Video Transcript for Tow Ready Tow Bars 63180 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number 63180. This is a Tow Ready Adjustable Tow Bar rated at 5000 pounds. It is a very lightweight system weighing only 31 pounds. The arms can adjust from 24 inches to 41 inches for a nice universal fit. You can see as long as the hardware is loosened up that you can adjust the arms as needed. Once you have it set to your particular width or the measurement that you need all you've got to do is tighten down the hardware and you'll be set to go. The tow bar mounting brackets are going to bolt securely to the vehicle bumper.

That's going to be these right here. All the hardware is included. Most applications require a custom bracket due to bumper design. It's also going to feature the heavy duty quick latch A-frame coupler which is this portion up here. This is designed for a 2 inch ball.

You can see here that it has a trigger style latch, and on that latch mechanism it does have a slot. That way you can install a coupler pin or a coupler lock for further security. That's going to require a pin or a lock with a diameter of a 1/4 of an inch. The tow bar comes assembled straight out of the box complete with installation instructions. Safety chain U-bolts are sold separately with a safety chain kit. You need to check in and see if your state requires the use of double safety chain because most states do, or some states do.

You need to check in on that. If you take a closer look at the mounting bracket the mounting holes are going to be separated center on center by 4 inches. The mounting bracket is going to give us an overall length of 5-1/2 inches and a width of 2 inches. Please keep in mind that the weight of the vehicle must not exceed 5000 pounds or exceed the weight of the towing vehicle. This tow bar system is rated for a maximum speed of 45 miles per hour. Once you have brackets installed on the vehicle you can see that it's just a really easy connection.

All you have to do is place them over the eyelet right there and then you can secure it using the included pin and safety clip. It just goes right through there, bring it out the other hole, and then attach the safety pin on the other side. It's made from a steel construction. It has a really nice finish on it so it is going to stand up really well against rust and corrosion providing many years of use. That's going to do it for our review of part number 63180. This is the Tow Ready Adjustable Tow Bar rated at 5000 pounds. .

Let me start by saying you can't find a better company to work with than etrailer. I placed an order for a Blue Ox tow bar only to find out later that the tow bar hadn't even been manufactured so a reliable deliver date could not be provided. I told the sales rep that I needed the bar ASAP since I had a trip planned and needed to tow my Suzuki Sidekick behind my motorhome. They suggested I change my order for one that was in stock but was told that it would be 7-10 days before it would arrive. I placed the order but expressed my displeasure over the length of time it would take to get to me. Since I didn't want to pay for expedited shipping, I took my chances that it would arrive in time. To my surprise it can two days later. The sales rep apparently picked up on my frustration on the delivery interval and took it upon himself to make sure the tow bar got to me in time for my trip. Thanks again for such great customer service. 500149

I tow a race car all over the place, and I can truthfully say that this is probably the best tow bar I have ever owned. It’s the FIRST one that I have owned and felt comfortable enough to check it a coupla times and then forget it! For the quality of the product, it has an excellent price tag! Absolutely, I would recommend this to my closest friends! 392967

Its GOT to be one of the sturdiest and best-made tow bars I have ever owned. Easy on and off...never have to stop and check it any longer as I know it is right.

George I am impressed with you and your web page. Your written attitude is something out of the past as I am an old timer who misses the politeness of my past. Keep on being you.

  • Tow Bar and Accessories for Flat Towing a 2004 Jeep Wrangler Behind Motorhome
  • You can use a tow bar like the Tow Ready # 63180 to tow your 2004 Wrangler, but keep in mind, the tow bar is NOT rated for speeds above 45 mph. If the Jeep has the U-channel bumper with the flat front, you can use part # 40602 to provide an attachment point to the vehicle. In order to run at highway speeds, I recommend using a tow bar like the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar, part # RM-520 and base plate kit # RM-521424-4 which is compatible with OEM double tube bumpers.
