Will Demco Base Plates on 2001 Jeep Wrangler be Compatible with Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar


I have a Demco base plate on my 2001 Jeep Wrangler and I want to get a Blue Ox tow bar for my motor home will they work together


Expert Reply:

The existing Demco base plates on your 2001 Jeep Wrangler are compatible with the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7380 that you are looking at but it will depend on what particular model base plates you have as to whether or not you will need a separate adapter to connect the two components.

I spoke with my contact at Blue Ox and he said that based on the age of the Jeep you most likely have the Demco Classic Base Plate Kit # DM9518045. If this is the case then it is directly compatible with the Blue Ox Alpha and no adapter is needed.

If you happen to have the newer Tabless Base Plate Kit # DM9519045 from Demco then you will just need to add the Adapter # DM9523127 for your setup will work perfectly.

The model number for your base plates should be located on the crossmember, most likely with a sticker. If you have a different model number than the two options listed above please let me know and I will be happy to verify compatibility.
