I had LOD add Blue Ox style tabs to their standard mid-width bumper. Works great with the Aladdin tow bar that stays on the back of my motorhome.

I was this >< close to going with the blue ox setup, very nice! What stopped me was that I didn't want to tow something as tall as my Jeep (4" w/37s) where the tob bar would be angled up vs down or level. I understand that it is bad ju-ju but have no facts to base it on. Perhaps someone can explain. I opted for a trailer to haul the Jeep.

Installed the Blue Ox baseplate (had it installed) with the diode kit, use the Adventa LX tow bar from the MH--works great..did have to put in a 2" drop receiver to make sure the tow bar was level--no issues the couple of times we've used it...
