Towbar Special

Hey, not sure if anyone else needs a towbar for their GC but my local Jeep dealer (Armstrong's in Toowoomba) is running an October only special of $855 fitted.

You have to contact the service department at service@armstrongauto.com.au to get the deal.

Re: Towbar Special

I gather this is for a genuine Mopar one?
If so that is a good price.

Re: Towbar Special

I paid $1200 for my dealer fitted SRT Mopar one, so this is a great deal, if it also includes the SRT model in their deal.

Not sure buddy, but shoot the service guys an email and I'm sure they'll get back to you quickly because they are nice bunch of blokes. Is the SRT a different part number, if it's not then I can't imagine there would be any difference?

I got mine fitted last Monday and can confirm it's all good. Here's a pic, don't worry about the plug being upside down, we did that when the Anderson plug was fitted to make it all fit nice and neatly.

Re: Towbar Special

The towbar is on ebay around $500, which appeals to my wallet, how difficult is the fitting, anyone here done their own?


Cheers, Simon

Got a link Simon? $500 seems like a good price for genuine.

Any splicing required or do they come with a plug-in loom for trailer lights?

Re: Towbar Special

Splicing is required on MY14s. Pretty disappointing given that "plug and play" is available on US deliveries. You can check out my DIY Towbar Wiring thread for the run down.

Re: Towbar Special

Thanks Steve. That is pretty disappointing.

Does the bumper need to be trimmed/cut to fit the genuine towbar?

Thanks
