Flat towing sounds like a good idea until you rip a corner off.
I mean I've had a pretty decent track record of keeping the wheels attached to this pile. 11 years of abuse only have had to get carted off the field via trailer once... after this

I drive like an old women with gloves and a mask.🤡

On long trips like Glamis or further, I'll probably rent/ borrow a trailer. Otherwise, there is always the Logan's Chase team... (AAA). Those 4 tows a year aren't going to use themselves.


KM3s are night and day better than the KM1s... I can't tell any difference weight-wise.

we flat towed for years with no issue. just put it in neutral (Stick shift). I read online it will ruin everything but whatever... Never had an issue

Should be fine, just spins gear oil around. An auto needs the motor side to pump fluid to cool the clutches. As long as the gear stick doesn't bounce into gear you'll be good

ha yea sounds like everything I've found... 4wd with t case ? or 2wd
Towed a 1985 Solid axle 4x Toyota with a 22re. Manual hubs in the front. Just put it in neutral and went.

Buddy did it with his 4x 1986 Toyota 4runner also. He jack knifed by going over a small hill on a turn and the rear of his tow vehicle lost traction and his towed 4runner ended up ramming his bedside.
