    Does anyone know the curb weight of an FJ55 (unloaded and no passengers)? Has anyone tried towing an FJ55 with a FJ/BJ60? Did you use a tow dolly or trailer or just flat towed?
    I need to decide how to bring an FJ55 home.

    76FJ55,
    We're way ahead of you. Flat towed from ND to BC, about 1500 miles (with mountains in the way)!! Also have a '76 FJ55 so we may be asking you questions during the restoration.
