Exactly what I needed! Works great! The ones that came with the blue ox system were oriented the wrong way for my tow vehicle. This solved the problem perfectly and Vicki was a great help to get me lined up to what I needed to order. She followed up on my order to, making sure it worked. I had a packaging issue with the delivery box being damaged and a part missing ( not etrailer’s fault at all) . I called and explained and she immediately resolved the issue so I could get my tow vehicle hooked up and get to travelling our beautiful country. I’ve been on the road 15 months and the one thing that has been amazing is this item, the adapters, and the blue ox system, along with the braking system I bought from etrailer! Thank you thank you for providing quality items and quality technical support!!



by:

Nice heavy adapters. Comes with 6 shim washers. I used one on each adapter. I used JB weld to hold them in place so I don't have to fool with them. Arrived quickly in a nice heavy box. I'm using them on my 2021 Jeep Wrangler with a Blue Ox Avail tow bar.

No issues at all. Works great.



by:

E trailer is awesome!!! SUPER EASY AND THEY ARE SUPER HELPFUL IF YOU NEED INFO!!!



by:

Great service. Original order came with mismatched parts (one was bigger than the other). No fault of eTrailer. Contacted the manufacturer and they sent a new set and covered return shipping. Adapters are very heavy duty and come with spacers to ensure a good fit. Oly complaint is the paint started chipping within a week. no problem - I'm used to repainting trailer hitch and Tow Bar hardware regularly.



by:

Fast delivery. Easy transaction. Good communication. Thank you very much.



by:

as advertised, good quality



by:

Work great with Jeep after market bumper



by:

This adapter seems very good quality. Super stout, heavy weight and solid part. I haven’t installed or used it yet. This part arrived about two days later than the originally quoted ETA, I couldn’t install it for our last trip. But I have little doubt that it will work as advertised.



by:

Ordered and was put in mail same day. Product is as it should.



by:

Great pricing and help with any questions you may have



by:

Thank you Gwendolyn! We received the parts on time and everything fit!



by:

Always ship quick! Next days, 2, or 3 day shipping is pointless if you take 3 days to ship. You can always count on your stuff to ship in most cases next day!



by:

The adapters worked as described. The only issue I have is the price. Compared to other manufacturers, the Blue Ox adapters were double in price.

However, the delivery process and the customer service from etrailer was amazing which help take the price sting away.



by:

You were the only ones that actually the part in stock. Shipped to me in three days. Good service on the phone plus I received the part when you said I would. One frustration, the cost was almost $100 more that from the original manufacture, I had to have the part quickly as Blue Ox production was six weeks out. The part cost is out of line anyway for two eyelets. Thanks

Works well but way overpriced. Two eyelets to hook up to a factory steel bumper were as much as the base plate. That is wrong. They work great, one issue, they painted the shim washers, I had to sand that off to make them work better, added a shot of lithium grease.



by:

I give etrailer full marks. I ordered my parts and there was a packaging error from the manufacturer . etrailer was very responsive in getting me a new order shipped. They always answered the phone, were professional and caring.



by:

Etrailer.com offers a wide range of products at competitive prices. The website is easy to navigate, and it offers helpful written and video instructions on the installation and use of many items they sell. Shopping at etrailer.com is easy, and shipping is fast. I highly recommend etrailer.com to those looking for items associated with RVing, towing, and camping.



by:

Just what I needed. I have a wrangler with an off road bumper and winch and needed adapters for my blue ox tow bar. The first adapter I order was to large and etrailer said no problem. I sent the first one back, got the right one and now it’s Moab bound!!!



by:

Exactly what I needed and shipping was right on time. Instructions are easy tof follow.



by:

James was very helpful in trying to set me up with all the items that were
needed to pull a jeep behind my motor home.
The extra parts that were ordered were returned and payed back to my account
in a very timely manner. Great experience!



by:

well made and easy to install on the tr uck

great towed to Montana from Ca and back it worked flawless. so easy to connect



by:

well they look good haven't had a chance to put them together yet.



by:

I really liked how quickly you replaced the part I needed. I really appreciated it. I enjoyed talking to Roger. I will call you when ever I need something again. You are a great company to deal with.



by:

Worked well but very difficult to get the washers in place. One thicker washer would be better.



by:

Really solid build. Fit perfectly to my bumper and looks like these will last for years to come. I bought a used older tow bar and these fit just fine.



by:

Heavy duty links, well made.
Although
very expensive for two pieces.

