Tonya needs some help from Franklin.
Pulling Favors is the first Strangers and Freaks mission in GTA 5 that involves Franklin Clinton. Despite being more of a side quest rather than the main storyline mission, completing Pulling Favors with a Gold Medal is essential in getting a 100% completion in GTA 5.
We have outlined everything you need to know about Pulling Favors and how you can get a Gold Medal for completing the mission in GTA 5.
Pulling Favors Synopsis
Franklin bumps into Tonya in their neighborhood in Strawberry. Franklin and Tonya catch up for a bit before Tonya asks Franklin for some help with JB’s job, saying JB is going to lose everything if Franklin doesn’t help Tonya with this one job.
Franklin asks Tonya where JB is. Tonya tells Franklin that JB is out somewhere smoking. Franklin tells Tonya he doesn’t know anything about towing cars, but Tonya insists she will show Franklin the ropes as they go.
Franklin agrees, and the pair make their way to the Davis Sheriff Impound to pick up the tow truck for the job. After driving around town for a while, Franklin and Tonya get a tip from the Sheriff’s office about an abandoned car parked along San Andreas Avenue. Franklin and Tonya quickly make their way to the location to pick up the junker.
The pair arrive at the location and spot the junker almost immediately. With Tonya’s help, Franklin sets up the tow truck’s hook without too much effort. With the junker secured, the pair slowly make their way back to the Davis Sheriff Impound where Franklin leaves Tonya, the tow truck, and the junker.
