Flat Towing Recommendations For A 2008 Chevy Silverado 3500


What baseplate kit to mount to 2008 Silverado 3500 to attach to a bx4322?


Expert Reply:

The BX4322 Rangefinder II Tow Bar is only rated to tow 5,000lbs so you won't be able to tow your 2008 Chevy Silverado 3500 using it.

Instead I recommend the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar w/ LED Lights - RV Mount - 8K Item # RM-676 instead so you can also have your truck loaded up while towing. This tow bar is non-binding so you'll have a whole lot easier of a time trying to attach and remove the arms to/from the base plates when on uneven surfaces and this tow bar comes with safety chains so you wont have to purchase any separately.

For base plates I recommend the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms Item # 3148-3.

You'll also need tow bar wiring and a braking system, for which I recommend the following:

Tow Bar Wiring: Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit Item # RM-154. This is a one time setup that will use your vehicle's tail lights instead of having to run magnetic lights to the back of your truck.

Braking System: Brake Buddy Select 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System - Proportional Item # HM39524. This braking system is one you'll have to set up each time but takes only a few minutes to set once the initial wiring is done and also comes with a battery charger to keep your vehicle's battery charged while towing.
