Flat Towing a Sidekick

Hi,
I recently bought a parts Sidekick off of Ebay-the problem is that it's apporx 225 miles away. I'd like to flat tow it home since it appears to be in reasonable shape and I can save a lot of time and money (gas $$$) if I flat tow it instead of trailering it.

The question I have is-does the sidekick/tracker have good tow bar mounts in the front end area? Of course, the front bumper would be completley removed for this operation.

I do have an adjustable tow bar with vertical mounts. I usually use this with my Samurai in conjunction with the front sway bar mounts. Does the Sidekick have something similar I could bolt up to?

Re: Flat Towing a Sidekick

what do you mean by vertical mounts?

if it's a vertical plate, you may be able to bolt it right to the bumper mounts.. I'd pull the rear driveshaft too.

Re: Flat Towing a Sidekick

Actually, the holes for the tow bar run horizontally. I guess the best way to describe it is with a picture. It will bolt to this shrockworks bumper's tow mounts (see attached pic) with no problems.

Does the sidekick have a similar style hole or stud (like the Samurai) that I can bolt my tow bar to?
