Hello

Lil Hammer :

Here are the instuctions for flat towing.

Towing Method A - 4WD vehicles with automatic transmission - four wheels on the ground.

1 - Shift the automatic transmission in P (Park)
2 - Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position
3 - Shift the transfer lever into neutral
4 - Make sure 4WD light on instrument cluster is off
5 - Turn the ignition key to the "ACC" position to unlock the steering wheel
6 - Release the parking brake.

Stop towing the vehicle every 200 miles, with the transfer lever still in neutral, start the engine, shift into "D" (Drive) and rev the engine for about one minute to circulate the oil in the transfer case. Make sure to shift into "P" (Park) before next towing.


Towing Method B - 4WD vehicles with manual transmission - four wheels on the ground.

1 - Shift the manual transmission lever into 2nd gear
2 - Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position
3 - Shift the transfer lever into neutral
4 - Make sure 4WD light on instrument cluster is off
5 - Turn the ignition key to the "ACC" position to unlock the steering wheel
6 - Release the parking brake.

Stop towing the vehicle every 200 miles, Leave the manual transmission in 2nd gear, with the transfer lever still in neutral, start the engine and rev it for about one minute to circulate the oil in the transfer case. Make sure to shift into "P" (Park) before next towing.
