How Do You Steal the Tow Truck in GTA 5?

Grand Theft Auto 5 is an open world game that allows players to do whatever they want. It’s filled with crime, violence, and a lot of fun.

One of the most popular activities in the game is stealing cars, but one of the toughest cars to steal is the tow truck. So how do you steal the tow truck in GTA 5?

First off, you’ll need to locate a tow truck in the game. These can be found driving around various locations in Los Santos and Blaine County.

Once you find one, you’ll need to get close enough that you can interact with it. You can jump onto the hood or open the driver’s side door and then use your fists or a weapon to knock out the driver.

Once you’ve taken care of the driver, all you need to do is hop into the tow truck and drive away. Unfortunately, there are a few things that make this trickier than just stealing any other car. For starters, police will be on your tail as soon as they see you stealing it – so it’s important to keep ahead of them or lose them completely.

Another issue is that once you start driving away with the tow truck, all nearby police units will be alerted and will attempt to stop you. This means that it’s best to find an isolated spot with no witnesses before stealing a tow truck and making your escape.

Finally, once you do manage to get away with it, make sure that you store it somewhere safe like your garage or a secluded area where no one can see it. If not, police could come looking for it and if they find it they’ll impound it – leaving you without your newly stolen vehicle.


To steal a tow truck in GTA 5 successfully requires some planning ahead of time and quick thinking during execution. You must first locate a tow truck in Los Santos or Blaine County, then take out its driver either by force or stealthily enter its cabin before quickly escaping from any nearby police units. Lastly, make sure to store your stolen vehicle somewhere safe afterwards so that law enforcement doesn’t catch up with it!
