  • Blue Ox Base Plate Kit for Flat Towing 2019 Ford F-150 King Ranch
    The Blue Ox base plate kit part # BO74FR that you referenced is the correct Blue Ox base plate kit part number for your 2019 Ford F-150 King Ranch. For a tow bar to use with this the Blue Ox Avail part # BX7420 is a really great option. It's very easy to use and also tracks the towed vehicle behind the tow vehicle better than most bars. For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight...

  • Does Blue Ox Base Plate Kit for 2014 Ford F-150 Require Use of Crossbar
    The Blue Ox base plate kit part # BO74FR that you referenced does not require a crossbar between the two mounts. This style of base plate is more common on trucks as they have much more robust frames than other vehicles. Due to this difference a crossbeam is just not needed. Your tow bar would work easily with this.

  • What are the Differences in the Curt and Blue Ox Base Plates on my 2020 Ford F-150
    The only difference in the two base plates you mentioned the Curt Custom Base Plate Kit part # C78FR and the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit part # BO74FR is the manufacturer. I would take the value all day long! We do have a Roadmaster 10k tow bar like the Blue Ox Avail Tow Bar part # BX7420 in the Roadmaster BlackHawk 2 All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar part # RM-422 you will use the Blue Ox Adapters part # RM-031 to adapt it to the Curt Base Plate part # C78FR.

  • Does Blue Ox Base Plate and Tow Bar Fit 2019 Ford F-150
    I checked with Blue Ox and can confirm that the base plates that fit your 2019 Ford F-150 are the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BO74FR, which is compatible with the Blue Ox Avail Tow Bar # BX7420. If you take a look at the linked instructions, you can see that this base plate kit is just the arms, because they take the place of the tow hooks on your 2019 Ford F-150. This means there isn't a bar or frame piece that gets attached to your truck. The base plates and tow bar are just a part of...

  • Correct Blue Ox Baseplate Kit for 2018 Ford F-150
    The correct Blue Ox Base Plate Kit for your 2018 Ford F-150 is part # BO74FR (Blue Ox BX2681). The # BX2606 baseplate kit you referenced is designed to fit a 2009-13 Ford F-150, so it will not fit your 2018. For a complete flat towing setup on your 2018 Ford F-150, you will need a number of other components, including, a tow bar, safety cables, towbar wiring, and a supplemental braking system. I've attached a Helpful Link below with my recommendations.

    Both of the Blue Ox base plate kits # BX2671 and the # BO74FR are a confirmed fit for your 2019 Ford F-150 and would work well for you. I'd go with the one priced better if I were you.
