    Looking for a tow bar that can handle 5,000 or so for my XJ. It's still being towed by a variety of Chevys (I have 3 Chevs now as it is).

    One with sliding sides.

    This is REPRESENTATIVE. I'm not spending that kind of cash (besides, they mark up like 45-50%)

    TIA!

    There was one rated for 5000# for sale on the OBH list not long ago. Definitly post over there... Also do you have a Ranch & Home near you? The one in Redmond, OR sells brand new Reese tow bars with 5000# capacity for about $125.

    Kenny,

    Thanks for the tip. Currie has the same ones (similar) and w/ groupbuy.com's pricing right now, it's cheaper (not including shipping, anyways).

    I'm looking for one where you don't have to line up the truck perfectly to hook it up.

    Sure, I'm stretching! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Thanks!

    I have this one. It is brand new. I bought it and then got a deal on a car trailer so I never used it. $100 shipped.

    ADJUSTABLE BUMPER-MOUNT TOW BAR
    Arms adjust to 42" wide
    U-joints at ends of arms ensure smooth towing, even over rough roads
    Bolts directly to bumper of towed vehicle—needs no base plate. Perfect for towing vehicles with flat or other type of bumper. 5,000-lb. towing capacity. Heavy-duty coupler fits 2" hitch ball (sold separately). Quick-disconnect brackets allow easy installation and removal. Folds for convenient, compact storage. Hardware included.
