    Does anybody know if it will fit? I only need it for a 3hr drive. What else can I do? Tow bar?

    It should fit, as long as you have 31" or smaller tires up front. But, U-Haul will ask what kind of vehicle you're towing. They're picky about what they'll let you tow. Tell them it's for an S-10. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    It might with stock wheels and tires, but mine didn't fit with 10" wide wheels and 32's.

    this has been talked about a few times, I almoast did this last time I needed to move the 4 door crew cab with a Bronco /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    I knew it wasn't the right thing to do and if I had a accident I would be screwed, I ended up going to a eqipment rental place down the road, turns out they had a wider one, with the correct load rating and it was 15 bucks less than U-haul.

    No need to take a foolish chance, just what if some one hit you, not even your fault but it could come back on ya, just call around. Also if you call around or just stop and talk to a tow truck driver, most of them will move things for cash and cheap/forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    Thanks guys. There is another couple places I need to call and see if they have bigger ones, but I just wanted to know about the Uhaul one so I have a backup plan.

    Yes. I've done it before with my first gen. Even with 15.50" wide tires.

    I fit mine on a Ryder Full trailer, however it was lopsided and I did have to throw a set of junkyard wheels and tires to get it to fit on that. I traveled from CA to NC with it lopsided, should have seen the looks I got...... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
