  1. Tow Dolly and wheelbase

    Ended up just driving up in my friends truck. Easier and still fun.
  2. Tow Dolly and wheelbase

    I have one of those as well! You know the weight when you're trying to stop it with crappy brakes and 14 inch tires.
  3. Tow Dolly and wheelbase

    It's a 3 day weekend in Maine. I'd have to both bribe and pay for a hotel for a few days. I could alternatively pay $100 and use my Toyota for the event but then I'd be fodder for jokes forever. Also, I've never left the event without some pretty good body damage and not sure I want to deal with that on my DD.

    A much higher chance if I actually drive it there!
  5. Tow Dolly and wheelbase

    It's 3 hrs. I did it 2 years ago with heepjeeps trailer I think that trailer weighed 2k + the 3800 truck. I was down to 40mph on some of the hills on 95 in Maine. That trailer didn't have brakes or at least ones that were hooked up.
  6. Tow Dolly and wheelbase

    FJ is 4300, Tow Capacity 4700 I'm about 95% certain the front wheels came off the ground over the 293 bridge on 101. High wind, bouncing over a frost heave. That was a quickie tow about 1 hr with a junk rover. Had to get it out of there and with 4 flats I couldn't really get the weight balanced on the trailer correctly.
  7. I'm thinking about towing my truck (rover, 3500-4000 lb) using a tow dolly and an FJCruiser. Wheelbase on the FJ is 105. Wondering if the FJ short wheelbase will give me any issues. Anyone use a tow dolly with something that short before? I've towed ~7500lbs with the FJ before and frankly that was frightening. Just asking before I search for a rental place for one. Thanks, Mark
  8. Anybody have a set? Thanks, Mark

  10. 8274 Wanted

    If Steve has a shaft for you, it's probably better for Steve to give you the shaft.... j/k I'll PM you.
  11. 8274 Wanted

    The one with no brakes. We already had your 8274 on it before when I pulled down ~12 trees with it...
  12. 8274 Wanted

    Rick I'll take it. Also can discuss the older one when I'm there. I can bring the y pipe from Steve too. Save him the trip. Thanks! Looks like I might even have more trees to move after this storm.
