Towing my LS Crew Cab to get some Exhaust Work
Permalink  
 


Was wondering if anyone had a trailer or had some information to help me get my 1991 Crew Cab towed to Stan's Headers in Auburn?!

I need to get one of my headers modified and then the exhaust modified and mated up to the new headers with the V-band flanges.  I don't think my truck would fit on a U-haul car transport and then they likely wouldn't let me tow with it as I would need at least a 6.000 lb truck to meet their requirements.

I do have AAA plus that I could probably use one way, but would have to likely pay to get it towed back.  It is the last big job on the truck that needs to happen.

A normal car trailer(like my 7'x16') has a 68" wide deck, an equipment trailer 1 size larger normally has a 70" wide deck....in-laws just towed their new Tahoe(68" wide track) back from Idaho instead of driving it which is 2" narrower than a Silverado/Sierra(70" wide track) with their 70" wide deck small equipment trailer.

Why would you need to tow it back?

Personally, if it can drive there and back I'd put some truck manifolds on it and some cheap mufflers and avoid the tow bill.

I’d be happy to help if there weren’t something stuck on my trailer right now. Hopefully someone can.

Well, the width across my tires is a little over 80" outside to outside. My track is close to 70"
165" Wheelbase
About 250" (20'-10") bumper to bumper
and the curb weight is like 5,200 or 5,500 or something like that.

I have been putting off the electrical wiring until the final step. That way I can stay focused on the rewire, start to finish. So...doesn't run yet!

I do have 2 sets of truck manifolds now if you need a pair....had to replace the ones on my Sierra while replacing the catalytic convertors and y-pipe assembly, snapped 2 studs and wanted some new parts on there for longevity(start the heat-cycles over). Both sets would either need some new studs or bolts, or cut and drill a couple out.

I have truck manifolds Mike, but thanks for offering. My full-length headers are close, just need some work that I don't have tools for in my shop. The LH header might need some surgery to clear the shift linkage.
