Video Transcript for Roadmaster Base Plates - Removable Draw Bars - RM-035 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Roadmaster adaptors for Jeep D-ring bumper mounts to Roadmaster motorhome mount tow bars. This product fits a 1987-1995 Jeep YJ, 1997-2006 Jeep TJ, 1987 to current Jeep Wrangler, 2007 to current Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Now you can always use the vehicle fit guide located at etrailer.com to determine whether or not these are a fit for your vehicle. These adaptor brackets let you use your Roadmaster tow bar to tow your off-road vehicle with bumper mounted D-rings. These brackets attach to the 3/4" thick shackle mounts on the bumpers approved for flat towing. These units are constructed of a durable steel construction with a black powder coated finish designed to resist rust and corrosion, and the neat thing about this is it's a very fast and simple installation. What you need to do is you need to replace the quick-disconnects from the tow bar arms with the adaptor brackets. To do that, you take off the nut here on the bottom, remove that screw, place this over the tow bar arm, line up the holes and simply drop back down the screw and secure the lock nut on the bottom.

Then these brackets are then attached to the tow bar. Very easy to do. And then on this side, this would connect to the shackle mount on the bumper, so you'll need to remove the D-rings from your bumper, and then attach the tow bar or this bracket to the shackle mounts. It has a quick-release pin on this side, our clip, then that larger pin comes out, fit this over the mounting area, place this through and secure it on there by reinstalling that clip on the other side. That's really all there is to it. The attachment pins which are these large pins here, these will fit 7/8" and 1" diameter mounting holes.

If the diameter of the bumper mount is 1", use the included pin sleeves, they go over that part of the pin right there. If the diameter of the bumper mount is 7/8", then the sleeves do not need to be used. This system is compatible with all Roadmaster motorhome mounted towbars. That's going to do it for today's look at the Roadmaster adaptors for Jeep D-ring bumper mounts to Roadmaster motorhome mount tow bars.

Nice workmanship. Only problem is for $100+ a person would think the part would fit perfectly. Notice the piece with the hole, which attaches to the tow bar? It was not threaded to fit the bar. I used the old bar attachment fitting and will probably toss the "new" pieces. etrailer did a great job getting the part to me. 430218

These mounts are part of the excellent Roadmaster tow bar system. With these mounts I can leave the Roadmaster cross-bar in the garage and use the shackle mounts in the bumper instead. Takes a bit of creativity to arrange for safety cable connection points and a new place to hook the winch cable but these efforts are well spent in order to clean up and simplify the tow system. Kudos to Roadmaster for this item and to etrailer for making it available. This comment applies to both the RM-035 and the RM-035-1. 446010

I bought a Falcon 2 tow bar, but the height of my 2007 Duramax, was to low for the 93 YJ, (lifted 2 1/2 inch and 35 inch tires) I was towing behind. So I bought the Roadmaster High/Low adapter to get me where I needed to be. I then also wanted to simplify the connection on my front Warn bumper, because I had the D-Ring plates already there and welded in place from Warn. So I also ordered the 3/4 inch D-Ring bar adapters. Man, I have to say, this made hooking up and flat towing my YJ around, so much easier. Everything is heavy duty and made better than I thought it would be. Be careful when ordering the D-Ring adapters for your particular bumper, they make a few different sizes. Measure twice, order once. 514729

The ends are heavy, strong , well made, fit my existing tow bar and work just fine ( as advertised). I ordered them to replace another style end due to changing tow vehicles, and the mounting point style/setup on the jeep. The ends have a 1" ID measurement. On the vehicle i went with a bracket setup from Maximus-3. There a frame mounted bracket setup using U-Bolts. There a D-Ring/tow loop setup. The bracket end, or ear where pin goes thru is 3/4" wide. This leaves a 1/4" of slop when mounted, which I wasnt 100% thrilled with. So, I ended up adding a thick washer on each side to take up the 1/4" of slop. A little bit of a pain when hooking g/un-hooki g, but completely functional with no issues. I called maximus to see if they could make their bracket in 1" wide matl and they said no, not an option. Again, all in all functional.. 576057

These are what I had been looking for and they wernt even available from the manufacturer. They come with a slip in sleeve for one inch clevis tabs but are 7/8 hole and 3/4 inch wide slot. I'm using it on the falcon 2 tow bar. These ends come with slip on tips that must fit a different bar from the vendor BUT they can just be unbolted and are a direct fit to my thread on ends of my tow bar. Perfect fit! See photos of the last end pieces I tried as well from Amazon. 286061

I initially thought that these Roadmaster Falcon tow-bar adapters were expensive but, on receipt of the product, I better understood the reason for their price. The adapters are extremely well-made, ultra-strong for their intended purpose, and involve substantial and precise machining. Rather than tow a 6,000 lb maximum towing load, I believe that the adapters could safely tow an 18 wheeler truck. 578122

This piece will not work the way you said it would work. Very disappointed The falcon to towbar will not connect to these Fittings! The part that connects it to the falcon 2 Has a threaded end on it . The piece you sent me has a bolt that goes through a pipe that is approximately 1 inch. The threaded in on a falcon two is approximately 3/4 of an inch. Part totally wrong in every way 577224

. Take the round nut off of the tow bar and mark the area where the round nut attaches to the end of the tow bar inner arm. Using the shoulder bolt that comes with the kit, nylon washers and nylon lock nut attach the original round nut with the tow bar attached to the adapter. The round nut cannot be moved forwards or backwards from the area that you marked or the shoulder bolt will not fit. If the round nut has moved the shoulder bolt will not hold the round nut in place causing it to rotate.

