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 Plates - Removable Draw Bars - RM-521448-4 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Roadmaster Easy 4 base plate kit with removable arms. Now, the Roadmaster Easy 4 twist lock series brackets are going to be virtually invisible on your vehicle. They're very easy to mount and simple to remove. The receiver base, which is this long bar here with all the mounting points, that's going to mount to the frame of your vehicle and then the brackets are these 2 components up here. These are going to install to the receiver base to provide attachment points for your tow bar. The brackets can easily be removed when not in use, which is going to give your vehicle a very very clean look.

This product is designed to fit certain years and models of the Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Limited that aren't equipped with after market bumpers, winches, and guards. The hidden bracket design of the unit is going to provide improved aesthetics compared with standard brackets. The Easy 4 brackets are going to sit even further back than Roadmaster Easy and Easy 2 brackets, which is going to give your vehicle supremely clean look. The draw bars attach and remove quickly and easily. The arms are going to lock into place in the brackets. Then on each side, you're going to notice that we have a built in pull ring.

That's going to let you unlock the arms so you can twist and remove them easily from the main unit right here, the bar that mounts to the frame. All you have to do is pull on that pin, rotate the bracket, and then it removes from the unit very easily. To install it, just make sure the bracket's rotated sideways. Push it in, rotate, and then you'll hear it snap into place. That means that it's locked to the main unit. Really nice design.

Very easy to use. Very quick to use. When we're looking at the construction of the unit, it's going to be a computer cut all steel construction, which is going to provide exceptional strength and durability. Everything that's steel is going to have a nice, black powder coat finish on it, making it very strong and durable, as well as highly resistant towards rust and corrosion. On the ends, there's going to be little holes.

This point right here is located on the same point on the other side. That's going to be an attachment point for your safety chains. That way you can easily get those connected. When it comes to the installation of the unit, it's a pretty simple installation, meaning that this does not require any welding. The custom base plates ensure a perfect fit for your vehicle. This is going to come with very detailed instructions as well as all the mounting hardware that's necessary for your installation. Now, when installing this, it does require that you remove the 6 plastic fasteners attaching the air dam to the fascia, and it's going to require a little bit of trimming of the air dam for the brackets to come through. The unit's also going to include a mounting plate. That's going to be this little unit right here. This attaches to the rods with the supplied hardware, and that's going to provide an attachment point for your electrical plug, that way it's easily accessible here at the front of the unit. This is compatible with quick disconnect and all Roadmaster tow bars. Now, one of the things I want to just mention and explain, is you're going to notice these rods that are attached to the vacuum plates. That's these 4 pieces right here. The rods will be removed after they're installed. They're simply there to make installation and placement of the backing plates easier. Again, the unit's a very strong, durable design. It includes all the necessary hardware. They do recommend using some Lock Tite on the hardware. That's not included with the kit, so you will need to provide that separately. Again, very strong, durable design. Easy to use. Simple to install when compared to other units. The product is going to be made right here in the USA. That's going to do it for today's look at the Roadmaster Easy 4 base plate kit with the removable arms.

All was delivered and I have installed it. Only thing wrong with the RM-521448-4 Roadmaster Crossbar-Style base plate kit was that one of the 1-*1/2" x 3"threaded backing plate would not tighten down. Had to toss it and put in heavy duty washer and Nut and tighten it down. Otherwise great product and easy to install. 658514

I’ve towed my Jeep Wrangler, using this base plate and Roadmaster Falcon 2 tow bar, over 5000 miles and it has performed flawlessly. 572901

I purchased this EZ4 base plate to work in conjunction with the Falcon2 tow bar. It fit perfectly on my Wrangler Unlimited, and is tucked mostly out of site when not used. The two baseplate arms bolted to the cross bar of the Falcon2 are easily removed and stored away when not in use. Installation because of the weight and tight fit to the Wrangler frame, was found to be much easier with two people. 554274

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. 126011

Bought this product from etrailer with free shipping it was cheaper than I could get in town.. The baseplates are perfect for our 2014 Jeep Wrangler and our stowmaster 5000 tow bar. The unit is built to last with heavy steel plate and nice welds. Installation is pretty easy, you just have to remove the plastic air dam, and trim it up. Etrailer has a great video going over the install. I am pretty picky, and I didn't care for the way Roadmaster has you cut the air dam. If you take your time and look at photos of the way they cut it when you have your air dam off you can make it look much better. I have enclosed pictures of my install so you can see the difference. I am very happy with the ez-4 baseplates and etrailer 365012

etrailer service was great. Received my Roadmaster base plate in 3 days. The directions from Roadmaster were fair, but etrailer's video was excellent. I had trouble mounting my base plate as the space between the two baseplate ends were too tight. I needed to use a floor jack and bottle jack to get it on. Once it was in position everything went together fine. I trimmed the Jeep' air dam differently keeping the ends that Roadmaster wants you to cut off. I think it looks better. I also had to modify the center cut in the air dam to accommodate the breakaway switch I have. 447255

