Front Tow Bar Question

I'm in the process of thinkin' up a tow bar for my lifted(SPOA) Zuk. I was wondering if there is a right length to make it?
It will be bolted to the under side of my home fab bumper. I could make brackets to lower it even more(height of shakles) but if it's not needed less work for me....
Will the fact that it will be going downwards to the towing vehicule make a diff?
I don't want to make it to long or too short or too high.
Hoping I can use your expiriences to help(as usual!)

Picture is bumper on "parts truck"!!!

Thx Guys(and gals?)

Re: Front Tow Bar Question

the tow bar should sit level with the groud when attached to the suzuki and the tow vehicle... the easiest way to do this is to have a receiver hitch with a rise for the ball... thats how i do mine... i actually have a tox bar for sale if you would be intersted to that.... attached is a picture, email me for more details

Re: Front Tow Bar Question

Yes this thing is working. I think you should buy my Calmini tow bar. Used only once to tow from AZ to CA. $100, you pay shipping.

Re: Front Tow Bar Question

go to walmart, or the local trailer shop and buy a generic tox bar... then with this you should easily see where you need to put the brackets...
it really isnt that difficult
