    Default How to DIY tow bar for ranger ?

    I use a 2010 4 doors 4x2 Hi-rider Ranger.
    I want to DIY a tow bar that can pull 3 tons weight.

    I think I will use a trailer hitch and weld a bar for it .But I don't know
    where I have to connect to the chassis and
    how to connect (Bolted or welded )?

    Thank you very much

    Mate, your stark raving mad! Not only are you planing on building something that is at the absolute limit of what the vehicle can tow, it's also probably illegal too.

    My factory towbar has a compliance plate on it that says with a standard hitch I can tow 1,800kgs and with the load distribution hitch I can tow 3,000kgs. I'm sure that the Hayman Reece towbars are configured the same as well.

    Check out eBay and you will regularly see Ranger towbars (complete) for sale. If you really want to tow 3,000kg I would not recommend building your own towbar.
