by:

etrailer did an excellent job on my order for a base plate. I was apprehensive about "extra" costs associated with items coming into Canada as I have been taken by surprise before. etrailer advised me that the shipping cost was what I would be billed and there were no surprises - great service. The Blue Ox BX2249 base plate install went OK. Just a warning, check the frame flange and hole height measurement before drilling. For the bolts to be center to the lower frame flange the base plate had to be installed at 1-1/16" from the top of the frame and not 7/8" as per the instructions. I called Blue Ox and their customer service was also good. They were fine with ensuring the bolt holes fit the frame correctly. You also have to relocate the hole for the air box. All installed in 5 hours and very pleased. Thanks 645051

  • Baseplate Compatibility with 2017 Jeep Wrangler Winter Edition and Ready Brute Elite Tow Bar
  • The Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # BX1133 is compatible with your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Winter Edition. It is also compatible with the Ready Brute Elite tow bar when you use the adapter bracket # BX88297. This will work with the integrated Ready Brake system. For your tow bar wiring, I recommend the Hopkins Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles # HM56200 which will plug directly into the factory wiring harness behind your tail lights. For your safety cables, I...

  • Can the ReadyBrake ReadyBrute Elite/Hercules Tow Bar Be Used with D-Rings
  • I do have an option for you but the Adapters for Jeep D-Ring Bumper Mounts part # RM-035 are only compatible with RoadMaster tow bars therefore will not work with a ReadyBrake ReadyBrute Elite or Hercules tow bar. It also doesn't look like ReadyBrake offers an adapter for the d-rings therefore you have two options. You can install a standard base plate kit like the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit part # BX1120 with the Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Brackets for Ready Brute Elite Tow Bars part # BX88297...

  • Base Plate Adapter Brackets for Ready Brute Elite Tow Bar on 2015 Jeep Wrangler
  • There is one adapter, the Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Brackets for Ready Brute Elite Tow Bars # BX88297 but requires your 2015 Jeep Wrangler have Blue Ox base plates such as Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1126, which do not mount to D-rings. If you have an off-road bumper you would need the Adapter for Jeep D-Ring Bumper Mounts to Roadmaster Motor Home Mount Tow Bars # RM-035-1 if you had 1" thick shackle mounts or Adapter # RM-035 for 3/4" thick shackle mounts. Please keep in mind that...

  • Adapter for Ready Brute Elite Tow Bar
  • We do offer an adapter for the Ready Brute Elite tow bar for use with Blue Ox base plates, part # BX88297. Roadmaster adapter # RM-035 is made specifically for their own tow bar models.

  • Ready Brute Elite RV Tow Bar Compatibility with Blue Ox Adapter and Base Plates
  • The only adapter we have compatible with your tow bar is the Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Brackets for Ready Brute Elite Tow Bars # BX88297. The Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Brackets for Smittybuilt XRC Atlas Bumpers # BX88304 will not work with your Ready Brute Elite tow bar. If your Jeep has a standard bumper, then I recommend the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # BX1126 which is compatible with the adapter # BX88297 and your Ready Brute Elite tow bar. If your Jeep has the...

  • Base Plates For 2016 Ram 1500 Compatible With REady Brute Elite Tow Bar
  • I have a confirmed fit for you, however, the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # RM-52289-5, are not compatible with the Ready Brute Elite tow bar. You will want the Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Brackets for Ready Brute Elite Tow Bars # BX88297 along with the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # BX1986 which are custom fit for your vehicle. This will give you base plates and the adapter needed to be compatible with your tow bar. You may also want a locking pin like...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 1997 Jeep Wrangler Behind an RV Using a Ready Brute Elite Tow Bar
  • First, the Blue Ox base plates for your 1997 Jeep Wrangler with factory U-Channel bumper, # BX1118, do mount below the bumper. The measurement of 15 inches you mentioned is from the ground to the center of the tabs which is the part that attaches to the tow bar. This is assuming stock tire sizes. So you would add half the height difference to bring it to 16 inches so you are correct there. The height difference between the center of the receiver opening on the RV and the center of the...

  • Adapter Recommendation for 2016 Jeep Wrangler to be Flat Towed by Ready Brute Elite Tow Bar
  • Actually we have just what you need that doesn't require you to know the diameters of anything. For an adapter that allows you to use a Ready Brute Tow Bar with Blue Ox base plates you would want the part # BX88297. You would have to use the Blue Ox base plate kit part # BX1134 though as we don't have a version of this for Roadmaster base plate kits.

  • Adapter Needed to Flat Tow 2015 Fiat 500 with Ready Brute Tow Bar
  • If you plan on keeping the Ready Brute tow bar there is only one adapter option available that works with it. For that you would need the part # BX88297. Only catch is that it only works with Blue Ox tow bars. Sot that means the base plate you have to go with instead is the part # BX2800. When you aren't towing the 2015 Fiat 500 Sport the front of the vehicle will have a clean look as the arms of the base plate are removable.

