Question UHAUL

Quick question, can you actually tow a 2001 2 door GTP with a car dolly from uhaul. I dont know why but I think I remember someone back in the day saying they were to low. Does anyone know?? Yes I KNOW it says you can on the web page, but can you really do it??


Thank guys.

Yes.

Towed my girlfriends 99 Camry with a dolly. A 3800 shouldn't be any different.

The ratchet strap pulleys might be a little tight depending on bumper clearance but I was able to tighten them with my girlfriend's car with little issue.

I went with the trailer vs the dolly for the cars on our last move. Tracks better, easy to back up.

fwiw if your gtp is lowered, it does SUCK to get it on a trailer or car dolly.

bring a lot of 2x10's or random scrap wood to get it high enough.

but yeah. it'll go. it just really, really really sucks.

Well car did NOT fit on the dolly. One tire did, the other hung over by about 4 inches. When we returned the dolly the guy said there is 3 sizes on dolly and we must have gotten the smallest (41) series. Then wanted us to drive to Harvard to get the bigger one. What a joke

Thanks, and I put the new TPS sensor on and drove it today. The car still shifts funny and my light came on today. Scanned it and again I got the code p0121. I think I'm done with the car. I'm taking it to zzp in 2 weeks from now and they are going to fix the burning oil issue. I know I'm going to lose my ass but I think I'm going to sell it or trade it in.

Well, your proper fucked though. You aren't going to get shit for it as a trade-in, you probably aren't going to sell it for much, your best bet is to part it out, put it back to stock and sell it as a stock gtp or something.

No reason to give up on it, you just need to stop taking it to a bunch of hacks. If I had the room I'd be more than happy to fix it for you, but there's just no way. Plus, who knows what ZZP's hack ass people did to it. FUCK that place, I wouldn't piss in their mouth if their throat was on fire.

Hard to own a modded performance car when you need other people to work on it and then on top of it being a nearly dead platform. Get yourself something fun that has an actual aftermarket and shops that can work on it nearby. You'll enjoy life more.

Yeah, once you go all in with the 3800, if your not a tuner or good with electronic trouble shooting it a total nightmare.
