The Jeep project went very well everything fit great and worked well. I really love Roadmaster products and quality and your company is the best place to purchase them. I sold the Jeep and replaced it with a new 2019 Chevy Equinox 2.0 L AWD and just purchased and installed the following items from you and installed them, RM-156-25 & RM-156-75 Battery Charge Line Kit, RM-146-7 Flex Coil Kit, RM-523193-4 EZ4 Plate Kit, RM-88333 Custom Seat Adapter, RM-751489 Stop Light Switch Kit and a RM-98160 Second Vehicle Brake Kit w/brakeaway. All these parts were in stock and arrived quickly and normal with you people, I really enjoy the o-line vidios as I do all my own installs. Thank you so much for your great service. I will attach pictures of my install, you will see how I was able to fab a bracket and attach it to the existing mount on the base plate to mount the brakeaway switch and the air connection for the brake system. I also fabricated a tail light bar as I didn't want to use mag-lights or splice into the factory lights and bulbs installed into the lights would not work as the factory brake lights will come on when the brake system is applyed and the turn siginals would not be visable. Thanks for all you do, I would and do recommend you people to everyone who needs your products. Rob

Everything is working great, I installed a base plate kit, battery charging kit, stop light switch kit, second vehicle air brake kit w brakeaway and seat adapter on our 2019 Chevy Equinox and towed it about 14000 miles behind our motor home this past year and everything worked perfect not a problem with any product. These are great products, everything fit perfectly and performed perfectly. Thank you for great service and great products. Rob

I am not quick to review a product, it's been over a year since I purchased and install this hitch. After using this for a year, I found this to be excellent. Absolutely no problems. My wife and I installed it with no problems at all,,, easy to do. The videos was detailed, letting feel comfortable in doing the job. Sadly, selling the vehicle,, now we don't have it any longer. However,,, With our new vehicle, I am again going to purchase from this same company. This fit our 2004 Jeep Wrangler X

well I finally put my tow bar base plate on. I'm 82 years old so I had my doubts as to weather I could do this so I checked out a location that could have one this job for me but they wanted a hundred and fifteen dollars an hour labor so I said to hell with that . I looked at the directions that you sent with the Base Plate and said to myself, I can do this. Well I did it. Your instructions were dead on and I had no problem at all, In fact I hade a little fun doing it. Thanks a lot It's going to be great.

The base plate was as described, very good quality product. Install was easy, instructions were easy to follow.

Review from a similar EZ4 Base Plate in Base Plates


I ordered this base plate to be installed on our 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited to allow it to be used with a Roadmaster Tow Bar that we purchased originally in early 2000 to tow our 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Yes, 20 years later we are back into RVing and wanted to tow our 2020 Jeep behind our new Jayco Seneca Super-C motorhome. The only difference between 2000 and 2020 is the fact that we needed a brake activation system for our 2020 setup, something that wasn’t required in 2000. Etrailer also sold us the Roadmaster Invisi Brake operating system which we had our local welding fabricator (also RV hitch installation expert) instal. Everything works perfectly and safely. Thank you Etrailer!

Review from a similar EZ4 Base Plate in Base Plates


The base plates were easy to install (great step by step installation instructions)- it is an easy configuration for towing the vehicle. The attaching plates are well hidden from view when not in towing configuration- It is so simple to install the attaching hardware to the base plates sand fool proof -you will know you have the attaching plates properly installed every you use them-


Comments
due to the current pandemic- we have not use the product as we intended-we have use it for several miles for towing our truck- so far it shows to hold its torque and stability-little bet of rust between base plates and engagement parts- i an happy with the hardware as it was recommended by your staff- Installation instructions were impeccable- reminded me of assembly instructions for critical hardware- i am happy with its performance so far

Review from a similar EZ4 Base Plate in Base Plates


Hobbyist/Do-it-yourselfer: Installed on my 2016 Ford Fiesta. I was honestly amazed at how simple it was to install this product. Highly recommend watching the video on this sight that is specific to your vehicle before purchasing though. The installation process is pretty involved, and I had to take the entire front end of my car apart. It does come with very detailed installation instructions with pictures included for each step. This reassured any questions that I may have had during the installation process. It has a very snug fit. I only had problems lining up one of the bolt holes, but that was easily corrected with my Dremel. Only advice: Don't try to pry the bar into place through the bolt holes. You can/will damage the threads if you try to do this. Just use a Dremel to widen the hole on the car's crash bar very slightly. Widening the hole a small amount won't have any negative effects on the structural support of your crash bar, and it will make it even easier to install the inserted bracket.


Comments
After one year, this product has proven to be well worth the expense. We flat-towed our 2016 Ford Fiesta all the way across the country without any issues. The product worked exactly as described, and was very user friendly. Highly recommended.

Best hitch system for ease of use, durability and value. I tow a Chevy Equinox. I chose the Roadmaster all terrain hitch with an invisibrake system the previous installed. The base plate is not too difficult to install with a drill and some basic hand tools. The bolts should be properly torqued. Red thread locker is also required

Review from a similar EZ4 Base Plate in Base Plates


Anna at etrailer was most helpful getting me the correct baseplate for a Roadmaster Tow Bar I had purchased used. Very knowledgeable in the product line and recommending what parts I would need to complete my towing installation. The Roadmaster product was a perfect fit, had all the neccessary hardware parts and did not require any modifications to install it. etrailer also made several onlinr videos further showing how to install the products they sell you. The finished installation is almost invisible leaving the car looking stock until the connectors are twisted in and the cross bar installed. Great buying experience and competitive pricing keeps me returning to etrailer.

Review from a similar EZ4 Base Plate in Base Plates


Great product for my 2014 Wrangler. Good materials, solid attachment to vehicle, and looks good. The e trailer installation video was great for assisting installation. Made the install much quicker and easier. The most difficult procedure for me was disconnecting the wiring harness on the back of the bumper. An old tack puller (or tool of similar design) would have been great for leveraging the pins out of their holes. Cutting the air dam was a slow process to ensure I didn't cut too much. A paper template to mark where to cut the air dam would make this process much simpler. Again, I can't emphasize enough how great the installation video was for making the steps easier.

This item works great. Have towed about 4500 miles using it. I couldnt be happier with the results.

  • Can a Jeep Wrangler be Flat Towed by the Front Bumper
    I have a solution for you, however, I would not recommend mounting a tow bar directly to a bumper on a Jeep, whether it is OEM or an aftermarket bumper. Jeep does not recommend towing the Wrangler with the OEM bumper because it was not designed to pull the weight of the vehicle. Also, mounting a tow bar to a bumper would require drilling.
