10A Rubi front tow hitch major problem

Hello,

I've had a front tow hitch installed on my 2 door jk sport for years.

Traded Jeep for a new 10a unlimited. Love the new 10A BUT I cannot install my front hitch since the frame assembly is different for the new bumper.

I was not prepared for this. I thought there was just a different bumper attached to the same framework but it's not, not even close.

I'm getting desperate...... any insight or am I SOL?

Sell the 10A bumper and get a new aftermarket bumper you could prob get between 800-1000 for it they are in high demand.

I'm sure you can fabricate something if you want to keep the front bumper and absolutely need a front tow hitch.

current thinking is bolt a rear hitch to the front frame cross member. I'd have to drill into it though.

Nope that won't work

Absolutely nothing can be done apparently. Went to two off road places and the second is just thinking about it. Maybe "something" can be fabricated to clip onto the tow hooks. But it looks bad...no front receiver hitch can be attached to any limited edition oem bumper apparently

I'm sure maximus-3 can fab something up if there is enough demand for it

Here's an option and I'm pretty sure a couple other companies make them!

Why not buy a new hitch?
