Will the Blue Ox Acclaim Tow Bar Fit With the 22 inch Tabs on the Base Plate Kit for a 2013 Fiat 500


Hello, I purchased the Blue Ox baseplate with removable pins from you a couple of weeks age. Will this fit BX4330? The tabs are 22 inch apart. Thanks


Expert Reply:

The Blue Ox Acclaim, part # BX4330, that you referenced in your question will fit Blue Ox removable-tab base plates that are spaced between 23 inches - 30 inches, so they Acclaim will not work for your application.

The Blue Ox Adventurer, part # BX7322, would be the appropriate tow bar that you will need to use instead. It is rated for 5,000 lbs just like the Acclaim, but it is compatible with Blue Ox base plate tabs that are spaced 16 inches - 34 inches. You will need to make sure that you have safety cables as well, like part # BX88196, as the Adventurer does not come with safety cables.

If you like the adjustability of the Acclaim, and if you have a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver, then you might want to take a look at the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar, part # BX7380. This tow bar does not use the coupler style attachment that the Acclaim or Adventurer does, but it has the retractable arms which are more flexible and it can fit Blue Ox tabs spaced between 16 inches - 36 inches. If you have the 2 inch receiver then I recommend going with this option, since the Adventurer is more of an entry level tow bar. This tow bar does come with the safety cables so you will not have to worry about that part.
