Base Plate Not Available Yet.

Here I've been pushing to get out 2016 Grand Cherokee Limited, in a timely fashion, Thinking the base plate for the 2015, will fit the 2016.

NOT!

I called Blue Ox and they said they have one being delivered from the factory, that they will do the test fit and mock-up on, Of course, they couldn't tell me when that was going to happen . Guess that's what I get for getting something brand new.

I had a 98 Honda Accord 2 door Coupe but Demco only had plates that fit the 4 door Accord. Volunteered to be the test car and got a 15% discount also. The plate fit without a problem.

RoadMaster needed a vehicle to test fit a new setup. We just happened to own one, a 2005 Honda Odyssey. The had the vehicle for two days. I got the brackets, installation and several other parts for nothing. Still on the van and working fine. I did have to install the light and braking system myself.

Do you qualify for this program?

I believe I see your vehicle listed?

If I was closer to them. I am on the East coast and I believe Blie Ox is in the Mid-West. Guess I'll just have to wait.

2016 Jeep Cherokee

Not to hijack your thread, but I checked for the 2016 Jeep Cherokee Latitude and Blue Ox does not have one listed for it. Blue Ox has the BX1135 for the 2015 models. What changed between the 2015 and 2016 models?

I have the same question about the 2015 - 2016 Grand Cherokee. The difference is not visible, but Blue Ox says it's there

There was no difference

Blue Ox now says that the baseplate for a 2015 Grand Cherokee fits a 2016 Grand Cherokee as well. As a matter of fact, the same baseplate fits 2011 - 2016.
