        Not quite universal

        The tow bar works great, but would not work with the existing bumper. I honestly am not sure it was the factory bumper, but I think it was. Long story short, ended up purchasing a SB bumper and installed it Alaina with the tow bar. Works great.

        Not For A JK

        When I got the tow bar it came with warnings that do not appear in the website (at least not easily found if it is). It has a weight limit of 5000 lbs. a Jeep JK weighs in at 4800 curb weight! (The JK in the Picture weighs more than that with those after market bumpers and wheels) also says do not tow over 45 MPH, these two things alone should be readily spelled out on your site before recommending it as a fit for a JK

        Perfect hitch for what I needed

        The Smittybilt adjustable tow bar kit worked as I'd hoped with my AEV front bumper on my 2013 JK. Recommended.

      5 Top Rated Questions

      The bumper on our 2017 Jeep Sahara has a plastic outer shell. Do you remove that shell to install the brackets and then cut out the plastic to accommodate the brackets or do you try to drill/cut out the bumper where the bolts are?

      • The Smittybilt Adjustable Tow Bar Kit is a universal kit, and install will vary based on year and model. Trimming of the plastic cover is typically required.

      Will this hook up to Deegan 38 Front Bumper?

      • The Smittybilt Adjustable Tow Bar Kit will not work with the Deegan 38 Front Bumper.

      Does this need a base plate of some sorts? I have a 2014 Rubicon with factory bumper.

      • No base plate is required for install, however keep in mind that this can only be attached to bumpers with d-ring mounts.

      Will this fit the barricade trail force HD bumper?

      • The Smittybilt Adjustable Tow Bar Kit will not fit a Barricade Front Bumper.

      Helpful (2)

      I see in the questions above that this won't work with a Deegan 38 front bumper but I'm curious as to why. Is it the D-Ring spacing or are the d-ring mounts on the bumper just weak?
