Towing around "here" is a little different than places not flat. I towed with a 1/2 ton chebby silverado that had a long WB which was great, but was also 2WD and sucked gas.

It was used, and pushed, and needed work and money after some tows to E PA couple times. I have since traded it in for a newer vehicle and have no regrets. My "tow rig" only needs to tow a few times a year, so momma gets a better ride for work.

If you want to get a couple years out of it expect to maintain it and cost associated with towing, otherwise I suggest a 4wd only cause I got stuck in the parking lot at Paragon, and good brakes all around.
I'm compensating for my manhood.
