Anyone ever flat tow a samurai with an XL-7

Just wondering how it would be before I bought a tow bar. If it'll work maybe I'll be at the melt this year.

all you need to do is find a trailer big enough for two zuks and i can pull both our zuks out to the melt...i got a 3/4 ton ext cab long bed 4x4 remember? lol then all you got to do is run chase with the XL-7. ive found my truck gets about 12mpg loaded or unloaded

Hills may be a bit slow, but it is rated for 3000lbs, so it should be pleanty safe to flat tow a Zuk with it.

We towed my Samurai with a GV for around 2500 miles (over the rocky mts) with no problems. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

It'll work fine. The XL7 hasthe biggest rear axle Suzuki ever had, and the tranny is H/D for towing.
