Ron :

Hello,

Yes the 1988 has pleant of power to safely tow you Tahoe but you should not expect much for mileage.

Customer:

what do you think would be the best way to tow it, tow dollie, car hauler,etc..


 

Customer:

are you still here or should I ahhh forget it

Ron :

Unless you pull the drive shafts, you are best to do it with a car hauler with all four wheels off the ground.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
