How to Tow a Chevy Blazer

The Chevy Blazer is a comparatively smaller and lighter SUV than other similar vehicles on the market. Blazers are either solely front-wheel drive or have optional four-wheel drive. In order to safely tow and transport the vehicle using a tow dolly, the Blazer must be in two-wheel drive. The Chevy Blazer will fit most standard tow dollies.

Things You'll Need

  • 2 ratchet straps
  • Tow dolly
  • Vehicle with ball hitch
  • Hitch the tow dolly to the tow vehicle.

  • Slowly drive the Chevy Blazer onto the tow dolly so that the front wheels of the Blazer rest in the carrying pan of the dolly.

  • Connect the trailer brake wire to the brake wiring on the tow vehicle, located near the hitch. Depress the break pedal on the tow vehicle to check the brake wire connection. A proper connection will synchronize the break lights on the tow dolly with the lights on the tow vehicle.

  • If the Blazer has four-wheel drive capability, make sure the Blazer is in two-wheel drive by checking the 4WD button located on the dash. If the Blazer is in four-wheel drive, the button will be lit up. Press the button to disengage the four-wheel drive.

  • Connect the hook from one end of the ratchet strap to the left front lower control arm of the Blazer. Place the hook on the opposite end of the same ratchet strap to the left-front anchor support on or near the carrying pan of the dolly. Repeat the process for the right-front lower control arm. Tighten each ratchet strap until the Blazer is secured to the dolly.
