  • 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 # BX88357. 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 # BX7380. I've added links to video reviews of each tow bar for you to take a look at.

  • 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 # BX88357.

  • Adapter to Join Blue Ox Tow Bar with Aftermarket Bumper D-Rings
    My technical contact at Blue Ox advised that the only adapter kit they offer that could potentially work on your M.O.R.E. aftermarket Jeep bumper is kit # BX88358. He was not familiar with the M.O.R.E. brand of products. There is a MOVE brand of bumper and based on photos of the D-rings on their products the above kit looks to be a good match since the included pins are 1-inch in diameter.

  • 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.

  • 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.
