Well, I didn't get the HF tow bar, instead I went with Reese tow bar from walmart for $100. So I would assume the quality of both are about the same. I towed my jeep a little over 400 miles and as long as you hook everything up right and use common sense, you should be fine. If your front bumper is in good shape and the bolts that attach it to the frame aren't rusty, I would bolt the tow bar to the bumper. Also, make sure once it's hooked up that the tow bar is level. Of course use safety chains and hook up tow lights. Another thing to look into is your state's laws on towing. Most have a max speed limit of 55 and some require that you have a fire extinguisher and road flares. Before you go, make sure you check over both vehicles (tire pressure, brakes, etc.)and don't be scared, just take it easy and you'll be fine.
