I put the Demco on my 2014 Wrangler. Easy install with basic tools and skills.

I also have installed a Demco base plate and tow bar. It has about 100k miles on the bar now. I have taken it apart about 3 times since 2005 and cleaned it and it still works great. My only suggestion, which is just a personal preference for peace of mind is to get the steel version rated at 10,000 lbs. Most of the Al versions at the time I bought mine were only rated at 6500 lbs. It is heavier than the Al versions but rated much higher. I only remove it in the wintertime so weight is not a problem to me. There have been some early posts on here about the Al Blue Ox failing and a personal friend of mine lost his tow car also with his Al Blue Ox, that is what drove my decision. I'm sure by now any design flaws have been worked out, just feel better with a higher rated tow bar.
