    My dad is going to be building a weekend warrior type jeep soon. Small block, dana 44s, 37ish tires would probably be a good estimate of how it will end up.

    He wants another blazer to tow it with. With 3/4 ton axles, sm465 and the proper hitch and trailer, is this within the safe limits of a k5?

    I know a k5s main issue is its short wheelbase, which is ironically why he wants it since it will then fit in his garage.

    All input appreciated. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    should do just fine. as long as the trailer brakes are good and he gets the tongue weight right, it shouldnt have to much of a problem. A good weight dist. hitch setup would help out alot.
