Ford Bronco Toad

Thinking seriously about ordering a Wildtrack 4 door, but not finding much useful information on tow bar setups

Anyone with actual experience?

In for information, everything I have read says itís flat towable. I believe Blue Ox has baseplates etc for it. Iím thinking itís probably similar to my 2020 Ranger but am curious also.

There are ongoing discussions on some of the bronco forums about the ability to connect a towbar directly to the factory bronco recovery tabs. The factory tabs are designed for 3/4" shackles. They have a 7/8" bore and are 1" wide. This is the same size as many towbars currently use or can be optioned with. The factory recovery tabs are very robust and are bolted directly to the frame with 4 very large fasteners. Ford has already indicated that the new Bronco with the correct transfer case can be flat towed. It also seems like they may have already provided an attachment point if you select the optional bumper.

Blue ox has a video out on their tow mounts not sure its on the website yet.

I emailed one of the companies that makes a jeep towable bumper they said they are gonna make one as soon as they get the Bronco they ordered.

My Bronco had a build date of late November.

Well itís a long story but yesterday I picked up 21 Bronco Outer Banks Sasquatch. I have NIRVC in AZ researching towing options. From what I have found Blue Ox is the only option at this time. So I will be adding base plate, Airforce one and a new tow bar. Suspect I will also need an upside down drop to get the bar level.

I will post pics and findings as the process goes along.

Congrats! Depending on the rise needed, You may have issues clearing the back of your MH. Measure twice before ordering your hitch extension/ riser. Keep us posted .

I will update on this thread. Ordered the baseplate today, apparently it’s 30 days out, ugg,

Hate to be the test dummy on this one but here we go!

BTW the Bronco is Fantastic! Put 200 freeway miles on it today, cruise set at 80, easy! Tech is good, ride and handling s much improved over Jeep.

AZRVR17, Please keep us updated on your base plate setup? My son has a 2 door Badlands with Sasquatch reserved; hope to have by early second half of '22. We'll be towing it with a DP. It will have a winch and be driven off road so will have the skid plates, etc. Our ideal solution would be to use the recovery tabs on the front bumper for connection points as not to interfere with skid plates or ground clearance. Currently running a Demco. I talked to them several months ago, they said they would have a baseplate, but didn't have one at that time. But that doesn't mean it would work with a winch setup. Thanks.

Happy to update, I am probably another 30 days out from getting base plate from BO.

I am setting up Blue Ox plus Air Force one.

I have the standard bumper. The modular bumper is very different. I believe demco has a mounting set up for the two recovery points you get with the modular bumper that would work with that set up. Check out their website.

Road master is still waiting to get their hands on a Bronco.

Blue Ox is done with design but seems to be having production challenges. Or just doing small batches as orders come in.
