I want to attend the snow and pizza run but my FJ40 heater is not very good at keeping the cab livable at highway speeds so i need to rent or borrow some ones tow dollyfor that weekend or should I rent from uhaul? I would rather give the cash to one of you. I live on the north side can any one help me out. :bowdown:

I have a full size trailer, if the people I am storing it at aren't using it you are more than welcome to use it no cash needed.

I am a Southsider :p: as long as you can handle that. Let me know ASAP and I will check with them. :cheers:

I have a tow dolly your welcome to but it will not handle 38's! 35's are really pushing it!

You'll need to be dressed appropriately for the run anyways, so bundle up and drive that thing!

awesome I would love to use it is the problem the straps are not long enough? or it is just sketchy to tow? I have only towed a dolly once before and it was a car then.

Both! I personaly would not tow folly anything with tires larger than 35! You are welcome to enjoy the adventure if you feel so in
clined.

I will be with my brother so if it starts to wiggle I will just man up and drive it and he can drive the tow vehicle

So it sounds like you do want to use it? If so I'll get it back from Jerry at BT as he used it to haul his broken Cruiser last.

awesome yes I will give it a try I also wanted to try it to see if I needed to buy a car hauler or if I could get away with a dolly for a couple years before I could get a flatbed

Ben,
It doesn't look good for you using the dolly. The guy who has borrowed it still had a broke vehicle on it and isn't done with it. If that changes I'll let you know but getting it by the 3rd doesn't look good!

I've rented them from Broomfield Rentals a few times and hauled a 40 with 33s. Their rates were decent. BTW- I think towing using a dolly with 38s is not a good idea.:)

It was 65 degrees up here today. Drive your 40! :thumb:

I will be driving my 40 I might need to thaw out when I get there I might have a open seat if anyone is still looking?
