I have a 2005 lj (Jeep) with a stubby bumper, am glad they had this for my Jeep, they are quality! I just wish they came with the tow hitch. Now have 2 useless brackets! 617411

I had trouble understanding the shipping time on the etrailer website so I called them and everything went great from then on. Shery took my info over the phone, the part shipped soon there after and I got it a week later which is exactly what I was told. I installed the part yesterday and the quality is fantastic. 518660

  • Tow Bar for Using D-Ring Bumper Mounts on 1997 Jeep TJ With Bulldog Stubby Bumper
  • I spoke with a representative of Blue Ox, who informed me that the older BX7330 tow bar would not work with the Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Brackets for Bulldog Stubby Bumpers # BX88303. To flat tow with a Bulldog Stubby # BDW21000 you would need a Blue Ox tow bar compatible with the Blue Ox Adapter Brackets such as the Blue Ox Alpha # BX7365. I've added links to video reviews of each tow bar for you to take a look at.

  • Though we do not have an adapter specially designed for the ARB bumper on your 2018 Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited, the Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Brackets part # BX88303 may still work for you. This adapter is designed to work with a 3/4" tabs with 7/8" diameter pins. They are compatible with the Blue Ox Aladdin, Alpha, and Aventa LX tow bars.

  • Blue Ox Base Plates for 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with ARB Stubby Bumper
  • I reached out to my contact at Blue Ox and he said for the ARB Stubby Bumper on your 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited you will need to go with D-Ring adapter brackets to connect with a tow bar. If the bumper uses 3/4 inch diameter D-rings you can use part # BX88303 and if it uses 7/8 inch D-rings use # BX88296. I also recommend verifying with the manufacturer that this bumper is rated for towing. These will attach to the D-rings on the bumper to provide a connection point for Blue Ox tow...

  • Recommended Tow Bar D-Ring Adapters for 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • If the 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has 3/4 inch thick D-ring bumper mounts, then you will need the tow bar adapter brackets # BX88303. If it has 7/8 inch diameter lug pins then you will use # BX88296 instead. Both of these are compatible with the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7365. I've attached installation details and a video to assist. Your other option would be to get the Roadmaster Adapter for Jeep D-Ring Bumper Mounts to Roadmaster Motor Home Mount Tow Bars - 3/4" Thick # RM-035...

  • Base Plate Kit for 2004 Jeep Wrangler Compatible with Blue Ox 6,500 lb Tow Bar
  • I believe the Blue Ox tow bar you are referring to is the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7365 rated for 6,500 lbs. There are a variety of base plate kits available for your 2004 Jeep Wrangler and the correct one all depends on what kind of bumper you have. Below is a list of the compatible base plate kits. Please note that the D-Ring options are for bumpers that have been rated for flat towing. Off-Road Bumper with 1 inch D-Ring Bumper Mounts - # BX88296 Double Tube Bumper - # BX1120 (Fixed...

  • Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Brackets for 2014 Jeep Wrangler with Paramount Bumper
  • Based on the tab dimensions you provided for the Paramount Off-Road Bumper on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler, you will need the Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Brackets # BX88303. I confirmed this as well with my contact at Blue Ox. These 3/4 inch bumper mounts will attach to the tabs on your Jeep so that you can use your Aventa II tow bar. I do recommend making sure that the Paramount Bumper is rated for towing the Jeep. This kit includes the brackets, pins, clips, washers, and lock nuts.

  • Which Adapters Work with the Bulldog Stubby Front Bumper Part # BDW21000 for a 2005 Jeep TJ
  • Yes, the Bulldog Stubby Front Bumper part # BDW21000 for your 2005 Jeep TJ is rated for flat-towing. Unfortunately, there is no way around using an adapter as none of the towbars will come off the shelf ready to couple to this bumper. You will need to use an adapter like part # BX88303 for Blue Ox tow bars or part # RM-035 for Roadmaster tow bars. For a Blue Ox tow bar I recommend using the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar part # BX7365 which has a 6,500 lb weight capacity and comes with safety...

  • Can 2006 Jeep Wrangler be Flat Towed Behind RV Using Bulldog Stubby Bumper
  • Yes you can use the Bulldog Stubby bumper # BDW21000 for flat towing your 2006 Jeep Wrangler. After installing the bumper you will just need the right components to flat tow the Jeep using the bumper. You will need brackets # BX88303 and a compatible tow bar. I recommend the Alpha, # BX7365, since it is rated for 6,500 pounds and comes with safety cables. Next you will need a lighting solution. I recommend diode kit # RM-154 because once it's installed you will not have to worry about...

These will use the bumper and the 3/4 inch D-ring bumper mounts on your Wrangler so that you can hook up to a compatible Blue Ox Tow Bar like the excellent Alpha # BX7365. These are the only brackets we have available that will work with your Bulldog Stubby Bumper.

  • Blue Ox Adapter for Warn D-Ring Bumper on 1999 Jeep Wrangler
  • I suggest using the Blue Ox Adapter Lug for Off-Road Vehicle Bumpers # BX88296 on your Warn bumper. This kit works with Blue Ox tow bars like the Alpha, Aventa, Alladin, Allure and Acclaim and is designed with 7/8-inch diameter lug pins. I do not recommend drilling out your D-rings as this will reduce their capacity to some unknown degree and could also allow for corrosion.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 1998 Jeep Wrangler
  • There are base plate kite solutions for your 1998 Jeep Wrangler with aftermarket bumpers (that we don't currently sell) but it really depends on what style you are wanting. I attached a link to this page that has all of the base plate kits we offer for your vehicle. You'd need to select from the drop down menu what bumper you are wanting.

  • Base Plate Kit for Towing 2016 Jeep JK Wrangler w/Stock Bumper with a Blue Ox Tow Bar
  • If you are talking about D-Rings on your 2016 Jeep JK Wrangler OEM bumper then you simply need to measure the distance between your bumper mounts. If it is 3/4" then use part # BX88303 but if it is 1" use part # BX88296 instead. If you have the OEM bumper and want a base plate kit the correct one for your Blue Ox tow bar is part # BX1126 on our site. This is compatible as long as you don't have the Hard Rock Edition of a 75th Anniversary model. I have attached an installation video and...

  • Base Plate Adapters for 2003 Jeep Wrangler with 3/4" D-Rings to Connect to Blue Ox Tow Bar
  • If you have 3/4 inch thick D-rings on your 2003 Jeep Wrangler then you will want to use the Blue Ox Adapter Brackets # BX88303. These are directly compatible with your Blue Ox Aladdin Tow Bar and will work great to safely pull the vehicle behind an RV. The Roadmaster D-Ring Adapters # RM-035 that you referenced will fit your Jeep with 3/4 inch D-rings but they are not compatible with Blue Ox Tow Bars so they won't work for your application.
