had used a trailer to get our Jeep to Moab, so we didn't get a chance
to use the tow bar. Once we got back home, we assembled the tow
bar and gave it a try. We ordered ours with everything we'd need
to attach to a 2" ball, including the coupler. Assembly was
straight-forward. The coupler bolts on to the towbar and the towbar
attaches to the bumper using the D-ring brackets. At first, it seemed
like the towbar arms were too close together, however, once we got
the giant bolts tightened, they drew the towbar outward to the perfect
width. Again, Bulletproof manufactured to exact dimensions.

towbar worked as expected. Using our safety chains and lights, we
hooked the Cherokee up to our truck and took the Jeep for a ride.
When not in use, the towbar can be disconnected. If you order your
front bumper with a grill guard, you can rotate the towbar up and
bungee cord it in place, however, we wouldn't recommend this for
if it sounds like we're totally happy with our Bulletproof bumpers,
it's because we are. They look exactly how we wanted them to, and
they put up with all the abuse we could throw at them in Moab and
back home on the rock-strewn trails of Alabama and Tennessee. We
have every confidence that our bumpers will keep their form over
the years, but if they don't, Bulletproof's will replace them for
free under warranty - and that's a deal we just couldn't pass up.
