I have a '06 V6 LT2x4 trailblazer that we need to be towing a 5x8 u-haul trailer with....is my trailblazer going to work ok for this? And, my husband thinks that he should tow in 4 wheel drive "so we don't blow up the engine."!!! It think that it sounds like a bad idea but i don't know much about it....can anyone help me out???? Thanks

I can't think of any advantage to towing in 4wd, only drawbacks. Your TB should tow that small trailer without any problem in 2wd. Remember to load it a little heavier in the front (tongue weight) so it tracks nice and straight.

If you mean full time 4wd (not part time awd), it's a bad idea to use 4wd on pavement. The inner wheels travel less distance during turns than the outer wheels. Unless they can slip a little (like on dirt, mud, gravel, etc) they will wear bad and cause driveline wear, plus under some conditions you could loose control during turns, if the inner wheel gets better traction than the outer, it can actually "pull" the front end into a tighter turn than you planned. It's more of a concern in low range than high range, but still not a good idea.

One of my Cigarette Lighters has come loose and hangs out by the wire. How can I remove the panel so I can repair this problem.

I saw this in previous post, but no answers. Has anyone found a good solution for the lighted buttons on the steering wheel wearing out?
