Towbar attachment for flat towing wrangler

Post by Zulu » Tue Sep 01, 2015 8:51 pm

Looking for some help with attaching Reese tow bar to 2004 wrangler with stock front bumper. Online ad said package contained base plate for mounting but nothing in package. Looking for someone in SOMD that can assist with attaching the bar for safe cross country move. Have contacted RV store and truck mod shops with no luck. Thanks for any help.

What model tow bar did you buy? Something like this? If you have gone to the local RV dealers and come up dry then I am sure you have already called customer service on the missing parts issue?

I thought lowes / home depot had something but they dont. Of course you can fab what you need from there. Found this on walmarts website Not sure where you are located so see if they have something in stock or can ship to you or the store quickly. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Demco-9518112 ... l/44032610
Can I get a push?

Thanks, I decided to upgrade my front bumper and will attach the tow bar bracket direct to the stronger bumper. Appreciate the ideas.
