I used to have the attach points provided by the base plate. When I moved to an aftermarket bumper with built in tow bar attachment points, I got two "CURT 22411 Bolt-On Black Steel Tow Hook" from Amazon and bolted them to the frame. I then used short cables like the ones linked above to bring the attachment points out to where I could get to them easily.


We've run out in the house, but the RV has two.

I'm prepping to flat-tow my 2015 Wrangler Rubicon JKU. I want to attach my coiled safety cables to the frame rails, but the jeep has an aftermarket front bumper, and no "slot" or other anchor point in the side of frame rails.

I'm looking for suggestions, experience, wisdom with this. Is it possible to add an anchor point somewhere - other than the bumper?

I suppose I could install anchors on the bumper, but that kinda defeats the purpose of the safety cables if its the bumper that fails.

thanks!


Are you insinuating that your aftermarket bumper is weak?
Most every aftermarket bumper I’ve seen is generally strong and un-yielding compared to OE bumpers.
Jeep doesn’t have tow hooks? Seems like a good place to attach them.
