Great product. Fit perfectly. Installation instructions were easy to comprehend with pics. Not sure why people would give low rating for not reading description and realizing this is for a RHD vehicle

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


I watched the video and installed it myself. I had to buy a hole saw, but other than that I had all the tools. It took about 3.5 hours. The only odd thing is the Edge hook up is very high. I had to purchase a 6 inch riser class III hitch.

My blue ox base plate kit came right on schedule. I met my mechanic at the shop and with a hydraulic lift and air tools we had it installed and secured in about 30 minutes. I could have done it alone at home in about 1.5 hrs. It fits perfect and looks like it was part of original car frame.
Thx

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


I’ve bought 3 of these 2 for Mini Coopers and one for a GMC Acadia. Cars really aren’t designed to be towed, so that’s why the base plates have such an involved shape and fit. They aren’t easy to install and are somewhat difficult to force into position. If you’re thinking of installing one in your driveway a couple hours before work, you’re gonna be late. All that said the product does what it is supposed to do and is very secure.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


I ordered a Blue Ox Base Plate for my Ford Focus. Blue Ox said they were out of stock, and would have to make one, six or more weeks? I Order the Blue Ox Base Plate from etrailer, and it was delivered to my house in three days. Getting ready to install it, directions look very well detailed. Look forward to towing our Ford Focus this summer, with our Motorhome, on our camping trips

It is working fine, have not had any issues. I installed it, fit as described.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


This is a somewhat challenging installation, more so than other baseplates I've installed. There are apparently different frame widths on the Suzukis this product is designed for, so I had to use the spacer plates for a proper fit. Once these are roughly positioned it's difficult to move each end of the baseplate independently, and the directions don't really give an exact position as to where the holes should be drilled. The baseplate was very slightly twisted end to end making it really tough to get a balanced adjustment. Got it done with c-clamps and rough fitting the front fascia several times but it took hours linger than anticipated. Also, the directions for removing the grille and fascia left out some crucial information, as they are bolted in rather than just secured with clips as stated by Blue Ox. Had I just taken their advice I would have destroyed the grille. The directions don't mention the air pump mounted behind the metal bumper on the 4x4 model; this needs to be removed & remounted slightly higher to clear the baseplate, with longer hoses being necessary. Also had to cut back the round mounts for the electrical connector, they were way too long and interfered with the fascia re-install. All in all once the baseplate was mounted it does what it's supposed to do, just read some forums and take it carefully one step at a time.

Baseplate was an easy fit,installed it myself with the help of a friend after the easy install I decided to get the wiring harness as well,again simple install neat and tidy hauled my Jetta behind my 1974GMC motorhome from Victoria,BC across the mountains with no problem.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


The Blue Ox base plate seemed well-engineered, but it was difficult to install. It appeared to be welded slightly off angle, which required us to drill the edge of the bolt holes to make them fit. The angle bracket for the breakaway switch is upright, but our breakaway switch mounts horizontally, so we had to add a 90-degree bracket to adapt them (seems like the base plate package should have included an adapter). We are pleased with the look and confident that it will tow our Fiat securely.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


Was sent all the correct parts the first time. Blue ox must have had a bad run of coatings and my tow bar started to flake off. Blue ox sent a new one before I even had time to finish all the wiring, great service from both companies.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


The Blue Ox BasePlate has worked out very well. We've traveled over 3,000 miles on 4 separate trips....with multiple hookups and detachments. Great system. The only constructive comment is the electric hookup for lights/turn signals was a little wonky but my mechanic worked it out with the manufacturer.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


Quality product. Solid, well built, perfect installation fitment. I installed this on a 2020 Jeep Wrangler JL and had no problems. Bumper and lower facia removal were easy (check out the online video...great instructions.) Base Plate installation was an easy, one-person job. (FYI I'm 72 and not in great shape, so if I say it was easy...it was easy!) Total time invested was about 2 hours.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


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.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


Absolutely love our Blue Ox system. Was easy to install (with a little mechanical help) and has served us over 11,000 this past year. We were extremely fortunate that etrailer had a video of our exact year and model which made installation even easier.

We've towed over all sorts of terrain and would absolutely purchase this again and recommend it to anyone who asks!

2017 jk unlimited with quadratec qrc full bumper/ winch. BX1134 is the one you need for this install .Install went well only had to make a couple notches in bumper. Photos attached.cables had to be attached to base plate rear rings no room between bumper and base plate to go around.If you don't want rattles just wire tie rings to baseplate once they are secure trough plate holes it'll thighten thinks up. Very well made product.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


The etrailer service was great as usual, but like other was very disappointed in the fasteners that were provided. Two of the four main bolts stripped when torqued to the recommended level. $20 trip to the hardware store to get grade 8 bolts solved the issue, but I should not have needed to make this upgrade. This is a safety issue that needs to be addressed.


Comments
1 year follow up. The blue ox baseplate has seen a lot of use and has performed flawlessly. My only complaint is that the paint has flaked off some of the parts and they are starting to rust.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


Build quality is excellent. No issues what-so-ever regarding the integrity and the strength of the design.

Installation was not without issues. Some self-inflicted wounds like when I lost lock on all the fasteners for the bumper and frontend. I bet there were over 50 screws and clips each of which had their own location. I wish I would have put them in separate baggies and labeled everything. Also, suggest you use masking or painters’ tape to line everything up before you take the front bumper and cowling off. That would have saved time.