I've been very pleased with the Falcon tow bar. It was easy to setup and is easy to use. It handles my lifted Jeep Wrangler with ease, and has worked exactly as I expected it to. I use it with RM-035 D-Ring bumper adapters, and connecting the tow bar to my Jeep's bumper shackle mounts takes but a moment. It really couldn't be much easier to hook up and go. I also like the enclosed channels that manage the safety cables and light wiring, which makes for a very clean, un-cluttered towing setup. 475971

  • Best Parts to Flat Tow a Jeep Wrangler TJ with D-Ring Adapters
  • Towing your Jeep Wrangler TJ behind your motorhome requires a tow bar, a kit to connect the tow bar to the Jeep, a lighting solution, and a braking system. You also may need a way to maintain the Jeep's battery while towing and a high-low adapter to keep the towing setup level. One of the best tow bars on the market is the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain, part # RM-676. It's a non-binding tow bar that makes it easier to connect on unlevel ground. The arms are also self-aligning to...

  • I checked with AEV and found that you can use the D-ring mounts on that bumper to flat tow the Jeep. If the D-ring mounts are 3/4 inches thick with 7/8 inch or 1 inch diameter holes you can use # RM-035 with a Roadmaster tow bar. If the D-ring mounts are 1 inch thick with 7/8 inch or 1 inch diameter holes you can use # RM-035-1. The tow bar would have to be an RV mount model such as the Falcon 2 # RM-520. The good news is that if the D-ring mounts are compatible with either of the adapters...

  • Recommended Base Plate Adapter for 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited With Off-Road Bumper
  • At this point, the only baseplate option available is the Adapter for D-ring Mounts to Roadmaster Tow Bars like # RM-035-1 for 1 inch D-ring mounts or # RM-035 for 3/4 inch D-Ring mounts. These are a fit for aftermarket bumpers only. At this time, no base plates have been tested on the 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited models with the factory bumper for fit.

  • How thick are your D-rings? We have two options that will work but you have to know the size of them. If you have 3/4 inch thick D-rings you need the part # RM-035 as an adapter or if you have 1 inch thick D-rings you need part # RM-035-1. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The most popular compatible tow bar is the Falcon 2, # RM-520. For safety cables you can use # RM-643....

  • Can D-Ring Bumper Mount Adapters be Used to Tow a Jeep Wrangler with a Stowmaster Tow Bar
  • If the D-ring bumper mounts on the Rock Crawler bumper are 3/4 inches then the Roadmaster adapters, part # RM-035, will work on the bumper. If the mounts are 1 inch then instead part # RM-035-1 is the correct size. However, neither are compatible with the Roadmaster Stowmaster tow bar. The adapters can only be used with tow bars that are mounted onto the motorhome instead of on the vehicle, like the Falcon 2, part # RM-520.

  • If you are referring to a base plate kit for your 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with the standard front bumper then I recommend the Roadmaster MX Base Plate Kit part # 1429-3. This kit has removable arms for a clean look while not in tow and it will not require a bulky crossbar like most other base plate kits. For a tow bar that will work with this kit, I recommend the Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain Tow Bar part # RM-522. This towbar has non-binding arms which makes it easy to connect and...

  • Recommended Tow Bar D-Ring Adapters for 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • If the 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has 3/4 inch thick D-ring bumper mounts, then you will need the tow bar adapter brackets # BX88303. If it has 7/8 inch diameter lug pins then you will use # BX88296 instead. Both of these are compatible with the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7365. I've attached installation details and a video to assist. Your other option would be to get the Roadmaster Adapter for Jeep D-Ring Bumper Mounts to Roadmaster Motor Home Mount Tow Bars - 3/4" Thick # RM-035...

  • Adapter to Use Roadmaster Falcon Tow Bar with Jeep Bumper with D-Rings
  • There are 3 Falcon tow bars: The discontinued Falcon 5250, the Falcon 2 # RM-520, and the Falcon All-Terrain, # RM-522. You would need a different adapter for the Falcon line of tow bars since the Blue Ox adapter is only for Blue Ox tow bars. If the tabs on the D-ring mounts are 1 inch thick with either a 7/8 inch or 1 inch diameter pin hole then you can use # RM-035-1. If the tabs are 3/4 inches thick with a 7/8 or 1 inch pin hole then use # RM-035 instead. I have linked videos on both...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 1994 and 1997 Jeep Wrangler Behind a Class C Motorhome
  • The Bulldog Stubby Bumper # BDW21000 is not rated for flat towing. I spoke to Bulldog about using it to flat tow and they said they haven't tested it long-term in that fashion but if the bumper is reinforced it could be used. It is confirmed to fit both the 1994 and 1997 Jeep Wranglers you have. The Bulldog Stubby bumper has 3/4 inch shackles so you can use the Roadmaster Adapters # RM-035 to connect to a tow bar. The tow bar I recommend is the Roadmaster Falcon 2 # RM-520 and safety...

