Asked by Mar 01, 2018 at 07:13 PM about the 2004 Chevrolet S-10

Question type: General

Can my 2004 chevy s10 4×4, extended cab, 6 cyl,
truck tow a 2002 bmw 530i (on a tow dolley)
without damaging my s10? Only have to tow car at
most 30 miles on fairly flat land. Good idea or no?

That is a heavy load, maybe too heavy. The car with dolly may weigh over 5,000 pounds. Towing with the rear wheels on the ground would probably damaged the BMW's transmission so disconnect the driveshaft.
