I shopped with trailer before and once again I’m happy. They always have what I need and this time was no different. I needed to change out couplers on my blue ice tow bar after changing toads. Now I can tow the Jeep with off-road bumper!!! Awesome etrailer I will always recommend you guys! 937248

  • Adapter Recommendation for Attaching Tow Bar to Jeep With Rugged Ridge Bumper
    We have an adapter from Blue Ox that is designed for attaching their tow bars to a Rugged Ridge bumper like you have which is part # BX88301. This would be your best option as it was designed for your bumper. The other option is that Roadmaster makes a base plate kit that is designed specifically for the Rugged Ridge buper like you have which is part # 1437-3 which you could attach a Roadmaster tow bar like the Falcon 2 # RM-520 directly to.

  • Parts Needed to Tow 2007 Jeep Wrangler JK with Blue Ox D-Ring Adapter Kit
    As long as you've got an aftermarket bumper with D-ring plates at least 5/8" thick, you can use the Blue Ox Aftermarket Bumper Adapter - 1" Pin # BX88358 to flat tow your 2007 Jeep Wrangler. To complete your flat towing setup you'll also need a compatible tow bar, tow bar wiring, safety cables, supplemental braking system and possibly a high/low adapter. For a tow bar I recommend using the Blue Ox Avail Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 10,000 lbs # BX7420, which is compatible with the D-ring...

  • Do the Blue Ox Aftermarket Bumper Adapters Have a Weight Capacity
    The Blue Ox Aftermarket Bumper Adapter part # BX88358 (1" Pin) and part # BX88357 (7/8" Pin) are an excellent option to attach a motorhome mounted Blue Ox Tow Bar such as the Blue Ox Ascent Tow Bar part # BX4370 to an aftermarket bumper with welded-on d-rings. The adapters don't have any sort of weight capacity but they can handle enough for any of the motorhome mounted tow bars they are designed to be used with so there should be no problems here.

  • Adapter to Go From Blue Ox Tow Bar to Aftermarket Bumper of 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL with D-Rings
    Since you have a Blue Ox tow bar currently and a 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL you could use the D-ring adapter part # BX88358 to attach to your D-rings. I'd recommend running the safety chains to the frame of the vehicle as that's the most secure location.

  • How To Use Tow Bar with D-Rings On Jeep Bumper
    In order to use a tow bar with a set of welded-on d-rings which are commonly found on aftermarket Jeep bumpers you need a specific type of tow bar, one that mounts on the motorhome when not in use. The Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar part # RM-520 and Blue Ox Alpha 2 Tow Bar part # BX7380 are both examples of motorhome mounted tow bars and are excellent options to use, the best value for the money. In order to use either tow bar with a set of welded-on d-rings you will need an adapter which...

  • Will Base Plate Kit from 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Fit 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    Sounds like you've gotten some good use out of the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1126 for your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited! Jeep actually had a generation swap mid-year for 2018 models so your 2020 Wrangler Unlimited will use a different base plate kit which I've listed out for you below: Standard Factory Bumper - # BX1139 Off-Road Bumper with 1" D-Ring Mounts with a 1 inch pin diameter - # BX88358 Off-Road Bumper with 1" D-Ring Mounts with a 7/8 inch pin diameter - # BX88357 If you...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2013 Jeep Wrangler with Off Road Bumper
    For a base plate kit tow tow your 2013 Jeep Wrangler that has an off road bumper with 1 inch D-rings you'd need to start with the # BX88358 for a Blue Ox setup. Then for a tow bar you'd want the # BX7420 which is the easiest to use and allows the vehicle to track the best behind the coach. For lighting you'd want the # RM-152-98146-7. The diode kit that comes with this allows you to splice into the taillight wiring so that your RV controls the vehicle taillights and does not require...

  • Base Plate Kit for 2004 Jeep Wrangler Compatible with Blue Ox 6,500 lb Tow Bar
    I believe the Blue Ox tow bar you are referring to is the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7365 rated for 6,500 lbs. There are a variety of base plate kits available for your 2004 Jeep Wrangler and the correct one all depends on what kind of bumper you have. Below is a list of the compatible base plate kits. Please note that the D-Ring options are for bumpers that have been rated for flat towing. Aftermarket Off-Road Bumper- 7/8" Pin # BX88357 Double Tube Bumper - # BX1120 (Fixed Tabs) OR...

  • Will Blue Ox Base Plate Fit 2017 Jeep Wrangler with a Smittybilt Front Bumper
    The base plate options for a 2017 Jeep Wrangler are all designed for models with a factory installed front bumper, the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit part # BX1126 for example which is designed to be used with a tow bar like the Blue Ox Alpha 2 Tow Bar part # BX7380. I will say that certain aftermarket front bumpers have built-in d-rings which can be used with a tow bar adapter if allowed by the manufacturer, the Blue Ox Aftermarket Bumper Adapter part # BX88358 or part # BX88357.

  • Which Bumpers Can I Flat Tow a Jeep Wrangler JLU With Using D-Ring Adapters
    Whether or not you can flat tow with a Jeep bumper is really up to the manufacturers testing; some of the big names like MetalCloak or Poison Spyder have bumpers with D-ring attachments that can be used for flat towing connections. This is great since it doesn't require that you install base plates that might otherwise affect the looks of your Jeep. You'll want to find a bumper that mounts to the frame and has solid D-ring plates built into the bumper, not bolted on for the best compatibility....

  • Cleanest Looking Base Plate for my 2019 Jeep Wrangler Moab Edition
    Of the two option I have available the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit part # RM-521453-5 and the Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit part # DM9519339 I really like the look of the Demco model. While it does add more to the front of the vehicle it does it in a very nice factory look. This has all of the attachment points and will keep you from having a pieced together look. When not in use the arms are removable for an even cleaner look. To use this with your Aventa II tow bar use...

  • Available Blue Ox Tow Bar Adapters for Jeep Wrangler
    Roadmaster D-Ring Tow Bar Adapter Kits # RM-035 and # RM-035-1 are designed to work specifically with Roadmaster tow bars such as their BlackHawk 2 All-Terrain model # RM-422. We do have similar items that work with Blue Ox tow bars, such as part Blue Ox Tow Bar Adapter Brackets # BX88358 that work on Hammerhead and Fab Fours brand bumpers. Kit # BX88230 is a bolt-on heavy-duty bracket kit that allows use of a Blue Ox tow bar with an aftermarket bumper. The bumper may require reinforcement. All...

  • Adapter to Join Blue Ox Tow Bar with Aftermarket Bumper D-Rings
    My technical contact at Blue Ox advised that the only adapter kit they offer that could potentially work on your M.O.R.E. aftermarket Jeep bumper is kit # BX88358. He was not familiar with the M.O.R.E. brand of products. There is a MOVE brand of bumper and based on photos of the D-rings on their products the above kit looks to be a good match since the included pins are 1-inch in diameter.

  • Recommended Adapter to Flat Tow 2017 Toyota 4Runner with Aftermarket Front Bumper
    We don't carry any aftermarket bumpers for your 4Runner but that is the route I recommend. The reason is that adding a bull bar or a grille guard will interfere with the mounting locations of baseplates, so you can't have both. If you get a heavy duty front bumper with D-rings then you can use those as your baseplates using your Blue Ox Tow Bar and the corresponding adapter: -Blue Ox Aftermarket Off-Road Bumper Adapter - 7/8" Pin # BX88357 -Blue Ox Aftermarket Bumper Adapter - 1"...
