2009 Lincoln MKX - Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms

  • Removable Drawbars
  • Roadmaster
  • Hitch Pin Attachment

The crossbar-style hidden brackets attach to your Lincoln MKX's frame to provide attachment points for your tow bar. The visible portions of the brackets can be removed when you are not towing.


Features:

  • Hidden bracket design - drawbars are easily removable via 2 pins
    • Improved aesthetics compared with standard brackets
  • Computer-cut, all-steel construction provides exceptional strength
  • Black powder coat finish is durable and corrosion resistant
  • Simple installation - no welding required
    • Custom base plates ensure a perfect fit for your vehicle
  • Compatible with Roadmaster tow bars with use of quick-disconnect crossbar (910021-00 - sold separately)
  • Instructions and mounting hardware included
  • Made in the USA
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty


The square drawbars, or front arms, on the crossbar-style base plate kit are simple to mount and remove, easily securing with hitch pins. Once the drawbars have been removed, the remaining brackets are virtually invisible. On most automobiles, the brackets are mounted within the grille, where they remain not only unseen, but protected from scrapes and scuffs as well.

This went onto my 13 Edge pretty easily. I had to do a minor bit of grinding to one of the ears to allow it to slip on, but otherwise great fit. I suggest anyone looking for a base plate for this era Edge, to use the Roadmaster. The simple reason is that the components all come through the lower valance rather than the middle of the bumper like the Blue Ox. Also be sure to support the core support as the directions say, as the plastic sags quickly and it's hard to align. Also as usual etrailer delivery is quick and well packed.

The base plate fit perfectly. There were no issues with the installation. We also use the the Roadmaster adapter with our Demco Excali-Bar tow bar for a simple solid setup.

2008 Ford Edge

I chose the Roadmaster baseplate because a friend gave me his old Sterling Roadmaster All Terrain hitch. I had been familiar with Blue Ox and I believe installing that baseplate would have been less labor intensive, but the Roadmaster has more attachment bolts and points, so I feel the Roadmaster is a stronger design. I am almost 74, frugal, on a fixed income, and methodical in such projects, so I did the install. I had no access to a lift which is a huge disadvantage but I was determined to do it myself and save $500. For wiring I Jacked up the car on the driver's side and placed two support jacks in place since that is the side the battery is located on my 2008 Ford Edge. I discovered that by starting with the taillight on the right rear that I could remove the rubber grommet and drill another hole for my 4 wire cable to pass through and down to the luggage compartment of the hatchback and run the wires under the lip of the plastic liner inside across from the spare tire and over to the left taillight. I attached all the wires to the diodes and put the white ground wire in the housing with the supplied self-taping screw. I used the 7 to 6 wiring purchased from e-Trailer. With the car jacked up I was able to run the 4-wire cable down the driver's side and up to the battery where I coiled it until I needed it for the plug later. I also used a separate red wire with a 30 amp fuse to run with the 4-wire cable down to the 6-plug once I had the Ford's fascia removed and the baseplate installed. I mounted the plug to the license plate holder to avoid more cutting out of the fascia plastic grill. The etrailer video for the Edge was essential, but what seems simple on video is not so as special tools are needed at times. I don't have a right-angled drill for tight places but my small ratchet worked. I don't have a Y plastic plug remover but a screwdriver and some side cutters worked. Once all the screws are out of the fascia and you've unplugged the fog lights (not that easy until you see how they lock in place) the fascia could be removed with two people as shown. I discovered that taking the bolts out of the headlights gave me easy access to the top bumper bolts. The baseplate replaces this bumper so you have to store it somewhere or try to sell it. Without a lift, it is definitely a two-person job which my wife was happy to help at those times, and I work well alone and asking a buddy to help for two days is a lot to ask. The video could be a little clearer regarding the support for the upper radiator by showing underneath where the support jack must go because there are several points that the jack could go but I think where I had under the radiator was okay but now I think it needed to go the next point beyond that, which I discovered when I went to put in the side arms of the baseplate that attach top and bottom to the casing for the radiator. The holes only lined up when the casing was lifted. Hopefully, no damage. Getting the fascia back on is definitely a two-man job when working from the floor. All in all it took me from start to finish two days because I was methodical and had to use lots of ingenuity to solve the issues that inevitably arose. But if you are patient and determined it is worth it for one's self-esteem and pocketbook. I will definitely use etrailer again.

