Hi

Can someone out there with a 100 series with a towbar please give me the distance from the ground to the centre of the bar where the tounge gos in
i know depending on what rear springs you have the distance will be different but just wondering what the height is reason for this thinking of buying one and just wondering if i need the play around with my camper trailer to keep it level

510 mm from the ground to the centre of the tongue receiver tube in my towbar - the vehicle has been lifted about 50mm via an ARB upgrade.

Glenn,

555mm, with 265/75x16 Mickey T MTZ tyres.

Also has heavy duty springs in rear (ATS4x4 suspension) plus the gear in 'My Rig' - it's always loaded.
