The product is what I wanted and it came with great instructions. Afoot it quickly and I can’t wait to start towing my Jeep behind the motorhome 605479

We decided to purchase the Blue Ox set up for our 2018 Wrangler JL. The set up works very well and has been easy to connect/disconnect, so far. The instructional installation video was EXCELLENT and definitely contributed to making the installation a breeze. Thanks again etrailer. Only alteration was to the brake away switch. It seemed to stick out too far in front of the bumper, for my liking, so I added a stainless nut/bolt and two nylon bushings so it could swivel out of harms way when not in use. 615566

Good fit. Instructions mis leading somewhat. 2018 Jeep JL does not have 7 metal screws holding bumper shields but plastic screws that need special tool to unscrew. I pulled them out and replaced with metal screws in reinstallation. After tow bar installation the lower plastic shield will require cutting to reinstall. I left this off and did not reinstall. Looks fine and save if towbar is removed later. Did by me self and took about 2.5 hours. 602635

Product fit very well and instructions were very accurate. It does help to watch the video as well. This is the second tow vehicle I have used etrailer for but will probably have the Jeep Wrangler for a while now. I like how you don't really notice it when on the vehicle. 816814

Straight forward install on 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara. A couple minor cuts and a tad bit of drilling and this goes on easily. Maybe hardest part is getting the 8 nuts off to disconnect the bumper - Just takes time because a difficult to get the wratchet to make long turns. 802794

Great product. I installed it on a 2020 Jeep Wangler JL. If you’re inclined to install yourself, it was easy to follow the instructions and is very solid and sturdy. It also has a fairly clean appearance installed on a black Wrangler. 796697

Installation took a little longer than Blue Ox advertised but I take my time to do a good job. I had all the necessary tools so the install went well. I am a repeat customer and will continue doing business with etrailer. They have lots of instructional videos and treat you fair. 769587

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. 762799

This is the third tow plate I've installed; two Jeep and one F-150. The installation is straight forward, easy to accomplish, and the item looks great once installed. My only wish is to be able to install grill guards and other accessories that use the same frame bolt position. Seems to me this would be something the makers of these bars could figure out without too much difficulty! 714482

First endeavor on 4 down towing a 2018 jeep Wrangler JL. Use to use tow dolly but couldn’t understand why we went that direction. This is a very stout piece of hardware. Installation took about 3 hours. Referred to etrailer’s installation video which was very well done. Only recommendation i would make is to specify that a 18mm DEEP socket is required to remove bumper. Very pleased with this purchase which arrived 3-4 days after placing order. No hesitation on using etrailer for all my RV towing needs. Great job etrailer! 693141

My install was on a 2018 Two door Wrangler JL. This is my third Blue Ox base plate installation as I prefer to do my own installations and the product is fantastic. Use of a torque wrench, and Loctite, is very important. The instructions should have given a torque setting for re-installation of the bumper for Option 2. I found that the setting is 66.5 Foot Pounds and I used Blue Loctite on those four bolts/nuts. The most challenging aspect of the install was fitting the belly pan and that was just a matter of patience. I had to remove the plastic mounting piece for the fog lights and used a plastic tie wrap to secure it. 656246

    Sounds like you've gotten some good use out of the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1126 for your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited! Jeep actually had a generation swap mid-year for 2018 models so your 2020 Wrangler Unlimited will use a different base plate kit which I've listed out for you below: Standard Factory Bumper - # BX1139 Off-Road Bumper with 1" D-Ring Mounts - # BX88304 If you have something different please let me know.

  • Availability of Base Plate Kit that Fits 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to Tow with Blue Ox Tow Bar
    Right now (March 2019) the only base plate kits we offer for the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited require the front bumper to be stock like the # BX1139 that you referenced. This most likely could change in the future as more fits get designed for the new Wranglers so what you can do is check out the link I attached to this page that will take you to a list of all of the base plate kits we offer for your vehicle that will always be updated with the latest fits.

  • Can Trailer Wiring and Tow Bar Wiring Install at Same Time on 2020 Jeep Wrangler
    Yes, the trailer wiring kit part # 118786 and the tow bar wiring kit part # RM-15267 will both easily fit on your 2020 Jeep Wrangler at the same time. You'd install the trailer wiring exactly like the instructions detail by installing the connectors inline with the taillight wiring and then you'd use the diodes of the # RM-15267 installed on the vehicle wiring before the trailer wiring and everything would work just fine. I attached install videos for both kits for you to check out as well.

    The Blue Ox Base Plate Kit part # BX1139 is a fit for your 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited as long as you have the standard factory front bumper. We have not yet had the chance to install this base plate kit on a Jeep so no video is available but if you take a look at the instructions which I have attached for you, you can get a better idea of what all is involved.

  • Base Plates for a 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JL with ACC
    For your 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JL with the adaptive cruise control (ACC) you can use the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit part # RM-521453-4 which is a confirmed fit. If you have a Blue OX tow bar then you can still use it with this base plate kit but you will also need the Roadmaster Tow Bar Adapter part # RM-032. The issue with ACC is in regards to the location of the sensors/brackets which Roadmaster has deemed is not an issue while using the above base plate kit.

    When putting together a flat towing package you'll need parts from the following categories: base plates, tow bar, safety cables, tow bar wiring, supplemental braking and a high low adapter.
