John,
The Dura-Torque Axle allows a four wheel trailer to be towed on 3 wheels for up to 100 miles at no more than 30 mph according to my manual. I experienced a blown rear curbside tire about 45 miles west of Amarillo, TX. with subsequent sheetmetal and outrigger damage. I towed at 40 mph but was careful of irregularities in the road like potholes so that my exposed disc rotor was not damaged.

Prices are about $33 and $70 respectively.

Owners manual

There is an owners manual for a 66 Overlander at the VAC web site. I know yours is a 69, but there may be useful information never-the-less. There are also a number of service bulletins you may be interested in too. Here is the url:

I think it was John Irwin that also pointed out that the factory mounted spares under the front need some shims to stop the rattles so that weld failures don't happen. It could have been Jack that pointed that out too, but at any rate if you have the under front spare, you should look into bracing it a bit better to avoid movements.

Previous Thread

JDLeezer, you might want to view this previous thread. Several members were good enough to provide photos in response to my question. There are some good ones of the undermount type. I think that the bracket is available although one could certainly make one themselves without much trouble. Good Luck.

My original post shows how I installed a foam block to keep the spare from bouncing in the carrier.
