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

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.

Video Transcript for Roadmaster Base Plate Installation - 2006 Jeep Commander

Today on 2006 Jeep Commander, we're going to install a base plate kit from Roadmaster, product number RM-1427-1. The first thing we're going to do is go ahead and open up the hood and remove six plastic fasteners across the top and the grill. To remove the grill, we simply pull up in the center. You may pick up on the side a little bit and it unsnaps. Now, we're going to remove the four fasteners that connect the bumper, cover, to the core support. Alright, we'll remove the tubes, bolts attaching the fascia to the radiator support.

We're going to remove these three plastic rivets here and drill them out or you can pry them apart and cut them. Alright, the next thing we're going to do is pull out the fender flare. Now, we already have them from the part. To pull the part, you had to reach behind the bumper fascia and squeeze these tabs together. Next thing we're going to do is go ahead and disconnect fog light wire harness.

There's a little tab on there. You got to pull back on and then it slides apart. At this point, we can go ahead and remove the bumper fascia. We definitely have it an extra set of hands to help do this. We'll pull out on the fender flare to give some clearance and we pull straight out.

The bumper fascia fits in the side gear. Sometimes there's a little catch in there. We use to put a screwdriver and just give a little twist to spread it apart and it pop right out. Next thing we do, we remove the frame caps right here. Next, we can remove the tow hooks.

Remove these three bolts here. These studs have to be removed as well. These little clips right here, we'd squeeze it and just push it up. Now, Brett is going to install here and here and we have enlarged these two holes out to half-inch size. Now, we're going to take the slap plate that we're going to install inside the bumper structure. We'll slip it in through here. Make sure that the holes line up and the block doesnt have a slight offset to match the slight offset in the bumper structure, ok And there is hole behind the bumper structure and begin to install the inch and a quarter bolts. Now, we'll go ahead and install the receiver brace. We're just going to slide it underneath the frame rail and into the bolts that we put into the bumper structure, alright Now, we're going to leave our bolts just finger tight for now because we'd still move around to line up the remaining bolts. We'll repeat the same process or go to the driver side one more time and over on the passenger side. When we install our bolts for the frame rail, we're going to start from the farthest one back from the center and walk away towards the front. We're going to run this 2-inch long bolt and lock washer up through the bracket and into the hole that's in the frame, and we'll run the bolt into this handle nut right here with the round plate. Alright, now, we're going to drill one more hole out. Now, this hole that's existing at the bottom of the frame, we're going to drill to this section that's in the middle of the frame. That's the part we have to drill out. And this spacer will be set between the bottom of the frame and the inner part of the frame. Now, we may have to bend this out of the way or trim the spacer down which anyway is the easiest to get that in place. And we're run the bolt into this handle nut right here. Now, we're going to install our hardware for our last tool. We're going to use this bolt, this plate, lock washer and the nut. Alright, we got all the hardware installed and it's still loose. Now, we'll go ahead and repeat the same process over along the passenger side. All the fasteners are loosely installed. Now, we can go ahead and snug all the bolts down, then we'll torque them down as the inaudible in the instructions. Now, we can go ahead and reinstall the caps at the end of the frame. Now, we put our bumper cover back on and do a test fit to the inaudible receiver arms. We have to cut out some of the plastic right here and we'll use this dimension right here and the receiver arm is about the right length. So let's make some marks to give us our height. And now also, the tab behind the plastic for our safety chain cable makes thing easier to get to, we're going to cut out just a little more and go all the way down and have room for that. Basically, we'll go ahead and scour the plastic and cut through it, which is then with a clean edge. The last thing to install is our quick link and our safety cable. Install the receiver arms and we just got to install our pins. We are finished for install and there you have it, the product number 1427-1 from Roadmaster.

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

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

The tow bar adapter kit came late as it had to be ordered from the factory which was not really a problem as I was gone on vacation, but a representative from etrailer was in contact with me keeping me informed.

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

I have mounted four different Roadmaster brackets in the passed but this model had some serious problems. The drivers side bracket attached to my 2001 Jeep TJ very easily per the instructions. The passenger side bracket on the other hand had serious engineering deficiencies. None of the mounting holes matched up to the vehicle frame. Two of the bracket holes needed to be enlarged to engage. The back hole was very difficult aligning the inside required drilled hole with the outside slotted opening. Near impossible to enlarge a slotted frame opening. May be fine for a fully equipped shop with all the tools required but not so much for the home mechanic. I'd still recommend these brackets but know what your getting into. 452768

Would have been 5 stars except for price - yikes! But it appears to be plenty sturdy. Removing the old bolts was by far the hardest part of the installation. I can't blame the new part for that. As can be seen in the pictures the pasenger side bumper trim piece interferes a bit with the plate. I believe I can trim the facia for a better fit. Also note the slotted opening on the passenger side. It installs easily, but when the tow bar plate is installed, this needs to be loosened and pursuaded into a better position. I appreciate etrailer's help in getting the right part. 192683

Good information and prompt shipping. Base plate is solid and install and use instructions are excellent. Be warned that product install is drill two holes and install 3 bolts, BUT the entire front panel has to be removed and replaced. Not difficult, but time-consuming. Seat bracket is solid and install and use instructions are excellent. Brakemaster kit is good quality, but instructions are not as good as most Roadmaster products. Instructions for air line install are especially weak. 167660

