Customer Question

I have a 2008 Ford Ranger 4x4 without a natural switch or manual locks on the front wheels, I was told to tow my truck behind my RV I will have to install natural tow kit. I looked on line and it showed a kit but where would it connect to and will there be any additional accessories need to install before towing
JA: How many miles are on the car? Is this the first time you're dealing with this issue?
Customer: mileage 100k and this is the first time, I was towing a front wheel drive on a dolly before.
JA: What is the model of your '08 Ford?
Customer: Ranger
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I think I would have a mechanic install first
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: not at the moment
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

I know there is a disconnect for the drive shaft available but I would like to go with the natural connect switch--the switch is , available by Ford. If you are unable to answer the question I would like to discontinue the free trial and I will check with other sources.
