Car Dolly, Trailer or Flat Bed Towing

Can i use the car hauler or front wheel dolly from U-Haul to bring my dead truck from DFW Airport to North Central Ford?

Or is the flat bad Tow Services my only option?

I dont think the dolly will be wide enough, I had a hard time trying to find one to pull my brothers expedition home. I think the best bet is to find a flat bed or roll back truck to haul it. Check the dimensions out and see if you can find a trailer you could borrow. Good luck with the haul.

Idk if I'd rise a rear wheel dolly. I'd only put the front tires on it, and only if the weight limit is ok. Other than that, I'd just get a flat bed wrecker.

How far do you have to go? You only wanna go so far with the rears on the ground with the tranny in neutral.. if you can get the rear wheels on a dolly you can use your seatbelt to lock the steering wheel and tow it that way. Duallys are hard to fit on a flatbed sometimes especially if they show up with a 19 foot bed.. If you have to go far you could always pull your driveline and put the front wheel dolly but it all depends on what the weight limit on the dolly is. some tow companies wont put a dually on a flat bed and will charge you for a medium duty wrecker.
