Video Transcript for Review of Blue Ox Tow Bar Parts - Aftermarket Off-Road Bumper Adapter - BX88357

Ellen: Hey everyone, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com, and we're going to be taking a look at the adapters for your off-road bumper to work with your Blue Ox tow bar. So this allows you to bypass having to get a tow bar to flat tow that Jeep behind your RV and allows you to use that aftermarket bumper for that flat tow setup.Now, this works with a specific number of tow bars from Blue Ox. So those are the names of those on the screen there listed. So you'll have the Aladdin, Alpha, Allure, Ascent, Avail and the Aventa XL. And then it also works for the 1987 through 2018 Jeep Wranglers. That's going to be the YJ, the TJ and the JK.

And for that JK it also works for the JK Unlimited. So as long as you have that bumper on the front with the D-rings, this should work out well.So let's take a closer look at our brackets and make sure that they're going to be a good fit for you. Basically it comes down to the hardware here. So our pins that connect into the off-road bumper, these are going to be a 7/8" diameter, and then our harbor at the back that connects us to our tow bar, this is a 1/2" diameter pin. So as long as you're connecting it to something that has those matching diameters, this should be a good fit.And it allows you to just switch out the ends here and get that connected up.

We'll have all the hardware included here so we can get that connection made pretty quickly. So it's just a matter of loosening up the original bolt, putting that back on there. It does come with a couple of plastic washers to allow that end to turn. So you want to make sure that you put one on either side as you're sliding that in place. And then our three washers here for our connection are going to take up the gap for that aftermarket bumper.

So you can use those as needed to make sure that it's a nice secure fit.The weight capacity with these is going to be 10,000 pounds. Of course, you do want to check your owner's manual for the bumper, make sure that it's up to the task and also for your tow bar itself. And you want to go off of the lowest number of any of those components in between. You're really only as strong as your weakest link there.As far as the details, the max hole diameter that this can work with is a 0.934" hole, and the minimum hole diameter that it can work with is a 0.871. The plate thickness here is between 5/8" and 1", and that's where those spacers come into play.

So you can utilize them as needed. It is made in the USA, it comes with a one-year warranty.And that's pretty much all there is to it for our look at the Blue Ox, aftermarket off-road bumper adapters. I hope this video has been helpful in deciding if this is the right kit for you. Again, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..

This adapter lets you use your motorhome-mounted Blue Ox tow bar with your aftermarket off-road bumper.

Nice heavy adapters. Comes with 6 shim washers. I used one on each adapter. I used JB weld to hold them in place so I don't have to fool with them. Arrived quickly in a nice heavy box. I'm using them on my 2021 Jeep Wrangler with a Blue Ox Avail tow bar.

You were the only ones that actually the part in stock. Shipped to me in three days. Good service on the phone plus I received the part when you said I would. One frustration, the cost was almost $100 more that from the original manufacture, I had to have the part quickly as Blue Ox production was six weeks out. The part cost is out of line anyway for two eyelets. Thanks

Works well but way overpriced. Two eyelets to hook up to a factory steel bumper were as much as the base plate. That is wrong. They work great, one issue, they painted the shim washers, I had to sand that off to make them work better, added a shot of lithium grease.

Worked well but very difficult to get the washers in place. One thicker washer would be better.

Just what I needed. I have a wrangler with an off road bumper and winch and needed adapters for my blue ox tow bar. The first adapter I order was to large and etrailer said no problem. I sent the first one back, got the right one and now it’s Moab bound!!!
