2012-2015 Lincoln MKX 4 down pictures

Does anyone have pictures of the front end of your 2012-2015 Lincoln MKX equipped to be towed 4 down? The MKX is an AWD. It is the only car I own I'm capable of towing, but I use this car for work and there are expectations as to appearance. I can't have large metal rods sticking out the front end and am curious if anyone has a setup not visible? Thanks for the input. My rig is a 2015 Thor Vegas 24.1.

I am looking to outfit my 2015 MKZ Hybrid for flat towing. The Blue Ox base plate has removable attachment tabs. When not towing they can be removed so the metal rods are not sticking out of the vehicle front.

Both Blue Ox and Roadmaster have base plates with removable 'arms' that come out when not towing... The fascia may need to be cut to allow the 'pass through' - but when not towing - nothing would be protruding...

The only other item would be a 'break away' switch for the supplemental braking... That actually sticks out more on my vehicle than anything else when not towing... Not sure how it would be installed on your vehicle - but would think it could be concealed as well.

This is what the Roadmaster plate looks like:



The Blue Ox Look similar.

If you go to the Blue Ox website and pull the installation instructions for your vehicles base plate they may have pictures included. The instructions for the MKZ do.
