Hello, I am looking at buying the night hawk all terrain #RM-677 tow bar and would like to set this up to tow bot a 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Sahara Unlimited plus a 2014 Ford F150 FX4 3.5 eco boost. What would I purchase to complete this package regarding parts - ?Baseplates - ?braking systems - ?diode wiring - ?other I prefer to buy premium parts because of the quality, but would also consider options. Please let me know. Thanks for your help with this. Regards,

For a base plate kit that fits your 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited you'd want the part # RM-521453-5 which would work great with the Nighthawk part # RM-677. Then for the 2014 Ford F-150 you'd want the # RM-524431-5.

Then for the lighting solution you'd want the part # RM-15267. Which most of this will work between the two tow bars you'd want the # RM-154 with the socket kit # RM-910030-7.

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 # BLU37TR, 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.

For the Wrangler you'll also need the # RM-9332 and for the Ford # RM-88400.
