I am going to trailer my LT (heaven forbid) and would like to know what I should get for a tie down system and where to get it. Thanks.
In addition to several other posts over the years, this one starts a thread that is a pretty good read on tieing down the LT. Tie down straps are available at most hardware, automotive, home improvement stores, as well as at Wal-Mart, etc. Soft ties are available at most motorcycle dealerships. Good luck.Arby60 said:I am going to trailer my LT (heaven forbid) and would like to know what I should get for a tie down system and where to get it. Thanks.
That's a good idea. I have been using the soft ties with my Rampage lift and they work pretty well, but the tie down straps are too long with them. I might have to give your way a shot. Thanks for the info...I love this site.javandyke said:FWIW I have done away with the soft ties since they are not really necessary and they add extra effort. What I've done is to cut the hook from the non-ratchet end of the tie down strap then fold the strap in half using the fold as my "soft tie". I then slip the folded end around the forks and pull the cut ends through to make a loop and insert the opposite two ends into the ratchet taking care to not overfill the ratchet. On the rear I just use a length of strap without looping it. I have towed many thousands of miles like this and it works fine. No soft ties means one less thing to fuss with.
