My Tow Rig since i get laughed at....





So yeah its basically what it looks like a 4cyl Sonoma pulling a samurai

Its been to silver lake 5 times, countless trips jackson to flint.


Gets 17 MPG while towing 24-26 mpg just attempting to move its own weight at a moderate pace.

only when driving them attached or just the samurai, The Sonoma can't draft too much because it shuts off at 93 mph or so.


Oh and there was no need to Draft in my Omni :tonka:

you should lock up the e brake if you have one in the sami and try and do a burnout with the sonoma. i dont know why but i think that would be hilarious.

Its called winter, and there is no tongue weight so i don't need to use the parking brake


yeah this setup works okay under these conditions:

You aren't in a hurry to get up a hill
Its not windy
its not wet or snowy


did i mention because of the power band i have to drive 75-80 because the truck gets very angry with me from 55-70 mph