  • Can Roadmaster Night Hawk Tow Bar Be Used with D-Rings on Jeep Wrangler
  • The Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain Tow Bar # RM-676 (excellent choice) will hook up to the D-ring hooks on your Jeep's aftermarket bumper as long as you use the appropriate adapter. If your D-rings are 1 inch thick you will need part # RM-035-1 and if they are 3/4 inch thick you will need # RM-035. These will attach to the D-ring mounts to provide a connection point for the tow bar. I do also recommend verifying that your particular aftermarket bumper is rated for towing. I have...

  • Which Adapters Work with the Bulldog Stubby Front Bumper Part # BDW21000 for a 2005 Jeep TJ
  • Yes, the Bulldog Stubby Front Bumper part # BDW21000 for your 2005 Jeep TJ is rated for flat-towing. Unfortunately, there is no way around using an adapter as none of the towbars will come off the shelf ready to couple to this bumper. You will need to use an adapter like part # BX88303 for Blue Ox tow bars or part # RM-035 for Roadmaster tow bars. For a Blue Ox tow bar I recommend using the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar part # BX7365 which has a 6,500 lb weight capacity and comes with safety...

  • Maximum Spacing for Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar
  • I reached out to my contact at Roadmaster and he said that the Falcon 2 Tow Bar # RM-520 has a maximum base plate/D-ring mount spacing of 33 inches (and a minimum of 26 inches). If the D-rings on your Jeep are spaced apart by 33 inches the Falcon 2 Tow Bar will work great. If you have 1 inch thick D-rings you will need part # RM-035-1 and for 3/4 inch thick D-rings you will use # RM-035.

  • How To Use a Tow Bar With a Poison Spyder/Smittybilt Front Bumper on a 2018 Jeep JK Wrangler
  • I do have an option for you but the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit part # RM-521448-5 is designed to be used with the factory front bumper on a 2018 Jeep JK Wrangler only. Unfortunately, Roadmaster does not test this base plate kit with aftermarket bumpers so there would be no way to confirm fit on the brands you mentioned (Poison Spyder/Smittybilt). I took a look at both the Smittybilt 76744 SRC Carbine Front Bumper and the Poison Spyder 17-59-010DBP1 Brawler Lite Front Bumper....

  • Recommendations for Flat Towing a 2017 Jeep Wrangler with a Barricade HD Bumper
  • From the research I did online it looks like your Smittybilt tow bar is compatible with the D-Rings on your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Sport with the Barricade HD Bumper. If your Smittybilt tow bar is not compatible with the D-Rings then you can use the Roadmaster D-Ring Adapter # RM-035 for Off-Road bumper - with 3/4 inch D-Ring bumper mounts or D-Ring Adapter # RM-035-1 for Off-Road bumper - with 1 inch D-Ring bumper mounts along with a Roadmaster Tow Bar like the Falcon All Terrain # RM-522...

  • Parts Needed To Flat-Tow a 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
  • In order to flat-tow a 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon with all four wheels on the ground behind a motor home you are going to need a tow bar, base plate kit, safety cables, tail light wiring harness, supplemental braking system, and possibly a high-low adapter. There may also be a few other smaller components that are needed depending on options the vehicle is equipped with. For a tow bar, I recommend the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain Tow Bar part # RM-676. The Nighthawk is one of the...

  • Ways to Flat Tow a 1993 Jeep Wrangler with Aftermarket Front Bumper
  • We currently have two d-ring bumper adapters which are the Adapter for Jeep D-Ring Bumper Mounts part # RM-035 for 3/4" thick or part # RM-035-1 for 1" thick. These adapters are for factory bumpers with d-rings that are suited for flat towing. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend you modify the bumper or these adapters in any way as this would void the manufacturer's warranty and pose a significant safety risk. I would also make sure that the d-rings on the front of your aftermarket bumper...

  • Demco Excali-bar Compatibility With Roadmaster D-Ring Adapters RM-035

However, the Roadmaster D-ring Adapters are not confimed to fit a Rugged Ridge XHD bumper, so if that is the model you have there are not base plates confirmed to fit.

  • Can the ReadyBrake ReadyBrute Elite/Hercules Tow Bar Be Used with D-Rings
  • I do have an option for you but the Adapters for Jeep D-Ring Bumper Mounts part # RM-035 are only compatible with RoadMaster tow bars therefore will not work with a ReadyBrake ReadyBrute Elite or Hercules tow bar. It also doesn't look like ReadyBrake offers an adapter for the d-rings therefore you have two options. You can install a standard base plate kit like the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit part # BX1120 with the Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Brackets for Ready Brute Elite Tow Bars part # BX88297...
