Roadmaster Base Plates - 1419-7

  • Roadmaster
  • Removable Drawbars
  • Hitch Pin Attachment

The crossbar-style hidden brackets attach to your vehicle'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 Quick Disconnects and all Roadmaster tow bars
  • 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.

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! 729492

Fast delivery and good customer service! I ordered online and made an error that ended up as a double order. I called and the problem was immediately fixed and there were no issues with the products or my payment. I received it within 2 day! Amazing! Right product, right fit for my Jeep and clear instructions to install. 713135

This Roadmaster Base plate is absolutly the strongest for safe towing. 1/4" base plate. Everything is heavy duty. Everything FITS perfectly and hole LINE UP!! One TIP - the 4-10mm x 1.5 x 45mm bolts would not fit my 2002 Gran Cherokee. INSTEAD get 8.8 hardness 3/8 x 16 thread (NC) x 1 1/2 inches long. This is the thread thats in the 2002 Grand Cherokee frame. Everything else is good to go. I would recommend this product and am VERY HAPPY. Installed about 1 hr. No hurry I'm 70. Will pull behind my truck camper with confidence 8^). Best price AND service from etrailer as always. Oh and get the fish wire bolt leader. 616697

item attached as directed. The only thing I would change is that they provide the wire tool to help put the top two bolts in around the top attachment. I looked on youtube and etrailer had a very nice video how to install with the part number for the wire threader. 158874

We requested it be delivered ASAP and it arrived at just the right time. Product works perfect. It was easy to installand took about 1 hour without any experience with this kind to attachment. Directions to attached to vehicle were correct and easy to follow. Had to figure out the reciever attachment for my self. Not that hard to figure out. Would recommend product. 122074

Found fit for passenger side bracket was a little tight in fitting against radiator, this could be due to being a v8 Jeep Grand Cherokee. All ended well just a little aggravating that the bracket was so close on fitment. I would buy again should the need arise 100435

Put it on a 2014 Ford F150 STX 4X4 with hardly any trouble. However still need an extra part to connect the base plate to my tow bar. You may want to ask a couple more questions than I did and get all your needed parts in one shot. 170491

Etrailer once again did not disappoint. Service was fast, fairly priced, totally complete.

Again thank you etrailer and Sal who was extremely helpful. 369757

I purchased these for my new toad . I had purchased the entire towing system for my toad through etrailer I totaled my toad Sept 2018. I had to replace the 199-5 unit that bolts up to the frame of my new toad. This was the second time dealing with etrailer. Fast frendly quick service. Quality products and the sales representatives are extremely knowledgeable of all the products that they offer for your needs. I would rate etrailer Service, Sales dept and shipping dept A++. If you DEMAND Quality products and a sales representative that is extremely knowledge of all your needs. You can't go wrong with etrailer. Best Regards Ray 639676

Review from a similar Roadmaster XL in Base Plates


I purchased the Roadmaster Base Plate for our 06 Saturn Vue. The base plate fit exactly as described. Was not to hard to install. I did my self to save money. The hardest part of the job was the removal of the front air dam and cutting out the access holes for the bars, Still not to bad if you have mechanical skills. The staff at e-trailer was very helpful and answered any questions that I had. It was delivered very quickly as stated and arrived on time. If you are considering this type of project I would highly recommend e-trailer. 262472

Review from a similar Roadmaster XL in Base Plates


I just got done with the installation. Overall it was fairly straightforward, however it would have been nice if they had included pictures in the instructions. The larger bolts in the kit could have a more beveled tip like the factory bolts. This would make it much easier to get the bolts started in the holes. The photo attached is of the factory bolt for reference. Shipping was very quick, only took a few days. Price seems pretty high for these base plates. I purchased them for $360 and was even able to find a 5% off coupon online by using google. 658076

  • Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit for a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    The correct Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit for your 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee is part # 1419-7. The part # 1425-1 that you referenced actually only fits a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Attached is a picture of the finished product that a customer sent in that you can reference. For a complete flat towing setup you will also need a tow bar, safety cables, vehicle tow bar wiring, a supplemental braking system, and possibly a high-low adapter.

  • Comparing MX and XL Style Roadmaster Base Plate Kits for 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    Since you have the Falcon 2 Towbar, you can safely use the MX base plate kit, part # 1419-8. The MX style base plates take advantage of the strong frames used for trucks and SUVs. Please note, some accessories are not compatible with the MX style plates like the Guardian Rock Shied or Tow Defender. The XL base plates, part # 1419-7, will offer the most compatibility with tow bars and tow bar accessories. We typically recommend that customers use the XL style because it can be used with...

  • Base Plate Kit Recommendation that Fits 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    I have a solution for you, but the # 1419-5 is for older Jeep Grand Cherokees. From 1999 to 2000 to be specific. The XL kit you would need that does fit is the # 1419-7 instead. This will work great with the Stowmaster part # RM-501 that you referenced.

The tow bar I recommend is the Roadmaster BlackHawk 2 All Terrain, part # RM-422. This tow bar is designed for hooking up and releasing your Jeep, even on uneven ground....

    I reached out to my tech contact at Roadmaster and he said they don't have what vehicle the 1419-1 fits in their fit guide. They only have that it was listed as obsolete in 2004 so unfortunately I can't help you with that fit. The correct kit for a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee is # 1425-1. It looks like you have a model year close to that, so if you have a 2001-2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee you will want # 1419-7.

But for more frequent flat towing a more permanent solution is diode kit # 154-792-118158. The diode kit also requires a relay # RM-88400 to keep the Jeep's...
