It is as simple as this. This is a good product. Bolt on and the electric is plug in and no cutting wires and splicing them. No fancy tools to install but it helps if you are mechanically inclined. I have pulled my jeep with it several times this last year with it and it does its job just like it was made to do. I would recommend it to anyone. etrailer has always been good to deal with and communicates well. 735945

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

My 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback baseplate has worked great, no "0" issues. I've towed my car over 4,000 miles and the baseplate is as tight as the day I put it on. Great product...... 608460

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


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

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.

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

The base plate has worked out great. No problems at all since the install.

I am sending some pictures of my installation of the base plate and the wiring harness (TM783130) and the blue ox tow bar on my 2005 Honda CRV. It worked out OK although the instruction for the base plate ( BX2238) installation instructions could be improved some. Everything is installed and operational. Have towed the Honda 150 miles satisfactorily. Thanks for your interest. 468877

The instructional video was very helpful. The installation went very well, taking about 3 hours. Have not towed the vehicle yet, but there are no hesitations or concerns. I will definitely use etrailer in the future. 613326

Ask the Experts about this Blue Ox Base Plates

  • Do All the Base Plates for a 2012 Jeep Liberty Require Removing the Front Bumper
    The base plate options for a 2012 Jeep Liberty all require removal of the front bumper cover. I recommend the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit part # BX1131 which can then be used with the Blue Ox Alpha 2 Tow Bar part # BX7380. In regards to the braking system, the Blue Ox Patriot 3 Braking System part # BRK2019 is my personal favorite. The Tow Ready Tail Light Isolating Diode System part # TR118821 could then be used to complete your setup.

    You will want to check with your local DOT to make sure you can tow a vehicle with a scooter carrier and scooter attached to the rear of your 2012 Jeep Liberty Sport. I recommend the Blue Ox Base Plates, part # BX1131. This bolts to the chassis and requires no welding for installation. The tabs are easily removed for a more inconspicuous look, and includes all the necessary hardware for installation. I have attached an installation video for these base plates on a 2012 Liberty you can...

  • Can the Blue Ox Base Plate Safety Cables Have Chains Added to Tow a Jeep Out of a Mud Hole
    I contacted our representative at Blue Ox and the safety chains included in the Blue Ox base plate kit # BX1131 and the base plate themselves haven't been tested as a recovery point to pull a Jeep out of a mud hole. I wouldn't recommend it and I think your best option is to get tow strap. It's inexpensive and will provide you a peace of mind when the time comes to safely pull a Jeep out of a mud hole. A tow strap I recommend is the Erickson tow strap # EM59700 that has a break strength...

  • Recommended Base Plate Kit for a 2010 Jeep Liberty Renegade
    The only base plate kit we have confirmed to fit your 2010 Jeep Liberty Renegade is the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit part # BX1131. As long as you do not have the factory brush guard then this kit will work well for you. In order to attach the vehicle to a motorhome you will also need a tow bar compatible with the above base plate kit and for that I recommend the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar part # BX7380. This tow bar has a 6,500 lb weight capacity and comes with safety cables. Please note that...

  • Best Flat Towing Components Needed for 2012 Jeep Liberty
    I can give you the best parts for flat towing your 2012 Jeep Liberty but whether or not they can be used with your diesel push will depend on if it has a 2 inch hitch mounted at the rear of it or not. First lets start with a base plate kit. For that the Blue Ox # BX1131 is a confirmed fit for your vehicle that would work well. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

    In order to flat-tow a second generation (2008-2011) 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.

  • Flat Tow Set up for 2010 Jeep Liberty
    While we can get you the flat towing set up you need for your 2010 Jeep Liberty, there really just is no way to determine what tow bar you have without some type of identifier, and base plates only fit specific tow bars that are either from the same manufacturer or that use adapters. So while I know it's not the answer you are looking for, what it means is you are going to need a new tow bar, which we do carry, along with everything else you need to flat tow your 2010 Jeep Liberty.

    There is no safe or recommended way to use a tow bar to flat tow a vehicle that has a front mounted hitch installed on it.

  • Tow Bar for Blue Ox Base Plate BX1131 on 2011 Jeep Liberty Renegade
    According to Blue Ox, the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1131 is only compatible with motorhome-mounted tow bars, so it will not work with your BX4212 car-mounted tow bar. We do have tow bars which will work, and for that I recommend the etrailer SD Non-Binding Tow Bar for Blue Ox Base Plates # e47ZR. This is a great value for a tow bar that has long arms for maneuverability and also has safety chains so you don't have to purchase those separately. Along with Tow Bar # e47ZR and Blue Ox...
