Looking at picking up a fj60 parts truck next week? Anyone want to help me tow it or can lend me a car dolly, tow bar... etc...?

You're welcome to borrow my tow bar; you just have to get it from Dave. It's a little scary to use a tow bar so have fun. What are you towing with?

I was basically going to tow a 60 with a 60.... Is this a bad idea?

Maybe a dumb question, but how does the tow bar attach to the vehicle being towed?

There are two brackets, and for a 40 they're just bolted to the bumper (nice flat surface). Not sure what you'd need to do for a 60.

I really hate to flat tow but I would do that with a 60 (my last choice). I hate towing with a dolly a little less but I would also do that with a 60 (second choice). I much prefer to trailer but I would not try that with a 60 and absolutely not without a tow vehicle with a brake controller and a trailer with brakes on at least on axle (best choice).

Buy BK a couple of beers (after he gets you home) and let him tow with his Tundra (even better choice).

I own a towing company in MD, pm me and let me know the pick up and drop off info. I should be able to make a good deal.

Annapolis to my parents house in Winchester (can't believe they said "sure, you can park it out front!")....

dmttow, you have a PM
BK, its a haul for you and not too sure beers go well with towing... but parts and some brewskis after its off the trailer.!!....
Burl, I image some parts will probably disappear with it parked at my parents house anyway ;) ... What kind of parts you want? We can freak the guy out when you show up with no shirt in Feb! Awesome!
