Speaker 1: Today on our 2007 Jeep Liberty we're going to be taking a look at the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit with removable arm, Part Number RM-521423-5.So here's what our base plate looks like fully installed. It's going to allow us to take our motor home and tow our Jeep behind it. Make sure it's nice, safe, and secure. Now this is going to work with Roadmaster Tow Bars that are mounted to a motor home. When we're not towing our Jeep we do have the option of removing our draw bars. If we come right on the inside here, we're going to have a pull ring.



Blue Ox Base Plate Installation - 2013 Jeep Liberty

Today on our 2013 Jeep Liberty, we're going to review and install the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms, part number BX1131. Now here's what our base plate is going to look like once it's installed. Currently, our base plate is set up not to be used, as we have the cups that are installed into the base plate openings. We can remove the cup and install the removable tab or arm. The tab will slide into the opening, rotate, push in, which you'll notice, pushes out on the pin that's spring loaded, will rotate, and it locks into position, holding the removable arm or tab into the base plate. This will allow us, then, to hook up to our tow bar.

Put our other tab in. The same thing applies.



Blue Ox Base Plate Kit Installation - 2007 Jeep Liberty

Today on our 2007 Jeep Liberty, we'll be installing the Blue Ox base plate, part number BX1122. To begin with, you will need to raise the hood of the vehicle. Next, we'll need to remove the grill. In this case, we we're able to lift up the tabs one on top of each of the headlights as well as four tabs through the middle that need to be unclipped, and then as you pull the grill towards the front of the vehicle and out, it will lift off. With the grill out of the way, we need to remove two bolts that are just below the headlights, they are 10 mm bolts. We need to remove both of these as they help hold the lower bumper fascia in place. With each of these removed one on each side, now we need to go into the fender well. We'll need to remove two Christmas tree push pins that are located on the inner fender well section shown here.

Jeep Liberty Base Plates Questions and Answers


  • Are Roadmaster Base Plates Compatible with a Reese Tow Bar for a 2012 Jeep Liberty
  • The Roadmaster base plates, # 521434-1, will work with a Reese tow bar as long as it is Reese model 74950 and you use adapter # RM-025 with quick disconnects # RM-201. If it is a different model tow bar then it will not work. based on my research I found that the compatible Reese tow bar is only rated for 5,000 pounds so it is not likely the base plates will be compatible. For a compatible tow bar you can use the Tracker # RM-020 and you will also need the quick disconnects # RM-201....

  • Can the Blue Ox Base Plate Safety Cables Have Chains Added to Tow a Jeep Out of a Mud Hole
  • I contacted our representative at Blue Ox and the safety chains included in the Blue Ox base plate kit # BX1131 and the base plate themselves haven't been tested as a recovery point to pull a Jeep out of a mud hole. I wouldn't recommend it and I think your best option is to get tow strap. It's inexpensive and will provide you a peace of mind when the time comes to safely pull a Jeep out of a mud hole. A tow strap I recommend is the Erickson tow strap # EM59700 that has a break strength...
