Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit Installation - 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Today on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, we're gonna be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Roadmaster Crossbar Style Base Plate Kit with removable arms.Here's what our base plate's gonna look like once we have it installed. This is gonna give us a really solid attachment point to hook our tow bar up to, so we can flat tow our Jeep safely down the road.I do wanna mention that the accessories we have mounted up here are not included with the kit. Here we have our breakaway switch for our braking system, our airline fitting for our braking system, and then finally our electrical plug. But our base plate is gonna come with a bracket to mount your breakaway switch for your supplemental braking system, as well as two prongs here so you can mount your electrical connector.What I really like about this base plate is the fact that we can actually remove the arms when we're not towing our Jeep. We come to the pull ring here, we can pull it out, we'll twist the arm, and then it'll come out and have a lot cleaner look.Now, if you look, we can see that we're gonna have this crossbeam that's gonna sit right below our bumper, and that's gonna provide a lot of support for our base plate. It's gonna be mounted directly to the frame, but this crossbar here is gonna help reduce the amount of stress that's put on our front suspension.And then whenever we do wanna tow and hook up, we can simply take our arm, we'll put it in, we're gonna press in until that ring comes out, and we can rotate it till it locks into place.Our Roadmaster base plate is gonna work with all quick-disconnects, as well as all Roadmaster tow bars.
