Tow bar brackets

I have a Chevy Tahoe that has the baseplate for a Fisher Snowplow already attached. I would like to fabricate brackets that would bolt to the snowplow tabs and then attach the blue ox tow bar to that.

Has anyone ever done anything like this ? I am open for suggestions and or ideas.

Thanks in advance.

If you're a experienced fabricator, this should be an easy job for you. If your not, find one who is.

IMHO.....I would check with your insurance company if you will be covered..... if in the event something goes wrong and you made the attachment yourself. Could be a liability can of worms.


Good luck.......

All of the snowplow mounts I have seen are much too low for a tow bar attachment point.

Yes, but by fabricating an adapter between the snowplow mount and tow bar, you could make sure the tow bar would be at the correct height. And an experienced fabricator/welder can make this adapter just as good as some retail manufacturer could. These guys are good!

I have made several and used for many years with no problems. I tend to over build everything to insure safety. I also hooked safety cables to the vehicle rather than the brackets. If you are a good fabricator and welder, it should not be a problem, if not leave it to a professional.
