Baseplate Good to Go!

Just got my Blue Ox base plate on my 2014 Wrangler! Wiring harness installed too. Waiting for my Ready Brute Elite tow bar to arrive today. Leaving next week for a two week adventure, going to need a little practice towing the toad probably. Thanks to all who gave me direction on my purchases.

I suggest you make a check list of all the steps needed to prepare for towing. It might help save your brakes, transmission, battery, or just be a good exercise in what to do.

I agree. A nice little stroll down the highway and back will help. The funniest thing for me was the 1st time I made a corner, I looked in the mirror and thought, 'who the heck is tailgating me". If you get in a situation that requires unhooking, don't stress. Take your time and be methodical. There is no situation that warrants unnecessary stress. I have learned this the hard way.
