Video Transcript for Blue Ox Base Plates - Removable Draw Bars - BX1126 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Blue Ox Base Plate kit with the removable arms. This product fits certain years of the Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited. This is a custom fit base plate that provides attachment points for your tow bars. It's got a hidden reinforcement design so that means that less of the bracket show. Less of the crossbar support beam and the brackets are going to show. It's got a nice hidden design. These base plate tabs, actually, remove easily for a completely clean look.

Pull the pin, rotate until it disengages and that's all there is to it. It also comes with these plugs, right here, that can go inside those slots. That's going to keep dirt and grime out of the connection points for your tow bar arms. To put these back in, push them in, rotate until that pin snaps back into place to lock the arms in place. It's got a sturdy dependable design. It's going to spread the towing force evenly to minimize the weight placed on your suspension.

It's going to be constructed of a durable steel construction with a protective finish to resist rusting corrosion. When it comes to your installation, it does not require welding. It simply bolts securely to your vehicle frame or vehicle chassis. You got the mounting points right here on the side plates. It's going to come with the necessary mounting bar hardware.

You're going to get a pack of hardware. You're going to get your spacer blocks here and you're going to get the threaded nuts right here with the welded tabs or arms on there. That allows for easy placement and then those can be disconnected once you have those nuts in place. It's also going to come with detailed installation instructions. Right here, we're going to have an integrated mounting point that's going to let you easily attach an electrical connector plug or a bracket. It does come with this bracket right here.

This is designed to simplify mounting a four way round plug. It lines up there. It's going to come with the necessary hardware to get that installed as well. If you're in need of another type of bracket, those are sold separately and it can be found here at etrailer.com. Again, it's going to come with the necessary hardware and detailed installation instructions. It's going to come with two permit base plate safety cables and quick links to get those attached. One for each side of the vehicle and base plate. They simply attach to the base plate to the vehicle frame. Then, it's also going to have, located right here, it's going to have the link tabs to connect safety cables from the RV to the base plates. the products made right here in the USA. A few measurements I want to go over with you real quick starting with the distance between the brackets; going center on center. Those are going to be separated by twenty-four inches on center. This is compatible with Blue Ox Tow Bars. It is adaptable for use with Road Master Tow Bars with the Road Master Tow Bar adapter, part number RM-031 or RM-031-5. Those items are sold separately and can be found her eat etrailer.com. Your bracket height, once this is installed, is going to be about thirteen and a half inches. That's going to do it for today's look at the Blue Ox Base Plate kit with the removable arms.

My third Blue Ox Base Plate. Fit and function are perfect. Fits my existing (first) tow bar and the tab height is nearly exactly the same as my 12 year older Jeep so didn't even need to make any draw bar changes. 111481

Still attached and working perfectly. Continues to survive some rather intense back country trails with no complaints.

Great base plate - -super service from etrailer. Couple of hints, at least for install on a 2012 Wrangler Unlimited: 1) the phillips push pins that hold the belly pan on come out best with a light touch on the driver. I buggered up 2 figuring that out. 2) the plate seems to be too narrow to fit, but with a rubber mallet and some persuasion, it will. 3) Use a corded drill for the holes into the frame. My 19.2 volt didn't have the grunt to get it done even with swapping out batteries repeatedly. 4) Directions don' t say anything about how to level the plate after the first (lower) bolt is in, but probably best to have it level or even slightly angled down or away from the grill (gives better clearance for the electric connection below the license plate frame). Wish the electrical connection had black spring return for the cover and the screws to mount it were black. Also wish Blue Ox didn't put a white part number label and the orange warning label on the FRONT, visible section of the plate. Why not the back? I installed it myself. Took half a day and 2 scraped knuckles, but not to tough of a job with the right tools. My third or fourth purchase from etrailer and all have been quick, reasonably priced, marked by good communication and respectful. Works for me! Thanks etrailer! 41767

