Thank you all for your inputs, always helps to talk it over. I've decided to go with the Roadmaster base plates since it (#1424-1) fits the 2005 Wrangler while only having to drill one hole. Yeah, that bumper looks real good JC, but I think I'll stick with the stock one for now. Haven't decided on the tow yet but all of them will require the same brackets on the jeep anyhow. What amazes me is that you can spend more on the brackets than the bar depending on which bar is selected, seems over priced to me...I could have made them back in the day!

The Warn front bumper will work with the Blue Ox without a base plate.
Also looks very nice. Click image for larger version

New question on the Jeep toads far as hooking up. I have brackets installed and am ordering the Roadmaster Falcon 2 tow bar. Looking at the wiring kits now it is again becoming very convaluted as to what is plug and play for my 2005 Wrangler. Any familiar with this?

If you are talking about the wire harness for the tail lights look at CoolTech.com, I got mine from them for my '09 Sahara. They plug into the DS tail light, then all you have to do is run the wire to the front and hook up the plug to it.

Thanks CC but I checked with them already and they only have them from 2007 and newer.

I did that this afternoon NV245. I called them to verify compatability and whether it was plug and play, the answer to both was yes and I'll have it on Wednesday. Very friendly and knowledgeable! Thanks

Glad you were able to get "hooked up". I was going to suggest Mopar since Cool Tech didn't have one for you.

I got a Blue Ox Kit, cost about $195 but was well worth it. Pull the factory harness from each taillight and plug their harness in between, stuck the control box in the DS taillight well and ran the wiring to the front bumper. Slick as could be, no diodes, no splicing, etc.
