Well, after searching about 30 So. Cal. dealers for the "just right" Jeep Rubicon Unlimited, I have placed the order. If I'm going to spend that kind of $$, I want it to be perfect. I went through "Cars Direct.com" There price is about $1500 under invoice, so I can live with that.

Thanks to Bill Arf for his flat towing thread on new Jeeps. I will be reading it at length....

We have an 07 Sahara Unlimited. Silver, dual tops, Mygig, 18's, limited slip ect ect. We are very happy with it. Towing is a snap. We use a Roadmaster 1428-1 bracket but I think you would need to use a -3 because of your electric disconnecting sway bar if you have one. Cooltech LLC makes a great wiring harness. The Falcon II tow bar is a reasonable choice and the Roadmaster EvenBrake takes care of the stopping chores.
Good luck. When do you take delivery?

Sarge.. You are Welcome!

Hope you will be using a Blue Ox BX1126 baseplate along with the Blue Ox Alexus tow bar you have already. The BX1126 baseplate works with ALL '07, '08, 09 Wranglers to include the Wrangler Rubicon which comes with an electric sway bar disconnect.

Rick 2005 Dolphin 5376.... Actually I believe you are using a 1429-1 and not a 1428-1. If you remember a post that I addressed to you a while back in another thread, The 1428-1 was discontinued by RoadMaster and they went to the 1429-1. The 1429-1 kit will work on a 2 door or 4 door Wrangler with or without the automatic sway bar disconnect. (Both) The 1428-1 would not work on a Wrangler with the automatic sway bar disconnect. The 1428-1 was a screw up by RoadMaster for this reason.

Again, they discontinued the 1428-1 and went with the Roadmaster 1429-1 base plate that works with all '07, '08 and soon to come '09 Wranglers. The 1429-1 is a better design from what I have been led to believe. A decent base plate but I prefer the Blue Ox BX1126.

It seems that is the $64 question! The dealer just quoted me 4 - 6 MONTHS!
It seems that Chrysler is shutting down for two weeks (along with other
major auto manufactures to save some money) and then by the time they gear
back up and build one to order, it takes forever. There is not many
Rubicons made, and even less available. Guess I will have to hurry up and
wait.

Thanks for the update Bill. I will be using the baseplate and wiring harness. If it ever shows up.......

Thanks for catching that. It is in fact a 1429-1.
