MntDriver,

In the other forum where you and I were discussing this, you said the Warrior bracket would not fit onto a blue ox tow bar. Yesterday a buddy of mine came by with his MH and low and behold he had a blue ox tow bar towing his car. I thought of you and went and grabbed my Warrior brackets and took a couple pictures for you.


If you remember, I said replace whatever clevis you have on your tow bar with the Warrior bracket(clevis)

In this photo you can see how the Warrior bracket slides right onto the blue ox bar, just pull the vertical bolt out and put new bracket(clevis) in its place.

Changing the mount works well. I'm using
These. Mounted to both my Cherokee and TJ


and These fitted to my Roadmaster Falcon 2 tow bar.


Works very well and they both are tucked out of the way, the XJ (Cherokee) has them bolted to an Iron Rock Offroad tow hook system and the TJ has them bolted to the top of the bumper. Neither hang up on the toughest trails.

DegoRed, I truly appreciate the pictures as they clarify alot to me. Thanks so much for the posts!

I'm leaning toward the Currie base plate as it also serves as a guard replacing the cheap plastic rock guard. The Currie base plate also snugs up to the existing bumper and doesn't stick down like the Blue Ox baseplate does.

haven't had any issues with our Blue Ox setup & we do offroad with our Sahara--even been to Moab last year on some pretty gnarly trails and had no problems at all...

LoD will put tabs for your respective tow bar, they do blue ox and road master. I have a road master black hawk 2 and this works fantastically and they were great to work with.

Picture of my jeep below, I will try to get a picture of the tabs (they are below the clevises). Also, here is a link to the bumper on LoD's site.

I used the blue ox bumper brackets, on a rock crusher bumper on a TJ. Works very nicely. I bolted the brackets to the bumper, then installed the bumper, which is 1/4" thick steel.

Jim, I would worry about the bolts pulling through. Having off-roaded for 10 years, clubs require hook points front and rear and don't want them bolted on like that. My Blue Ox is bolted directly to the frame.

I have ordered the Currie Base Plate, as I don't want to replace my front bumper at this time. Thanks for all the suggestions!

Link to the Currie Base Plate Installed

Hi, Here is a Thread about the Currie base plate. There is a photo of a JK with it installed. There is also a description of the mods needed although I am not sure if all that cutting is needed. I have a Currie sitting in my garage waiting to be installed. I do think it is made very well and substantial. I have a 2012 Sahara that it will go on.

There is some cutting involved, very minor. Maybe 1/4" on each side of the front crossmember. A sawsall worked great. The Currie is a great way to go. It is tucked out of the way an replaces the plastic lower air dam.

07 Wrangler Unlimited here. Towing with base plates. If I get stuck somewhere because of that, I didn't belong there in the first place. =)

The base plate (Blue Ox) does not hang down any lower than the plastic shroud that is on the Jeep when new. It poses no 4WD problems. You can order it through any reputable dealer handling BO products. I just got my 2013 Wrangler Unlimited Sahara and next week I will be installing the BP, and LED wiring kit, and then putting back in my Even Brake system so I have brakes and can tow it. Should take a day or so. For 2012/2013 Wranglers the baseplate number is BX-1126 and that has been verified with Blue OX via several e-mails and phone calls. The LED light kit is BX-88269.
