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.Helpful (1)

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 JKHelpful (6)

Not what it says
Ad said no drilling or welding needed just bolt it on takes 1 hour not true had to remove bumper and drill holes for bracket took much more than 1 hourHelpful (9)
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.
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?
Most of the bumpers we sell are indeed not tow rated.
This tow bar will be adjustable and will work with many bumpers.
Please contact us directly with your year and model Wrangler and we would be happy to answer this question for you! Our contact information can be found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/contact.html.
We do not have exact widths, but it will go between 24" and 34". It will work with Smittybilt Bumpers only.
We have not tested the Smittybilt Adjustable Tow Bar Kit with the DV8 FS11 bumper.
This product will attach directly to the XRC bumpers and no adaptors are needed.
The diameter of the connecting brackets are standard holes for 1/2" pins.
At this time, Extreme Terrain cannot confirm the compatibility with this and a Badlands front bumper.
