Complete Tow Bar System for 2000 Dodge 3/4 Ton


I need a complete tow bar system to pull a 2000 dodge 3/4 ton 4x4 diesel pickup, unit weight 9000 lbs. What do you have and how much?


Expert Reply:

My recommendation for towing your 2000 Dodge Ram 3/4 ton 4x4 pickup with a diesel would be the Roadmaster Blackhawk 2 All-Terrain Non-Binding Heavy Duty Tow Bar, 10,000 lbs, part # RM-422, and the Roadmaster MX Base Plate Kit, part # 249-6. This tow bar and base plate kit are especially designed to tow vehicles with heavy duty frames and the tow bar installs easily into a 2 inch receiver hitch.

You will need to be careful of the amount of weight you put in the pickup due to the weight of the pickup being 9,000 lbs. and the rating of the tow bar being 10,000 pounds. Too much weight can affect performance and be unsafe. You will also want to check the capacity of the hitch and towing vehicle you will be towing with because typically motorhome hitches are rated for less capacity.

To finish up your tow bar system you will need electrical and safety cables. Roadmaster offers the BlackHawk 2 All Terrain Towing Combo Kit, part # RM-9243-3, which includes all electrical components needed, safety cables and covers for your tow bar and accessories.
