I just bought my Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar package. Came with baseplate with removable tabs, Cover, Safety Cables, Locks, Breakaway Switch, and Bulb and Socket Light Kit. All new for $969.00. Also bought a Brake Buddy Digital Classic.

That is an excellent price. I am planning to purchase the same pkg next year, except for a new Fiat. If you don't mind me asking where did you get such a great deal? Best I have been able to find is over $2300.

We just purchased a new Wrangler JK in July and went through the same evaluation. We wanted both a winch and high ground clearance so chose to go with an aftermarket winch bumper. The tread on our evaluation is below:

Good luck with your Jeep, we absolutely love ours. Here are some pics near Lone Pine, CA.

We use roadmaster 1428 base plate, Demco Adapter to a Ready Brute / Ready Brake tow bar/aux braking setup. I use the Cooltech harness to the stock lights. Simple, clean and reasonably priced. All done for under $1400 and my labor.

I see this went unanswered. I believe that is an AEV bumper.

I use a ready brake on the back of my 5th wheel to pull my 97 TJ. Works great and is simple and cheap. Pulled this setup to Colorado and back, no problems what so ever.

I went through Kansas with the same setup and got a ticket for being over length. Kansas is serious. Even had to unhook the Jeep.
