5.0 Towbar Review

Product was as exactly as advertised. Went together well. Delivery was as promised.

5.0 100% satisfied

I am 100% satisfied. The item construction is solid and compact. Very glad with my purchase

2.0 Poor fit and only 1 set of chains included

have a smittybilt SRC bumper. Consider: - there is too much play between the d rings and the tow bar attachments. Required specialty washers to fix the play in the system. - The manual recommends bolting with nylon nuts. This is not convenient to hook up. Consider aftermarket cotter pins to secure at own risk. - rear chains are pictured but not included, misleading, another trip to hardware store required.

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:
