110 on a u-haul Dolly?

So, I'm picking up my 110 from the docks on Monday, and have been pricing up large car trailers and towing dolly's.
For a one-way journey back to MI, a dolly is Waaaaay cheaper than a full trailer.

So, any reasons why it won't fit?

Will pulling the transfer box lever to neutral be acceptable, or shall I disconnect the rear propshaft off at the axle drive snout and tie it up out of the way?

Remove the drive shaft @ the rear diff. Best of luck we have one to collect tomorrow as well but we are going to drive it.

Hmmm, I've checked the u-haul sites, and these units are rated to just under 4000lbs max vehicle weight. I reckon an early 110 is up around 4200lbs.

Close enough to avoid issues? I don't know if these have electric / surge brakes or not (I'd hope they do).

I'll be towing behind a '99 F250.

Good point on checkking the rear axle fluid. What grade of oil is it?

regular gear oil is fine, I think it is 90+ Wt.

No brakes on the dolly, I would make sure they have a trailer available too because your 110 won't be in their system and for liability reasons if there is a question about the weight they won't give you the benefit of the doubt.

Get it in town and tow it out there and back. $50 + $20 for insurance.

the weight is fine. check the tire pressure on the trailer as well knicks and cuts in the side walls. People don't exactly take care of uhaul stuff.. incase anyone was wondering, A medium size uhaul van will do a stand still...

YOU must have a cheap U-haul place? All my local ones (in fact all the ones i can find) say $40/day + insurance + tax???


I've been offered use of a co-workers 8,000lb trailer for $75 which I'll probably take him up on... It's fully set up with jacks, straps, ramps, etc - will make my life easier for sure.

Good decision, probably the safer way to do it.

I pulled my 109 from the port of charleston to atlanta on a Uhaul dolly with the rear prop shaft removed. I pulled it with my RRC and it was fine.
