Video Transcript for Blue Ox Base Plate Installation - 1997 Jeep Cherokee

1997 Jeep Cherokee. Were going to install part number BX1110. Start off the front bumper needs to be removed for access to the frame. We got to remove some coverings first. Well go ahead and remove the screws in the plastic center grille and the plastic moldings around the headlights. Well go ahead and set those aside.

Go ahead and remove the two plastic pieces from each end of the metal bumper. Were going to go underneath the molding and use an extension in the cylinder metal socket, well remove the two bolts on the very bottom that hold the molding through the fenders. Then therell be two fasteners in front of the moldings down the very bottom. These are not in bolt assembly so you need a wrench on the backside of the bolt. Theres also a rivet at the very the bottom that we have to drill out.

Once we have these fasteners removed we can go ahead and remove the corner pieces in the bumper. Next, on the passenger side we need to remove the vacuum canister. To do this, well remove these two fasteners here. Now I can remove the bumper. There will be four T50 torque poles that secure the bumper.

There will be two on top and two in the bottom. I can remove the bumper and set it aside for reinstallation later. This vehicle had skid plate that needs to be removed. Were going to remove that part next. Set this aside.

In certain situations there are skids you can be trimmed and reinstalled. In this case were going to leave it off. The bumper removed, you can see there are two black triangle brackets on each side of the frame. There are three bolts each side. Go ahead and remove the bolts for each side of the bracket. Theres also metal nut clips towards the front. Go ahead and remove those and the base plate well have a new hardware for that location. The bolt going towards the back of vehicle will be reinstalled. At this point, we can go ahead and start installing the base plate. Go back two set of hands, well going to hold it up and well install the original factory hardware going towards front. Black triangle brackets will actually be stacked on the top of the base plate. We can install the new hardware and the triangle bracket and base plate. Well have two bolts, two flat washers, a plate and on backside will be a flat washer and nut. Were going to put everything loosen together to show how it goes, and then well take one part at a time, add some Loctite then tight it down and torque it down as specified in the instructions. Well do it on both sides of the frame. Were using Red Loctite part number LT37420. Theres a fastener that goes on the very bottom frame as well. On some vehicles that will be a hole that had to be drilled out. However in this case, your existing factory hole that well use. Theres a gap between the base plate and the frame, so lets paste it out with washers as needed. Well install a new bolt and a lock washer, then well run it to the handle nut going to the inside of the frame. With that installed well go ahead and tight it down and torque it down as specified in the instructions. We now need to install our safety cable. Well hook up one end to the quick link. Attach the quick link to the frame and run the other end around the frame and then back up to the quick link. We have one free side of the base plate. At this point we can go ahead and put our bumper back in the place. Now the base in the bottom will interfere tabs on the base plate, so well hold it up there and mark an area out to locate our holes that we need to drill out for our tabs. Well find the center outline, and then drill them out. Well flip the bumper over and use our hole saw to finish making our openings for the base plate. Go ahead for a test fit and you can see how the tabs go through the holes. This point we can go ahead and reinstall the bumper and its hardware and also the bumper covers on the end. At this point, well go ahead and reinstall the grill and the trim pieces for the headlights. The bumper and the other components reinstalled were finished with our reinstall. That will finish it. Its part number BX1110 Blue Ox or 1997 Jeep Cherokee. .

Great Product... fit as subscribed on 2011 Ford Ranger,easy to follow instructions. There was no communication from e-trailer. After 8 days of nothing I had to call, product at that time had not even been shipped. Very Disappointing. Not so sure I'll buy from them again. 281955

I purchased this unit for our 2014 Ford Flex and it had performed perfectly. I installed it myself and was impressed with how easily it went together and how strong of a unit it is. We have hauled the Flex about 12k miles on both line NH and short runs and absolutely no problems. And it loooks good too even when we're towing. 365552

