2021 GMC Canyon Denail diesel

Can not find a base plate that will fit. Blue Ox has none at this time, they have one that will fit the 2021 Chevy Colorado ,and 2020 canyon. E trailer has none that will work with the diesel motor. They have one that will work with the adaptive cruise control, but not with the diesel motor. Is there any other place to look. THANKS

When I did a factory tour at Blue Ox a few years ago, they said that anyone who had a late model vehicle could get a baseplate free. You just had to go to the factory with your vehicle, let them use it for a few days to take measurements and pictures, and they would fit a baseplate for you. Their upside was that they can now sell that baseplate.

You should give them a call to see if they still do that.

I had this done on a Hyundai XG350 a number of years ago and had no problems with it. However, with what experiences I've had with later Blue Ox base plates, and their failure to correct well documented engineering deficiencies, I'd go to a good certified welding shop and have them make one for you. You'll get one that will not bend, break, or loosen at every turn. Do a web search to get a sample of extensive Blue Ox problems. I finally ended up getting my welding shop fix problems BO would not even admit existed. BLUE OX IS NOT YOUR FRIEND.

Give Roadmaster a call and ask why it won't work with the diesel. They may want to use yours or have one in production with a date.

I preferred the Roadmaster for my 2018, it didnít require hacking up the air flow baffles like the Blue Ox.

I am having that problem with my 2016 Colorado Base Plate. It has come loose twice, The bolts supplied were to short. After the second time, replaced with longer bolts that would hold the torque and spot welded it in place. I called Blue Ox with the problem and sent photos. Answer: "it meets our engineering specs." Really!? Mechanics 101, bolt threads need to extend 1/2 past the nut to hold torque, not 2 threads holding 5,000 pounds of truck.

Personally I would check with Demco https://www.demco-products.com/rv-towing/baseplates
