Towbars

This is an expression of interest to all BA XR owners.

im currently working with Haymen Reese and Werribee Towbars to design a working towbar that can be fitted without cutting into the rear bumper and having a square hitch slammed in the middle of your ute.

It will be rated to approx 1,250-1,600kgs. Tounge type that can be fitted and removed when needed via 2 x 24mm bolts under the bumper with easy access.

not sure about the rating as it is getting designed on my ute on thursday at this stage and then sent to Haymen Reese to be tested, but will be enough to tow jet ski's, bike trailers, blah blah.. considering the normal rating for a MANUAL is 1,600kg, this will be fine for tradesman....


at this stage, we would like a few numbers of people who are interested to get a few started for production.

Thanks

Terry

Re: Towbars

it would be a piece of piss to put on and take off. nothing at the back of the ute to wack your legs/knees on.. and 2 bolts to tighten when you put the tounge on.

simple, tidy, no cutting into bumper..
