This is designed to fit the '87 and newer Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited models that have an aftermarket off road bumper with one inch D ring bumper mounts.

How these adapters will let you use your motorhome mounted Blue Ox tow bar with your Jeep aftermarket off road bumper.

I bought the Blue Ox Bumper Adapter, part # BX88358, for the Hammerhead Armor front bumper we installed on our 2021 Jeep Gladiator Overland. We plan to tow the Jeep behind our motorhome and the adapter lets us do that, while keeping a clean look for the Hammerhead bumper. Love it!

This is the best addition. I had a hammer head number on my F250 and it is much cheaper to just buy these attachments. made hook up and disconnecting so easy my 10 year old son could do it.

  • Base Plate Adapter, Tow Bar, & Braking System to Flat Tow 2016 Jeep Wrangler With XRC Bumper
    Thanks for the photo! Glad you're enjoying the site and we can absolutely get your 2016 Jeep Wrangler with an XRC front bumper ready to flat tow. First you'll need the base plate adapters to connect to your D-rings, and the correct one is going to depend on the size of the pin hole on your bumper, which is likely 7/8" but could be 1" so you'll want to verify that size and then you can use either of the following: - 7/8" Pin: Blue Ox Aftermarket Off-Road Bumper Adapter # BX88357 -...

  • Parts Needed to Tow 2007 Jeep Wrangler JK with Blue Ox D-Ring Adapter Kit
    As long as you've got an aftermarket bumper with D-ring plates at least 5/8" thick, you can use the Blue Ox Aftermarket Bumper Adapter - 1" Pin # BX88358 to flat tow your 2007 Jeep Wrangler. To complete your flat towing setup you'll also need a compatible tow bar, tow bar wiring, safety cables, supplemental braking system and possibly a high/low adapter. For a tow bar I recommend using the Blue Ox Avail Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 10,000 lbs # BX7420, which is compatible with the D-ring...

  • What Adapters can I use for Using the Blue Ox Avail with my Off Road Bumper?
    There are tow fgreat choices for adapters and it will all come down to the diameter of the hole in the D-ring. For a 1" hole use the Blue Ox Aftermarket Bumper Adapter part # BX88358 and for a 7/8" hole diameter use the Blue Ox Aftermarket Off-Road Bumper Adapter part # BX88357. Bth of these will work with d-ring thickness anywhere from 5/8" up to 1".

  • Adapter to Go From Blue Ox Tow Bar to Aftermarket Bumper of 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL with D-Rings
    Since you have a Blue Ox tow bar currently and a 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL you could use the D-ring adapter part # BX88358 to attach to your D-rings. I'd recommend running the safety chains to the frame of the vehicle as that's the most secure location.

  • What Width Mounting Tabs Does Blue Ox Tow Bar Adapter for Hammerhead/Fab Fours Bumpers Fit
    The adapter you mentioned # BX88358 will work for you as we have checked with Blue Ox and this can fit tab widths of 3/4 inch wide, 7/8 inch wide, and 1 inch wide with 1 inch diameter pin holes. The distance between the arms is 1 inch.

  • Do the Blue Ox Aftermarket Bumper Adapters Have a Weight Capacity
    The Blue Ox Aftermarket Bumper Adapter part # BX88358 (1" Pin) and part # BX88357 (7/8" Pin) are an excellent option to attach a motorhome mounted Blue Ox Tow Bar such as the Blue Ox Ascent Tow Bar part # BX4370 to an aftermarket bumper with welded-on d-rings. The adapters don't have any sort of weight capacity but they can handle enough for any of the motorhome mounted tow bars they are designed to be used with so there should be no problems here.

  • Adapter Recommendation for Attaching Tow Bar to Jeep With Rugged Ridge Bumper
    We have an adapter from Blue Ox that is designed for attaching their tow bars to a Rugged Ridge bumper like you have which is part # BX88301. This would be your best option as it was designed for your bumper. The other option is that Roadmaster makes a base plate kit that is designed specifically for the Rugged Ridge buper like you have which is part # 1437-3 which you could attach a Roadmaster tow bar like the Falcon 2 # RM-520 directly to.

  • Solution for Flat Towing 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with Aftermarket Bumper with Blue Ox Tow Bar
    The only solution would be to use the Blue Ox base plate kit adapter for Off-Road Bumpers with 1 inch D-rings part # BX88358 with the bumper you go with as long as it has D-rings and then you can use the Blue Ox tow bar you have now.

