Broke the cross bar the hitch is welded to (End brackets) had 'em re-built stronger and ... Continued to tow Lumina till it died of old age and electrical issues.

page 2: Today I tow 2500 pounds of 2001 Dodge Neon with Remco Lube pump and brakes,, using the same 4" drop.. no problems so far save for a blown 8.1L Vortec in the motor home and that has nothing to do with the towed.

Oh, it tows "Heavier" than the Lumina did. I do understand why.
Is the 8.1 engine fixed now?

Don't know where I'm going, spose I'll get there anyway.

Not to be confused with the Explorer or the Explorer Sport Track.

Towed a 2005 Jeep Wrangler and now a 2012 Wrangler for combined 25,000+ miles with my W22. Very quick and easy to set up to tow. The 2012 is better since it doesn't have a locking steering wheel and the key doesn't have to be in the ignition. Curb weight on the Wrangler 2drs is approximately 3,700 lbs.
