So much nicer thank full size bulky and heavy base plates. The powder coating came off after just one use on the front of the arms which was a little disappointing but nothing yearly paint won’t resolve. Had to take front bumper off truck to install but I knew that when purchasing. etrailer install videos are a great feature of their website. Overall I’m very pleased with the baseplate.

  • Install Video for Tow Bar Wiring for 2019 Ford Ranger
    The electrical plug you see on the front of the 2019 Ford Ranger in the install instructions for the Blue Ox base plate kit part # BX2679 is part of a diode style tow bar wiring kit. We have an install video that shows the process of this install with the # RM-154 that I attached to this page. The specific wiring connector is different but the in-depth part of the install that wires to the vehicle wiring is shown in the video.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2019 Ford Ranger
    For your 2019 Ford Ranger you are on the right track for picking out flat towing components with the Blue Ox base plate kit part # BX2679 and tow bar # BX7380 but the wiring kit you mentioned is for trailer towing so instead you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your tow vehicle to control the taillight assemblies of the towed vehicle. This comes with a round 6-way connector...

  • Will a Grill Guard and a Blue Ox Base Plate Both Fit on my Ford Ranger 2019 Lariat
    After taking a look at the instructions for the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arm part # BX2679 and the Westin Sportsman Grille Guard part # 40-3985 and others like it. They are not compatible together. Unfortunately, they use the same attachment areas eliminating the possibility of them working together. While this may not help all the time using a Rock Gaurd like the Roadmaster Guardian Rock Guard part # RM-4000 can help to protect your vehicle from damage caused while flat towing...

  • Will the Demco Excali-Bar II Tow Bar Work with Blue Ox Base Plates
    Yes, you can use the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit part # BX2679 which is a fit for your 2019 Ford Ranger with the Demco Excali-Bar II Non-Binding Tow Bar part DM9511009 but you will also need to use the Demco Tow Bar Adapter for Blue Ox Base Plates part # DM9523041. The standard connectors that come on the Excali-Bar II won't work with the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit unless using this adapter.

  • Recommended Parts To Flat Tow 1996 Ford Ranger 4x4 Pickup
    You'll need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, a wiring solution, a supplemental braking system and possibly a high/low adapter. For base plates, use # 435-3 which fits all but Splash models. For a tow bar, use the Roadmater Falcon 2, part # RM-520. The Falcon 2 is self aligning, which means the Ranger won't need to be perfectly lined up behind the tow vehicle in order to hook up. For safety cables, the # RM-643 work well. To operate the taillights while the vehicles's being flat...

  • Does Front Bumper of 2019 Ford Ranger Remove to Install Blue Ox Base Plate Kit

  • Can 2020 Ford Ranger with Separate Turn Signals be Tow Bar Lighting Wired as Combined
    The good news is that vehicles with separate turn signals from stoplights can still be tow bar wired as a combined setup. Basically the brake lights would function as if they were wired combined and your extra turn signals basically just wouldn't be used. We actually have a help article that I linked to this page that details how to do this for you to check out but I also attached a diagram that shows how it will be done.

  • Blue Ox Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2019 Ford Ranger 4x4
    The Blue Ox Ascent part # BX4370 is a great choice for a tow bar to flat tow your 2019 Ford Ranger with the base plate kit # BX2679. The cover part # BX88309 is the correct one for this tow bar as well. For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing.

  • Roadmaster Base Plates for 2019 Ford Ranger- Distance from Ground to Center of Draw Bar Pins
    There are a lot of moving pieces with this, since there are variables with tire size, lift kits, payload, etc. and when I reached out to Roadmaster, they weren't able to provide me with any type of precise measurements on the Roadmaster # RM-524459-5 ; they mentioned that it's not something they would typically measure because of all these moving parts. With that being said, they did mention that their best guess is that it's going to be roughly 18" based on the stock 8.9" ground clearance...

The correct Blue Ox base plates for a 2021 Ford Ranger are the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX2679.

  • Recommended Base Plates for 2021 Ford Ranger Compatible with Curt Rambler
    I have a solution for you, but Curt does not make a base plate for the 2021 Ford Ranger. However, your Curt Rambler Tow Bar # C26FR is compatible with Blue Ox base plates so you can use the # BX2679 on your Ranger and they will be compatible. This Blue Ox base plate kit has removable arms to keep the front end clear from obstructions and unsightly base plates when you're not flat towing. You may also need new tow bar wiring for your Ranger; for that I recommend using the Roadmaster Hy-Power...
