I plan to tow a Jeep Wrangler, weighing about 3200 lbs, a distance of 125 miles. I have a choice of a car dolly or a auto transport. What concerns me with the transport, which weighs 2200 lbs, is my lack of a weight distribution hitch? Will I be OK for one time use or should I use the dolly? I intend to remove the drive shaft if I rent the dolly.
My truck is a DC V-6 automatic with the factory tow package.
If you're ok with removing the drive shaft, I'd just use the tow dolly. It's a lot lighter and will be easier on your Tacoma. Otherwise, I'm assuming you're renting the auto transport flatbed in which case you wouldn't be able to just throw on a weight distribution set-up. You'd most likely be fine without a w/d set-up using the Uhaul, just be mindful of where the jeep is placed on the flatbed and you may have to stop and make some adjustments to find that sweet spot.
