It's pretty dang long and with no engine in it it is dead weight, ramps would be pretty nice

I don't see myself working on it anytime soon and I found someone with a garage near jackson that said I could store it there. All I will have is myself and a come along to move it though, fun fun..

Can you rent car trailers anywhere? I don't have trailer brakes setup in my durango so that doesn't really matter.

nope, you can rent just the trailers. my neighbor moved out and he rented one from the u-haul on 65th and us50 check them out. They do look small, but we put a 65 Plymouth something on it, his car was huge but it fit. I'd say use mine, but it is in Fairfield and my truck is going to the shop.

they have car haulers that should fit it. they are the open center ones not the furniture trailers with the sides. they may question your durango as a tow rig for it tho.

Got one in Dublin but you would spend more in gas coming to get it. As long as you have a 3/4 ton, you can get one from United Rental for about $70 a day.

Does Uhaul still not let folks tow their trailers with Fords? If you do ever rent from uhaul, never pickup anything from an outlet, always get it from a service hub, where the vehicles get checked by somebody who works for them. I have had nothing but bad luck renting U-Haul trailers and whatnot from furniture outlets, and other places that have no buisness carrying them.

what fun is that? He's in sac, I'm in sac just figured if he went somewhere it would be easiest to just go there. I usually go to the place on 65th and I'll swing by there on my way home but if there is another one that is better (maybe the el camino one?) I could go there too. Guess Uhaul is Uhaul, prices should be the same.

dang, $50/day isn't bad - I might just be renting for towing my rig to the trail this summer

more (unneeded in this thread)uhaul advice now that I remebered it. When booking a truck, do it on the internet, and not at joe schmoes. You will be suprised how much you save I saved almost a grand for a move from norcal to maine.

I have one you can use....I need to cut the weeds around it anyway. A 30 pack of BL or a Heineken mini keg would make it happen. PM me if you're interested.

How far you going?

If you have AAA they will tow it for 100 miles (if you have the upgrade).

call on a weeknight, or get ahold of BaconBits, he still works for Auto Guardian. He will tow it for you, AAA "won't" tow a non running car. Some guys are cool, some are dumbasses. But Steve will tow it ANYWHERE in ANY condition. PM me and I'll give you his cell. Make sure to use the wifes card, so you can "save" your tows.
