ha I'm revisiting this. PGH since you had a little experience with the 650 you might be able to answer me here. The trailer I had been using for my GK13 won't hold the 34...so I'm considering getting some street tires for towing and four-wheeling it. Of course I don't plan on trying to break any speed records or anything but do you see any issues with pulling it 65mph down the highway?

Replace all the wheel bearings with quality ones in addition to using DOT rated tires on all four corners. Check into flat towing laws in TX whether the vehicle has to have a street license to be towed. Lighting could be added using a cheap pair of Harbor Freight magnetic trailer lights instead of trying to patch into the buggy wiring.

This is very cool and convenient too! Do you need any road permit to do that?

Technically any vehicle that is flat towed should have valid street plates to be legal. If you are just going from a no-ride campground to the ORV park, it is less of an issue and usually appreciated by the non off-road visitors and campground staff.
