I'm stumped. When towing my Ranger the front tires get cupped on the inside tread line. I've had it aligned and the towbar height is right. Any ideas? thanks

First off, have the tires rotated. Then inform your alignment shop that the vehicle is flat towed a lot, and the alignment needs to reflect that (usually higher caster, more negative camber, and less toe-out). If you get a deer-in-the-headlights look, find a new shop.

I agree with porscheracer. You need a better quality alignment done. Top notch alignment shops can sometimes be hard to find. We also tow a 2008 Ford Ranger 4x4, sometimes with a Harley in the box. We have found the ranger to be a great toad with or without the harley. With the saftey neutral tow kit it is faster to hook up than our CRV. Good luck.
