Simple, Hidden Design

Blue Ox Base Plate With Arms AttachedBlue Ox Base Plate Arms Removed

This base plate's hidden design creates a clean and seamless look. The bracket arms are easily removable, creating a slick appearance when you're not flat towing. Because the arms can be removed, you also won't have to worry about banging your leg into any protruding arms when you walk by.


Blue Ox Base Plate Removable Arms

Attaching and removing the bracket arms is a breeze. To attach the arms to the base plate, simply insert them into the receivers and rotate them until they lock into place. Once you're finished towing and want to remove the arms, pull the pin to disengage the lock, rotate the arms, and remove them from the receivers. Finally, plug up the now empty receivers with the included receiver covers to help keep dirt and debris out of the base plate and provide a finished look.


Guide to Flat Towing

Flat towing your vehicle is much more convenient than using a trailer or a tow dolly. These other options take up much more storage space, leaving you less room both at home and at the campsite. In addition, securing your vehicle to a trailer or tow dolly can be a hassle and more time consuming than hooking up with a tow bar.


There are 5 basic components needed when flat towing a vehicle: a tow bar, a base plate kit, a safety cable set, tow bar wiring, and a supplemental braking system.


Towing Basics

The tow bar links your towed car to your motorhome. It attaches to the custom-fit base plates that install on the frame of your towed car. Safety cables ensure that your towed car does not separate from your motorhome in the event that your tow bar becomes detached. Tow bar wiring allows your towed vehicle's signal lights to sync up with your motorhome's tail lights, which is required by law in most states. Finally, the supplemental braking system - also required in most states - brakes your towed car when the brakes in your motorhome are activated, preventing wear on the motorhome and decreasing braking distance for your entire setup.

Great product and am super happy with the customer service. Steve from etrailer.com emailed me the day my tow bar arrive with additional information on installation and provided a contact number if I needed. Product I received was out standing and the customer service is even better. I will shop here again and recommend anyone to this company.

2007 Jeep Liberty

I am very pleased with the service, shipping and product quality of my recent purchase...a "Blue Ox" baseplate for out 2007 Jeep Liberty. The online installation video was instrumental in my self installation...it was much easier than I could have imagined. Final results look great and no doubt saved $$$$ doing it myself. As this will be towed behind our motorhome, I also purchased and installed the tow wiring harness. Again, the installation video made this very easy.

Customer service was very helpful in making sure I ordered the correct products for our Jeep. Everything was shipped out the same day. From order to install took only 4 days. I would highly recommend eTrailer!


Comments
Base plates performing well. Tows behind our motorhome with ease. Thanks for the follow-up!

Everything was outstanding. I received the base plate on time and everything was there that was suppose to be. You folks are tops in my book. Thank You.

2007 Jeep Liberty

Installed the Blue Ox baseplate on a 2007 Jeep Liberty. After reading the instructions and watching the etrailer video, it was a simple install. Took about 3 hours - most of which was just being careful taking the bumper off the car and putting it back on. The baseplate itself only took maybe an hour.

Support and quick shipment from etrailer was excellent. Yesterday, I made another purchase with them to receive the wiring kit and tow bar.

Hook up was good




by:

It was eaiser to install than the facia was to remove and replace on my jeep




by:

This purchase reflected our second base plate. The first one was on a 2006 Jeep Liberty w/o any problem during its lifetime. Last year, the old Jeep was damaged in an accident. We bought another Jeep Liberty 2007 used model. The initial installation was fine but the base plate became loose after about one month. I found two of the weld nuts on each side became loose and had to order replacements from Blue Ox. The weld nuts quality seemed to deteriorated as compare to our 2011 version. Once I replaced the weld nuts we have not had any problems.


Comments
It has been a bit more than a year since I put the Blue Ox base plate on our second Jeep Liberty. It worked fine since I replaced the weld nuts. I have had no issues with the installation.

