Could I fit my own tow bar?
This depends entirely on your experience and technical ability. Check the tow bar listing to see if bumper removal, drilling, and/or bumper cuts are needed. We can email you a copy of the instructions to have a look at if you contact us.

How long will it take to fit my tow bar?
The time it takes to fit a tow bar varies depending on many different factors such as your vehicle, the type of towbar to be fitted and which type of electrics you are having fitted.

Do fitting instructions come with your tow bars?
