Where's a good source for used Tow Bars and Base Plates for an 01 Wrangler. Just picked one up over the weekend and now need to get it set up

Thx John

We purchased our Blue Ox Aladdin tow bar used on eBay a few years ago and saved a lot of $$$. It was a very good shape and at the first rally we went to, Blue Ox service techs were there and they went over it, checked everything, no charge. They also check it every year for no charge when we go to the Back Home Rally. If there is any wear at all on any part, they always replace it, again no charge.

As far as the mounting plate, we purchased it new from Blue Ox website.

With Blue Ox's great service, I would purchase any brand, as long as it was Blue Ox. :)

Hello chamberlain
Both GStream40, and earljan34 are correct. I purchased a blue ox base plate from hitchtrader.com and saved half. I just recently purchased for a friend a new blue ox tow bar on eBay from Holiday Kamper, a Freedom roads dealer in Fl. and saved $200.00. My friend has a 2002 jeep wrangler, I purchased on eBay a base plate from south west 4x4 in AZ. for $109.00. This was not built by blue ox, however it is built to work with one.
Also, someone on this forum suggested to me that I sign up with PayPal. I did, and all is well and good.