Ordered for a customer's Jeep Wrangler. Arrived quicker than expected which allowed us to get the guy on his way 3 days sooner than scheduled. The install went OK. Some variations from what was expected. Had to drill a couple of holes. The plastic valence didn't want to go back under the jeep because of the mount plate interference, but we made it work. The tow bar bolted up perfectly. All in all, very good. Happy customer. Thanks! 511261

Well built, took about 3 1/2 hrs to install including cutting valance to fit . Only problem with instructions are , if your frame doesn’t have both holes at the top for the 5 1/2 bolt , you can’t drill the holes through from the inside without an angle drill. Also your dimensions on cutting the valance are way off. Suggest measuring for yourself before cutting !! I did. 505889

The base plate kit install was straight forward with few problems. I would urge other installers to clean out the threads of all the nuts and verify that the bolts screw in easily. I had the wire break off prematurely on a top nut and was very fortunate to be able to resolve this dilemma. I also took the time to cut my rock guard more precisely so as to not remove any more than necessary. 280951

The install was easy enough but you need the right tools. Not for your average homeowner but if you are persistant you can do it . The hardest part was getting off the bumper and a trip to the tool store.

I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 only because of documentation. Need a video for the E4 bracket installation on a 2010 Jeep Wrangler. I did it all ... a diode wiring kit ... the tow bar and bracket installation ... and converted the Motorhome from a separate to a combined wiring system while adding a charge wire ... it took me two days. Very happy with the quality of the tow bar and bracket. 228917

  • Difference Between Roadmaster EZ4 and EZ5 Base Plates for 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • Both the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit # RM-521448-4 and EZ5 Base Plate Kit # RM-521448-5 will fit on your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The primary difference between the two designs is the way they attach to the tow bar. The EZ5 does not use the quick-connect crossbar which provides a cleaner look, but prevents you from using some accessories that mount to the crossbar such as a Rock Guard like the Roadmaster # RM-4000.

The fixed arm kits aren't seen much on newer vehicles as that's an older design that Roadmaster is getting away from since most people much prefer the removable arm setups. The removable arm setups are preferred because when not flat towing the front of the vehicle won't have two arms hanging...

  • Difference Between Roadmaster EZ5 and EZ4 Base Plates For 2016 Jeep Wrangler

I would go with the EZ5 if it were me since not having to use the crossbar is just one less thing to worry about. 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....

  • For your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Sport, since you already have your Roadmaster StowMaster Tow Bar, # RM-501, we will start with your base plate needs.

  • Recommended Complete Flat Towing System For 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

  • Base Plate Kit Recommendation for 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with Roadmaster Tow Bar
  • As long as the bumper on your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is the standard factory bumper the Roadmaster Kit part # RM-521448-4 that you referenced would be the correct kit.

  • Fitting the Roadmaster Tow Bar Adapter # RM-032 to Roadmaster Base Plate Kit 1432-1
  • I believe the problem that you are seeing is that you do not have the arms for your Roadmaster base plate kit. You can order new arms by going using part # RM-ARMS and filling out the replacement arms form. Once you have the replacement arms you will then have a fully functioning base plate kit like part # RM-521448-4 which replaced the kit 1432-1 that you mentioned. This will then allow you to use the Roadmaster Tow Bar Adapter # RM-032 with your Blue Ox Aventa II tow bar.

You will need a tow bar, base plates for the towed vehicle, safety cables, lighting for the towed vehicle, and most states now require a supplemental brake system.

  • Will EZ Hook Safety Cable Anchors Fit Roadmaster MX Base Plates on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler
  • You would only be able to use the EZ Hook safety cable anchors # RM-910653 if you were also using the crossbar that comes with Roadmaster tow bars. This bar is not used with MX base plates so you cannot use the EZ Hook safety cable anchors. You can instead use them with the EZ4 base plates # RM-521448-4 which also fit your 2014 Jeep Wrangler.

  • Will Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit Work With Roadmaster Tracker Tow Bar
  • The EZ4 Base Plate Kit, Item # RM-521448-4, will fit your 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and is compatible with the Roadmaster Tracker Tow Bar, Item # RM-020. The Tracker is a solid but more basic and "budget friendly" tow bar that may not meet your needs. I recommend considering a non-binding tow bar like the Sterling All-Terrain, Item # RM-576, or the Falcon All-Terrain, Item # RM-522, because they have greater flexibility which will give you an overall better flat-towing experience....

  • Tow Bar Compatibility with Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plates
  • The Roadmaster Tracker Tow Bar - 2" Ball - 5,000 lbs # RM-020 is not compatible with the EZ5 Base Plate # RM-521448-5. The Roadmaster EZ5 series base plates will only work with Roadmaster tow bars that slide into a trailer hitch and will not work with tow bars that require a hitch ball. For a compatible tow bar, I recommend the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,000 lbs # RM-520 which would not require the crossbar for this combination.
