I still recommend the American CD. Built very well. I sold Mine cheap a couple months ago .. no room to store it . You are correct Your Manual section 5-1 states as you say towing front wheels lifted (dolly or wrecker) 4 wheel D in neutral Max speed 55MPH. towing from the rear (not normal) 35MPH

Also drag racer,you should probably tow 4 down but if you want to use a dolly American Car Dolly is an excellent company and product, I've been using the dolly for 3 years now .

You will love the tilt bed and fixed ramps of the Stehl Tow dolly.

No crawling behind the wheels to place and the remove them.

If you're crawling behind the wheels to do anything with the ACD ramps you're doing it all wrong.

The Truck Weighs about 4500 lbs Curb weight. Tow vehicle is my 1992 American Eagle 8.3 450 hp So power and stopping isn't a concern. I've been researching Dolly's and my 1st priority is a Braking system .
Concerns: The small ST 8 ply tires bother Me a little--Will they hold up with approximately 3000 lbs of front end weight ?
Does anyone here Use a Dolly for Tucks of this weight ?
Which MFG Dolly would you recommend ?

Thanks
Check out Landgrebe tow dollies at www.towtrailer.com
Robust construction, caster steering.

Thanks Guys !
For all of your recommendations and suggestions though this thought process.
Picking up the Stehl today and ordering Nice Aluminum 15 in Trailer wheels and E rated tires for piece of mind, Leaving for Florida the middle of Feb.
Although it has less than 2000 miles on it I'll also pull the Drums off to check the Brakes and re-pack the bearings- should be Good to Roll.

Chuck, I just saw that you sold your car and trailer and have retired from drag racing.

I have nothing to contribute about a tow dolly as I have not used one. A good friend that we traveled with about 15 years ago purchased a used one and I got it road worthy for them but never did actually use it. I have only either towed our race trailers or flat-towed our Jeeps. About four years ago I sold our race trailer and now exclusively tow four-down.

Congrats on going full-time retirement mode and hitting the road for enjoyments vs. racing. Just curious how many miles your 1992 Eagle has on it now? Still running ok and holding up well?
