    That thing worked very good, I used it twice...both times dragging K5's home long distance. The first you saw was the '82 blazer I got from Rocko (2500 mile tow), the second was a '74 Blazer I got from Talldogg in San Diego (~1800 mile tow).

    Both trips were uneventful as far as the towing went.

    I sold that Tow bar to Talldogg about a week after I got home from towing his '74 here. If I recall he used it to tow his '75 Blazer from San Diego to the east coast of Mexico for a vacation/wheeling trip. He had no trouble with it either.

    I haven't emailed him for at least 4 years now. :crazy: He kinda dropped off the site when it went 'pay to play'.
