    Towing from rear

    I have a heavy duty tow dolly, is there any reason that I can’t back my blazer on it and tow the vehicle with the front wheels on ground. I’m lazy and don’t want to disconnect the rear drive shaft.

    Tow BAR M1009

    Happy 4th of July weekend. Does anyone have a make and model number of a tow bar that would hook directly to the lift points (minus the d rings) on a M1009, if one even exists. The military one is to big , heavy and expensive. Thanks Chuck

    Got it working thanks. Can you think of any reason I cant get the alt to charge? I've pulled it 3 times and it bench tests fine. The batteries are new. I am not getting any voltage to the batteries. The gen light in truck is not lighting so I assume its sensing a good alt. Any ideas
