How to Install the Adapter Lug for Off-Road Vehicle Bumpers on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler


Speaker 1: Today on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, we're gonna be taking a look at and showing you how to install the adapter lug for off-road vehicle bumpers to Blue Ox Tow Bar, for 7/8ths inch pin, part number BX88296.This adapter plug allows you to flat tow your Jeep if you have an after market off-road bumper. This will work with Alpha, Aventa, and Aladdin tow bars for Blue Ox. The connection point on those two bars have a different end for attaching to a base plate. This plug has a wider mounting point of one inch between tabs and 7/8ths diameter lug pins.As you can see here on our two bar, this adapter here is not going to fit on the after market bumper that our Jeep has on it. We have a replacement that we're going to put on, so it'll fit his application on the front of his vehicle.First we're going to remove these, we're going to use two 19 millimeter wrenches. Now what we're going to do is on your brackets, you have a sticker on the side that says face up.

You see this angle What you want to do is you want to make sure that this is facing towards the outside of the vehicle, when you put your brackets on. So this for instance would be your passenger side, arrow facing up. You're going to have two plastic washers. Now because this is new I'm just going to go ahead and use the same bolt, the kit that comes with this comes with the same bolt and nut and plastic washers. I'm just going to use the existing ones that are here.

Now you want to make sure that when you fold this down, you can see here it says up, this adapter, this angle, faces the outside of the vehicle, points to the middle.So you want to make sure your bolt is going down towards the ground and your nut is on the bottom. You want to make sure these aren't so tight that they're not going to move, but tight enough where they're not just going to flop around. Now we're going to install this the same way we did the other one. You're going to make sure your bolt is facing down toward the ground and nut's on the bottom.So now what we're going to do, you're going to take your large pin, we're going to line up our holes, make sure that's facing up. Flat side of your pin towards the back, fold it forward.

Then we can do the same thing on the other side, and we will be ready to hit the road.And that'll do it for the adapter lug for off-road vehicle bumpers to Blue Ox Tow Bar, for 7/8ths inch pin, part number BX88296 on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler.
