Blue Ox Base Plate Kit that Fits 2018 Ford F150 Raptor for Flat Towing


Im looking for base plates that will fit my 2018 Ford F150 Raptor, the info for part number BX2671 does not indicate that it wont fit, other base plates you have listed specifically state they do not fit the Raptor. If this base plate does not fit, do you have any that do?

The Blue Ox Base plate kit part # BX2671 is a confirmed fit for your 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor. You'll also need a tow bar to flat tow and for that I recommend the Blue Ox part # BX7365 which is a great option as it has telescoping arms that make it easy to connect/disconnect and because it comes with safety cables.

For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your tow vehicle to control the taillight assemblies of the towed vehicle. This comes with a round 6-way connector that you will install on the front of your towed vehicle and enough coiled wire to go from there to the RV.

And finally, most states now require supplemental braking in the vehicle being flat towed. The easiest system to set up and use is the Blue Ox Patriot # BRK2016, that applies the vehicle brakes in proportion to how much the tow vehicle is braking. This is the safest way to stop and it reduces wear and tear on both vehicles.

Most likely you will also need a high low adapter so that the tow bar will be level when you are flat towing. I attached a link to a page that has all of the ones we carry.

I have included a couple of helpful links to our articles on flat towing for you. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual for more specific information on flat towing your vehicle.
