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, simply twist the arms back and pull them out. 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.

2019 Ford Ranger

Parts arrived promptly and with only a minor flaw due to Ford's misalignment on a support hole, went together smoothly and expeditiously. Parts are of strong quality materials. 820652

Followed directions and completed job in a little over 4 hours. had trouble reinserting some pins in difficult locations. Later in the month I installed the wiring tow package. Goofed up and crossed a wire and it took me two days to get back under the truck and rewire. all is working great according to directions...……. I will use etrailer again, good service, great service representatives...……..jt 663671

  • Correct Base Plate Kit for a 2019 Ford Ranger XLT SuperCab 4x4
    Yes, the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit part # RM-524459-4 is a confirmed fit for your 2019 Ford Ranger XLT SuperCab 4x4. There are no differences between the Lariat and XLT trim packages in regards to the fit of a base plat kit such as the above. For a compatible tow bar, I recommend the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain Tow Bar part # RM-676. The Nighthawk is one of the best tow bars we offer. It has a non-binding and self-aligning design which makes for an extremely easy...

    Yes, the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit part # RM-524459-4 will work with the Roadmaster StowMaster All Terrain Tow Bar part RM-502 on your 2019 Ford Ranger. You just need to make sure you still have the car side quick disconnects, the Roadmaster Tow Bar Quick Disconnects part # RM-222.

  • Do Roadmaster Crossbar Style Base Plates Effect Activation of Collision Sensors on 2019 Ford Ranger
    To give you the short answer- No. The crossbar style base plates like the Roadmaster # RM-524459-4 will not interfere with the collision avoidance sensors when installed on your 2019 Ford Ranger. The sensors are mounted on the front bumper far enough away from the base plates that they won't activate them. You will have to disconnect the sensors during the installation, since the bumper is removed, but they are plugged back in once the bumper goes back on. The arms on these base plates...

  • Install Video for Base Plate Kit that Fits 2019 Ford Ranger
    We have an install video for a Roadmaster Base Plate kit part # RM-524459-4 on a 2019 Ford Ranger that I attached a link to on this page but we do not have a Blue Ox install video at this time (February 2020). 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 All Terrain, # RM-522. This has non-binding arms which makes the setup very easy...

  • Comparing Roadmaster Direct Connect and Crossbar Base Plate Kits for 2019 Ford Ranger
    Personally I prefer the direct connect base plate kits like the part # RM-524459-5 as they are easier to connect/disconnect, are simpler overall like you said, and require keeping track of fewer things (the crossbar). While the crossbar does add sturdiness the Direct Connect kits are more reinforced where they attach to the vehicle frame and to the arms of the kit so they overall are just as strong. This would work really well with the Blackhawk part # RM-422. I attached an install...

  • Install of Roadmaster Baseplate on 2019 Ford Ranger
    I have a video of a 2019 Ford Ranger getting the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit # RM-524459-4, which is the same process as the one your referenced, # RM-524459-5. The difference between the 2 is how the tow bar mounts, and the removable arms. Each base plate installs exactly the same, the direct connect has less components to hook up to the tow bar. Instead of using a quick disconnect cross bar, it connects directly to the base plate. I linked the parts and a video showing...
