Very Light duty!

Later realized my GVWR was 4900#. With 500+# of SmittyBilt bumpers, tire mount and roof rack + gear. I am not comfortable with the 5k rating of the tow bar. Seems to be well built, just VERY light Duty. Not like other SmittyBilt products

I would strongly recommend

I looked at a lot of tow bars and this one was the best I found for my use. I have a Poison Spyder bumper perfect and was easy to set up. Two of my off-road buddies switched over the this tow bar after seeing mine.

Will use on 2 door 2012 Rubicon

Bought this to tow Jeep behind RV. Attaches easily and works fine. Only gripe is that they only provide you with one set of safety chains. Why not add second set? Being a new Jeeper, already improvising. I located a polyurethane bushing to go between tow bar and D ring mounts. Cuts chatter and noise. Also substituted pins with safety clips for bolts at D ring mounting.
