What are Differences between Roadmaster Sterling and Blackhawk Tow Bars


Between the Balckhawk 2 and the sterling for towing a 4dr Jeep JK, and Possibly a Yukon XL recommendations? Is the Sterling worth $200 more What do you get for that $$?


Expert Reply:

The Blackhawk tow bar part # RM-422 and the Sterling part # RM-576 are both really great options but they have some distinct differences. One being the Blackhawk has a 10k capacity and the Sterling 8k. Both are well above what you'd need so that's not something I'd use to make your decision. The Sterling comes with safety cables which is partially why is costs more, but the really big feature it has over the Blackhawk is the non binding arm mechanism. It has levers that easily pull up to release the tension in the arms so that you can disconnect and connect easier.

The Blackhawk has a similar mechanism but it requires a tool to release the tension so it's not quite as convenient. Based on that and the feedback we've had from customers and installers the Sterling is the way to go.
