The photo is my Heritage Land Cruiser towing my…….Heritage Land Cruiser, getting started for 2021 Cruiserfest in SLC.

However, problems right out of the gate, the U-Haul (U-Hurl) had a ‘screw’ in the tire. Called the U-Hurl hot line and Les Schawb to the rescue. So much for an early start. LOL

As frustrating as that is, it is much better to catch that sort of thing in your driveway rather than a flat on the side of the road, or worse yet a blowout. Please let me know how the hauler works out for you. We will be towing ours for about a 4 hour drive soon. Planning on using our F250.
Thanks.

I've pulledmy 40 with my relatives v8 fj60. Still want to try it with my v8 fj80. Does the 200 come wired for trailer brakes?

I’ll be there too. Any issues down this way I am happy to help where I can (not that the 200 is likely to break down, but that offer applies to anyone else out there)

The new museum is really nice. I’ve been watching the progress over the past few weeks since my train home from work goes right by it.

Well we made it, 12 hours in the saddle from Kennewick, Wa to SLC. The 200 dose fine, squats a bit in the back but no worse than any other 1/2 ton PU. The 5.7 twin cam Toyota motor is a bit particular and really doesn’t come into its own until your at 3500 rpm. So you keep the trans in manual mode and just down shift for the hills to keep the revs in that 3000 to 3600 sweet spot.

The 200 is prewired, just need the round to flat adaptor plug. As far as the U-Hurl, other than the flat before we started, no other issues, tows straight. @Green Bean, your F250 should be fine, I figure trailer and FJ40 weigh in at about 4500 to 5000 lbs, the U-Hurl trailers are steel and quite heavy. Also keep on mind that the front tire straps are only supposed to be good for up to 30 inch tires, I have 31’s on my FJ40, if you’re running 33’s they probably will be to short.

@John in Utah, look me up Saturday, I’ll have the 68 in the show and shine….pictures tomorrow of the unloading ceremonies. LOL

A day late, and a dollar short!

Just got back from “World of Speed” at Bonneville, and found out about this event too late.

Plus my Cruiser is back In Tucson!
