When it is time to tow your Jeep behind your truck or motor home and need a reliable tool, look for the all new Smittybilt Tow Bar kit which features a 5000lb GVW capacity that fits any standard 2in. ball.
This tow bar is well build and very easy to assemble. The only problem I see with it is the D ring connection. In my opinion there is a too much play in the 3/4 inch hole of the D ring on the smitty built d ring bumper. just my opinion
It hooks up to the shackle mounts nicely. Comes with brackets for a flat surface bumper to. Has very little up and down movement. Be sure the ball you are hooking up to has the correct rise or drop to make it level. Plenty of side to side movement for turning. Tow my jeep to St. Louis from Springfield with our dodge ram to visit family. Only do 60 MPH. Gets squirrely past that. Unhook and we have both cars. She can go see her family and I can see mine. Saves us 50 bucks each way. Will pay for it self in no time. Box it came in is weak for the weight. It was retaped by ups after a bushing fell out. Got a replacement by fitting 2 sizes inside each other at Ace hardware to make one the correct size. Works great.
Will this work with a Warn Rock Crawler front bumper with D ring brackets. 2001 Wrangler Sport manual 5 speed.

Hi Phillip, This Smittybilt Jeep Tow Bar is designed for the Smittybilt bumper with the attached d-ring mounts, we have not checked with Warn to verify if it will install on their bumper with the d ring brackets, it's most likely just for the Smittybilt bumper. Thank you for your inquiry.

Anyone know the part#, or specs on the d-ring spacers? Lost a set and need new ones.
Asked by Josh from Tx on
Hi Josh, Smittybilt has no part number for the d-ring spacers, however we were able to get some specs on them. They are 1 1/8" long, the ID is 1/2" and the OD is 7/8". Thanks for the inquiry.

does this tow bar work with a XRC bumper ?
Asked by JB from culver city, ca. on
JB, the Smittybilt Jeep Tow Bar is a universal part but it comes with all of the hardware for a factory or aftermarket bumper like the XRC. Hope this helps!
