The drawbars, or front arms, on the crossbar-style series base plate kit are supremely easy to mount and remove. Just insert them into the brackets and twist to lock them in place. To remove each arm, simply tug the built-in pull pin to disengage the lock, twist the arm back and pull it out of the bracket. 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.

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

Amazing how much bulk there is to this base compared to the base I used on my Pickup truck. Going to get them mounted on the new vehicle and give them a test soon 572894

I installed the trailer hitch first and it was quite simple, total time about 1 hour. Next I installed the EZ4 base plate kit on our 2017 GMC Terrain, a little bit more difficult, but the step by step video made the whole process much simpler, in fact, I kept my laptop in the garage while I was doing the installation and stopped/started as it did the work. I can't thank you enough for the video clips, they are a tremendous help. We will be leaving in a week or so, can't wait to try it out. 515670

This is the adapter kit i needed for my 2019 Jeep Cherokee to flat tow it behind my Class A Motorhome. At the time I first ordered this kit the factory still had to finish the design process as we had purchased the Jeep when it came out in 2018. It took about 6 weeks for the factory to call me to say it was done and could be ordered. My RV mechanic installed it and it went very well according to him. I towed the Jeep this weekend and it worked flawlessly. It replaces the tow hooks on the front of the Jeep. Everything arrived very quickly and in perfect order from etrailer. 694234

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

Very Happy! The shipping was fast; 3 days, including Thanks Giving. I was able to instal the base plat myself, just following the installation video on their web site. I watched it a couple of times while I was waiting for delivery, and then followed it step by step during installation. I wouldn't have dared attempt it myself without the video. I also installed the Tail Light Wiring Kit with Bulbs-RM-155 using the same method. Everything went without a problem. I will be buying from eTrailer again. 588968

Installed it myself on a 2017 Ford Focus. Watched a few videos on how to pull front bumper and install mount. The hardest part was making the holes in the steel front bumper. I like the fact I can remove the outside mounts that the hitch mounts to. I’ve pulled the car about 5,000 miles behind the rv with no problems. 698216

The units went on my Chevy truck great and they work well the only problem is I can't take off my tow bar unless I unbolt it from the base plates so I have to leave the unit on all the time. It would take 4 bolts to remove . Then I could unlock the base plates and turn them in order to remove them. 443465


Comments

The Base Plates are performing as expected, unfortunately chipping paint has plagued these Base Plates. This chipping paint has occurred along both of the leading edge of where the tow bar mounts. This has not been caused from abuse/misuse, it started happening soon after began using. Should not have happened so soon. 710582

After one year, I continue to be very pleased with my Base plate kit for my Lincoln MKZ. Etrailer delivered it quickly and the instructions on installation were great, enabling me to install it myself with little difficulty. Very happy with the plate and eTrailer. 902464

very easy to install by myself in about an hour. all holes were already in the frame except for the 2 for the front lower cross bar. mine is a 2011 jeep other years may have them. Easy to drill had plenty of access room and easy to get to. looks good after install , sets back just far enough to hide most of it. very clean not sure i'm going to leave the the front splash shield on looks good with out it. 894938

Review from a similar EZ4 in Base Plates


The Roadmaster base plate kit is well made and fit the Jeep JK very well. The assembly instructions were detailed and accurate with the exception of how to cut the plastic splash/rock guard under the bumper. I questioned the dimensions provided and checked prior to cutting. I was able remove less material resulting in a better fit. The threaded plates with wire attached are not long enough to prevent spinning when torqueing the bolts attaching the bracket to the vehicle frame. I was able to use a 7/8 open end wrench to hold the plates while torqueing the bolts. A little frustrating but as there isn't much room to access the upper plate. Roadmaster should consider manufacturing those plates longer to prevent spinning. The customer service from Etrailer was excellent. Tammie expedited my order and provided notification when shipped and delivered. Tammie is a 5 star representative and I appreciate her attention to my order. I recommend Roadmaster products and Etrailer. 876649
