Connecting a toad

Does anyone make a complete tow set up for a 4 down jeep wrangler 2013? - baseplate, tow bar, brake system?

Roadmaster and Blue Ox make just about everything needed. I opted for an M & G braking system because it is the best match for a DP with air brakes. Went Blue Ox for everything else.

bowtie....... I don't know of anyone that makes a complete setup. But, if you have any future plans of upgrading the front bumper (winch?) do it now as the baseplate will be different vs. stock bumper.
I like the Demco products for basepate and tow bar.
M & G as mentioned previously is a great brake setup.
For lights look at Cool Tech LLC

If you are brand new to this you might want to consider a good hitch shop that will supply and install the whole nine yards and give you the skinny on hook up and safe towing habits.

I suggest you contact:

Remco driveshaft disconnect systems | Superflow

in Yuma. I went there from California specifically to buy a new car near by and had them install the entire towing system, including brakes.

They are the best in the country that I've seen so far.

Camping World will sell you a complete set up package and install it.
They had a special price with different tow bar choices, but it ended yesterday. :(

I have a Roadmaster system. Stowmaster Tow Bar, EZ Adapters, Roadmaster Baseplate, Roadmaster Brakemaster proportional braking system, Roadmaster wiring kit and Roadmaster 7 pin to 4 pin Flexicoil. I also got my emergency cables from Roadmaster.

So I guess you can get the whole kit and caboodle from one company for a Jeep, in my case Roadmaster. I like Roadmaster because they are 100% American made. I do not know about Blue Ox.

I called SMI for my 2013 Jeep Wrangler. They had the best pricing on the installation of the braking system, frame equipment,towbar and wiring. I drove to their shop and they installed everything while DW and I wandered around for the day. It has worked well for the last 10,000 miles.

Thanks for the good info, we went with the Ready Brute/w Ready Brake system. Picked it up in Las Vegas off craigslist. Using a Jeep JK toad with a Pavement Ends
Front Bumper with 1" shackle mounting bosses welded through the bumper.
