Question about 1991 Toyota Pickup

Towing 91 pickup

I am getting conflicting answers as to whether I need to disconnect the driveshaft on a 91 toyota pickup to tow it via a dolly. Do you know if I need to disconnect it or not?
Also, can it be towed backwards?
Thanks

How can I tow a 1999 dodge intrepid


It would work best on a tow dolly. I imagine that has an automatic transmission. Its a front wheel drive so you want the drive tires off the ground if you want the least amount of grief. *** Make sure your dolly swivels or you will be sorry.

Dolly Tow a 1994 Toyota pick up 4X4 with back wheels on ground


If the rear wheels are going to be on the ground and turning, then disconnect and remove the driveshaft going to the rear differential. That would be the easiest and safest way to prevent damage to the transmission and drivetrain and would also make the vehicle a bit easier to control.

Can I tow my 2000 s type jaguar behind my motorhome


Yes if it is on a trailer.
You should never tow a vehicle with all four wheels on the ground unless you can disconnect the driveshaft.
And a car dolly won't work if the vehicle is rear wheel drive or all wheel drive.

Can I tow my 2002 grand caravan es on all 4 tires?


The answer is yes and no, but more no than yes. How far do you need to tow the vehicle? It is not recommended that any vehicle with automatic transmission be towed more than a few miles. With an auto transmission, towing without the engine running will not allow fluid to circulate throughout transmission, causing major damage to the gears in the transmission. If possible, use a tow dolly instead of towing on all four wheels.

I need towing a firebird 500 miles, how can i do


If towing that far of a distance place the front wheels on a tow dolley and pull it from the front with the car in nuetral. That is entriley to far to be pull from the rear will mess up the steering linkages.

Hello--- can I tow a 2000 AWD volvo wagon with a dolly? Thanks!


Um...no...in order to tow you need rated tow-cable or shock absorbing chains or a tow hitch. you would also need hazard lights that also show which way the towed vehicle is turning (ppl cant see the towing car's turn signals) usually there are magetics ones that hook up to the towing cars trailer light system.
Safe towing by LAW is the issue here...could you tow it with a dolly...yes...but is it against the law..YES and the LAW protects you from hurting yourself,others, and property.
I hope this answers your question. and please be safe. (dont do it)

Can you put a towbar in front of the mustang


If it is automatic then would suggest no doing this. When towing with rear wheels trailing the driveshaft is still turning the tailshaft of transmission,< rear wheel drive > and without motor running the transmission doesn't circulate fluid to cool it off. if it is the only way to move it for you without a trailor then it's best to remove driveshaft and use a car dolly to tow. If it is standard then driveshaft is not does'nt have to be removed. Either way a dolly is what you need to tow it, < towbar won't work > and old school chain or strap can damage fron bumper shell.
