Flat tow recommendations

What would you recommend to buy (manufacturer) to flat tow a 2014 jeep wrangler rubicon behind our 33.1?


ReadyBrute Elite RV Tow Bar (which has a surge braking system) looks to be a good one, but which base plate system?

Flat tow recommendations

I did the road master base plates with my ready brute elite tow system. Worked out great and when you order the ready brute just tell them you will be using the road master base plates. The road master base plates are very easy to install on the jeep.

I think that tcopeland has that tow bar. If he doesn't respond send him a PM.

Readybrute is a very good choice.

For a base plate the Currie is popular. If you install an aftermarket bumper you can add simple brackets to the bumper or adapters to connect to the D-ring loops. I prefer to tow via the bumper as there is no base plate expense, no base plate to hang down when off-roading, and often eliminates/reduces the need for a drop receiver.

With a stock a Jeep and 255/75 r 17 tires the road master base plates and ready brute will give you a perfectly level tow system with the palazzo aired up.

Have the Ready Brute Elite with a Blue Ox baseplate.
It is level when hooked up.
