Ok, armed with the above info, the Blue Ox web site shows this device as an "bracket"...no mention of an "adapter". From the website, here is their description.


"Blue Ox base plates are easy on your suspension and even easier on the eye, because they are designed with hidden reinforcements. Vehicle specific baseplate is integrated into the individual bumper design of the towed vehicle. Selected Blue Ox base plates have removable tabs that further enhance the aesthetics. When you aren't towing, just remove the tabs to make your base plate virtually invisible to the casual observer. "

So from this description, this device is a bracket used in conjunction with the base plate that you attache to the base plate so that it sticks out where you can mount the tow bar to. Without this bracket (used when NOT using the tow bar), it hides the base plate from normal sight. There is NO way you can mount the towbar "directly" to the base plate without this bracket.

In addition, the above bracket is used on the Jeep Wrangler only. I seriously doubt if your Dakota requires one...maybe it does, but not this one.

I hope this satisfies your question.

Ron
