  • 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.

If you are at all interested in using a rock guard or protective...

  • 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.
