Blue Ox Tow Bar Adapter for Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with Off-Road Towing Bumper with 1-inch D-Rings


Hello etrailer, My '17 Wrangler Unlimited has the off-road towing-rated bumper. D-rings are 1-inch. What adapter do I use for connecting my Blue Ox tow bar?


Expert Reply:

To connect your Blue Ox tow bar, such as their Alpha # BX7380, to your Wrangler Unlimited's towing bumper's 1-inch D-rings you will want adapter kit # BX88358. This includes the 7/8-inch pins and retaining clips. You can see how this installs in the linked photo.

I have a Blue Ox tow bar w/braking system and a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sahara with a stock bumper. Is a BX1126 baseplate the only option for towing my Jeep? Just wondering if the Jeep bumper tow hooks could possible be used for towing. Thanks,

The Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1126 is your only Blue Ox option that fits with your stock bumper. Those front tow hooks simply aren't designed for flat towing. Just looking at photos I'm not sure how any towing device would stay connected to the hooks when slowing down.