BlueOx recommends using a 1.25in hole saw. NOT for me. No way you can get the hole saw to bite. Much better is a tapered drill. Available for about the same price as a hole saw, far more versatile, and a LOT EASIER to control.

I’ll admit to not being the sharpest spoon in the drawer and I am a bit retentive, but I spent probably 20 hours on the install. The issue I had was not with the baseplate perse, but rather with taking everything apart and then figuring out how to put it back together again with no leftover parts.

There are two criticisms I would levy at BlueOx. ONE: They provide a helper to install an otherwise inaccessible nut. Well that’s fine, but the threads were fouled and need to be cleaned. That should have been prior to shipment. And TWO: They were explicit in their measurements, which I followed, and messed-up. By the time I found the issue, I would have had to take the bumper off – so I improvised a work-around.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


Bought it at etrailer as I have with other trailer hitch related parts. Installed it myself, and it was a real job. I figure about 10 hours to get it right so I didn't have to worry if my 'toad' would pass my motorhome as I tooled down the road. Fit was perfect for my 2008 Honda CRV, but make sure you keep that oil cooler line up as high as possible or you will be redoing the fit to get the front cowling back on the car. Bought an angle grinder with cutoff wheels and that made the frame notching a lot easier. Note that if the removeable attachment pins are a tight fit into the base plate, they will loosen up with a good silicone lubricant and the wear of towing. I have towed with confidence for a year without a hitch (pun intended).

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


I will give a 5 star for fit. I had to grind the opening on frame even after using a hammer so the nut plate would fit so overall a 4. By the way this was installed by my daughter and myself, her Mom.




by:

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


Pretty easy to do my self but the instructions could have been a bit larger with more pictures. I think the hardest part was drilling the holes to attach the two brackets as there was only one hole on each frame. Getting the square nuts with wire attached were difficult to get both aligned because the wire on the first one got in the way each time

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


Debated on paying someone to install the plate but settled on doing it myself. Would have been 110% easier and quicker if the can was on a lift. Other than that, I had all the tools needed and bought a couple of jack stands. Wa-la! Still need to get an emergency breakoff switch, which I didn't know when I had it all apart. I got this!

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


Just what I needed to flat tow my Jeep Wrangler. When I first received the base plate I was thinking about having it installed, but after watching the etrailer.com installation video I decided to do it myself. Couldn't have asked for a smoother install. The permanent base plate safety cables concerned me a little. I came up with a figure-8 over the frame that I think will work ok and I did secure it with some cable ties in a couple of spots.
Thanks to Nick at etrailer for the help and to the folks that made the installation video giving me the confidence to do-it-myself.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit in Base Plates


I ordered all the parts required to safely flat tow out 2017 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk from ETrailer.com. The only part they didn't have was the Mopar Flat Tow Enhancement kit Jeep requires to flat tow this model.

Ordering from them was great, the website is easy to use and I was able to locate all the pieces compatible with my specific vehicle. The expert recommendations help my decision choosing the right parts. I ordered from ETrailer even though I found some of the parts on other websites a little cheaper. I chose to pay a little more because of all the effort ETrailer has put into installation videos and guides. I was very pleasantly surprised to learn from ETrailer that they have a price match guarantee!

So my equipment consisted of the following

Mopar Flat Tow Enhancement Kit (from Jeep)

Roadmaster Battery Charge Line Kit for Towed Vehicles

Mighty Cord 7-Way RV Style Trailer Connector - Trailer End

WesBarg 7-Way, RV-Style Connector w/ 6' Long Coiled Cable Trailer End

Pollak Black Plastic, 7-Pole, RV Blade-Style Trailer Socket - Vehicle End

Hopkins Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles

SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System

Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit for Towed Vehicles

Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar - Motor Home Mount - 6,500 lbs

Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms

Blue Ox Tow Bar Cover - Aladdin, Aventa LX, Aventa II


The installation videos are great but not all inclusive. Take the time to read the instructions that come with the parts. This is a major project, I took about 30 hrs over a full week but as you'll see in the pictures I took s few extra steps to make a cleaner look.

Some of those extra steps:

The base plate install requires the bumper be modified cutting off a flange on each side, I spray painted this to prevent corrosion.

In the install video of the baseplate on the drivers side they use an extra quick link (not included) to run the safety cable around the wiper fluid reservoir. I took the time to remove it and run the safety cable behind it.

I didn't want our nice new vehicle to look like it can be towed so I played the brake away switch and 7 way trailer plug behind the license plate, so when not being towed our vehicle looks great!

Some things to be aware of. The Brake air cylinder that mounts to the brake pedal with four bolts may need longer bolts, it did on our Jeep. Spend the money for weather tight heat shrink crimp fittings. The Hopkins wire harness was about 1.5 feet short to get to my plug location. Buy extra zip ties, electrical tape and split loom.

I recommend reading all the various installation manuals and watching all the videos because the various components integrate together and if you install one at a time you'll be doing a bunch of extra work.

The brake light relay is a real pain in the butt, not because of the hardware but because of the location of the brake light switch which is very hard to get to.

Overall I am very happy with the products and how the installation looks. We haven't towed it yet but do not expect any problems.

Still very happy with our purchase. We’ve towed over 10k miles and have had zero issues with our tow setup. I’ve shared my experience with several other RVrs and recommended your company for their needs. Thank you,

I am really happy, not only with the product but the customer care I received. Very quick and helpful!!

I would make one suggestion. Take the headlights out when doing this on a Chevy Cobalt. It will make it much easier to get to the 3 bolt holding the fender to the fascia.
