    Better be heavy! I'm guessing 1 ton with gooseneck.....diesel prefered.....but a 3/4 with bumper pull might work too.

    Tow my Sub with my Sub. The trail rig is an 86 with 35's and the tow rig is an 89 3/4 ton with 33's. If I continue to use the 89 as a tow rig... I am seriously considering converting to dually and adding airbags and such things to make it a better tow rig.

    I towed my burban with a chevy single cab 3/4ton 2wd, and with a crewcab 1ton 4wd SRW.
    Obviously the longer crew cab towed nicer but the 3/4 ton did fine, I don't have the crewcab anymore so all my towing now is with the 3/4 ton reg cab.
    :D

    Mine will be towed once I can get a trailer. The second truck in my sig is the tow vehicle(wife's truck actually) until it is paid off and I get a 1-ton with a diesel(hers is an extended cad standard bed with a 6.0 with an NV4500.)
