Your bf's taco should have plenty of power to tow that.

Wait? Someone bought it but didn't take it to their place to begin with? Ummmm why buy something if you don't have the means of taking it home?

Someone bought it FOR someone else who months down the line got in trouble, and now its been sitting for 6months and its time is up.

I was going to drive down tomorrow afternoon and pick up the truck with a trailer. I could flat tow it just fine with my taco if I wanted to. But its 2.5 hours away, and Im not putting someone in the bronco with no power for that long of a drive. Way to dangerous.

I have a tundra sitting next to the taco in the driveway, it would have been the first choice in towing anyways.

I dont understand, will this Bronco become yours if towed to your house? If not, then who the hell cares, if the owner of the bronco would pay 5k for it and then let it sit for 6 months and the only thing wrong with it is a bad ECU then the dumb *** deserves to have his/her truck scrapped.

I agree that its a waist, but why spend your time worrying about some douche bags problem.

said "douche-bag" is her brother, and is not around to remove it from its current location. I believe its in the street, city came by and tagged it and said move it before said date or it will be towed. Well today is the said date, and is supposed to be towed by the city if it is still in the street.

Its not that he doesnt want it, its just hes unable to get to it.

Where is he at and why is he unable to get it? (Iím suspecting jail, since it hasnít been stated) and like "Ace" has stated, just get a tow truck or rent a trailer from Uhaul. Also, what the hell is she talking about it getting "crushed"? If its parked somewhere and has been tagged by the city that doesnít mean its going to get crushed.

Sorry, but she is being extremely vague about the situation. Again, I will say that it is his problem, his fault, so why worry about it since he obviously hasnít...seeing how its been sitting for six months.
