    1500 express Remove front bumper/bolt tow bar to frame

    Chevy 1500 express Remove front bumper/bolt tow bar to frame

    I like this Blue Ox Aventa LX 10,000 lb Tow Bar - By Blue Ox | Hitchsource.com Iíve sean midsized cars towing vehicals w/ a adjustable (width) tow bar bolted directly
    To towed vehicles frame what is this tow bar referred to and can I rent one from U haul?

    I have a 02 Chevy 1500 5.7 vortec itís weight 7100LBs and want/like to tow a 03 Chevy 1500 itís weight 8500LBs from Virgina to N.Florida. around 800 miles. Yes I know the 03 is exceeding the 02s tow capisty by 2.1K LBs.

    What I do know so far about towing a 1500.
    1.itís wheelbase width is like just under 79Ē so a conventionale Uhaull tow dolly is to small (could fit w/small dounut spare wheel). However I have read about wider jumbo tow dollys unknown where to rent.

    2.a flatbed trailer would probablley increase the overall tow load by another 3K LBs. now far exceeding the tow capcity of the 02.

    I could arrange transport but the pickup place has deadlines for pickups an seam strike.

    any suggestions on a reliable insured flatbed auto transporter
    thanks

    Never utilized a hauling service for any of our vehicles. How about a larger U-haul truck with a tow dolly?
