  • Can a BlueOx 6500 Pound TowBar Be Used To Flat Tow A 2014 Dodge Ram 1500 Eco Diesel
    Yes you can use the Blue Ox Alpha 2 Non-Binding Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,500 lbs # BX7380 to flat-tow your Dodge Ram. The typical 2014 ram 1500 Laramie 4x4 ecodiesel curb weight is 5,308 pounds. If you need the other parts to complete the flat tow package I recommend these to complete it. The Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit # RM-154. This is a custom fit wire harness that will connect your RV's tail, brake and turn signal lights to your towed car's lighting...

If that is the case we have some great options for this which I will attach in a list below. etrailer Classic Base Plate Kit part # e98945 (Fits EcoDiesel) etrailer XHD Non-Binding Tow Bar part # e94ZR Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit part # RM-15267 Blue Ox Patriot Portable Braking System part # BLU37TR 12 Volt Outlet Kit part # RM-9332

  • Recommended Heavy Duty Tow Bar for 2017 Ram 1500
    The highest capacity tow bar setup we offer for a 2017 Ram 1500 would be the etrailer XHD Non-Binding Tow Bar part # e94ZR rated at 10,500 lbs. It will require the etrailer Classic Base Plate Kit part # e98945. The only other things you'll need to complete this setup is lighting and a braking system. I recommend the Blue Ox Patriot Portable Braking System part # BLU37TR (Requires 12 Volt Outlet Kit part # RM-9332) and Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit part # RM-154.

  • Tow Bar Recommendation for etrailer Base Plate Kit on 2021 Ram 1500 Classic
    The tow bar that I recommend using with the etrailer Classic Base Plate Kit # e98945 on your 2021 Ram 1500 Classic is the etrailer XHD Tow Bar # e94ZR because it has a higher weight capacity at 10,500 lbs over the 6,000 lb rating of the etrailer SD Tow Bar # e34ZR. Technically the 6K tow bar will be sufficient for your truck, but from what I was seeing online your truck can weigh up to about 5,300 lbs without anything in it so I like to have a higher weight margin. To finish out your towing...

  • Parts Needed for Complete Flat Tow System on 2021 Ram 1500 Classic
    The etrailer Base Plate Kit # e98945 is an excellent option for your 2021 Ram 1500 Classic. I really like the look of it once installed and it's one of the easier systems when you're talking about connecting/disconnecting the tow bar. For a tow bar I highly recommend the etrailer XHD Non-Binding Tow Bar # e94ZR because it has that non-binding feature and it has a higher weight capacity at 10,500 lbs so you'll have a nice safety margin between that and what your truck weighs in at so you...
