Manufacturer: Blue Ox
While the item was back ordered for a few weeks, I was not in a hurry and was kept notified. The quality is excellent and the price was far better than any other source. Two thumbs up!
Order was received in a timely manner. Everything we needed was included. We installed the base plate ourselves after purchasing the necessary tools following the instructions included with the order. Our first tow of over 500 miles was successful with the jeep following safely behind. The Blue Ox is very easy to hook and unhook taking about 5 to 10 minutes to hook up and about 3 minutes to unhook. The base plate on the jeep is not noticeable and does not detract from the look of the jeep.
Thank you Blue Ox for your unique invention.
AWESOME... Without question they honored the price beat offer from ANY online price. Rapid delivery as well!
If you buy this exact model be sure to use the LARGER thread size nuts and bolts first. I failed to pay CLOSE attention to the factory instructions and had to "regroup" to finish the install.
All in all an Awesome product and even more AWESOME shopping experience.
I HIGHLY recommend this merchant for ANY RV or trailer hitch needs.
extremely fast delivery good product and good fit installation took longer than anticipated but very satisfied with product
Very easy to install.. I was able to install the Blue Ox base plate in half the time that I was quoted from a RV service department.
Very good instructions and not that hard to install. My son and I did it without any complications.
The installation of this Baseplate on my 2016 Wrangler was very simple and the instructions were easy to follow. I ran into one problem; there is no mention on how much space is allowable between the base plate and the frame. On my vehicle I had about 1/8" on each side ( a total of 1/4" ). This looked like too large of a gap so I called Blue Ox and they said that was normal and that the two plates would get pulled in against the frame when I torqued down the bolts; sure enough they did. So a note that says something like " The base plate may touch the frame rails when held in place but a gap of up to 1/8 inch per side is within the allowable tolerance."
The Tech rep at HitchSource was extremely helpful and explained everything I needed... Read More
Very easy to install by myself. Fit perfectly. I would highly recomend this product.
Ordered the kit because it was the best value. Took a little longer than the estimated 2.5 hours, probably because my grand-daughter was helping! The only drawback was the two wiring harnesses included. Had to call the help line to figure out which one I needed. The technician was very helpful and explained which one I needed and explained the best way to install it. Overall, Hitch Source provides a good quality service. They will be my "go to" place for any towing accessories I need.
Jason made this a very easy purchase. Everything I needed arrived in 3 shipments, so install took a little longer. Directions were clear and easy to follow. Jeep is now ready to tow behind the motorhome. Thanks
