    that sucks. On an offtopic, since we have so many tow truck drivers here, is the tow trucks insurance responsible for the towed vehicle, or is that the person being towed's responsibility. Also, what if your vehicle was stolen off a wrecker, or the wrecker was stolen w/ your vehicle on it. (yeh way out there, but just curious how that crap works)

    My K-10 left me setting once when I couldn't figure why it wasn't getting a spark. It was the small wire under the advance plate. Anyway, I was towing my bass boat and he wanted to tow the truck with the boat still hooked up. No way, I went back and got it later. He still had me gritting my teeth he was driving so fast and taking corners like he didn't have a load. Hopefully never again. Used the tow bar three times over the last few years. Twice to get my wife's K-10 home!

    I don't think so. First off I would never drive a POS like that. That truck would not meet My requirements. It's to small and only has a single winch line.
    I really don't see how the two vehicles came apart unless safty chains were not used. As far as the insurence question goes it would be coverd. I cost Us over $18,000 a year for insurance.

    So what would be the problem with towing Your truck with a bass boat behind it. I tow 3/4 and 1 ton trucks with 5th wheels behind them all the time. Its not a big deal. As far as a tow bar goes, I wouldn't trust one of those things on a Radio Flyer.

    It was a converted 1 ton Ford smaller than the one in the picture. He lived just down the road from me. Scary, just riding with him pulling my truck!:crazy:
