DO NOT dolly tow any 4WD vehicle. Towing with only one set of wheels on the ground (front or rear) will cause severe transmission and/or transfer case damage. Tow with all four wheels either ON the ground, or OFF the ground (using a vehicle trailer).

• Tow only in the forward direction. Towing this vehicle backwards can cause severe damage to the transfer case. • Automatic transmissions must be placed in PARK for recreational towing.

• Manual transmissions must be placed in gear (not in Neutral) for recreational towing.

• Before recreational towing, perform the procedure outlined under “Shifting Into NEUTRAL (N)” to be certain that the transfer case is fully in NEUTRAL (N). Otherwise, internal damage will result.

• Towing this vehicle in violation of the above requirements can cause severe transmission and/or transfer case damage. Damage from improper towing is not covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

• Do not use a bumper-mounted clamp-on tow bar on your vehicle. The bumper face bar will be damaged.

Hope this helps you out... IF you are satisfied with my efforts please feel free to select a STAR rating on the page...
