Does anyone produce a substantial 4 bolt plate tow bar to fil a 2004 short wheelbase LC3. I bought the car a few months back but the swan-neck tow ball is about 4"  too low for my 2 Ifor Williams  twin axle trailers. I fitted a Dixon -Bate adjustable height adaptor to my old ISUZU trooper which was ideal.  this has a4 bolt fixing to the tow bar plate.

I have searched on-line, and on here, for a suitable tow bar without result.

I need to tow 2.5 to 3 tonnes from time to time so need something substantial.

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Hi Dafydd
Not too sure exactly what you want, but is this the sort of thing you mean?
https://www.4x4overlander.com/product/nakatanenga-swan-neck-tow-ball/

I don't like Swann neck balls, but what I did on my bracfket I bought a multi hight bracket like this:
https://www.towsure.com/adjustable-height-tow-coupling
and on the detathable part I put a Ball amd conbined pin hitch, as I used to have a "eye" on my trailer so came in handy

If these are not what you was after take a picture so we can see what you want

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your response, but what I need is to get rid of the swan-neck  and replace it with a plate-terminated tow bar, so that I can bolt the Dixon-Bate adjustable height fitting to it and so gain height of the tow ball.

Picture posting on here seems a complicated process from all accounts, and I dont know where to find instructions.
