2009 Wrangler baseplate

I already have a Roadmaster Falcon II tow bar. Need help for a baseplate on a 2009 Wrangler Rubicon. Which baseplate do you recommend for this vehicle?
Thanks,
Alex

None. Install an aftermarket bumper and brackets attached to the bumper. More bang for your buck. Raises the attachment point as well which is often a good thing.

I bought a used Rough Country bumper on eBay. For a lot less than base plates would have cost me. The bumper had D ring plates that bolted to through the bumper into the jeep frame, I took these D rings and the tow bar attachment points to a local machine shop and he made two new plates with the tow bar attachments on them. I think he charged new $40 for these. With eBay and a little patience, I got a steel bumper modified, a tow bar, a Brake Buddy supplemental braking system, and a new light wiring harness for less than $700.

This. It's cheaper and you get a real bumper out of the deal..
