I need as many pics and ideas as i can get, im going to have to make one soon.
Ask or send tRustyk5 for pics of his tow bar he made a few years ago. He sold it but still, its one of the beefiest I've ever seen. I've got pictures of it, but no scanner. I'm planning to make one real soon though.
Harley (hossbaby50) and I made one for his k5 before he moved to CO. He migh be able to get some pics up.
alright cool thanks
Sounds like you've got the only pic's of my tow bar now Wes...unless Talldogg posts up and that is pretty damn unlikely.
i understand it is a basic a frame, but the problem that i will have is towing it with a u haul, the truck is high and the uhaul is really low, so this presents a problem of keeping the tow bar level
you have a pm (I don't feel like typing it twice )
yes evan attaching it to the spring hangers would be pretty high, a u-haul hitch on on of thier trucks is only a about a foot off the ground
Well, you could make the tow bar frame drop down from the spring hangers...
The center of the spring hanger bolts on my truck is 26", and my truck has 4" of lift and 39.5's.
well when i tow it i will have 6" and 35" tires
H2 crome(bling bling) takeoffs i got for $475 whoo hoo
I guess ill just have to look at it
When I towed mine it was higher and I didn't have a problem and I will see if I have a pic.
How it attaches to the frame
I put a large grade 8 bolt through the tow bar then double nutted the frame and it worked fine. Built the thing out of stuff I had laying around the yard. The second one that I built the triangle was a little bigger the feet were shorter then then this one is, by feet I mean the part that bolts to the frame.
how do they tow with a tow bar?
i am not going to be able to see the truck at all behind the uhaul
ill be getting a 24 footer because i have to pt the mini in the back
Put some stock junkyard skinnies on the front, and use a tow dolly. If it still has the 6 bolt wheels, find some steel 6 hole Toyo or Nissan wheels and tires to slap on the front, that should get it narrow enough to fit on a U Haul car dolly.
well i already bought tires to flat tow it, i figures this would be cheaper than getting a tow dolly
i might still fit with the H2 wheels 5" back spacing
I wanna see pics of that.
what the mini in the back?
Ill post one when i get home, i have a pic from the last time i did it
yeah that will be pretty funny to see. What ramps do you use to get it back there?
2 lengths of 2x8 wood
i am thinking a good set of ATV ramps would work better
