No, the Adapter for Jeep D-Ring Bumper Mounts to Roadmaster Motor Home Mount Tow Bars # RM-035-1 would not fit your 1-3/16" thick mounts so you would need to go with a standard base plate.

If you have a Ford Performance Heavy Duty Modular Bumper then you'll want the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM92ZR. If you have a standard bumper you'll want the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BLU97XR instead.

For the tow bar I recommend the etrailer SD Non-Binding Tow Bar # e74ZR if you are going with the # RM92ZR base plates. For the # BLU97XR you'll need the etrailer SD Non-Binding Tow Bar # e47ZR.

These tow bars feature non-binding latches and telescoping, self supporting arms that make connecting and disconnecting your Bronco on any terrain a breeze. It has an adjustable head that tilts up or down 3" and the shank has a built-in 1-1/2" rise or drop to keep tow bar parallel with road while towing without the use of a high/low hitch adapter. It also comes with safety cables included so you won't need to purchase any separately.

For a tow bar wiring kit I recommend the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267. This diode kit allows you to use your Ford Bronco's tail lights and wiring system while preventing feedback from your RV.

Note: For applications that have separate lighting, this kit will cause your brake lights to function as both brake and turn signal lights. A wiring converter # 118158 and 2 additional diodes # RM-792 will be needed if you want to retain separate turn and brake signals.

Last but not least you'll need a braking system, for this I recommend the Demco Air Force One Supplemental Braking System w/ Wireless Coachlink # DM26VR if your motorhome has air brakes or the Demco Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System w/ Wireless Coachlink Monitor # DM86VR if your motorhome has hydraulic brakes.

Both of these systems are a one time install and require not setup once installed. Both systems apply pressure to your Bronco's brakes in proportion to how you press on your motorhome's brake pedal.

I've attached some videos below that will offer some additional information on these systems and run through the installation if you're planning on installing these items yourself.
