I am going to pulling a 1984 S10 4x4 with a Tow Bar from Washington to California. I plan to pull both front and rear driveline for the trip and wire in some trailer tow lights.

My question is on the safety chains do I hook them up to the tow bar like a normal trailer or do they have to go back to the truck?

Safety chains attach from vehicle to vehicle, preferably frame to frame.......Dennis

Yup and I'll throw in that they should be crossed.

OK Thanks guys, after thinking about it for a bit I pretty much decided that is the way it should be.
