Blue Ox Base Plates are the ones that the world trusts when it comes to any towing needs. These base plates are custom-engineered for suiting the specific towing needs without causing any major modification to your vehicle. The base plates are constructed using durable steel and integrate with the vehicle's original bumper and frame with ease. These base plates are capable of absorbing any shock when you are towing the vehicle and protecting the vehicle's frame from it.

Some base plates have removable tabs that maintain the vehicle aesthetic even when the base plate is installed. These come without any crossbar support beam or any large bracket that sticks out, and the removable tab makes the base plate almost invisible. Blue Ox Base Plates are also made to be easy to install, being able to use the holes that are already there on the vehicle, including being bolted to the chassis.

Base Plates from Blue Ox are custom designed and are the ideal choice for many different towing needs. These base plates also have a 3-year warranty. You can use them across Blue Ox's range of towing bars and work with many vehicles from Landrover to Jeep and GMC, BMW, Fiat, and almost any other manufacturer that you can think of.
