Towbar/Bumper Mount

Um.....I made the plates the same depth as the original bumper mounting brackets.  The plates slide into the rear chassis rail and pick up on the original mounting holes.  The Trakka rear bumper on mine has the same bumper mounting holes as the original mounts, so all of the hole positioning is the same as the standard mounting.  No cut-out is needed.

There also needs to be a bit of a cut out on the botton edge.

Get one of our Euro friends to send a picture and measurements.

Yes, but if you use the third hole, there needs to be a cutout between the third hole and where the original bumper ends. (This is very hard to explain clearly!)
Ah, I see.  I will have a look in daylight tomorrow.

Here is a genuine towbar.

Phill,
 
Thanks for that.  I can see the restriction.
