2.0 Missing chains and stripped bolts

It works well but lacks the chains needed. Had to buy new bolts because some were stripped out.

5.0 Worked well across the US

Flat towed my jku with 37’s approx one month and 7-8k miles. 75-85mph I used brake buddy too and no problems. I used spacers on my rugged ridge front bumper due to some play but it worked well once I made them (basically 1/4” fat washer).

5.0 Bang for buck

Perfect for flat towing the TJ e bought in PA for my daughter. Hitch, chain and mounts worked fantastic. My bonus was the TJ already had a Smittybilt bumper so I it attached perfectly.

5.0 Use with the SxS

Easy assembly , will be primarily used for traveling with the sxs

1.0 If you plan to actually tow your vehicle stay away

This tow bar is only rated to 45 MPH. You can't tow on the freeway with this. If anything happens to your vehicle or any other vehicles Smittybilt will not be responsible. They don't disclose this in the listing but it is in the fine print and on the side of the tow bar.

Question & Answers

Q: Will this work for a Smittybilt SRC Gen2 front bumper? Also, it shows 4 safety chains. Are all four included? Answer this question

A: Not sure on Smittybilt specifically but should work with just about any bumper with DRing brackets. Mine came with 2 safety chains

Answered by JB123 on 04/06/2021

A: It will work with the Gen2 bumper.   It only comes with 2 chains.   Also the labeling is incorrect.   The label on it says to not exceed 45 mph despite marketing material stating 55 mph rating.    I no longer use this tow bar.

Answered by Dave from LA area on 04/05/2021

A: It's a universal tow bar advertised for the Smittybilt bumpers. It uses the D-Ring mounts for the tow bar mounting. But, it also comes with the bolt on bracket kit for using with other rigs. By the looks of the SRC Gen2, it should work just fine. As for the chains, I only got 2 chains with mine. Not 4. But, by the looks of the pic, it SHOULD have come with 4. HTH:
