I have a 3.2D short WB warrior, a 2010 model - recently acquired and the previous owner took the towbar off to put on his new one I think.

I don't intend towing trailers or anything but I feel exposed to the risk of not being able to pull anyone else out of trouble and not be able to be pulled out backwards myself.

I asked the Mitsubishi dealer and found that the original 'bar assembly traction hook' would cost over £600 - I can't find any second hand but perhaps anyone reading this might know of an unwanted one in the back of a garage somewhere?

Alternatively, can anyone recommend a towbar that might suit me - I don't need anything electrical, just a couple of towing eyes.  I don't see anything obviously suitable on any of the usual outlets' websites.

Thanks in advance for any info or advice.

Have a look on here: pfjones.co.uk/tow-bars/tow-bars-for-mitsubishi/mitsubishi-l200-towbars.html

give them a buzz if you're not sure, an hour or two with some decent tools lying underneath thecar and you should be good to go. Smile

So.. I've fitted a towbar - more straightforward than I thought it would be, some brute force needed to get it all tight... next question is, what's the best way to attach a recovery strap (I don't mean anything fancy like a stretchy kinetic one) to the towbar? I have a choice of a standard 50mm ball and a jaw and pin, neither of which seem ideal but perhaps I can use the pin to go through the loop on a strap. Is that a safe thing to do, bearing in mind that the towbar, the neck and jaw and pin are all bolted tightly together with big, new fasteners?


Thanks for any advice, again.
