Default Might need to tow a non-running FJ40. Ideas?

I am looking at buying a non-running FJ40 as a project rig. Is a tow dolly from UHaul the best way to tow something like this? Or maybe a tow bar? I don't have access to a flatbed with a winch...

I brought mine home on a dolly. I've got a tow bar on my bumper. A couple of times, we've swapped my bumper to a dead 40 and pulled them home. You are welcome to borrow it to get your 40 home.

Thanks, Ricardo. Let me see verify that my wife doesn't think I'm mental for buying another 40 and I'll get back to you by Monday. This might be a perfect solution.
