I have a 79 blazer with a 5.7 350, is that enough to tow 1-2 quads?
unless your trailer is way overkill/overweight, not a problem at all. Just dont' use the bumper hitch.
I have a hitch added on
So towing a full size quad isnt a problem?
Full size quad? You can safely tow up to 6000ish lbs.
I might just load it in the back of my truck, it would be alot easier.
Alright, well towign 1 quad was nothing, I barley noticed a pull or lag or anything.
I tow 6500-7000#s with my k5 all the time
yeah, I pull my buddies cj7 on an 18 foot car hauler all the time and forget it's back there.
Thats with a 71 on 8inches of spring lift and 37's.
I was erroring on the side of conservative.......
But can you safely STOP with 6000 lbs behind you?
Just because a truck is capable of towing a certain weight, it doesn't mean it's legal to do so. If you exceed the GCVW rating of your truck, you're breaking the law.
I only said that because i thought that WAS within the GCVW, correct me if i am wrong. I didn't mean to encourage anything that was illegal or unsafe.
Well I towed a quad no problem, I was just making sure I could.
