2012 Jeep Liberty as Toad

I purchased a 2012 Jeep Liberty for my toad. I already have a Roadmaster Stowmaster 5000 tow bar. In looking at the bracket for the 2012 Liberty, only Liberty's up to 2011 are listed. Is this a mistake? I realize that 2012 was the last year for the Liberty model, but are the 2012 models the same as the 2011 models? Are the brackets for these 2 years the same.

Next, which Roadmaster bracket would work best and why? I know this is a pretty open ended question, but this will be my first flat towing experience.

Thanks for any info you can provide.

I searched 2012 jeep liberty at IRV2 and came up with this thread.

2012 Jeep Liberty base plate installation

Hopefully there's something in there that helps.

Cliff, Thanks for the link. This thread also has some great info, particularly using the Roadmaster EZ bracket.

I appreciate your help.

The Blue OX plate for 2011 works on 2012.. Note: Instructions stink.. hard to get bumper facia off.. and you also need to cut entire lower grill our of it.. vs just where tow hooks might be..

I will be having it installed. With my back, I will not be able to handle the installation. Thanks for the info about the Blue Ox.

Good for you. You may want to inform whom ever is doing it.. that most likely they will need to cut 1 or 2 'clips'.. (3 on each side) which hold down the facia where it wraps around on side.. I did.. and several on forums I saw had to do same thing.. Then purchase new plastic clips.. from jeep.. (which are $4 a piece..) Job should take 3 hours. Now that I have done it. Imagine I could do in 90 minutes.. soo. depends upon the skill of whomever you are have do it now. Best guess they will charge 'book price'.. which is 3 hours of labor. Does not include hooking up any lights/wiring.. that is extra.

Good luck.
