    It's really just for insurance purposes. Hell say you're towing a Yugo, haha.

    I put down a 1998 Toyota Tacoma RWD Base when I rented the car hauler. Luckily the 2000-ish Chevy Tahoe we were using to tow it had a high payload capacity. Paid $70 dollars - $20 for the base rental price unlimited mileage, and $50 for the most expensive insurance coverage in case my friend rolled the truck or something.

    Just get the quote and reserve it saying your truck is a 6 lug 4x4, the guy working won't know the difference and uhaul will let you pull any of their trailers with a six lug. I just rented a 6x12 enclosed from them like a month ago

    Honestly I think you should just buy a rear differential and front drivetrain from him and get some cheap rollers off Craigslist, and tow it with a dolly. You're going to need it for your conversion anyway.

    Yup, I've rented more uhauls than I care to mention so I'm used to the hassles. I had one of their 15' trucks over capacity in it's box, then hitched the taco on an auto transport to it, that 4.8L V8 could barely go up hills all the way to AZ haha

    Aww you got the v8 U-Haul? I rented one once with a v10. Was one of the smaller trucks too.

    How did that thing handle?

    They're pretty common on enclosed trailers and boat trailers

    Did you buy it like that?

    Out of curiosity, why do you need a trailer?
