Flat tow set up for stock bumper
 
I have a 1998 Sport with a stock front bumper. I need to find a way to tow the Jeep behind my F-150 so my kids and I can have some fun further away from our house. Any suggestions for a reasonably priced tow bar and base plate set up? I've seen base plates as high as $600. That seems ridiculous.

Here's what I did: TJ Flat Tow System

Excellent! Thanks. Looks like I'll be swinging by my local U-Haul service center soon.

Harbor Frieght
 
$60

the two rubber bumpers on your front bumper come off and the brackets fit the hole pattern. Just be sure that your tow vehicle has good brakes.

Did the exact same setup, minus the electrical, i did the magnetic taillights.

I've got the same brackets and I picked up a used Road Master Falcon 5250 towbar on Craigslist. The nicer towbar just makes hooking up a disconnecting a little easier. I used the cheap magnetic lights from harbor freight. Towed about 100 miles with my rv and it towed great. Didn't really even know it was back there. Good luck.