  • Adapter that Could be Used with Warn Bumper of 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
    As long as the Warn Elite front bumper you are looking at has the 1 inch D-ring you can use the # BX88358 or if they are 7/8 inch you'd instead need the # BX88357. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. One of the most popular compatible tow bars is the Blue Ox Avail # BX7420 which comes with safety cables. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground. For lighting...

    In order to use a tow bar with a set of welded-on d-rings which are commonly found on aftermarket Jeep bumpers you need a specific type of tow bar, one that mounts on the motorhome when not in use. The Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar part # RM-520 and Blue Ox Alpha 2 Tow Bar part # BX7380 are both examples of motorhome mounted tow bars and are excellent options to use, the best value for the money. In order to use either tow bar with a set of welded-on d-rings you will need an adapter which...

Then for a tow bar you'd want the # BX7420 which is the easiest to use and allows the vehicle to track the best behind the coach. For lighting you'd want the # RM-152-98146-7.

  • Which Bumpers Can I Flat Tow a Jeep Wrangler JLU With Using D-Ring Adapters
    Whether or not you can flat tow with a Jeep bumper is really up to the manufacturers testing; some of the big names like MetalCloak or Poison Spyder have bumpers with D-ring attachments that can be used for flat towing connections. This is great since it doesn't require that you install base plates that might otherwise affect the looks of your Jeep. You'll want to find a bumper that mounts to the frame and has solid D-ring plates built into the bumper, not bolted on for the best compatibility....

Jeep actually had a generation swap mid-year for 2018 models so your 2020 Wrangler Unlimited will use a different base plate kit which I've listed out for you below: Standard Factory Bumper - # BX1139 Off-Road Bumper with 1" D-Ring Mounts with a 1 inch pin diameter - # BX88358 Off-Road Bumper with 1" D-Ring Mounts with a 7/8 inch pin diameter - # BX88357 If you...

  • How To Attach Blue Ox Tow Bar To Aftermarket Jeep Bumper with D-Rings
    In order to choose the correct Blue Ox Aftermarket Off-Road Bumper Adapter for an aftermarket bumper you'll need to measure the d-ring shackle thickness and pin diameter. The max thickness is 1". There is then the part # BX88357 for 7/8" diameter pins or the part # BX88358 for 1" diameter pins. I did some research on the Fab Fours Stubby Bumper and it uses a 7/8" diameter pin.

  • Will Blue Ox Base Plate Fit 2017 Jeep Wrangler with a Smittybilt Front Bumper
    The base plate options for a 2017 Jeep Wrangler are all designed for models with a factory installed front bumper, the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit part # BX1126 for example which is designed to be used with a tow bar like the Blue Ox Alpha 2 Tow Bar part # BX7380. I will say that certain aftermarket front bumpers have built-in d-rings which can be used with a tow bar adapter if allowed by the manufacturer, the Blue Ox Aftermarket Bumper Adapter part # BX88358 or part # BX88357.

  • 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.

Please note that the D-Ring options are for bumpers that have been rated for flat towing. Aftermarket Off-Road Bumper- 7/8" Pin # BX88357 Double Tube Bumper - # BX1120 (Fixed Tabs) OR...

For braking I recommend the Brake Buddy Stealth Supplemental Braking System - Proportional Item # HM39530. This braking system is a one time setup as well and also comes with a battery charger to keep your battery maintained while towing....

  • 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.

While it does add more to the front of the vehicle it does it in a very nice factory look. This has all of the attachment points and will keep you from having a pieced together look. When not in use the arms are removable for an even cleaner look. To use this with your Aventa II tow bar use...

  • D-Ring Adapter For Blue Ox Tow Bar on Jeep Wrangler
    Thanks for that photo, and since you have a bumper with D-ring attachments, you would not need base plates; in fact, base plates wouldn't be able to be installed, so instead you would need a bumper adapter that attaches to the D-ring attachments. Your bumper does need to be rated for flat towing so you'll need to check with the manufacturer to ensure that if you're not certain, but if it is, and if the bumper has a 1" or 7/8" pin hole and the tab is 3/4", 7/8", or 1" then what you will...