If you are mechanically inclined then this should install fairly easy. I Did this myself and I took my time and got it installed in about 3 hours This is on a 2005 Jeep Liberty. Towed to Pigeon Forge Tenn. and back.

  • Replacement Removable Arm for Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1122
    The correct removable arms (also called attachment tab assembly) for Blue Ox baseplate kit # BX1122 that you reference are part # BLU57XR. I have included a video review of the removable arm for you to check out.

  • Recovery Point for 2006 Jeep Liberty with Blue Ox Base Plate Kit
    On the Blue Ox base plate kit that fits your 2006 Jeep Liberty # BX1122 there are tabs that are designed for the safety chain setup of the tow bar setup to attach to. Those could be used as a recovery point in an emergency but there aren't any recovery loops designed to attach in place of the removable arms.

  • Will the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit for a 2004 Jeep Liberty Fit a 2006
    The correct Blue Ox Base Plate Kit for a 2006 Jeep Liberty is part # BX1122 and the correct Blue Ox Base Plate Kit for a 2004 Jeep Liberty is part # BX1119. The two are not the same and not cross-compatible due to changes in the front end of the vehicle.

  • Blue Ox Base Plate Kit and Tow Bar Wiring Recommendation for a 2007 Jeep Liberty
    The correct Blue Ox base plate kit for your 2007 Jeep Liberty is the part # BX1122. Sounds like you already have a tow bar and all you need is wiring. Which for that I would recommend the Hopkins Tow Bar Wiring Kit part # HM56203. This will plug in line with your Liberty's taillight wiring harness and will allow your motorhome to activate the taillights.

I attached a picture that points out which of the bolt holes requires drilling. The needed hardware/bolts are included.

  • Recommended Parts to Flat-Tow a 2005 Jeep Liberty
    In order to flat-tow your 2005 Jeep Liberty with all four wheels on the ground you will need a base plate kit, tow bar, flat-tow wiring harness, safety cables, supplemental braking system, and possibly a high-low adapter. I have attached my recommendations for each of these parts below with ease of use in mind.

  • Tow Bar and Accessories for Flat Towing 2006 Jeep Liberty
    The Tow Ready # 63180 tow bar you referenced could be used on a 2006 Liberty, but you would be limited to towing at a maximum of 45 mph. In order to be able to tow at normal highway speeds, you would need a standard tow bar like the Blue Ox Alpha, part # BX7380. The tow bar includes the necessary safety cables, but you will also need a base plate kit like the Blue Ox # BX1122 to provide an attachment point on the vehicle for the tow bar, a lighting solution like the Hopkins # HM56203 that...

  • Compatibility of Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar With # BX1122 Base Plate Kit for 2005 Jeep Liberty
    The Blue Ox Adventurer tow bar, part # BX7322 has arms that can adjust so they'll fit base plate brackets that are between 16-34 inches apart. Since the # BX1122 base plate brackets are 20 inches apart, they are compatible and would work just fine. Just be aware that the Adventurer is rated for 5000 lbs. Some models of the Jeep Liberty can weigh above 4000 lbs, so you'll need to be careful about the weight of any gear you carry in the Liberty, if any. To complete your set-up, you'll also...

  • Will the Blue Ox Adventurer Work With Base Plates for a 2006 Jeep Liberty
    The Adventurer tow bar, # BX7322, may only be used with base plates that have a 16 inch to 36 inch spaced removable tab width. Using Blue Ox base plates # BX1122 on your 2006 Jeep Liberty you will have a width of 20 inches which is within the range of the tow bar. This tow bar is rated for 5,000 pounds. Once loaded your Jeep Liberty could potentially weigh more than this given that the curb weight of the vehicle is listed at about 4,000 pounds depending on the model. You will need to stay...

The most popular of these is the Avail. It also comes with safety cables so you would not have to add any. You will also need a lighting solution to flat tow the vehicle. I recommend the bulb and socket kit # RM-155. It will bypass the vehicle wiring so you will not have to splice into it. Most states...
