    Default any one ever make a tow dolly or a lift for a pickup to pull cars like the repo guys

    i'm looking to make my truck pull some cars to make a lil $$ with my brother, a tow dolly would probly be the easyest but i was thinking a flip out lift would be cool and make it so the car/truck only needs 2 good tires to tow it.
    any one ever make one of these ?? or a tow dolly??
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. james@newyorkmetalart.com

    Default yes

    I made one for towing cars to the demolition derby. unfortunately I did not take any photos of it but I know the guy I sold it to I could always see if he still has it and see if I could get some photos if you like. It was a fairly simple design, no suspension, light truck rims and tyres and a standard towing hitch.

    Check your e-mail as I've sent you quite a few to the address listed. It would only let me send a few at a time. You should recieve a total of about 30 pages enclosed as attachments. Let me know if you get them and if it's what you were looking for. If you can't open them for some reason send me a street address and I will burn a copy to disc and send via snail mail. Dave

    Cool

    I built some from an axle and 3x3x1/4 angle and 3x3 tube for the tongue. I inverted the angle ---^--^ for the wheels to set in with the axle welded in the center. The tires sit on the axle also...Bob

    how did it turn ?? dosent it need to alow the wheel mounts to turn and pivot so the thing can go around corners.

    wow!! when you said a set of plans you were not kidding. thats one sweet tow dolly, way nicer than i need but it should realy help get me going inthe right direction.
    do you make them a lot ?? i would think you should be able to get a good $$ for that setup. its realy nice. if i can get the $$ togather i just might make some by the print to sell to the snow birds.

    dabar, I'd love a copy of those plans if I could get one. I've got plans in mind, but I'd love to see yours.
