Problem...
Got a swing'n deal on a nearly new Falcon-2 tow bar, w/ all the goodies in the goodie bag. Went to the Roadmaster web site, and they don't make the brackets any longer, for the CJ series. Wrangler's, yes, but apparently there is a difference between the CJ series, and the Wrangler series. I've also searched here on the forum, as well as a Google search, and come up empty handed.
Anybody out there have a CJ w/ Roadmaster brackets, and a decent digital camera, that could e-mail me some pic's. I can fabricate, and am proficient at welding, so that may be my only resort.

Hi Gary,

Can't help you with the bracket picture as I have a Blue Ox system. However, when I was looking at tow bars I did note that Blue Ox makes some brackets that "crossover" to the other brands. you might try looking for your brackets on the Blue Ox site. I have a Wrangler and I used a "generic" bracket that Blue Ox sells, and save a bunch of money. Not sure what your hookups on your towbar look like, but it's worth a try.

Why not weld the brackets to bumper,then reinforce the bumber to frame.Thats all roadmaster sends you is a couple plates to bolt on and the tow bar part.I was a little irked when I got my 91 wrangler baseplates,for what they charged,was nothing more than a couple angle brackets and 2 6x1"plate steel with 2 holes in it.

This CJ has a cheesy thin stainless front bumper
and no reinforcement behind it. I found a reinforcement (bracket?) on the TrueOx website this afternoon,and ordered it, but not sure that the front bumper may have to go bye-bye. We'll see when it arrives.
