Flat-Towing Components for a 2016 Jeep Wrangler with a Smittybilt Carbine Aftermarket Bumper  


I asked earlier about a tow system for my 2016 wrangler JK, but have since, changed the front bumper to a Smittybilt Carbine, so Id like your opinion on: Roadmaster Falcon 2 with 1 clevis attachments and a invisibrake system.

It looks like the Smittybilt Carbine bumper on your 2016 Jeep Wrangler has D-ring attachments built into them. If you can use these for a tow bar (contact Smittybilt to ensure your model is capable of being flat-towed), then you should be able to connect the Roadmaster D-Ring Adapter, part # RM-035, to connect to a Roadmaster tow bar. I've linked to a video review of this adapter for you to look at.

The Falcon 2 Tow Bar, part # RM-520, is perfectly compatible with this adapter and is a great choice for a tow bar. The video I mentioned above actually uses a Falcon 2 for its tow bar.

The Roadmaster InvisiBrake, part # RM-8700, is another good choice. This braking system is a favorite for Wranglers as you can see in the video installation I've also linked to.

Keep in mind that you will still need the other components for flat towing in your previous question. They were:

Safety Cables - part # RM-643
12V Outlet Kit - part # RM-9332 and
Wiring Kit - # RM-154
