I towed a fully loaded 12'x6' U-Haul from Schererville, IN to Naperville, IL helping my brother move. That was fun on I-355. First of all, it's got some of the most expensive tolls around and I had 2 more axles. I want to say I paid like $4.20 for the first toll on there and a dollar something for every toll after that. The Jeep performed perfectly though. I didn't overheat and it didn't even struggle. That was before I had my Aussie in the rear though. I don't think I'd do that again with the Aussie in there. I think I'd end up snapping an axle shaft trying to back into a driveway.

Yikes I know those tolls and they suck. I love the new leg of 355 to I80 but avoid it if I can due to those tolls. They raise them every year and I heard another hike is coming for 2014. IL sux.

Answer to #1:

To add to this, you should have a instructions/manual/ of some sort from the company, unless you brought them off of a PO, then I could understand?!

I'm pretty sure Illinois at least owns their tollways. Indiana leased the Indiana Toll Road to some foreign company for so many years. The money made doesn't even go back to the state. The Chicago Skyway is the same way. I believe that's leased to Russians.

I had one guy stop to ask me about buying my ZJ from me before. I've had people ask me at gas stations, stop lights, and parking lots more times than I can count asking to buy my car. My car is one of the "hotter" ghetto cars in my area. Unilke 90% of the Caprices in my area, my car is in great shape, no rust, no dents, almost perfect paint, a perfect interior, and no big rims. I'm not selling it so it can turn into that. Caprices were actually number one or two for a while on the most stolen cars list in the Chicagoland area a few years in a row.

That's not just Chicago, it's any urban area. My buddy in Savannah caught some homies trying to steal his mom's baby blue Caprice. It was mint with the police package and bigger motor. They were probably going to put rubber band tires with big rims and paint the Lucky Charms cereal stuff on it.

Yeah... For some reason I think I may have already shared this story on here but here goes... I was in Louisville maybe like 8 years ago with my car and went to park it in a parking garage to go get some dinner. We were walking out of the parking garage and I saw a pickup pull into the garage with two guys in it and the truck left with just one guy in it. You had to pay $2 to get into the garage and pay the rest on your way out. There's no way he paid like $4 or whatever it would have been to drop a dude off in the garage. I found this rather odd. I decided it wasn't safe to leave my car in the garage and went back to get it. Instead of just leaving the garage, I decided to drive all the way to the top to see if I could figure out where the other guy went. When I was on my way back down, both guys were back in the truck, backed into the spot my car was originally in, waiting for me. As soon as I paid to get out, they were hot on my tail. They followed me through the city until I made my way back to I-65. Mind you, I was speeding through the city and occasionally blowing red lights. They were following me closely and doing the same. I made it back onto I-65 and managed to hit about 95 mph and they backed off. I'm pretty sure the older Silverado they were driving had a 4.3 and maxed out at about 80 mph. If I didn't go back, I would have lost my car.

Yep, I would have called the police for sure. They were probably armed as well.
