Jeep Wrangler Base Plate

I started the install to day, the push pins almost fell out with the help of a pair of wire cutters. Thinking of using glue on push pins when reinstall them as pan was very loose b4 I took it off.

Bob, I am going to be performing the same task shortly...should I go buy some new push pins before I start the job?

It is a 2014 for me and Blue Ox plate. Planning on installing the Mopar wiring harness today.

Did a RoadMaster on my 2013 Wrangler. No problem. All the shield push pins were reusable. But, they are also readily availble at most autopart stores and, of course, Jeep dealers.
Have fun!

My push pins look very reusable, but I probably will buy some new one's. I'm 71 and have back problems, so I'm still working on taking off the bumper, have 3 nuts off so far :-)

Almost was going to install

I was planning on doing my baseplate this weekend.

BUT

Blue-Ox-Towbars.com never shipped my order after 6 weeks, (they charged my CC six weeks ago) so I had to dispute CC charge total.

They changed their name this weekend and are now going by Tow Bar Finder.com but the URL is still http://www.blue-ox-towbars.com/

FYI if you still need to place a new order. Recently purchased my tow bar and base plate from towbarsunlimited.com, and order was shipped and received within a few days. Others on this forum have also purchased from towbarsunlimited with excellent success.

I did so and can confirm that this is a very good company to deal with and very cost competitive as well.
I elected to go with a Demco Base Plate and a COOLTECH wiring harness and really like the Demco for it's cost, build strength, the way it installs and mounts and the way it looks on the Wrangler. Only thing is, the belly pan stays off unless one should elect for a lot of chopping and mods. Might take another look for seeing what I might come up with, even though, it's not a big deal.
