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.

Perfect fit for 2017 rubicon hard rock edition. Minor skid plate trimming required but when done according to instructions, looks like a factory install. It will slightly reduce clearance on attack angle but the ease of flat towing was a trade off I was more than willing to accept.




by:

Worked like a charm, if you don't want to deal with cutting metal you can opt not to put the skid plate back on which is what I did in my case. If you do that the install is pretty simple, basic tools in my driveway got it done. If you want the skid plate back on get an angle grinder with metal cutting wheel and you can DIY that too. Safety first though, clamp anything you're going to cut and use protective gear.

Great product and great packaging. All the parts were there and fit well. Good instructions, clicked on video before installation which was really helpful. Go Dawgs!

Base Plate came with corner of box damaged. One plate was bent and wouldn't fit over frame. Hydraulic jack was needed to spread plates. Other than that everything else was fine and video was awesome.

2016 Jeep Wrangler

Installed on a 2016 Jeep Wrangle JKU Rubicon Hard Rock edition. Install requires cutting of the Hard Rock (Rubicon X) factory steel skid plate and leaves quite a bit of the base plate sitting in front of and below the bumper/skid (not the best setup for heavy off-road use). While the install was relatively easy (other than cutting the skid plate) and I have had no problem pulling the Jeep behind our RV, I think with a little more thought and effort put into it that Blue Ox could have made something much better.

    We do offer Blue Ox base plates for the 2013 Jeep Wrangler 10th Anniversary Rubicon. I confirmed with my contact at Blue Ox that their kit # BX1134 will fit this vehicle as long as it does not have aftermarket bumpers, winches or guards. Be sure to check your Wrangler owner's manual for any preparations required for safe flat towing of this vehicle. Flat towing requires a number of components in addition to the base plates and tow bar. You will also need a wiring/lighting kit, safety...

  • Which Blue Ox Base Plate Kit Fits 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Recon
    The correct Blue Ox base plate kit for a 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited Rubicon Recon edition is the part # BX1134. At this time we do not have dealers we can recommend for people to do installs but typically we recommend finding a local RV dealer with an install dept and have them either do the install or if they'd prefer not to they'd know of someone who could.

  • What is the Difference Between the Blue Ox Base Plates # BX1134 and # BX1126?
    The Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # BX1126 is the correct fit for a 2008 Jeep Wrangler with a standard factory bumper. The base plates # BX1134 are also a fit for the ARB Stubby Bar bumper as well as the standard bumper. It is a mounting point difference as well as the brackets are 3-1/2 inches higher on the latter. I've attached the photos of each on a standard bumper that don't make it real easy to distinguish so I've also attached the installation details.

  • Blue Ox Base Plate for 2011 Jeep Wrangler
    The difference between the # BX1126 and # BX1134 is the Jeep bumpers they're compatible with. The # BX1126 so compatible with the standard factory front bumper, while the # BX1134 is only compatible with the ARB Stubby Bar bumper. In addition to the base plates, you'll also need a tow bar, a wiring harness, a supplemental braking system and perhaps a high/low adapter. I've linked to a help article that lists the various available products to flat tow your 2011 Wrangler.

  • Off-Road Bumper Recommendation for 2017 Jeep Wrangler for Use with Base Plate Kit
    I have a similar solution that might work well for you, but our off-road bumpers for your 2017 Jeep Wrangler like the Rampage part # RA88509 are not rated for flat towing even though they have D-rings on them. I was able to confirm with my contact at Blue-Ox that the above bumper will work with the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit part # BX1134. So what that means is that you can install this bumper if you like and still be able to install a base plate kit to allow the vehicle to be flat towed.

  • Adapter Recommendation for 2016 Jeep Wrangler to be Flat Towed by Ready Brute Elite Tow Bar
    Actually we have just what you need that doesn't require you to know the diameters of anything. For an adapter that allows you to use a Ready Brute Tow Bar with Blue Ox base plates you would want the part # BX88297. You would have to use the Blue Ox base plate kit part # BX1134 though as we don't have a version of this for Roadmaster base plate kits.
