Hi all, been hanging around for awhile, great site, my first post ! I really need some Ideas for a different way to tow my ,new to me, 73 baja, the regular tow bar that I have is a real pain to put on, and it hits my front bumper on the tow bar crossbar,and won't raise all the way. there just has to be a better way. Thinking about getting the two bar bumper, which is wider than the one I now have, and get an adjustable tow bar and tow off the bumper !! What about that ?? any other Ideas would be greatly appreaciated.no trailer,I don't have room for it.Thanks, Cowboy

you can extend the tow bar by cutting and welding longer tubes in. an adjustable? hmm like anything that can be made longer or shorter its not very strong. and the bumper idea it would work but i like my baja to be secured and a chinese made front bumper is not the best of quality if you know what i mean. i pull my front bumper off to put my tow bar on, just becuase i like it to be secured to the beam. sometimes the extra work is worth it, to make sure your goods are secured. thats my two cents i hope it gives or points you in the right direction. oh and congrats on the bug there a blast.

first off let me say welcome. im new to bajas also but you will learn real fast. the guys here are great. as far as your tow bar goes your kinda stuck. you can redo it like the guy above said but if your going to do that i would just make a whole new one with the part that connects to the beam...or lift your bug!!!

Thanks all for the info !! I guess I will just cut the crossbar off the tow bar, as my front bumper is welded on,so can't remove it. Oh well such is life !! thanks again, Cowboy

I don't think I'd cut off the crossbar. It could really weaken it and might fail when subjected to lateral forces going around corners and whatnot. Maybe you could move the crossbar farther back towards the beam or fab a U-shaped one on that would clear your bumper?

Kyle

Thanks Kyle, I was worried about that too, so am going to move the bar closer to the hitch,toward the Baja would still hit my bumper, I think, will have to check later !! thanks for the concern ! Cowboy

You need the cross bar or your tow bar will fold when you turn...
