Blue Ox base plates



Has anyone seen the negative sides of the Blue Ox base plates for Ford Explores???
I have read a few on another forum and boy howdy ,,, they connect their base plates via the tow hooks :eek:
and they are ripping out the frames of the toads ,, i have seen 4 post on this subject,,, but i gotta say that a couple of them did not have their breakaway cables hooked right ,,, but at least no one was hurt or killed just the toad damaged,,, i have a Demco on my Durango ,, and u better believe me i double ckd all the bolts on it ,,, i connect my breakaway to the frame of the toad and not to the base plate ,, as u should ... but anyway just thought i try to get some insight on this :)

730, I have also read these threads and can't believe they use the tow hooks for mounts. My breakaway is also hooked to the frame.
