2020 Jeep Rubicon and Rockhard Bumper

We have decided going with the Rockhard aluminum bumper on our 2020 Jeep Rubicon but have a few questions.

1. We be hooking up to our Newmar.DP will I need a raised hitch extender to make the tow bar level?

2. Where did you mount your electric connection and breakaway switch?

3. How did you attach your safety cables?

I run a LoD steel bumper and tow from the D Ring so Iíll tell you what I know. Towing from the DRings means Iím attaching to a higher point than the standard base plate which is below the bumper. 2020 Gladiator Rubicon. Yes I had to raise the tow bar, I use a Gen-Y drop hitch extension that I previously used on a gas coach so I could install a bike rack above the tow bar. It I probably the strongest drop extension on the market. I mounted the wiring hookups behind the skid plate that bolts to the bottom of the bumper. Itís hidden from view but it sometimes requires going to one knee in order to hook up.

2020 Jeep Rubicon and Rockhard Bumper

I bought some heavy cast eye bolts and bolted them to an existing hole in the frame. They stick staight down and are easily accessible for hooking the safety cables.Click image for larger version

We have the rockhard bumper on our wrangler pulling behind a DSDP. Jeep has a 2.5Ē lift and I have to use a 10Ē riser. I mounted the breakaway and lighting connection on top of the bumper. As for safety cables I have d-rings on the attachment points on the bumper and I connect my safety cables to those.
It is a great setup, hope it works well for you as well.