  • Base Plates and Adapter to Flat Tow 2015 Fiat 500 Sport Behind an RV with Ready Brute Elite Tow Bar
  • Since you have a Ready Brute tow bar (the Ready Brake is the version with the breakaway but is otherwise the same from what I understand) you will actually need to use Blue Ox base plates # BX2800 with adapter # BX88297 because there is no adapter for the Roadmaster base plates. So basically to use the tow bar you have you would need to use Blue Ox base plates # BX2800 with adapter # BX88297 but no other adapter or bar would be needed beyond those 2 parts.

  • Blue Ox Base Plate Kit for 2001 Jeep TJ to Connect with ReadyBrute Tow Bar
  • I do have a couple of options for you, however I checked with my contact at Blue Ox and unfortunately there isn't a way to use the Adapter Lugs # BX88296 for your 2001 Jeep TJ Off-Road Bumper with a ReadyBrute Tow Bar. If you already have the ReadyBrute then your best option will be to go with a standard base plate kit like the Blue Ox # BX1120. With this installed you could then add the Base Plate Adapter # BX88297 to make them compatible with the ReadyBrute. The other option is...

  • Tow Bar Wiring and Adapter to Use Ready Brute Elite Tow Bar on a 2010 Honda Accord
  • The most popular tow bar wiring system for the 2010 Honda Accord is # RM-15267. This is a diode system which will require splicing into the vehicle tail light wiring for installation. The other option is to use a magnetic light kit such as # C-ATL20A. There are no adapters to use the Ready Brute Elite tow bar with Roadmaster base plates. If you do not already have base plates on the vehicle you can use Blue Ox base plates # BX2249 which will allow you to use adapter # BX88297 so you...

  • Blue Ox Adapter Brackets For Ready Brute Tow Bar Compatibility
  • The adapter you need for the Ready Brute Tow Bar is the Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Brackets for Ready Brute Elite Tow Bars # BX88297. This is a confirmed fit. The # BX88301 will not fit. There are no adapters that will work with Roadmaster base plates at this time.

  • Adapters to Use Roadmaster or Blue Ox Base Plates with Different Tow Bars
  • There are some tow bars that will fit Roadmaster or Blue Ox base plates using an adapter. But I would have to know the brand and model of the tow bar to be sure. For example, adapter # RM-032 will allow you to use Roadmaster base plates with Demco Aluminator, Excali-bar and Kwik-Tow and Ready Brute Elite tow bars. Adapter # RM-025 will allow you to use Roadmaster base plates with Draw-Tite (2480), Reese (74950), Valley, EAZ-Lift and Tow Ready (63180) tow bars. Adapter # RM-038...

  • Recommended Base Plate Kit for 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to Use with ReadyBrute Elite Tow Bar
  • We do have a large selection of custom base plate kits available for your 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. If you have the standard factory bumper on the Jeep without any winches or guards, I recommend going with the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1126. This heavy-duty unit features hidden reinforcements that will allow for a clean look when you aren't towing the vehicle. Unlike the Roadmaster options that are also available for the Jeep, this kit can be adapted with the Blue Ox Adapter Brackets...

  • Base Plates for 2010 Honda Element EX That Are Compatible with Ready Brute Elite Tow Bar
  • The base plate I recommend for your 2010 Honda Element EX is the Blue Ox # BX2232. Our installers tend to prefer Blue Ox for their user-friendly features. Installation on a 2010 Element will require removal/replacement of the bumper fascia, some trimming of the bumper and minor drilling. You can use your Ready Brute Elite tow bar with these base plates by using the Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Brackets for Ready Brute Elite Tow Bars, part # BX88297. If you need safety cables I suggest...

  • Base Plates for 2009 Jeep Wrangler with Standard Bumper to Fit ReadyBrute Elite Tow Bar
  • Are you referring to the ReadyBrute Elite tow bar? If so then use the Blue Ox base plate kit, part # BX1126, that fits your 2009 Jeep Wrangler and then add the adapters, part # BX88297, that pair up with the ReadyBrute Elite. Right now this combination is the only solution we have for the tow bar. In addition to the tow bar and base plates you also need wiring, a braking system, and safety cables to tow your Jeep.

  • Blue Ox Base Plate and Adapter Recommendation for 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 with ReadyBrute Towbar
  • First for an adapter to go from the ReadyBrute Elite tow bars to Blue Ox base plate kit you will need the part # BX88297. For a Blue Ox base plate kit you will need the # BX1986 as it has been confirmed as a fit for your 2011 Ram 1500. For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground. For lighting you can use the bulb and socket kit, # RM-155, and not have to worry about cutting and splicing into the vehicle wiring.

  • Base Plate Recommendation for 2016 Jeep Cherokee TrailHawk For Use with Ready Brute Elite Tow Bar
  • Sounds like you have a Ready Brute Elite tow bar which means you'll have to go with a Blue Ox base plate kit # BX1136 since we only have one adapter that fits your tow bar and it's the part # BX88297. This is the only solution we have for adapting from your tow bar to any of the base plate kits we offer. I attached an install video for this base plate kit for you to check out as well.

For locks I recommend the Blue Ox Base-Plate and Receiver Lock Kit - Qty 3 # BX88101. These locks secure your tow bar at the hitch and at the base plates using keyed alike locks.
