khenderson i remember a thread somewhere a long time ago where someone was flat towing a tj and the c-clip came out, and the axle shaft and tire came out and went across the highway while the tj was dragged for a mile or so on the diff. ugly pics.


not to scare you out of towing it tho!

Triple88a makwa do you have any pics of that 10" box? which way does it fire?

to tow a rwd all time vehicle dont you have to tow it by the rear tires and lock the steering wheel so the front tires will be in contact w/ the road while the rears are lifted?

gmb08 I tow mine behind a motorhome. I bought a no frills tow bar that included brackets to mount to the bumper and use magnetic lights on the back. I ran / zip tied the wires underneath so all I have to do is plug them in when towing. I looked into wiring into the jeep's lights but the parts were going to run @ $75. Adhere some thick tape to the magnets if you don't want to scratch the paint on the tailgate - ask me how I know.

waspison I am getting my rig set up for towing right now. I got a 5000lb tow bar from harbor freight tools on sale for $50! They sell magnetic trailer lights too. I don't know what type of front bumper you are running, but body armor www.bodyarmor4x4.com sells brackets that will adapt your front d-ring shackles to fit most tow bars.

bluvikng It is no problem, with the right tow hitch, and there are various ways to have your tail lights operable. There is the, take it to a U-haul, of simular station to have it installed, or doing it your self with extra bulbs placed in the rear light cluster. I have seen several right-ups, on different forums, for the "do it-yourselfer".

Towing a jeep behind the motor home

Has anybody towed a wrangler behind a motor home?

I want to know what I'm in for. I am looking at a tow bar type.

Thanks,
