Not a Jeep guy. Saw these posted somewhere & it appears they are used instead of a traditional baseplate.

I have a Blue Ox set up on my 2016 Wrangler. Baseplate is BX1126. Install required drilling 4 holes and cutting plastic skid plate 1/2" * 4" to allow fitting over baseplate.
I have an Ascent towbar
BX4370,
Wiring for Jeep is BX8869
and brake is Patriot 2 BRK2016

Juat wanted to add that the plastic "skid plate" / air dam is generally discarded by most that modify Wranglers and add aftermarket bumpers and add real skid plates Factory JK take off parts are very easy and cheap to find. Check kijij, Marketplace or Craigslist

I have been using the Currie Enterprises skid plate/towbar mount. It works great. It replaces the plastic air dam, which I am saving. It has the tow bar mounts just below the bumper, so I dont't have to use much of a riser for my lifted Jeep.
My Blue Ox tow bar fits in the mounts perfectly. You can get Blue Ox adapters/ends for any tow bar.
