    I live in Texas and am moving to Florida. I don't want to drive my Blazer all the way there. It has a 4" lift and 33" tires. Would a tow bar work or is a trailer needed? Thanx.

    Tow bar would work, but unless your tow rig is substantially bigger, its not recommended.

    You could make the tow bar work just fine, you just have to install a brake buddy, which will activate the brakes on your k5.

    You may acutally net better fuel economy using a trailer however. The skinny narroow high pressure tires wont scrub nearly as much.

    Did you use a tow bar? I found a 6'x12' trailer would that work?
