I am looking for Base plate brackets to tow my 2003 Ford Ranger Edge 2WD Pickup behind my class A motor home. I have a Roadmaster Sterling Towbar and have found roadmaster brackets for my vehicle. But with a warning.

Vehicle Specific:2 & 4 Wheel Drive. No Skidplate, No tremor. Must have tow hooks.


Product No: T477-1

My Ranger does not have a Skidplate so am OK there. I don't know what Tremor means and I have no Tow Hooks. Has anyone put brackets on a vehicle such as this without having to do extensive modification. Will the above roadmaster base plate brackets fit? Is there another brand that would work? Any help would be appreciated.
Mel

Hi Mel....I was in the same position as you.
I was able to get a Demco plate for my truck. Also bought Demco adapters to fit the roadmaster bar.
looks and work great.

Well I made my own for under $100 using angle iron and square tube. I have a drill press and arc welder. But my 2003 ranger got totaled out a couple of weeks ago when a lady ran a red light and hit the tow bar brackets. they were stronger than the frame and the frame on my truck got bent. I got a 2005 ranger with the edge package. I am using the same type brackets that I made befor.
