OP i wouldnt use the freestyle to tow it home...you also have to factor in the weight of the trailer....get a proper truck and trailer...it will be a lot safer that way

Hahaha well we are doing it. My dad said he knows it'll tow it, he's just worried about getting pulled over. It's an awd so it'll take it nice.

Do you know what the tow rating is on the freestyle?

No. Not sure, but we've pulled a shit ton with it before and we are using a dolly to bring the truck home. And it's 95% highway so we should be alright. Ill post pictures of it later. But I'm buying this one cause its auto and trading my dad for his manual.
