Thank You God For A Trusting Wife

This is the what my wife's New car looks like at this point in the install of the base plate that I took on to save a $.

What kind of car is it? That why I have a aluminum trailer on order. No baseplates, no car lites or brakes to worry about. Can tow any vehicle on a whim. And I can back around the block if I feel like it! that looks like a fun job of sorts. I have a jeep wrangler with a aftermarket bumper and I believe I could hook the tow bars on the tow hook mounts.

My '97 Jeep GC looked like that!
Our '05 Ody was a different story. RoadMaster needed another one to check fit of the brackets so I got mine free and free factory install too.

I did our new 2012 CRV a couple of months ago. I was REALLY nervous tugging on those large EXPENSIVE plastic parts to get the clips to release. It all worked out well though. I didn't take any pictures. I think if I saw it again I would start to shake.

I had a A-frame tow bar that I connected to the D rings brackets of my aftermarket bumper. I now have a Blue Ox MH mounted tow bar and used Blue Ox's brackets for flat bumpers. Either way a good way to go if you have an aftermarket bumper.

All is well on the home front, it is back together. I will say this I WELL NOT TRY IT AGAIN. I made the Ford dealer double check and recheck that it could be towed four down before I bought it.
