Lanerd,
No base plates needed on a Wrangler. Towbar bolts right to the frame. Lights were $29 at Wal-Mart and I don't even want to turn this into another toad brakes thread. Probably towed over 200K miles in the last 10 years behind 6 different motorhomes and can hookup in less than a minute and unhook in less than that.

I tried a dolly with my Mazda and got rid of it after putting a couple of dents in the Mazda where the dolly fenders hit the car in a sharp turn.

You don't have to spend a fortune to tow a car. I probably have less in the Wrangler and tow setup than most folks spend on a fancy complicated towbar.


Ditto, except we tow a 1988 Cherokee. My baseplate is the entire bumper (a Rockhard steel bumper which actually cost about the same as a baseplate and will probably destroy anything if it ever hits anything). We had a fifth wheel and will never go back to that. Hooking up a toad is WAY easier than a fifth wheel. I can hook up my toad in about 2 minutes. It takes me longer to hook up the magnetic lights (about 3 minutes). I will eventually install permanent lights so it is just a matter of a quick connect.


When someone says, "I'm not book smart, I'm street smart." All I hear is, "I'm not real smart, I'm imaginary smart."
