tow question

when i had a non turbo ba xr6 ute, i got the dealer to put on a 2T tow bar.
when i got my xr6t ute, the dealer said i couldn't have a 2T tow bar on it, said turbo's weren't too good at towing, so i settled for a 1500kg tow instead.

it's never bugged me till i sold the boat and now lookin for a bigger one! ders not much around at 1500kg!

any thoughts on y turbos dot tow too good?

Hmmm dont know of many trucks that dont have turbo's and they seem to pull pretty darn big loads.
Think he might be having a lend of you.
Thats the whole idea of having a turbo, give you extra torque so you CAN tow etc !!!!!!

Re: tow question

oh, that might make sense. even in the brochure for the ute, where it has the tables of all the extras and options, it doesn't show and option for a 2t tow on a ur6t.
anyways, thanks guys. might jst have to put a tow bar on my truck
