We just had the ReadyBrute Elite installed. This is our first toad (2000 Jeep Wrangler) for our first RV. We are on our first trip towing the Jeep now. Easy to set up and tow, all good so far!

I have the Roadmaster Black Hawk 2 all terrain and would not recommend any Roadmaster tow bar. On my third trip using the tow bar it failed causing damage to the toad and the tow bar. I contacted Roadmaster and they said they were sorry for this happening and I could purchase a new unit for $1070.00, which is their price. All day long new units are $900.00. A company that won't stand behind their product is disgraceful. Buyer beware.

I now have a Blue Ox Aladdin tow bar, Blue Ox baseplates, the Blue Ox AutoStop built into the Aladdin tow bar (similar to the ReadyBrute Elite), and the Blue Ox BrakeLock. I was fortunate to use the Blue Ox fit program for my 2012 Hyundai Accent SE which provided the baseplate fabrication and installation and the Aladdin tow bar free, 25% off the wiring kit, BrakeLock and other accessories, and no labor charge for any of the installation. I figure I saved $1,500 to $2,000.

Me too! Use with the Blue Ox base plate for clean looks. Simple and inexpensive setup!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
With Blue Ox base plates, easy peasy!
