Pender, Neb.-based Blue Ox has developed a variety of double lugs that replace the standard triple lug on new or existing tow bars, allowing the tow bar to be connected to most aftermarket bumpers without any modifications.
According to a press release, these aftermarket bumpers cause problems for vehicle owners who want to dinghy tow their vehicles. “The baseplates that Blue Ox and other companies manufacture will not work on vehicles that have these aftermarket bumpers,” the release stated.
In other cases, where the connection points are not available as part of the aftermarket bumper, the purchase of a customer-designed Blue Ox baseplate that bolts to the vehicle frame will be needed to tow. Installation is usually less than 1 1/2 hours (depending on model) and requires standard tools.
Blue Ox’s towing equipment is constructed of durable steel and Finite Element Analysis tested. For more information visit http://blueox.com/p-1570-off-road-adapters.aspx.
