I’m very pleased with this adapter bar. I bought a road master tow bracket kit. But the curt tow bar that I bought to save money wouldn’t bolt up to the bracket. This bar fixed the problem and saved me money and time. Very simple installation. Thank you

  • Economical Tow Bar Options for Flat Towing a 2005 Saturn Vue
    The first thing you are going to need to flat tow your 2005 Saturn Vue is a base plate kit. If you have a 6-cylinder model you will need a Roadmaster base plate kit # 3121-1. If you have a 4-cylinder model you will need a Roadmaster Base Plate Kit # 3111-1. I wish we sold something that would adapt base plate kit to the # 74344 tow bar that you have, but at this time we do not carry anything.

  • What Parts are Needed to Flat Tow a 2000 Chevy Suburban with a Reese Tow Bar
    There are several components you will need to flat tow your 2000 Chevy Suburban. But before we get into that you should check the owners manual of your vehicle to determine if there are any restrictions on your vehicle being flat-towed. If you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle you would be good to go, if you have a 2 wheel drive vehicle you would need to install a lube pump from my research.

  • Base Plates, Wiring, and Safety Cables to Flat Tow a 2001 Subaru Forester

  • Base Plate Recommendation for a 2007 Chevy Express Van
    There are base plate kits available that have been confirmed to fit your 2007 Chevy Express Van. If you have a 1500 2-wheel drive you would want the part # 3152-1. If you have a 2500 or 3500 you would want the # 3140-1. The Tow Ready Tow bar part # 63180 that you referenced wouldn't work for you since it has a 5,000 lb capacity and your van will weigh more than that. Also, this tow bar is only rated for speeds of 45 miles per hour. In addition to the base plates, you will also need...

  • Can a Jeep Wrangler be Flat Towed by the Front Bumper
    I have a solution for you, however, I would not recommend mounting a tow bar directly to a bumper on a Jeep, whether it is OEM or an aftermarket bumper. Jeep does not recommend towing the Wrangler with the OEM bumper because it was not designed to pull the weight of the vehicle. Also, mounting a tow bar to a bumper would require drilling. I spoke with my contact at Pavement Ends and she said drilling into this bumper would void the warranty and they do not recommend using it to tow the...
