Members, As our Off Road rigs continue to grow in size and complexity, and our trips to exotic locales (like SMOOR) continue to get longer, we thought it prudent to start helping our members learn about another aspect of off-roading, towing! 

Please take a tour of topics and post up with what you know or what you'd like to know.  Post up your rigs, trailers, modifications, and trip info.  We'll also post up Towing Rules and Regulations for the U.S., which change significantly from state to state.  Enjoy the new subject matter.

I'll start!

My tow rig is a 2008 Chevrolet Duramax Diesel Crew Cab Dually LTZ.   I bought it in March of this year from a gentleman in Dallas.   He drove it to work in Houston every week, and hauled his pro-stock Nova around the country in a 40ft live aboard car hauler.  It had 170,000 miles on it, so I got a really good deal.  The thing is in excellent condition, both body and interior.  I had the engine checked out at Parker's Diesel Service and had a glow plug and idler belt pulley replaced, and on the road to Utah we went.  It has new tires, black leather, and the basics of CD player, decent stereo, etc. 

All I've added so far is a set of Weathershield in channel vent visors and front mud flaps, and a set of N-Fab six step running boards.

Our first trip was to Utah, and we towed 14,000 lbs. worth of trailer and Jeeps on the bumper for 2300 miles.  Overall a good trip and the truck performed flawlessly.   It's now officially Sophie approved!
