    ok well last weekend i put myself in even more debt than i already am and picked up a 79 blazer...all stock...for 600 bucks..(coulded pass it up) and my plan was to use it for a tow rig/ daily driver...my thinkin is that if i keep it stock and get a sway bar hook up for my trailer and weight distribion hitch i should be alright towin my 88 blazer..anyone do this on a regual basis? only want experianced responses /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif i should know better with my scary trip back from AZ towin my 72 but i dont think i had it far enough forward on the trailer /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    my judgement was not the greatest on that decision...had been breakin bolts on my bead locks like crazy..and with 1fnhik5's blazer it was like i giant sail goin down the road..figure i have a 4 inch lift with 37's and his bumper was still neer the top of my cab..but i still pulled him home doin 75-80 most of the way..dumb move on my part since i had been breakin beadlock bolts left and right... /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
    but also i have never towed with a stock blazer...so not sure what the charastics would be..if it would change much at all...i dont know

    How come the more times the story is told, the faster you went? Was the gas clouding your judgement?
