Switching baseplate on tow vehicles
Roadmaster 4427-1A 11-15 Ford Explorer Includes 13-15 Sport XL Baseplate
I have a Baseplate Kit 4427-1A attached to my Ford Explorer now. I want to get a Jeep Wrangler as my primary tow vehicle, years 2010-13 most likely. To save money, I want to switch out my baseplate on my Explorer and put it on my Jeep Wrangler. Can do this, also, I have an invisible break. (roadmaster) can this be switched out as well.

The baseplate for the 2010-2013 Wranglers are very different from that of the Explorer and you would need to purchase a new baseplate. Usually baseplates are very vehicle specific. The 4427-1A baseplate fits the 2011-2015 Explorer and the 2013-2015 Explorer Sport. I would need to know the exact year of the Wrangler and if there are any aftermarket add ons or specialty bumpers to be able to find the correct baseplate for the Jeep Wrangler.
The Invisibrake can be transferred to the Wrangler, at minimum, you need the control box and air cylinder/cable combo and then a new vehicle kit, Part# 98700. Otherwise, you could remove all the components from the Explorer.
The Roadmaster 98700 is available to purchase over the phone. The cost on this new vehicle kit for the invisibrake is $146.20. You can call in at 866.332.7881 and any of our sales representatives would be happy to help.
