Fabricators, step inside.... need XRC front towing options

Fabricators,
Here's the project: Take the 2 d-ring tabs on the front of my bumper and come up with brackets/forks to mate to this tow bar: http://www.rdmoffroad.com/tow-bar-fo...wing-kits.aspx

Ready? Go!
Need by Thursday February 4th.

(I've already called Smittybilt and Currie and they both agree this needs to be custom built/fabricated. Neither have an option that is off the shelf.)

You may want to check the legality of attaching to your front bumper and not the front axle in California.

Otherwise, the post above may be right... it may be cheaper, safer, and faster to buy a trailer. How about a simple one that you drive the front wheels onto and hook to your tow vehicle (an RV I presume)?

If you look in your owners manual it tells you to either flat tow or put it on a trailer. I would not ues a "tow Dolly" like the above poster said.

To the OP warror products makes a product that attaches to your D-ring mounts and a tow bar attaches to that. If you search on here their is a few threads on flat towing your jeep. I linked it for ya. Also don't forget about a breaking devise to work the jeeps breaks. All states require breaks on anything being towed over 2,000 lbs. or so.

Jason, send Clackey a pm. He had some tabs welded on his PJ bumper to mount a tow bar. He tows his behind his RV.

FUN LS1 your welcome on the find. I was looking at going that route but I am going to put my JK on a trailer behind this.
