Tow bar advise

Post by diggerrus » Sun Oct 27, 2013 7:52 am

Hi I want to fit or get fitted a tow bar to my swb would ideally like the old fashioned type but looks like it would be really low under the back bumper? Anyone experienced this or should I get a swan neck one....

mine has the standard flange type, and it does sit low, never had a problem with it and looking at it i could cut the bumper and lift the ball into a recess like a lot of them are on other cars... here's a picture..

Sometimes I drag my balls on the floor but never the tow bar. Image
