Holmes Detachable Towing Unit D.T.U. G2

The Holmes D.T.U. (Detachable Towing Unit) has been re-designed to decrease rear overhang, increase front axle weight, and offer better tow-ability. With repositioned lift cylinders, the D.T.U. G2 also provides superior under-lift height and further improved center of gravity and weight transfer.

The unit comes standard with a 20,000 lb. planetary winch, 175’ of 9/16” IWRC wire rope and front legs that allow the unit to be easily removed in a matter of minutes so your truck can be multi-functional for both towing and pulling trailers. The D.T.U. G2 is designed to secure to your truck using a front lock-down bracket and your Fifth Wheel Plate. The power for the unit is provided by an optional wet line kit, with quick connect couplers, which is installed on your truck.
