Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2017 Jeep Wrangler with Aftermarket Bumper with 3/4" Shackles  


What product would you recommend for flat towing a 2017 jeep wrangler. Jeep is currently sitting on 35 tires with a four Inch lift. Front bumper is a Dx8 with 3/4 Inch shackle holes.


Expert Reply:

I tried finding information for your Dx8 bumper on your 2017 Jeep Wrangler, but was unable to locate much. You will want to ensure that the bumper is rated for flat tow use.

As long as your bumper is rated for flat tow use, we do have an option for your 3/4" shackle holes.

- Adapter for Jeep D-Ring Bumper Mounts to Roadmaster Motor Home Mount Tow Bars # RM-035

This will allow you to use the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar # RM-676, which also includes the needed safety cables.

You will also need tow bar wiring and a supplemental braking system.

- Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit # RM-154

- Blue Ox Patriot Radio Frequency, Portable Braking System # BLU37TR (12 Volt Outlet Kit # RM-9332 is needed for proper installation)

Given your tire size and lift, you will almost certainly need a high-low adapter to keep your flat-tow set-up within 3" of level. I have included a help article that goes over this and a link to our high-low adapters, so you can choose the correct option you will need for your set-up.
