Base Plate for 2014 Jeep Wrangler With 1 D-Ring Bumper Mounts

Question:

I have a 2014 Jeep Wrangler 4 door with and after market bumper that has D-ring brackets on it. I have seen some tow bars that hook right to those brackets so there is no need for a mounting plate. The brackets are 1 inch thick and the hole is 1 inch. Do you have anything that will work for that? I also have an older tow bar from my brother-in-law BX7335. Can I buy new connectors for that one?

We have exactly what you need to flat tow your 2014 Jeep Wrangler with an off-road bumper that has 1" D-ring brackets, the Adapter for Jeep D-Ring Bumper Mounts to Roadmaster Motor Home Mount Tow Bars - 1" Thick # RM-035-1. As the name of the product states, however, they will require a Roadmaster tow bar as there are no adapters to use with a Blue Ox tow bar. For this I highly recommend checking out the Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar # RM-522 because it has long arms that will enable your Jeep to track easily behind your motorhome for a smoother towing experience.

You will also need RoadMaster Safety Cables # RM-643, Wiring Kit # RM-15267, Quick Battery Disconnect # RM-766, and a supplemental braking system. For this I recommend the Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System # RM-8700 because it is a one-time install so you won't have to constantly activate and deactivate it like you would with a portable system. You will need Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751452 as well in order to ensure a braking system works properly on your Jeep.

You may also need a high-low adapter in order to keep your 2014 Wrangler level, and I've added a link to a help article which shows you how to determine if you need an adapter as well as a link to our selection of adapters.

Additionally, I have added links to instruction manuals, video reviews and installations for you to take a look at.

Question:

I saw a video on your website that had a plug and go wire system for the lights on the Jeep. This way there is no splicing wires can I use that system?

There is a plug-in harness you can use on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler, the Hopkins Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles # HM56200. Using this means you will not have to splice at all, just like you were wanting.

You can connect it to the 6-pole on your RV by cutting off the 4-way and wiring it to the Roadmaster 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Kit # RM-146-7.

I have added a link to a video install for you to check out which shows exactly how to do this.

Question:

I have a BX7335 Aventa II Tow Bar can I buy the adapters to used it with the D-ring mounts on my Jeep? They are 1 inch thick with a 1inch hole.

The answer to that depends on how large the lug pin hole (where the lug pin goes through) is on your Jeep's off-road bumper. If it is 7/8" then you can use theBlue Ox Aftermarket Off-Road Bumper Adapter - 7/8" Pin # BX88357 instead of the Jeep D-Ring Bumper Mounts to Roadmaster Motor Home Mount Tow Bars # RM-035-1. If the lug pin hole is 1" then you will need to go with the Roadmaster mounts and a new tow bar.
