The only time you can is when the motor is running.It keeps hydraulic pressures up, so damage does not occur.In no way tow it with the motor not running.It is the same as putting the car in neutral and rolling whilst the motor is running.Keep speeds slow.If the motor is not running it needs to be put on a tilt/tray truck or have the drive shafts disconnected so it can be towed without the transmission turning.If the tow is only a very short distance,it needs to be done at a crawling pace.(usually emergencies only)Hope this helps

Transfer case and transmission should be in neutral Since you are using a rope, someone needs to steer and brake If the engine runs this is much easier to do. Be careful using nylon straps and rope. they stretch and store energy. If you stress them they can snap and do serious damage. A chain is generally better as it will go limp.

HOW TO TOW MY 4X4 JEEP WITH MY PICK-UP TRUCK? WHAT TO DO WITH GEARS?


Hello! Please tow with the front of Jeep at the Pick-up bumper (reverse) Your odometer will not turn (no miles registered for the tow) also, the brake lights should be wired together so you have brake lights on the towed vehicle.Or buy the kit. Put the Jeep in neutral. Chain the front suspension of Jeep so you only have 15-20 degrees movement. Chain the cars together with two different sets of chains- one to the tow hook and one frame to frame. Put a sign and red rag on rear of Jeep.This is a safe tow.

I am towing my 2001 jeep grand cherokee 4x4 in a tow dolly. Do I need to disconnect the rear drive shaft before towing?


Yes, because it will turn the transmission while you are towing. The problem is that the trans will not be getting any lubrication while it turns. Hope this helps.

I need to find out how to tow a jeep grand cherokee limited with full time 4 wheel drive all 4 wheels down behind a motor home. I hope you can help me. Thank you


You can tow in with the transfer case in neutral as long as all 4 wheels are on the ground like with a tow bar.If you use a tow dolly you will have to remove the rear drive shaft.This transfer case has a viscous coupling that will over heat if all the wheel dont turn at the same rate.

99 jeep grand cherokee limited, have no 4wd. fluid was empty when i got truck filled case, still no 4wd. 242 quad trac. put vehicle on lift shifted into drive rear wheels only engage. any ideas?


If it was ever towed with the wheels on the ground (not dollied) then the transfer case is probably "burned out" and you will need to replace it. These models of jeeps are full time 4WD and MUST be dollied or towed on a carrier or rollback type truck. Unless they have manual locking hubs.
