How are you guys hooking the towbar to your jeeps to flat tow ?
As All Terrain TJ mentioned, I do use the Blue Ox Brackets without any issues. The measurement on the tabs of the original blue ox base plate that I use to have was 24" center to center. When I went to the brackets, I had to reduce that measurement by about an inch because of the shackle mounts welded to the bumper, but it still tows fine.
The tow bar just pins to the brackets.
