Maybe I'm just showing my stupidity and all (which is probably the case) but isn't the idea of a dolley so that you don't have to remove the shaft or do anything else of the sort? Or, couldn't you tow it from the rear end, with a steering column lock, and not have to do anything else?
I'm probably wrong, so don't listen to me unless someone else confirms .
For a cross country trip ,like you are doing,I would stick with the trailer plan you were originally going to do. I f you do choose the dolly route,front wheels on the dolly with driveshaft pulled and trans plugged ,even on a stick car with this distance.
Also if you are going cross country, check on the laws for each state. I don't think you can use a dolly on an unregistered car in my state. I don't know your case but if there is some strange law its better to know about it before being stranded.
I also heard the dollys were hard to back up. If you dont have the wheel fixed. I sold a car and it was towed on a dlly. The new oner later told me the worst part of the trip was getting out of a restaurant in town.
Thanks all. I have towed with a dolley but was just wondering why. I'll take the safe route and pull it. I just wanted to keep it in so when I get there I can just get in the car and drive it away. Thanks again! ::
