Looking good Jason. Do you know how long that cart will go on a charge ?

What did you use for ramps to get it up there ?
I've been thinking about doing this with mine.

Set of Werner metal ramps. Went right in and fits fine.

Yup, the R402's. The gentleman I bought the cart from gave me the ramps. So that was a plus!

A friend and I installed my Roadmaster baseplate on the Colorado yesterday morning. Took about 5 hours. Could have been less if I wasn't so picky about painting and hiding the breakaway and power plug black so they don't show much.

As usual, I am glad I did it myself as there was something I did differently than the instructions which I consider major.

They replace the tow hooks and should line up nice with the Bershire receiver.

No crossbar with this one. But that means I cannot use the tow defender, or whatever they call it.

My Enclave required a cross bar but the Jeep didn't. When I traded the Jeep in for the MKX I was in Florida. I found it requires a cross bar. I have two in Michigan in storage so I really didn't want to buy another one. Mi was able to hook it up without one safely but it wasn't right. I have it all fixed now with the cross bar.
I have two cross bars and two rock guards. Junk we accumulate and never need.

I know. I have now added that crossbar to my junk collection.
Probably hard to sell it alone without tow bar and/or baseplate.

Nice, all blacked out also. Thumbs up

Are you still going to try Towing without disconnecting the battery? I had a thought about that today. Think I'm going to keep call connected to the truck while towing. That way I can tell if there any strange noises back there.
