newbie in augusta

hi everybody, just bought my first stang, 03 gt, was told about this site while buying floor mats, would like to learn everything i can about my new ride, and this looks like the place to do it. quick question, can i put a tow package on my car safely? u-haul says yes, manual says no, does anyone here have one on their car

First off, welcome.
About the towing package..I've seen it done but I wouldn't recommend it. Your suspension and drivetrain is not built to haul stuff. A guy in my hometown put a towing kit on his 01GT and his rear springs went out in under a year and his transmission burned up in 2 years, he used it to haul his ski boat. I would recommend buying a nice cheap truck, I'm sure there's several around that way, and using that to haul stuff.

I've seen them, and it can be done, but is NOT recommended.

It just doesn't look good usually...

I did think it would be cool to rig up a custom towing system with a removable piece in your bumper that reveals the place to put a hitch...hm...
