Great tow bar for my 1995 Wrangler, only reason I’m not giving it 5 Stars is bc I couldn’t use the predrilled holes on the bumper....but that’s a minor complaint in my book, I ended up using the 2 inside predrilled holes on my bumper as the outside holes for the brackets.....this made it hard to get the tow bar wide enough to fit, but it did fit. Once I got it together, I tightened everything down. Tows like a champ



- C19745
by:

As always, the merchandise was received promptly and consistent with my order. Curt products have served me very well over the years---fine design, high quality production and excellent customer service.

by:

I ordered a towbar from etrailer. You guys never let me down. The towbar is great and the instructions were very complete. I got it all installed very easily and I am now ready to tow my Jeep to Big Bend National Park. If you need to tow a Jeep or any vehicle that weighs less than 5,000lbs you can't go wrong for the price.



- C19745
by:

Delivered as promised!!!Arrived in just a few days and putting it together was a snap. All parts accounted for and easy instructions. Total work time to install was about 1 hour with no adjustments necessary and it allowed my Jeep to flat tow behind my pickup flawlessly. I would definatly purchase the Curt Tow Bar again and recommend it to friends and family.



- C19745
by:

Tow bar arrived on time and in good shape. Some assembly was required, had helpfull instructions, everything fit together properly and took about forty five minutes to assemble. You will need to figure out the best way to install safety chains, as they are not included and I can understand, because every application would be different. I will be towing my Jeep Wrangler behind my 40 foot Beaver Coach.

Great Tow Bar, it has towed my Jeep Wrangler over 4,000 miles without a hitch...pun.

I was told that it isn't compatible with the Roadmaster EZ5 but I added 4 bushings to the attachment tab assembly holes on the base plate and I'm good to go at one third the cost. Excellent quality.



- C19745
by:

The tow bar came faster than it was expected and seems to be high quality especially considering the price. The packaging left a little to be desired. The box was starting to fall apart and was held shut by one little piece of tape. However nothing seems to be missing so all is well and I am a happy customer.

by:

I purchased the Curt Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms - Car Mount - 2" Ball - 5,000 lbs. initially I was Leary of the product because of its low price compared to other tow bars. I now can say my concerns were needless because after flat towing my Wrangler over 5,000 trouble-free miles I have nothing negative but only positives to report. The best thing I like about the tow At is that it only takes 5 minutes to attach and unhook.


Comments
My toe bar is functioning like new! I went from tying down my Harley which took at least 45 minutes to hooking up my Wrangler in 5 minutes. I’ve never had an issue and I never even Cantel my wrangler is behind me. It tracks perfectly with no excessive wear on the wranglers front tires. I give this product a 10 out of 10! And yes, I would certainly buy it again.

My Curt tow bar is works great, easy to install and hook up. I installed it on my 1990 Jeep Comanche pickup to be pulled behind our RV and it does the job. I don’t worry about possible decouple like the more expensive tow bars. When not in use, I can stow it in place on my truck or quickly disconnect and stow it in the truck bed or storage compartment. Great investment!



- C19745
by:

I purchased this tow bar for my 2002 Chevy S10. I did so thinking that it needed no adapter plate per the website. It will not work without an adapter plate of some sort. Do you know of anything I can purchase to complete this tow bar?


Comments
The bumper brackets that come with the tow bar part C19745 attach to a flat, metal section of your vehicles bumper. If a flat metal surface is not available then modification and fabrication maybe required. The coupler on the other end of the tow bar attaches to the 2 inch ball on your motorhome.

Disappointed. I purchased this equipment to allow me to tow home a jeep I bought. The hardware provided was incompatible. The bolts and nuts had different machine threads. I had to drive 15 miles away to find a hardware store that had the right nuts to match the bolts. When I contacted e-trailer they were only willing to credit me $15. Hardly appropriate for the inconvenience to the seller and myself. I would strongly recommend test fitting all parts provided before installation. Sincerely, PJ



- C19745
by:

Towing a Jeep TJ, had a similar bar, used it for 10000 mi and the bumper mount brackets were showing a litttle wear, so decided to replace with the Curt. Seems like this one is a better quality(welds, hitch, bumper brackets etc). Have put 1000 mi on this one so far, and am very pleased.



- C19745
by:

Great, solid construction. However, incorrect bolts and nuts accompanied the product. Bolt and nut were of two different measurements. eTrailer sent replacement nuts and bolts, which were also incorrect. It was easy for me to purchase correct nuts at local hdwe store.



- C19745
by:

We installed these trailer hitches on some dumpsters that needed to get towed from a sub-floor up to street level for trash days. They were very straight forward and fairly easy to install. They look good on there, nice and clean. These were a great fix for a problem that had me scratching my head for a few weeks. I would definitely recommend these to others that need tow hitch solutions.



- C19745
by:

This is a very heavy duty tow bar. It was inexpensive, so I was not sure how strong it would be until it arrived. I was impressed. I'm certain it will work well, once I install it.



- C19745
by:

Can't beat it for the money! Easy setup and solid construction. Much better than those ones that aren't one piece bars.

    The Curt tow bar # C19745 is rated for 5000-lbs capacity. According to my research the 1994 Dodge B250 cargo van can have a curb weight ranging from 3734-lbs (for the B250 3-door van) up to 3863-lbs (for the B250 3-door extended van) or 4800-lbs (for the B250 Maxi 3-door extended van). While all versions are within the tow bar rating your safety margin is pretty slim (only 200-lbs) in the case of the B250 Maxi 3-door. This tow bar does NOT require base plates on the vehicle.

    The Curt Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms # C19745 is made for the included bumper brackets to be installed on a flat part of a the bumper on towed vehicle, but you will want to make sure the area is rigid enough to pull the vehicle. If you do not feel that the stock bumper is strong enough on your 2000 Ford F-150 you will need to have a mount fabricated for the bumper brackets to install to. I included a video of the Curt # C19745 for you to take a look at.

  • Does Curt Tow Bar # C19745 Have Weight Capacity for Towing Jeep Wrangler
    Most Jeep Wranglers weight under 4,500 lbs from what I was able to find which the Curt tow bar # C19745 would easily have enough capacity for. If you get back to me with what year Wrangler you have I can verify for sure it's weight but I would be shocked if it was anywhere near 6,000 lbs.

  • How Should 2016 Honda Civic be Flat Towed behind RV
    The Curt tow bar part # C19745 that you referenced is designed to attach to a flat metal bumper directly. Since a 2016 Honda Civic won't have that you'd need to go a different route to flat tow the vehicle. Also, you should note that Honda states that your vehicle can only be flat towed on a tow dolly and not with all four wheels on the ground. So for a tow dolly the Roadmaster dolly part # RM-2050-1 would be a great option with electric brakes.

  • Does Curt Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms Have a Speed Rating
    There is no specific speed rating associated with the Curt Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms # C19745. When using this or any other tow bar you are going to want to not only follow your local laws but look in your tow vehicle's owner's manual to see if it has any speed restrictions.

  • Do Safety Chains Attach to Curt Tow Bar C19745
    Safety chains don't normally attach to tow bars. They normally attach to the safety chain loops of the tow vehicle and then to the base plate kit or frame of the vehicle that is being flat towed. That way if the tow bar some how gets disconnected the chains are still attached to the vehicle and RV. A lot of people really like the coiled safety chains like part # RM-643 which you would coil around the arms of the tow bar to keep them off the ground.
