First post here but thought this might be helpful to someone out there. In a few weeks my wife and I are taking our kids (2&4 years old) on a month long RV trip. We are renting the motor home but wanted to bring our jeep along with us to add to the adventure. Finding a safe solution to tow the jeep that allowed for an aftermarket bumper was a challenge. I did not want to add a blue ox base plate because it would limit my aftermarket bumper options in the future (Originally I had been waiting for the AEV JL bumpers to be released but who knows when that will be at this point). When I stumbled across the LoD bumper with frame tie ins and blue ox adapters I knew this was the answer. Had a shop install the bumper/winch, along with an invisibrake control system for towing the jeep. Everything came together really well and I cant wait to hit the road. I am so happy with the LoD bumper I plan to add the rear bumper to match when I get back from the trip. Hoping to go with a 2" AEV spacer lift and 35s eventually. Does anyone have any experience towing a jeep that has been lifted?

How will you hook up the brake monitor in the RV? My Invisibrake is a few years old now, and the monitor (LED and Beeper) is hard wired in the RV dashboard, however, I did see something recently than leads me to believe there is a wireless monitor available now. Is that what you have?

Because I am renting the RV I’m not going to use the monitor light. Everything else will work as it should, I saved the light & wires to use if we end up buying an RV after this trip. I figured I should be able to get through the trip without the monitor light.

Thanks for posting these pictures of your set up. I have a bright white JLUR on order and should be picking it up in the next couple weeks. I am planning to flat to it behind my truck camper. Just received my LoD Signature full width bumper and rock sliders which are sitting in my garage now. I too went with LoD because of the frame tie in brackets. It looks like the winch and bumper caused to front end to sag a bit, any chance you measured the height before and after the install? I'm thinking of a Teraflex 1.5 spacer lift to level things out. The AEV kit looks nice too. I would be interested to see some pictures of your rig once you install the spacers. Looks great!

I didn’t get a chance to measure it but I don’t think it dropped it more than 1/2”. Great choice in Jeep! What top did you order? I got the sky one touch and it has been super convenient for the way I use it. (2 young kids and limited garage space to store a hardtop)

I'm glad to hear the bumper and winch didn't drop your front end too much. We just went with the black three piece hard top. I bet your kids love riding in your jeep with the sky one touch!
