Is your dolly any stouter than the u-haul rent ones? The only thing I am afraid of is bending the loading ramps. The axles should handle it (probably 3500# axles)

Maybe an idea! How do I get the measurements when it is 70 miles away? I have never used/hooked one up.

I didn't want to have to bring a jack and tools up there and it also has running boards that I think will have to be taken off to get it on a low-boy.
By the way... I paid $700 for it and it has a brand new aluminum radiator and hoses, working A/C, new battery, new starter, new p/s pump, new clutch, new alt, new belts, new misc electrical items, etc. Is the axle worth anyting?