  • 2021 Jeep Wrangler Sport recommended Blue Ox Parts for Flat Towing with Off-Road Bumper
    Thanks for all the details Jason! To get a Blue Ox tow bar to fit with the shackles on your 2021 Jeep Wrangler Sport you'll need either the 7/8" # BX88357 or 1" # BX88358 Adapters, but just be sure to check with the manufacturer of your off-road bumper because not all bumpers with shackles are rated for flat towing. With that being said, here are the parts I recommend for your application: - Tow Bar Adapters 7/8" # BX88357 or 1" # BX88358 - Blue Ox Avail Non-Binding Tow Bar # BX7420 ...

    If you do not have a 7/8" pin and need a larger one, you will need the Blue Ox Aftermarket Bumper Adapter - 1" Pin # BX88358. This includes pins, clips, washers, and lock nuts and will get you the clearance needed to fit your Smittybilt XRC Gen2 bumper.

    Per the manufacturer the RedRock 4x4 Attack Stubby Winch Front Bumper is not tow rated. You can not flat tow your Jeep using this bumper and D-rings. If you decide on a bumper for your 2013 Jeep Wrangler that is tow rated, I recommend the following. If you are looking for a tow bar that has a coupler, the Blue Ox Acclaim Non-Binding Tow Bar, # BX4330 with a 2" ball coupler is my suggestion.

  • How To Attach Your Safety Cables When Using D-Ring Adapters To Flat Tow
    Typically when using D-Ring adapters # BX88357 you'll have to snake some shorter cables, like # RM-910648-20 around the frame rail of the vehicle and then out to the front of the vehicle to connect to your safety cables. There's no easy definitive answer on how to do this since there's too many variables between each model and the aftermarket bumper so it may take you a bit of time to figure out the best way with your specific setup.

For the adapter you have the following options: 1" Thick D-Rings # RM-035-1 3/4" Thick D-Rings # RM-035 These adapters will work with the Roadmaster motor-home-mounted tow bars. For that I recommend the Roadmaster Falcon All-Terrain Tow Bar # RM-522. This is a very solid non-binding tow bar rated for 6,000 lbs. We made a few videos highlighting...

  • How Can I Adapt The SD Non-Binding Tow Bar e34ZR To D-Rings On A Jeep Bumper?
    Hey good morning, David. We do have a solution for you. What you can do is replace the clevis end of your # e34ZR tow bar with part # DM9523041. This will allow your etrailer SD Non-Binding Tow Bar to work with the Blue Ox brand base plates. You can then use the Blue Ox brand D-ring adapters to connect to the bumper of your Gladiator. The Blue Ox adapters are available in the following sizes: 7/8" D-Rings # BX88357 1" D-Rings # BX88358

    Congrats on the new truck Wayne! I would be happy to make suggestions but I wanted to address one of the parts you got with your RV.

  • Can 2015 Ram 3500 with Fabfours Bumper be Flat Towed
    You can probably come up with a way to install the Blue Ox base plate kit part # BX1989 on your 2015 Ram and fit with your Fabfours bumper but we don't have specific instructions for that or how much modification would be required. It does look like your bumper has D-rings so a D-ring adapter base plate kit would be a solution like with the part # BX88357 for if they are 7/8 inch or the part # BX88358 for if they are 1 inch.

    That's actually a bumper that your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Jurassic Park edition did not come with from the factory so you would need to go a different route. What you have is an Oedra bumper. Since your aftermarket bumper has D-rings you'd need to go with the D-ring base plate kit adapters like the part # BX88358. This kit fits 1 inch D-rings like it looks like your bumper has. If instead you have 7/8 inch D-rings you'd want the part # BX88357.
