Adapter to Mount to Jeep Wrangler Bumper For Flat Towing


What bumper can i use on a 2008 wrangler x as a tow instead of a base plate?


Expert Reply:

We don't offer any bumpers for your Jeep so I can't offer any specific parts in that regard, but what I can tell you is that any bumper you find for your Jeep Wrangler will need to have a couple of things. First is that it needs to be rated for flat towing (also called dinghy towing); the other thing it will need are either 3/4 inch thick or 1 inch thick shackle mounts with 7/8 inch or 1 inch diameter mounting holes. You would remove the D-rings from the shackle mounts and install adapters that fit right to the mounts:

- 3/4" Thick Shackle Mounts: Adapter for Jeep D-Ring Bumper Mounts # RM-035

- 1" Thick Shackle Mounts: Adapter for Jeep D-Ring Bumper Mounts # RM-035-1

These will allow you to forgo any type of base plate for your Jeep, and let you tow with a Roadmaster tow bar such as the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar # RM-520 or Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar # RM-522.

I have added a link below to a video review for you to check out of the adapters so you can see exactly how they'd work on your Jeep's bumper.
