base Plate Tabs for 2005 Jeep Liberty and Adapters for Tow Bar Compatibility
  • The base plate kit on your 2005 Jeep Liberty in the attached photo appears to be the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # BX1122 and not the Roadmaster kit. The Replacement Attachment Tab Assembly for Blue Ox Baseplates - 7-1/2" Long # BX62-3468 will be what you need and then adapter # RM-031 or # BX88151 to make your Falcon tow bar compatible.

  • Availability of Base Plates for Jeep Wrangler with Aftermarket Bumper
  • If the aftermarket bumper on your Wrangler is flat and square to the tow bar, you could use a bolt-on base plate, part # BX88230. This base plate would be compatible with a Blue Ox tow bar, but if a Roadmaster bar were used, an adapter like # BX88151 would need to be used. Roadmaster does indeed offer base plates that are compatible with Warn or Warn Elite aftermarket bumpers installed on 2012-2013 Wrangler models.

  • Parts to Flat Tow a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with Custom Poison Spyder Bumper
  • It sounds like you're having trouble finding baseplates that will fit your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited because of a custom Poison Spyder front bumper so you can flat tow it. Well I've got good news for you because we carry D-ring adapters that fit the 3/4 inch shackle mounts on your bumper. They're part # RM-035 and are compatible with Roadmaster tow bars. For a Roadmaster tow bar I recommend the Falcon 2 # RM-520. It's our most popular tow and is very reliable. For safety cables...

Adapter # RM-031 fits Roadmaster's Blackhawk, Falcon, or Sterling tow bars (Sterling up to serial number 14500). There is also adapter # BX88151 which fits Roadmaster Falcon, Sterling and Eagle all-terrain tow bars. And we have adapter # BX88262 which fits Roadmaster Blackhawk 2 all-terrain tow bars. If you can tell me specifically which Roadmaster...

  • Can a Roadmaster Sterling Tow Bar be Used with Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter?
  • You would be able to use the Blue Ox Adapter Brackets # BX88151 along with your Roadmaster Sterling tow bar and Blue Ox base plate kit # BX2223. As for supplemental braking, it is not a nicety, it is required by law in most states and is something I would strongly recommend even if it wasn't. Towing a car is something you want to ensure you have done everything you can for your safety and the safety of others on the road and a braking system is a major part of that. I recommend the SMI...

  • I do have a base plate kit that is compatible with your 2016 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 Trail Boss but the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit part # RM-523182-5 is not a confirmed fit for the Z71 Trail Boss package. For a base plate kit that is compatible with your vehicle, I recommend using the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit part # BX1721 as this is the only base plate kit we have list as a fit with the Z71 and Trail Boss packages. We also have an installation video of this kit installed on a 2015 Chevrolet...

This system features removable bracket arms that leave the Jeep with a clean look when not towing. You will also need the adapters, part # BX88151, that allows the # BX1126 to be compatible with the Demco Commander tow bar you said you have.

  • Base Plates Compatible with Roadmaster Eagle Tow Bar for 2012 Ford Explorer
  • The correct base plates for your Explorer will depend on how the vehicle is equipped. The Roadmaster # 4427-1A will work for you if your Explorer does NOT have the EcoBoost motor. If you have the EcoBoost motor, you would need to go with a Blue Ox base plate, part # BX2632 and the Blue Ox base plate to Roadmaster tow bar adapter, part # BX88151. The website we use to confirm the towability of a given vehicle does not have any information about the 2012 Explorer model. They state...

  • Compatible Base Plates for 2004 Honda Pilot to Work with Roadmaster StowMaster 5000 Tow Bar
  • We do offer Roadmaster base plates for your 2004 Honda Pilot. Roadmaster offers two types of removable-arm base plates, for both Pilots with and without brush guards. If your Pilot has the brush guards you will use # 1544-3 and if it does not have them you will instead use # 1544-1. Please note that the # 1544-1 base plate is compatible with your Stowmaster 5000 but the # 1544-3 is not.

  • Base Plates and Flat Towing Accessories for 2016 Subaru Forester
  • If your Forester has the non-turbo engine, the # RM-52923-4 base plate would work great. If you have the turbo engine, you'd need to use the Blue Ox # BX3619 and a # BX88151 adapter. If you used the Roadmaster base plate, and the original quick disconnect # 910021-00 was damaged in the accident, you'll want to replace it. The EZ Hook Safety Cable Anchor # RM-910653 would be a good addition to your quick disconnect. For wiring, I'd recommend the Roadmaster diode kit, part # RM-154....

  • Recommended Base Plate Kit for 2011 Jeep Liberty 4x4 and Roadmaster Falcon II Tow Bar
  • For your 2011 Jeep Liberty, you need base plates to connect to your Falcon II tow bar. For compatible base plates I recommend the Demco Tabless Base Plat Kit # DM9519222. This base plate will work well with your tow bar and will give you the easiest connections to your vehicle. The Blue Ox # BX1976 will fit your Jeep but you would then need adapters like # BX88151 or # RM-031 and not have the better connection. If you need other components to complete your flat towing package, let me know.

  • Recommend Base Plate Kit For Blue Ox Tow Bar on 2003 Jeep Liberty
  • For a base plate kit that is compatible with your 2003 Jeep Liberty and Blue Ox tow bar, I would recommend the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit, part # BX1119. The Blue Ox kit is compatible with Blue Ox motor home mount tow bars. In addition to a base plate kit and tow bar, you will need safety chains, lighting or wiring, and a supplemental braking kit to flat-tow your Jeep Liberty. The Roadmaster Coiled Safety Cables, part # RM-643, would be a good option for safety cables. For lighting,...
