Several weeks ago I inquired about anybody having any experiences with having Blue Ox fit a baseplate for a vehicle that they did not have available. There were few responses, and now that I have had one done thought that others might want my impressions of the experience.

I arranged to drop my car off on a Monday morning and was told that it would take two to three days to complete. I was provided a loaner car so that I could tour the area. Since I had driven all night to get there early, I was very happy to find a motel close by, and crashed for several days! I did find out two things on this trip - it is almost 900 miles from Nashville, and there is not a whole lot to do in the area!

When I picked up my car as arranged on Wednesday afternoon, I was very pleased to see the job that had been done. They had overcome several installation problems that were encountered due to tight quarters and difficulty finding solid mounting points. Even with the problems, they were able to fabricate the removable tab style baseplate. I was very pleased with the way the installation blended in to the grill of the car.

Not only did they do the baseplate, they did a fantastic job of wiring the lights, installing a breakaway switch for my Apollo system,installing the sensor for the brake indicator, went through my Aladdin towbar replacing some questionable parts, and thoroughly checked out my Apollo for correct operation.

All in all, I was very happy with the manner in which Blue Ox treated me and the fine job they did on my car.

If you ever have the need to have a baseplate made in this fashion, give Mandy at Blue Ox a call and I'm sure that she and the rest of the staff there will take good care of you.