Etrailer once again did not disappoint. Service was fast, fairly priced, totally complete. Video that was emailed to me was extremely helpful in tackling a daunting task that I was totally unfamiliar with and saved me hours of trying to figure out what had to be dismantled to accomplish the job. Again thank you etrailer and Sal who was extremely helpful.

Good product, if installing on Lincoln MKX their video shows installing on a Ford Edge. You will need quite a bit more trimming on the MKX grill than what is shown. It will work (eventually) though.

Roadmaster always has complete install instructions which are easy to follow. There is one thing about this kit that be improved, and that would be the directions for cutting holes in the grill. Their picture leaves a lot to be desired. I have the kit installed, the wireing in place, and cutting the grill and replacing it are all that remains. I am going to make a template out of the box to make me a little less worried cuttting the grill of my wifes new car.

Review from a similar XL in Base Plates


Great product, shipping was FAST. Instructions were adequate, but minimum - this was not surprising, you have to know how to bend wrenches to install something like this yourself. I had a factory-installed tow hook on each side that had to be uninstalled, but once you remove the front bumper shroud it is easy to remove and all the bolts are easy to remove. Once the hook was out of the way, easy-peasy!

Works fantastic! Install was relatively easy, I made adapter plates for my Husky tow bar. Nice!

Thank you All at etrailer. Once again you All have out done yourselves, which is big job. Due to the fact you always do a great job. Well there was one time, when an item was shipped from the manf. But even then you sent a reimbursement for a portion of the labor cost it took to make the hitch fit a Classic 1981 El Camino. Even in this difficult time of covid, your still doing your best.

Review from a similar XL in Base Plates


This is the third time I have order base plates and electrical hook ups from etrailer and love this company. We have a 1979 MCI Bus conversion and it is difficult at time finding things for towing etc for it because of age. Not with etrailer, they have it all. We have towed a 96 S-19 chevy, a 98 Jeep was next and this year we got a 2001 Jeep Cherokee which we got the electrical kit for from etrailer.com and the base plates are still on the way. Everything fits nicely and if you are unsure of how it all goes together just watch their video''s on the etrailer website which are very informational. Thank You etrailer.com for being there when we need you. See you all down the road....

Review from a similar XL in Base Plates


This base plate was installed on a 2008 Kia Spectra. The bracket is strong and not really hard to work with HOWEVER,,,,,,,,,, I am used to the BlueOx base plate which is much easier to "hook up". Unfortunately, BlueOx did not make a base plate to fit my vehicle. That is not a big problem as I'm usually not in any hurry and it only takes maybe 5 minutes longer to "hook up". The biggest problem with the RoadMaster base plate is that due to the way it is bolted to the frame, it only allows for a 6-inch ground clearance on the front of the vehicle. I have to be very careful with any "dips" in the road, especially on cross streets. Six inches may not sound like much but since the tires are several feet behind the base plate, it reduces that ground clearance greatly. It also will not clear the concrete "stop blocks" in front of many parking spaces. If you are not very careful and keep this in mind, you may likely bend the frame of your car when you come to one of these sudden impacts. I haven't bent anything yet but it has certainly been shocking when it hits. Most of the time, the impact will cause the base plate to scrape and lift the car to the height to clear the obstacle. I've attached a picture with a ruler in the view.


Comments
Other than the clearance of the mounting bracket I noted in my original review, the base plate worked out fine on the Kia. I ended up replacing the Kia with a new Subaru. I was able to buy a Blue Ox base plate for it and all mounting hardware is up and out of the way of obstacles.
