Another idea. If it just has to roll to the dismantler put any 15" wheels on and just pull the rear calipers.

Although I can't say the Cruiser isn't the greatest tow rig, I'm pretty impressed with it. I was able to drive it all the way home towing the trailer despite a leaking tranny cooler. I talked to Frank a bit ago and he said I shouldn't have made it. I 80 looked like a war zone from Rawlins to Laramie yesterday. I saw everything from cars in the median to a burning semi. I'll be taking pics in a bit.
Wow, so insurance has totalled it??? Or what are you doing with it? I'm definitely interested in it if it's still a "driveable in some form" sorta rig...

It's still driveable. I pulled what was left of the front bumper off and bypassed the tranny cooler to solve my leak problem. The steering wheel is 90 degrees off center now, but it still drives straight if I let go of the wheel. PM'd you back on mud as well.

Sorry about that. I emptied it out a bit. It might be a week or so before I can say what they're going to do. They don't want to pay for the trailer. I'll have to wait till the adjuster gets here to plead my case.
