Flat Towing Parts Recommendation for a 1999 Suzuki Esteem


I have 1999 Suzuki Esteem Wagon GL, looking to tow it with a blue ox 4322. What are my options for a bumper attachment or a baseplate. Need to install it before July 2nd.


Expert Reply:

For a Blue Ox base plate kit for your 1999 Suzuki Esteem you would want the part # BX3512. This would work well with the Blue Ox Acclaim part # BX4330 with the that you are also considering. This tow bar comes with safety cables.

For lighting you can use the bulb and socket kit, # RM-155, and not have to worry about cutting and splicing into the vehicle wiring.

And finally, most states now require supplemental braking in the vehicle being flat towed. The easiest system to set up and use is the Blue Ox Patriot # BRK2019, that applies the vehicle brakes in proportion to how much the two vehicle is braking. This is the safest way to stop and it reduces wear and tear on both vehicles.

I have included a couple of helpful links to our articles on flat towing for you. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual for more specific information on flat towing your vehicle.
