I'd have to look at my paperwork for the exact figure. I know that I'm just sensible with it.
With my 87 Bonnie, before the transmission took a puke, I towed home the donor Bonnie with my 87. LMAO
I did the 90 mile drove with it in tow on the dolly!
I'm a little easier on the 99. The biggest load I've towed is a garden tractor on a utility trailer back from New York state this past fall. Wasn't bad, but I could definitely feel the load back there!
Yeah, you know it isn't so much that these cars won't tow, or the trans won't pull it, but they get incredibly hot while doing so that the trans will take a puke.... and the 87'* had a really freaky design when it came to tranny cooling... My good friend was on #3 at 80,000 miles... Towed a 14' boat through the mountains... Tranny burned up... I think tranny cooling is a huge factor when towing any amount of weight...
The largest I have seen for the 87-99 bonnies is a 3000 lb hitch... I'm just one of those guys that would want a 5000 lb hitch, and never tow that much...LMAO
I may get a 3000lb hitch one day, but it would have to have a removeable ball... Don't want a whole ball thingy hanging out back there..