Review from a similar Standard in Base Plates


I am a pretty good do it your selfer. This was the second base plate i have installed by myself. The first one was on a 2010 Honda Fit. This job took me about 8hrs. by myself. The instructions were first rate. Plus the BIGGEST help was the instructional video about this particular car. OUT STANDING!!! The only problem i had was getting the front plastic cap back on by my self, took awhile but i got it done. Then the second install was on my 2017 Chevrolet Colorado 4x4 pickup. I watched etrailers instructional video about 10 times. By the time i was ready to install the base plate, i pretty much knew what to expect and what to do. The truck job took me about 5 hrs. My best advice i can give is to WATCH their videos, not once, not twice but 4 or 5 times, or more, then the job goes along alot better. And it will be alot easier if you have some help to lift the front plastic cap off, and to reinstall. The rest can be done with no help. 586022

Review from a similar Standard in Base Plates


This baseplate is very well made and sturdy. I would rate it excellent but for 2 flaws: 1. My vehicle has a power steering cooler which the instructions say to relocate on the supplied brackets. Relocating as instructed puts excessive strain on the connecting hoses. I had to cut the pipes and add about 3 inches of rubber hose to the power steering cooler to make it fit comfortably. 2. Blue Ox do not provide any kind of support outside office hours. This type of product is typically installed by the user over a weekend and BO should provide support to their customers during this time. Overall, I would rate ease of install at 5 (out of 10) excluding the cooler issue. Hook up to the completed baseplate is a breeze. We have the Aventa II towbar which takes about 2 minutes to connect. 108372

The base plate was fairly easy to install on our 2013 Honda C-RV. The videos on etrailer are very helpful, giving us the confidence to do the job in our own garage. The only problem with installation was that the holes didn't quite line up after removing the bumper. I think that was noted in the instructions. The removable arms work well and we have had no issues. We have been using this product towing our car behind our motor home for over 15K miles in the last year without incident. I recommend this product. 352325

  • Parts Required for Safe & Legal Flat Towing of 1998 Jeep Cherokee Behind Class B Motorhome
    Virtually all U.S. states and Canadian provinces require that a towed vehicle be equipped with a supplemental braking system of one type or another. Even if you happened to be towing in an area where one was not required my guess is that only a few miles would be required for you to see the merits of a toad braking system! Supplementary braking systems come in many forms. There are purely mechanical systems and portable/wireless electronic systems like the outstanding Patriot # BRK2016....

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 1988 Jeep Cherokee Behind a RV
    Before attempting to flat tow your 1988 Jeep Cherokee behind your RV, I strongly recommend checking your owners manual or with a local Jeep dealer to make sure your Jeep is flat towable. Some vehicles are not recommended to flat tow because the transmission could be damaged. If you determine you can flat tow your Cherokee, then you will need 5 basic towing components. First you will need a set of base plates. Base plates are vehicle specific and provide an attachment point for a tow...

    To connect a Roadmaster Sterling All-Terrain tow bar # RM-576 to a set of Blue Ox # BX1110 base plates you are correct that you will need RoadMaster Sterling Tow Bars to Blue Ox Brackets Adapter # RM-031-5. This kit will work as long as your tow bar serial number is above 14,501. The tow bar and base plates are just two of the components needed for safe and legal flat towing.

  • Using a Roadmaster Sterling Tow Bar with Blue Ox Base Plates on a 1997 Honda CR-V
    Since your Sterling tow bar has a serial number above 14,501 you can use Roadmaster adapter # RM-031-5 to attach to the Blue Ox base plates # BX2218 on your 1997 Honda CR-V. The Blue Ox base plates cannot be fitted with quick disconnects or the keeper for the EZ Hook safety cables. So I recommend using straight safety cables # RM-649.

I don't know what brand or model tow bar you have but if you instead have a Blue Ox you'd want the base plate kit part # BX1110 or if you have a Demco part # DM9518010. I also attached a link to a page that has a chart with adapters listed for going between common brand tow bars and base plate.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 1989 Jeep Cherokee Behind a Motor Home
    To flat tow your 1989 Jeep Cherokee behind a motor home you will need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking.

And second, using the Blue Ox base plates with a compatible tow bar will allow you to use one of the more inexpensive braking systems. For a tow bar I recommend the Alpha,...
