Flat Towing a 2013 Wrangler Using D-Rings


Can I use the D ring Plates on the RedRock 4x4 Attack Stubby Winch Front Bumper ? that I have not purchased yet, I am looking for alternatives to base plates


Expert Reply:

Per the manufacturer the RedRock 4x4 Attack Stubby Winch Front Bumper is not tow rated. You can not flat tow your Jeep using this bumper and D-rings.

If you decide on a bumper for your 2013 Jeep Wrangler that is tow rated, I recommend the following. If you are looking for a tow bar that has a coupler, the Blue Ox Acclaim Non-Binding Tow Bar, # BX4330 with a 2" ball coupler is my suggestion. You can use the Blue Ox Aftermarket Off-Road Bumper Adapter, # BX88357 for a 7/8" Pin or, # BX88358 for a 1" pin D-ring.

For a hitch mounted tow bar, and my preferred set-up, I suggest the 6K rated Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar, # RM-520. Use the Adapter for Jeep D-Ring Bumper Mounts to Roadmaster Motor Home Mount Tow Bars, # RM-035-1 for 1" Thick D-Rings. Or, # RM-035 for 3/4" D-Rings.
