Blue ox tow bar

Could anyone let me know about how much it costs to purchase and install a blue ox tow bar to pull a jeep behind our sunseeker. Thanks so much!

Are you asking about just the tow bar or a base plate as well?

If you are handy with tools, most base plates are not that hard to install.
Checkout "adventureRV.com prices for new items.

I went with "ReadyBrute" tow bar with surge brake.

Thanks for the info. We aren't completely sold on the blue ox. We are just looking for the best option to pull a jeep. Any suggestions are welcome! We are new to all of this.

We pull our Jeep and our Focus with the Falcon tow bar, I installed the plates on both vehicles., Bought the plates from E- Trailer and the bar used for $175.00. It was like new,
Hook up or un hook is about 3-4 minutes.

I have a 2014 Jeep Trail Hawk with a Demco tow system, it sticks out in the front but it's black and so is the grill area. I think its the safest.

Go with the Blue Ox. There are others out there but the Blue Ox is pretty much an industry standard. My opinion. They are tough and require very little maintenance.
