    Is there any way to tow a '89 Blazer with a 4" lift and 35's on a uhaul trailer? Would it work if i put smaller tires on? Im moving to Florida and driving a uhaul so any suggestions would help.

    Mine wouldn't fit with 33" tires. Could have made it fit with regular tires and rims but I ended up buying a trailer. I think the Uhaul people were also worried about the weight of the Blazer.

    how much was your trailer and were they worried about the tires on the trailer cause of the weight of the blazer?

    You would be WAY overloading it. You damage the trailer (or truck) by doing that and you'll be paying $$$$

    It's lawsuits because of stupidity like this that costs me money from my ESOP :mad:

    Plus, the contract will be 100% void if you lie about what you are putting on it.

    By a towbar for $150 and falt-tow it behind the truck.....

    I found a car trailer that had been used once for $1,100. My Blazer exceeded the weight capacity of the Uhaul trailer so I didn't rent one. I haven't had good luck with Uhaul equipment so it didn't break my heart to buy a trailer.

    The uhaul trailers I have used were only rated to hold 3400 lbs. So anything bigger then a car or cute-ute is overweight.