I have now installed the following on my 2017 Wrangler: Brake light relay kit . Hopkins Towed vehicle Tail Light wiring kit. Blue Ox base plate. Blue Ox Patriot Portable RF Braking System. All of this has taken about 3 days of work spread out over a week or so. Overall it went well. Not too many surprises. Crawling around under a car at 71 is a bit of a strain but I'll get over it. I must say that Donna P. has been a wonderful source of great information and has stayed right on top of the process. eTrailer has been a great source for this project. I would recommend you all with no hesitation. 396395

The base plate was phone ordered on Wednesday and received the following Monday. Wife and I installed it Tuesday on a 2015 Jeep Rubicon. The most difficult part was cutting the belly pan to fit over it. (It always is it seems. Everything else was routine. Thanks for your help in getting the correct part number straight for us.

I ordered the Blue Ox Alpha tow bar, base plate and curt trailer hitch for my 08 Wrangler on Tuesday and it arrived on Friday. The installation for the base plate and trailer hitch went without a problem. The instructions were well written. Total installation time for both was less than 4 hours. Etrailer readily made good on their low price pledge and reimbursed me the price difference plus 10% when I found the base plate at a lower price than etrailer advertised. On my tow bar the dust boots were not properly attached and Judy at etrailer immediately ordered new zip ties and boots from Blue Ox. I will do business with these folks again. 344869

Although I am commenting on this product, I actually would like to comment on the following products. I purchased a brake system, tow bar, base plates and wire harness from etrailer. All of my orders were filled in a timely manner. When I reached out for technical assistance, the advisors were readily accessible. All of the products were installed by me. All of the products were very easy to install by using the video and instructions. 337852

Overall, the Blue Ox system has worked out great. I had read a lot of reviews, mostly positive, but some who had some difficulty with the installation, but in my case I had no real difficulty at all. The base plate lined up good, I did use a pry bar to spring it a bit, but nothing major. Ok, so this review if for the entire Blue Ox base plate, Blue Ox Alpha, Patriot II and Hopkings light kit package. I deviated a bit from the base plate installation procedure. I never used the vice grips, I simply installed the 5/8" bolts, leveled the plate and torqued them up after applying red Locktite. I was able to wedge/slip the spacer bars into position and then I drilled the frame using the base plate/spacer bar combination to keep the drill perfectly aligned. I did not have a 17/32 drill so I simply used a 1/2" drill to start each hole. I then swapped down to a 1/4" drill to punch through the frame and progressively drilled the hole larger until I got to the 1/2" bit. I have a Drill Doctor to keep my bits very sharp so they do not drift or wander. Great tool for your shop if you do not have one. I also drilled the hole toward the rear first. Once that was complete, I installed the rear most 1/2" bolt, Locktite and torqued that bolt. I then started a 1/2" hole using the base plate, swapped to the smaller bit and again progressively drill to 1/2" using the spacer as a guide and installed the front 1/2" bolt with Locktite and then torqued. I can see where if you installed the front bolt first, it would be difficult to reach the rear to get the nut started. I rechecked the torque on all the bolts once installed. Word of caution, the nuts have some "teeth" to bite into the frame when installed. These kind of nuts do not want to be tightened and loosened repeatedly. You want to install them once and go right to tightness. Less risk of breaking the wire that is welded to the nuts because the teeth are initially sharp and will bite into the frame. If you tighten and loosen these nuts the teeth get duller and will not grab very well. The purpose of the wire is only to align the nut with the bolt. I did slightly "kink" the wires on the bolts so the nuts started easily on the threads of the bolt. To refit the air dam underneath, I simply measured the distance between the left and right side of the base plate and transferred that dimension to the plastic dam. Rather than cut with a knife, I drilled a 1/2" hole in the plastic dam at the bottom end, used masking tape to mark my cut lines and then finished with a fine tooth jigsaw cutting 1/2" slots. Since the base plate is 1/4" thick the 1/2" slots give me a bit of play and look nice and even. I did not take photos yet, but if I can get back here I'll post a few of the finished product. Among the things I really like about this is how up tight and close the base plate connections are to my bumper. You really do not notice the base plate when you look at the front of the Jeep which to me gives it a nice clean look. I got a Patriot II remote braking system. It took me longer to route the "break away wire" and switch than to set up the remote control. The Hopkins brake light package was easy to install and directions were clear. Spent most of my time deciding how to route the wires from rear to front. 563983

The tow bar has been in use for a year now & 5000+ miles. With all the supplied hardware in place, that Jeep will follow me forever! If I was to purchase a new Jeep, I wouldn't even think about any other brand. Great product. 699000

I just wanted to let you know I found you guys! I recently purchased a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and I am anxious to upgrade it as I move forward. As you know, I just purchased a trailer hitch for it and installed it on Thursday. It fits perfectly and it looks great. Occasionally I will pull it behind my 40' DP so that is why I ordered the base plate. The motorhome came with a Blue Ox tow bar and I was excited until I found out it was 15 years old! So, I will be ordering a new tow bar next. George, thank you for your excellent communication. I can't wait to get the base plate and install it! 683877

Have made many purchases from ETRAILER and continue to be amazed at customer service. The Blue Ox base plate that I installed on our Wrangler Unlimited was fairly easy to install, but was somewhat surprised it only came with grade 5 hardware given they provided safety cables to insure there is no separation of plate from vehicle, would have thought that grade 8 hardware would have been more effective than the cables. 526986

This bracket fit perfectly and the video was a great help. The only thing I recommend changing is that since most of us DIYers do not have a lift, I found it easier to take off the plastic top cover piece (two screws) for the bumper to access the 4 bolts to the bumper that are inside the frame (the 4:22 point in the video titled, "Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Installation 2016 Jeep Wrangler.") 499970

  • Difference Between the Blue Ox # BX1120 & BX1126 and will Both Fit a 2003 Jeep Wrangler X Model
  • You are correct that the Blue Ox # BX1120 is confirmed for your 2003 Jeep Wrangler X model, as long as it has the double tube bumper. The Blue Ox # BX1126 is confirmed for 2007 - 2014 Jeep Wrangler, and Wrangler Unlimited without aftermarket bumpers, winches or guards. So the # BX1126 will not fit your 2003 Wrangler X Model. I have included a photo of these two base plate kits side by side so that it is easier to see the differences. The primary difference is the mounting plate design,...

  • Blue Ox Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2007 Jeep Wrangler Sahara

  • Parts Needed To Flat Tow a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • From the information I was able to obtain, the 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited does not require a transmission lube pump to be flat-towed. You will still need to check your owners manual or with your Jeep dealer on flat towing the vehicle. Some vehicles require an axle disconnect, drive line disconnect, or free wheeling hubs in order to be flat towed. To complete your towing setup, you will also need a base plate kit, tow bar, safety cables, wiring or lighting, and a supplemental braking...

  • Base Plate Kit Recommendation for a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • The most common two brands of base plates are Blue Ox and Roadmaster. We have a Roadmaster base plate kit part # RM-521448-5 that would work well and the Blue Ox part # BX1126 that would also work well. Now normally I would recommend an adapter for situations like this but without knowing what tow bar brand/model you have it's pretty hard to say. What I can recommend is that you find out and then check out the adapter chart link I attached for more info. In addition to the base plates,...

  • Is Brake Light Relay Required When Flat-Towing 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • It is not a stupid question. Installing wiring can be confusing and it is very helpful to see a video that shows how the installation is done. Unfortunately we have not had a chance to install a Brake-Lite Relay, part # RM-88400 on a 15 Wrangler Unlimited. We try to make as many videos as possible when we have the chance. To determine if a brake light relay is needed you can answer the following questions: Are you using a supplemental braking system that depresses the brake pedal...

  • Ready Brute Elite RV Tow Bar Compatibility with Blue Ox Adapter and Base Plates
  • The only adapter we have compatible with your tow bar is the Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Brackets for Ready Brute Elite Tow Bars # BX88297. The Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Brackets for Smittybuilt XRC Atlas Bumpers # BX88304 will not work with your Ready Brute Elite tow bar.
