Roadmaster Base Plates - 1430-1

  • 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.

2008 Jeep Wrangler

Installed on our 2008 Wrangler JK. Install was fairly easy. We tow the Jeep behind a 31' Class C Motorhome. Installation of tow bar brackets was very easy. The only thing I don't like is the square channel on both receiver brackets is larger than the removable front bracket arms which creates more play and potentially more ware on the front bracket arm and/or the square channel on the receiver bracket. I have monitored the parts on a two and half month trip last fall and will continue to monitor it for ware. Overall I'm very pleased with the part. 756296

Had my local favorite mechanic install these and since it was the first time for him, took a little extra time (and he had to buy the special drill bit), but they work fine and fit the crossbar just fine. 330523

The products I ordered from "etrailer" arrived ahead of time and were exactly as described. The sales people at "etrailer" emailed to let me know when I could expect my order and then emailed a follow-up to make sure all was okay with the order! I would definitely order from "etrailer" again. 114538

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

Was very easy for me to install. Have mechanical background. Used 1/2" cordless impact. Bought 3 new milwaukee titanium drill bits. To step up to hole size. I would say in all I spent an hour and a half in a parking lot hooking up a disabled 2008 Chevy Silverado. I followed the video on YouTube. They were several, plus, etrailer.com had a lot of information. Hooked up towmaster bar to 3/4 ton 2020 2500 GMC diesel. The 2008 Silverado towed behind the GMC I didn't know it was there. 912323

Super pleased with the service that I received as far as getting the order and it being what was advertised. Perfect fit. I must say that the instruction video was very helpful but I’m sure that the ease of putting the blind nuts up inside the frame must have been shot many times as it was way more difficult than the video showed. Also Amy E was so helpful in getting everything to me in a timely manner. Thanks 897712

2012 Toyota Tacoma Pre-Runner. The product is a perfect fit. Installation was easy and the only item I needed in addition to the tools was the red Locktite (RED not Blue - and don't go cheap here). The hardest part of the install was remove the plastic bumper :-) Be sure to read ALL the instructions before you start the install... unless you want to uninstall and reinstall ;-). Oh, and contrary to the instructions, no cutting of the plastics needed. 896892

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 1995 Jeep Wrangler with a Roadmaster Sterling Tow Bar
    For the 1995 Jeep Wrangler with the U-channel bumper you can use base plates # 1409-3 with your Sterling tow bar.

Magnetic light kit # SPL30B-6 uses a 6-Way connector if you do not already have a light kit. In additional to the base plates, tow bar, safety cables, and lights, most states now require a supplemental braking system on the vehicle being flat...

  • Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Compatible with 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK
    We do have the correct baseplate kit but the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # 1430-1 is not a fit for your 2018 Jeep Wrangler. You instead will want the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # RM-521448-4. This is a fit for standard factory bumper applications and is not compatible with the Hard Rock, Winter or 75th Anniversary models. This is a fit for the JK versions.
