2004 4.2 xj8 towbar


Recommended Posts

HI all I've got a 2004 4.2 XJ8 aka x350 and I would like to get a towbar fitted.

afaik that model is homologated for towing and I eventually found a supplier. However the fitter I talked to said that he "wouldn't want to get involved" in this. He said he remembered fitting towbars to these back in the 2004 era and it was awkward back then, when replacement brackets or what-have-you were readily available. The dealership says the parts are no longer available.

fwiw I'm only going to tow a 10-foot boat on its trailer or one of those 1 metre long Erde trailers to take garden rubbish to the tip.

Anyone got a towbar on one of these please and if so how did you go about getting it supplied / fitted?

Thanks, regards, Terry.