Review from a similar Roadmaster XL in Base Plates


I used to tow our dinghy, a cherry 1997 Miata, with a car dolly; finally realized it was a case of overkill. The dolly is over half the weight of the car and wider than the motor home! On our last expedition to the Canadian Rockies, I got to talking with a fellow camper who told me how cool and easy it was to tow his dinghy with tow bars. Now, for the tow bar conversion: Removing the Miata's fascia, radiator air scoop and bottom engine cover is not difficult, as the fasteners are relatively easy to get to. After removing (and discarding) the two tie-down loops and discarding the four screws holding the front anti-sway bar, the installation of the base plates is straight-forward (it fits into those holes - who knew?). The fit of the kit to the car's frame is precise, with plenty of adjustment space, if needed. The only fabrication required is removal of some material from the air scoop where it comes into contact with the installed base plates. Reinstalling the fascia, I "shoe-horned" it over the base plate, with the help of silicon spray. Fortunately, the fascia is very flexible. Unless you look for them, the base plate receivers are not a prominent feature of the front end. 239008

I needed to set up our 1998 Toyota RAV4 for dinghy towing. Etrailer.com had everything I needed. The Roadmaster 1142-3 base plates fit as designed and were fairly easy to install, the only body modification needed was trimming the splash pans around the engine for the ends of the mounts. I had to point them out to my wife after installation, they are very discreet when not in use. The Roadmaster 910021-00 QD towbar assembly will make connecting to our RV a breeze, and the RM-98100 second vehicle kit had all the connectors and tubing to install my Brakemaster and BrakeAway cylinders. The long leads on the HM20014 breakaway switch meant I needed fewer wire connectors, and the FA80-01-2160 coiled cable will provide a more finished look when not towing the Toy. I decided to not complicate my life any more than necessary, and selected the EZT20B tow light kit instead of a magnetic kit due to the convertible top on our RAV4. The customer service people at etrailer.com were quick to answer my questions about wiring options, kept me informed when I had a delay, and the shipping/delivery times were unbelievable. Here in Wisconsin I received my orders in TWO DAYS! 233399

Review from a similar Roadmaster XL in Base Plates


First off it wasn't a "5 minute job". Took me probably 3.5 hours or so on my back in the garage, but I took my time especially with the cutting/trimming of the lower valance on the front bumper. I did not want to cut too much & have big gaping holes in the bumper. All in all it went well. To cut & trim the bumper I simply used a bare hack saw blade, Dremel tool, file & razor knife The picture in the instructions of where to cut a hole at the back of the fog light recess is a little puzzling until you get the light out & locate the tie-down bracket bolt that needs to be removed. You'll need to make the hole larger because the replacement bolt has a 17mm head on it instead of the stock 14mm hex head. Wasn't real happy about how much they had me hack off the panel under the engine. Probably should have looked that on my own rather than use their crudely drawn lines in the picture. I was able to drill the 1/2" hole for the 5 1/2" long rear bolt with a regular length drill bit. Just drill as straight as you can using the little square hole in the frame rail as your guide. It seemed to take forever to get to the required torque of 56 '/lbs on the long bolts. I suspect that's because the frame rail actually crushes a little bit. I want to point out 1 drawback to the brackets that I noticed. If you're using a tow bar that has a cross plate between the 2 bracket bar inserts (like I am), you can not pull the removable inserts out with the cross bracket attached. They're NOT parallel to one another, so when you're home & no longer in "tow mode" you'll have to unbolt one side in order to remove the bars. Otherwise a well made product. Haven't actually towed the car yet though. 180908

I ordered these brackets to tow my Jeep Wrangler behind my motorhome. Having used this brand before I knew the quality I would get and was not disappointed. The original order had 2 left side brackets and no right side brackets so after a call to customer support the correct part was sent. They even gave me a follow-up call to make sure I was taken care of. Mistakes happen but how a company responds to those mistakes is what really matters. These are people you can count on. I am a customer for life. 690379

I installed this baseplate on my 2003 Honda CRV myself. It was a challenge for an inexperienced mechanic but successful in spite of that. Following the clear instructions, the unit fit well into the CRV chassis. Installing it myself has also given me confidence in towing that I may not have had by giving that task to someone else. I wired the CRV and RV 6 way and 7 way connectors including power to charge the CRV's battery while towing. After towing the car for several thousand miles, I am very satisfied with the base plate, tow bar, and installation. 679192

Although it has taken me several weeks to install on my Ford Escape XLT, it actually arrived very quickly.. If you have minimal skills like I do, you can still install this yourself. It took me about 6 hours. The only glitches I found in the directions was the location of the ambient temperature sensor and the need to cut down part of the air foil. Due to the location of the sensor, I did not need to do anything with it and it was not necessary to make any cuts. Neither caused me any distress. The biggest challenge was having to enlarge a couple of holes and " fish" bolts through them due to the lack of welded nuts as indicated in the directions. If you lack the tools and/or know how to do these jobs, it might be better to have someone install it for you. 673102

  • Base Plate Kit Compatibility with 2004 and Surrounding Years Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • 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. If you have a 2005 model, you will want # 1427-1 which also fits 2006-2010 models...

  • Base Plates for 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Compatible with Sterling Tow Bar
  • Roadmaster Base Plate kit # 1427-1 is a correct fit for your 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited so long as it is NOT the SRT-8 version and does NOT have a brush guard installed.

  • Recommended Tow Bar Wiring For 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • I called my contact at Hopkins and asked about your 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee. They told me that you can look on the door jamb of your Jeep for a sticker that should have the manufacture date. If your Jeep was built from January to mid June then it is the early year model and the correct harness is part # HM56206.
