2011 Blue Ox Base PLate

Does anyone know if jeep made any changes from 2010 to 2011 on the front bumper mounts. I talked to Blue Ox and they have not installed a base plate (for towing) on any 2011 wranglers. I would think that the 2007-2010 base plate should fit the 2011 any opinions??

I know there was some change for the base plate install onto 2010's from the 07-09's (same plate just some mounting differences). Hard to imagine something else on the frame would change again to the 11's....

I agree. Find a place that will let you return it if it doesn't fit. You should be able to confirm it will fit without taking the bumper off or marking up the baseplate. I just took off the factory bumper on a 2011 and replaced with one from LoD (with Blue Ox tabs added as a custom mod) and everything went according to 2010 and prior instructions. I had the 2010 Blue Ox baseplate install instructions printed to use and compare to others I'd seen on-line and I didn't see any differences. Only issues might be if the holes in the side of the frame rails have moved, as it wasn't necessary to use those on the bumper install.

Thanks for the replys. The main issue would probably be hole position, and it sounds like it should not be a problem.

I just installed a Rock Hard full length bumper and Warn Power Plant on my 2011 and had no issues with fitment.

The only part I've installed that didn't fit correctly is Rugged Ridge rear slush mats, they're way too small.
