Tow bar receiver type or ball type?
I have a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee and need advise about what type tow bar I should use.
I've pretty much made up my mind to get a telescoping, retractible, internal chambered (for wiring), all terrain (unbinds itself for easy hookup), aluminum but don't mind steel, 5000 - 8000 lb. cap. tow bar. What I can't decide is if I should get the ball type that stays with the Jeep, but retracts out of the way while driving it, or the receiver type which stays with the MH and retracts. I think that having the ball type still with me when , lets say , off roading and the Jeep konks out, I can get towed out without calling AAA. They are cheaper too, except the aluminum (which only comes with the receiver type). The brackets on the jeep are hidden either type I use.
