    Towing an M1009 Blazer

    Thanks Barrman. And everyone. I agree it's best not to flat tow or use a dolly, but this was going to be a matter of convenience and time saving. This truck was in Charlotte, so if anyone here is who bought it, looks like you got a good one.

    Towing an M1009 Blazer

    XM157 DRAKE 12-Ton, 8x8, Amphibious (Bigger than a Duck)

    I believe the DRAKE, unlike the DUKW or the Super DUKW, had a tailgate that lowered for access to the bed. Don't know if it could be lowered while underway. Tried to watch the movie but it said an error occurred. I'll watch it later. Got to love the DRAKE!

    Need to eyeball some wiring

    No, none of the wires under the dash have tags that I can see. There's about two inches of it coming off the back of the assy switch and I can't see any other loose ends.
