    Default Tow bar accesories

    Anyone who have an idea where one can buy the square tow bar insertion - square piece with drop plate only. In my one horse town everyone wants to sell me a complete tow bar. I dont seem to able to come right with google either.

    Thanks

    I have one here in Pinetown.
    Highly unlikely to use it again.
    If interested make an offer. (PM) and I can send a pic. (Six hole drop plate)
    It was last used many years back on my FORD Ranchero at the time.
    Not sure about transport costs though due to weight.

    Remember to use sabs towbars only.

    We all use the adapters, but modifying a towbar with an adapter can lead to refusal of a claim with insurance. This was told to me by an insurance company.

    Adapter plates are not. auto and general warned me and told me to remove the adapter plates.

    It's a tow-bar modify

    So what is the solution ?
    LOWER the suspension ?
    Or just don't tow anything, or tow with an unstable rig ?

    Fair enough, but the OP was requesting where to find the drawbar as per the picture. If he found one at Autobar, they manufacture SABS approved towbars.

    I was not referring to additional adapter plates.
