Hey all, I am about to make a looong move to Missouri here at the end of the month. Due mostly to money concerns, I am planning to flat tow the K5 behind the u-haul truck. I need some pointers though. Steering column should be unlocked? I have a friend here that said to leave it unlocked but get some rubber straps and strap it straight so that it will turn but will want to come back to straight? Comments? I was planning on dropping both driveshafts so t-case and transmission aren't a concern. I have no plans of going over 50-55 MPH. I am resigned to this length of this trip :-) I understand from searching that this setup might not be legal in a lot of states (over 3000 #) but it's the way I gotta do it. I have towed some crazy **** over short < 1.5 hours before so I understand the easy steering changes, give lots of breaking distance etc. Any other tips/pointers u feel I should hear? I would love to hear em. This part might not be quite right for this forum, but I'm sure someone here has made a similar trip. I want to avoid mountains as much as possible and my geography sucks lol. I live near Sacramento California. One route would be to take 80 east and go through Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, etc. Seems to me that that way isn't great if you are trying to avoid hills. I was wondering if going south more and more along the lines of AZ,NM, TX and OK might be better for keeping things flat? What do you all think/recommend for a route? I know I am a wordy son of a bitch, but this move has me a little loopy so please be patient with me. Thanks all!
